“Great Barbecue & Steak & Novel Desserts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2011

This new “Grill House &Tap Room” located on the northern edge of Old Town, based upon our limited samplings, serves great, meaty ribs, well prepared steaks and novel (as well as normal) desserts. It also seems to pride itself on “celebrating American cuisine with libations from around the world”(it’s written in big letters on a wall and on business cards) but we did not test that. The staff was friendly, helpful and competent. The ambiance was friendly and comfortable.

“Disappointed with changes”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2011

TJ Stone's was great when it opened. Agree with all the other reviews here. Problem is, over the summer, they somehow chintzed back on happy hour bar food. No great buys remain -- at all. We sampled several items on Sept 2 and felt ripped off, as did the couple sitting next to us, who were also surprised at the changes. I stress: we sat at the bar and did not dine in the restaurant. We found: no real happy hour prices on beer and wine. Changes to the happy hour snack food has made them a lousy buy. Plus, it wasn't crowded and the kitchen service was very slow and the bartenders inattentive. Some of the favorites foods are no longer available -- tacos, and tho I don't eat it, my companions wanted some of their great bbq. Since TJ's is located in a real outpost -- no sexy, hot location, they need to be careful to offer something special to bring people here in coming months. Hate to say it, but there are much, much better deals for great, cheap happy hour drinks and food in overly-yupped-up Clarendon than poor TJ Stone's seems able to offer. Too bad! Possibly the hotel crowd will continue to flow in to keep up business.

“WOW Great Barbecue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2011

I had read the reviews and didn't know what to expect. REALLY glad we came. Terrific Caesar salad, wonderful pulled pork sandwich and rotisserie chicken. Tasty cole slaw and probably the best restaurant baked beans I've ever had.
Topped it off with a divine blackberry cobbler.
We'll be back for the ribs!
Lively bar scene, but the restaurant is quieter. Loved it.

“Cool place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2011

This was a prettt cool place with a great beer selection. The atmosphere was similar to a Bonefish. They serve you popcorn instead of bread, and it comes flavored. Ours was hot chocolate! My mom ordered a sandwich that was supposed to come on a brioche bun, but instead it came on a hamburger bun. My rotisserie chicken was really bland. It's with a try though.
