Came in for dinner, usually I would come in for lunch. Dinner was good with your typical Italian food. Place is usually busy with the locals so that should tell you it's worth it. Prices and service is good. Not a whole lot of space but ok. Never a bad meal

We eat here, or get take out, at least seven times a month. Have never had a bad meal and have enjoyed many great meals. Staff and family is professional, friendly and go out of their way to make the experience a pleasant one. Thank you TJ's!

If I lived in the area this would be a regular spot for me, I am sure. The service was great. The food was great. Many options on the menu it was hard to choose. Would definitely recommend!

Been here numerous times and each time had a great meal and great service. Prices are in line with most other Italian places. You can set outside or in. Pizza is the best around. Take the time to try

Breakfast is quite good. Lunch is decent. Prices average, with a large menu. Good place for a quick work lunch, or family feed.

Excellent pizza, casual atmosphere. We read the good reviews but were quite impressed and gave it a try. The pizza was excellent, the best we have had recently.

The customer service is the best. The staff always welcomes you like family. They are quick to take your drink and appetizer order. Our kids love the calamari and pizza. TJ Seafood special is always great- large shrimp and scallops- I have them hold pasta. Save a few calories!

Many local people talk this place up - but it's average. Nothing has impressed me enough to go back.
