So simple and so underrated. Many seafood options and fresh sides. Perfectly prepared as always. One of my favorite restaurants in Dallas.

We have bought fish from TJ’s previously, but this was our first time dining in. Excellent experience… everything we had (calamari, fish) was cooked perfectly. The Key Lime Cheesecake was great.

This TJ’s location (Oak Lawn) pales in comparison to the Royal Lane location. The menu is reduced and to add insult to injury the food is not on the same level. My food was not seasoned properly and the vegetables were under cooked. The location is also very small and the outdoor patio has no ambiance. The only saving grace was the service which was very good. Kudos to the manager for offering to comp my meal, which I declined. I simply wanted them to know that the food was not up to par. I was looking forward to this meal and did not goto the Royal Lane location which was excellent. In the future if you want to go to TJs go to the Royal Lane location. You will thank me for it.

The food, service, and ambience were all fantastic. The services provided by the professional management and staff are the main reasons that we keep coming back. The casual elegance is a rare thing, and we value their focus to make sure that everything about the dining experience is excellent. Best lobster roll that I have had outside of East Hampton. I highly recomend this restaurant.

Some of the food we had tonight was really good and some was poor. Rice as a side dish was more sweet than savory. The grilled tuna was cold and flavorless. The oysters and fish and chips were good. They were out of sea bass which was the whole reason this restaurant was selected for my wife’s birthday. Not sure why they ask if you are celebrating something there was no acknowledgement of it. Dress code states business casual however people were in shorts and flip flops. Very disappointed for the amount I spent.

Fresh and appetizing flavors throughout the menu from the hush puppies, to the chowder to the lettuce wrapped coconut fish tacos. We will be back for a weekend brunch at the Preston Royal location some weekend soon.

TJs seemingly never fails to impress. Fish (king salmon) was prepared perfectly. Squash is always perfectly done. Hush puppies are some of the best. Slaw is simply special. Mussels were delish and oysters were a taste of the sea. And service was impeccable - attentive but not intrusive.

A very intimate dining experience - maybe a dozen tables in the restaurant altogether. The menu is pretty simple as well - the house specialty is your choice of fish, grilled one of three ways, plus two sides. I had the snapper grilled with lemon butter, an off-menu choice on this night, while my wife had a shrimp po-boy. Her sandwich was huge and very tasty, and the old bay chips were thick and crispy. My fish was grilled perfectly, with just enough smokiness to complement the lemon-butter-caper sauce. The sides I chose were the broccolini, which was cooked with butter and garlic, and the chilled quinoa salad with cherry tomatoes and cucumber. Altogether a very refreshing meal.

Service was prompt and friendly and the restaurant comfortable despite the small size.

TJ’s is a great place for a casual, well-made intimate dinner.

First time at this location and we were so disappointed. The customer service was absolutely awful. Our waitress introduced herself to us multiple times, tried to take to order twice more (after we ordered), charged us the wrong amount, then when we stayed to correct the bill (our total was higher than what they charged us and we wanted to be honest) we had 2 staff members say they’ll check on the problem then never return. The food was amazing as ever so major kudos to the chef. But, now we won’t return to this location because of the poor service.

Great combo of fish market and restaurant. Small dining area but still pretty quiet. Great service, wine selection and food. We enjoyed the seafood chowder that had big chunks of recognizable seafood. Also had trout and fish tacos. All well prepared, served hot and timely. Very good mid ranged price seafood.
