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.

Excellent seafood and service! The take away seafood looks wonderful as well. The server told me that every morning it is flown in so everything is extremely fresh. I will return to dine in and for take away. We brought our wild toddler, and they were very sweet and understanding with us.

Delicious seafood and excellent service. I had the rainbow trout and my wife had the fish tacos. We enjoyed the hush puppies made with charred corn and chilies as an appetizer.

Spectacular in every way. We had the 2 specials on Friday night, the halibut and lobster roll and they were both amazing. The chef was attentive and very informative, which made the evening that much better.

My husband and I had the BEST dinner at TJ’s! The manager was so kind and gave excellent recommendations on both food and wine, and even brought us a taste of a few of the wines we were debating between. He remembered me from when I called earlier in the day and had a taste of his favorite wine ready to go! It was incredibly thoughtful and made our experience even better. The food was to die for - we ordered the chowder and shrimp for apps (both incredible), I had the salmon burger for my entree which was absolutely delicious, and my husband had the fish and chips. Overall just an incredible dining experience and date night! We will absolutely be back and will bring friends/family with us next time! Highly recommend !!

This was my first time dining at TJ's, and I was very impressed. Usually when a woman enters a restaurant alone, she is shown to the worst table with the least experienced server who ignores her, anticipating the tip won't be worth the attention. Not so at TJ's! Scott made me feel welcome and made excellent recommendations. The rainbow trout with fresh green beans and fries made a refreshing lunch (flavorful and light), and I forgot my morning workout over the dense Brownie a la Mode (dense and dark with the hypnotic power of a single malt). As a local, how did I not discover this place before? I don't know, but I will definitely return with company. Thank you again, Scott!

The setting was like a nice cafe'. The food however was less than desirable. One of my guest's food was almost room temperature requiring reheating, my food was extremely bland, and not crispy due my food seating in the oils from it frying and not being used on something to remove access oils.

First time here and will definitely be back! The meal was amazing!! We did have to wait about half an hour even though we had a reservation. That was fine we ordered a glass of wine and waited.
The lobster roll was delicious, the bread was amazing and super buttery.
A must try, highly recommend.

Excellent fish, never overdone. Good hushpuppies. Really good caesar salad. They have added sautéed broccolini as a vegetable choice. Good truffle fries. The shrimp cocktail is big and excellent.
Fish chowder and gumbo not to my taste. Wine and beer selection is limited but what they have is good. Yummy fish tacos. They also are a fish market with fresh stuff and really good Ahi tuna. And oysters on the half shell that don't come from the gulf. And great eggs benedict with crab cake for lunch

I love trying new places and I know how much my kids love crab legs. So we went and I must say everyone loved their food. I got the salmon with mashed potatoes and Caesar salad.

Food was not remarkable. Overpriced for food that was just average. White wine served lukewarm. Really no ambience, we were sitting next to the freezer / refrigerated display. Food was brought out quickly.

Crab cakes, clam chowder, redfish, calamari, salmon, and fish tacos were excellent! The lobster bisque was just ok. No clumps of lobster. But it was good. Not exceptional. But good.

Service was awesome. I can’t remember our server’s name but she has a tattoo on her hand.

Prices were standard.
