“Great way to start the day”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

We enjoyed breakfast at TJ's as part of a special stay at the Jefferson Hotel. The menu is large with local specialties. Both of our meals were excellent and service was just right. A little pricey, but worth it.

“Great causal lunch place”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

TJ's has always been a nice place, but food quality has clearly moved up several notches, yet prices remain modest. Their corn and shallot soup is to die for!

TJs is "clubby" looking restaurant on the lower level of the Jefferson Hotel with a lovely setting. We have eaten there for a dinner that was average, a few months later for breakfast which was fabulous, and yesterday for lunch. Our party of four tried different things. I had a sandwich described as grilled chicken, avocado, Havarti, tomato and fried tobacco onions on a Kaiser roll. It should have been flavorful but it was fiery hot from chili flake on the chicken and the avocado, a guacamole type spread rather than a slice, was also hot in flavor. The heat drowned out everything else so it was a disappointment. Friends had the breaded fried pork chop sandwich with a fried egg and red cabbage sauerkraut. The chop was get dry and overcooked. Service Wake Forest cordial and attentive. So 3 trials but only one food experience i would rate as good versus average to disappointing. Food 2, ambiance and service 5.

“Shrimp and Grits”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We were staying at the hotel and wanted to grab a bite to eat. I was interested in the Shrimp and Grits but they are only for breakfast. I inquired if it would be possible to get them for dinner, and they said of course! They were yummy. My sister had the Red Snapper for her meal, and devoured it. We were getting brunch the next day and our waiter took the time to find out where we would be sitting, and giving a little description of it. Everyone at the restaurant was kind, and very friendly.

“Very good hotel restaurant”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

We had breakfast here on our day of departure. Ambiance is what you would expect but the food was above average. The Eggs Benedict had a local flare with pulled pork instead of taylor ham and it was outstanding. The wife's meal came out wrong and they could a bit longer to bring out the correct one than you would have expected but they were very gracious and comp'd us the meal.
