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.

Always has a good family crowd from Thursday on. Plenty of good hardy Italian food and quick, great service no matter how busy it gets. Great for parents with kids, plenty to choose from, chicken fingers to pasta with butter to pizza or pasta. All good.

We frequent this establishment on the "Post Rd" at least twice a month, frequently splitting an entre' as they are very generous. The owner is always friendly and makes us feel welcome each time we enter. The salads are fresh and they will alter their menu to fit your needs. A real staple.

The scallops were so amazing, we took a pizza home for dinner. No need to stand in line for seafood any longer when I am at the Connecticut shore, T.j.s is decorated nicely and the food is great!

Thank Lee L
