“Great local food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

TJ's offers great casual seafood fare and fun monthly events with live music. From fish tacos, shrimp po boys and shrimp and grits it's all good food. When they have the monthly low country boil the atmosphere is pure fun.

“Best Poboy Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

Went to T.J.'s on the evening of the worst day of our Orlando vacation. We could tell that things were looking up as soon as we entered and were greeted by the wonderful people working there! T.J.'s was just what we needed. Grand-children 2 and 5 years old, loved the kids menu. My husband thought that the Tuna sandwich was great. Myself, I swear I had the BEST Shrimp Poboy EVER! Son and daughter-in-law raved about the crab cakes and fish entrees. In addition, we had several appetizers, including the Mahi Dip. LOVE this stuff. What a great, casual place to kick back, relax and have some of the best seafood in the area at unbelievable prices. Thanks to everyone at T.J.'s for turning our day around!

“You'll be happy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

TJ's is our go-to favorite for lunch at least once/week. We found it shortly after it opened, and the food was great. A really good, casual seafood restaurant was sure to catch on fast and it did. The owners and staff go the extra mile to make every guest feel welcome. Reminiscent of the old neighborhood bar, everyone goes, from infants in carriers to great-grandparents. Great fun, great people and great food at reasonable prices ... TJ's is simply great.
