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.

Food is exceptional, I'd put the seafood quality up with the best in Dallas.
Service very personal, and it was easy to hold a conversation.

The food was very yummy❤️💜 The portion on the snapper was a little light but yummy nevertheless. The environment was a lovely family oriented quiet environment- almost like a quaint cafe 👍🏾

We keep coming back to TJs for their exceptional fresh seafood. In particular, we love the oyster selection and the outstanding shrimp cocktail. Service is friendly and professional. It's a wonderful addition to the neighborhood.

It was the perfect lunch spot. I loved the variety of the menu - you could order something heavier or keep it light, and both were amazing. Will go back.

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.
