The fish tacos were delicious - I highly recommend the coconut fried shrimp variety. It was a bit cold with frequent gusts of air coming in, as we were seated right next to the entrance, but besides that it was a wonderful experience. Will definitely return!

Absolutely a neighborhood gem for seafood lovers. Fish is always grilled perfectly and the side dishes are delicious too. Attentive service. Small wine list but excellent choices. I eat here frequently and am always delighted.

The food at TJ’s always so fresh and deliciously prepared. The lemon butter Chilean Sea Bass is pricey, but oh so worth it. Pair it with Pinot Grigio, Truffle Fries, and Broccolini, and you have one of the best meals Dallas has to offer.

What a wonderful surprise! I can’t say enough about the food or service. My husband and I were visiting from out of town and lucky enough to get last minute reservations. Two dozen oysters, shrimp cocktail, shishito
Peppers, soup, and a salmon plate later- we left with full tummies and happy hearts. Thank you!

Great ambiance and very attentive service. Oysters on the half shell recommended, as are the mussels. Also kudos on the caesar salad - perfect ratio of dressing to greens and a nice hint of anchovie.

Each of our party had different entrees and everyone loved their choice. I had a new item on the menu - Chilean Sea Bass Enchaladas and it was delicious - fish well cooked and seasoned with a nice hit of heat.

A quiet Monday date-night; first-time visit for both my wife and myself. Small and intimate dining room, fast and efficient service, and spectacular food. Crab cakes, scallops, and coconut rice were stand-outs, but I doubt if you can go wrong with any choice.

The restaurant was quiet to engage in conversation; the timely delivery of our appetizer was great, as was the delivery of our entrees and cocktails. The server was attentive without being overbearing and overall the evening couldn’t have gone any better.

This was my wife's birthday and all she wanted was seafood for a day. We had dined at Eddie V's, Nick & Sam's etc but wanted someone who is known for Seafood. Our family group of 7 was welcomed into this quiet fish market / restaurant with the warmest greeting. It was a Sunday afternoon and we had the place to ourselves. Our server Rachel, with only 6 months on the job was superb. she was personable and truly focused on providing great service. Back up by the manager Jennifer who lead a helping hand will mentoring to Rachel. The food was great as my grandsons had never been in a Seafood market like this. Enrique , the chief, simply out did himself as I now have 2 grandsons and , two sons with a whole different perspective on great seafood. My wife had a great evening surrounding by family made only better by the quality of service we received and fresh cooked seafood that was delicious. Highly recommend for date night of early family dinning.
