Had the Turkey Reuben and there was very little meat on the sandwich. Maybe it was an off day but it was very disappointing.

Just happened to drive by this beautiful old building and realized there was a pub in the lower level. What a great stop - fire in the fireplace offered warmth from the cold outside; the staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and food was outstanding!

Try the Cool Cali Wrap. It's my favorite, along with TJ's Brushetta. Two of my favorites. Unique location.

First time visit to this pub with my wife. No "wow" experience or bad experience either. That is why I gave this place a average rating. Service was good and the waitress was helpful. Picked the housemade spinach dip with pita and tortilla chips. We got a custom made pizza and the crust was ultra thin. Not a big selection... More

My friend and I were on our way to Traverse City and we decided to stop somewhere in Manistee. We chose TJ's and I am so happy we did! It was a Friday night, but we somehow managed to get a table right away. The drink menu looked great and I chose the Vandermill cider. Our drinks came back fast... More
