This is our go-to family place. Food always consistently good. Service excellent and rolls hot! Chicken tenders and the grilled chicken salad are usually ordered by some of the group. (Salads are large) Finally the ice cream "Baked potato" is a unique ending to a good meal.

Our server should win an award. I can't say we have ever had such wonderful service. We had a toddler with us and she knew exactly what to do. Unfortunately the old codger couple next to us despised the baby. The food was great. Everything was as expected, arrived timely and the fact that our server was so pleasant brought... More

I always go to RJ'S when in town. I think happy hour is unending and the food is very good. Nice clean place. And don't forget the rolls, they are really good.

Our family of nine had dinner here last night and the experience was great. Wonderful waitress, great service and delicious food. The highlight was the Idaho Baked Potato Dessert. Could not believe that dessert. Highly recommend this eatery to everyone. Convenient to Knoxville and airport.

One of the better menu's I've seen in Knoxville area. Have tried several things and all are good. The parking lot always looks full, but it's a very large place, so there are usually seats available-don't be fooled. Have had prime rib and a burger. Both were great. Rocky Top burger won't steer you wrong.

Stopped here last night on a whim with the wife for dinner. Both of us had the Sirloin Steak which is fantastic. The rolls are hot and fresh as is everything else we had. It's rare that I have zero things to nit pick at a restaurant. We even asked to substitute an item (side for a salad) and the... More

It was nice to find a restaurant that advertises the truth in their menu. We ordered breaded mushrooms that were hand breaded, unfortunately, the mushrooms were a little stale for me and could have been fresher in addition, they really need some seasoning since they were bland. the fries were crisp and hot, a+. The chicken philly was advertised to... More

RJs has excellent drink specials during happy hour 4pm-Close. BOGO draft beer with a decent selection. I suggest to order the potato wedges (not on the menu). They are delicious, loaded with bacon, green onion, tomatoes, and sour cream for only $3.99. The menu prices are a little high but everything is handmade and delicious.

My hubbie and I have been coming here for over a year now. It is a great place to relax with very friendly and welcoming staff.

Our favorite dish is the blackened grouper. Huge... More

Went to RJ's based on a recommendation of a friend. Waitress was great. I had the fried grouper and it was very good. The sides were more like cafeteria quality items. Green beans tasted like cheap canned green beans, and the mash potatoes were not real/fresh potatoes. Gravy over the potatoes tasted like it came out of a package too.... More
