Diner Reviews
  • "My fiance and I decided to stay at the radisson for the weekend for his early birthday celebration and made reservations at TJ Maloneys with his family. To start off the night - they wouldn't let me bring a birthday cake that I paid for. Half the drinks his mom ordered, they didn't have... my fiance ordered a drink and it was made incorrectly, his dad ordered a regular coke and received diet, once the waiter took our order and brought our appetizer (which was really good) we never saw him again until our actual food came out and by then everyone needed refills and my fiance had to get a glass of water from the bar for me because I have a stomach condition and I was in immense pain waiting for our waiter to ask him for water. Wont be back."

  • "The grilled chicken sandwich and the burger we had came on very dry crumbly buns... not very good! Also, the chicken breast was tiny! We waited for another couple to join and our server said he would stop back as soon as he saw them sit down.... he walked by 3 times that I counted without even acknowledging our whole party was there. I understand being busy, but at least say I will be right with you or something..... so we feel less ignored."

  • "We had a large group of 8 and it was a very smooth and enjoyable dining experience! Our food was prompt, hot, and delicious! We were there at lunch time and had a meeting afterwards and had plenty of time to eat and enjoy eachothers company and still make it to the meeting in time. Thank you for a wonderful experience!"

  • "Our group of 5 enjoyed our time together! The seating was a little uncomfortable because it was cramped quarters. The waiter was fun & took good care of us. The seating and the bread pudding were the only downside all evening. It was pretty great!"

  • "My boyfriend and I chose T.J. Mahloney's so our parents could meet each other. Merrillville was a great halfway point. The restaurant had a reputable website and seemed promising. Both of our nerves were on end, this was a big moment in our lives. I wasn't very pleased when I had reserved a table 5 days ahead and the table wasn't ready. Also, the staff was very unprofessional with their attitudes as well as their attire. Most were wearing yoga pants and the staff had inside jokes that were not appreciated."

  • "Great beer selection to start with and then a very nice meal. We really enjoyed the band, Of Eld. They were a sort of Celtic band with a very interesting song list. We're looking forward to seeing them again and having a great time at T.J. O'Malley's."

  • "The food was good. All in our party were satisfied. The king portion of the fish and chips was only two pieces of fish and about 3 pounds of fries for almost $19!!!"

  • "TJ' s is about what you would expect for a pub. I will say the food was less than average. Apparently salt is used as a main ingredient in the food rather than a spice. We had the Salmon appetizer and it was doused in salt. The waitress did give us a credit for that item, however even the entrée was heavily salted. Maybe the cook/chef had a bad day who knows. Also if you go stick to beer or possibly wine. The mixed drinks they serve are extremely, extremely weak. As far as a recommendation, if your looking for an Irish pub atmosphere and all that entails this place may be for you."

  • "Although our food was great and service was excellent, the cocktails ordered from the bar were not. I have no problem paying for drinks if there are actually alcohol in them. We were a large group celebrating my birthday and most of us were drinking and felt the same about the weak watered down drinks. Its too expensive to not get quality service. Very disappointed."
