Visited on a Sunday for early lunch. Restaurant was fairly quiet. Ordered Pulled Pork Entree with their fries and cole slaw. Service was great but food was average all around. Pulled pork was a little greasy along with their corn muffins that cost an extra $4 for two. Doubt I will return to eat. Seems like they could be very... More

I stopped here for a snack and drinks. No line, was seated right away. Danny the bartender was very attentive and informative of the menu. The appetizer bacon wrapped meatballs were very good. The briscut cuban was great. A little too much smoke favor but it was still delicious. He also had my fav, pickle shots. Great snacks and great... More

The service was OK but the food was not, fries was burned, my wife ordered "pork B B Que" it had no flavor and was like boiled, she can't eat it, my hamburger was no that I expect, bread no toasted...

Great food, affordable drinks, clean, enjoyable atmosphere..... They've got it all. I'll be back! The music wasn't so loud you couldn't talk, but you can hear it anywhere on the giant patio.

We ordered a pretzel appetizer with beer/cheese dip. The pretzels were barely edible and the dip was awful. Server was nice but will never eat there again.

The ribs were the best… We had the mixed plate and barbecue pork sandwich… My ribs one the taste test! Good selection of beers and other cocktails… Fun music fun atmosphere… I'd go again!

We had stopped in TJ's for dinner. We actually ended up leaving after one beer since one of the guys that we were with walked into the men's room and it was so bad we knew we didn't want to eat anything there... If you judge any place by their bathroom... this is one to stay away from

We both looked at each other and said "your kidding". Chicken was so smothered in sauce,hard to taste the meat.the smallest cup of Cole slaw I've ever... More

We were going to go to the Boardwalk but when we got there, it looked like a fast-food restaurant for seafood which wasn't what we were expecting. So, we left in search of something else and we found TJ's Smokehouse. It was so hard to choose one thing on the menu and then we saw the desserts! We chokse to... More
