TJ's is a great spot to grab dinner or drinks. The atmosphere in the old building is cozy and comfortable with a warm fireplace and good service. The food is predictably good, and the prices are fair. The bar has a good selection of beer...More

Food here is good and reasonably priced, particularly the Saturday night prime rib special. Beer is cold. All of this may explain why this cramped restaurant space was packed on a Saturday evening. There is music of a sort, but not the type that will...More

TJ’s was an unexpected pleasure. Our party of 6 recently enjoyed lunch there. The food was excellent, the service nice, and the the atmosphere was quiet and pleasant. Definitely worth stopping there.

Recently we visited TJs Pub for lunch. They have what I would consider more "yuppie" sandwiches and soups. The food is very good, the rating would be 5 if the prices were not above my budget. Probably typical prices for the "gourmet" food.

This tiny place (a dozen tables?) was one we were willing to wait for, but they were able to seat us at a table in the very back right away on a busy weekend night during the dinner rush. We felt lucky! The drink specials...More

Unsure. The food was too good for me to worry about wifi! BTW, this year;s trip through Manistee found an amazing Saturday night prime rib special at TJs. The best!
