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.

Fish entrees were cooked perfectly. Sides were really good. Slightly smaller selection of oysters, but they were all very fresh and delicious.

Fresh and great seafood. Oysters, shrimp,, and trout perfect. Gumbo terrific flavor, but almost no fish! Mostly andouille.

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.

Wonderful lunch! The smoked salmon appetizer plate is perfect for lunch. Beautifully presented and delicious. Every item is absolutely fresh. I've dined here for both lunch and dinner and have been delighted every time.

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.

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.

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 !!
