We visited TJ's on a Friday, planning to get a fish fry, but we both went with the rotisserie chicken when we saw it on the menu. The chicken was moist but had not been seasoned or marinated and the skin was not crispy, having been covered with gravy. It was served with "smashed" style potatoes which tasted good, but were kind of dry. The view of Lake Winnebago was great, they have some second story balcony seating with large windows They have some outside seating on the balcony and a patio that looks nice for warmer weather. It is a modern place with a nice bar, our drinks were good and served in mason jars. We will probably stop back in warmer weather and try the lunch menu when we can eat outside. The parking lot is not paved and was muddy due to melting snow, so don't wear your good shoes.

This place was recommended by a friend who lives a short distance away on the lake. Warning! IF you try their Harbor Nachos, made with their awesome pulled rotisserie chicken you will be back much sooner than you imagined! Seriously, who knew nachos could be so wonderful?

The main entrees are delicious! The burgers, salads, sandwiches are just as delicious... BUT, if you are one the people who like the Wisconsin traditional Friday night fish fry... this is the place to be. The Perch dinner is outstanding! And, you have the option between a smaller or larger serving.

This place is not just about wonderful food, the people who work there genuinely seem to enjoy their work, and make being there, just plain fun. A smile finds it's way to your face when you walk through the door, and is still there when you leave.

If the restaurant is super busy and you want to eat a little sooner, try placing your dinner order at the bar rather than waiting for a table.

Whatever you do, do NOT leave! While you wait, have one of their very delicious drinks, or chose from their very nice selection of specialty beers. I like the mixed drinks, my husband loves the different beers.

I do not know if they have late night, or brunch, we have never gone there for anything other than dinner.

We have never had a bad meal at T.J.s. Fresh & well repaired - good selection but not an extensive menu.

This brand new restaurant is like a breath of fresh air. The menu choices are versatile and not run of the mill. The food preparation and presentation are exquisite. One can dine al fresco in the summer months. A true diamond in the rough. It is our #1 dining destination since it opened in July 2012.
