The Preston/Royal location has a much nicer ambience and is more comfortable. But Tj's always has the freshest seafood! Best shrimp cocktail in town.

Best part was the oysters. It's a fish market with some tables. Zero ambiance. I'd return to buy fresh fish to bring home, but not as a sit down experience.

Food was outstanding. Our waitress ( I believe it sounded like Dedonnisa)? was very attentive without breathing down our necks. She was great at offering input on the different entrees. We will be back for sure.

Great food. Great service. Specials were half priced wine and $2 oysters. We loved it. Not cheap tho even with the specials. Probably the best salmon I’ve ever had. Coconut rice was just a tad too sweet.

We were expecting something more upscale for the price. At the very least, a sitting area where we could wait while our table was being cleared would have been nice.
The fact that the server asked us to “hurry and order” since they were busy definitely threw us off.
Food was excellent but the space and service will keep us from coming back to this location.

I had the shrimp cocktail, calamari and tuna creole and blackened. . The shrimp was very fresh. The cocktail sauce average. I don't see how it is the best in Dallas. The calamari was light and fresh. I recommend the calamari. The tuna was disappointing. i found the blackened wasn't really blackened and the creole sauce, which tasted like Pace picante sauce, completely wiped out the taste of the tuna. All in all? The freshness of the seafood was amazing. The preparation and sauces lacked. For the price of over 50 bucks a person , you can do better and be just as satisfied at any number of other places.

Scallops were delicious but only had 3 on the plate. Hudson House which has a much nicer restaurant
offers 4 scallops for less money and the scallops are just as good.

TJ’s is unassuming and underrated. I don’t think you could get a better prepared, better tasting fish entree anywhere. My husband wanted to get another sea bass instead of dessert! So good!!!

By far the freshest of fresh seafood in Dallas. Weekly speaks on lobster, oysters and more. My go to is that coconut rice with wasabi dressing.

Entrees (sea bass and scallops) were quite good. The sides (fries, mixed vegetables, rice, coleslaw) were nothing to write home about. But, then, it's called TJ's Seafood, not TJ's Side Dishes.

The food is always good at TJ's. I usually go to the Preston/Royal location but since it is closed due to nearby tornado damage, I went to the Oak Lawn location. Great service and great food!

We enjoyed another great dinner at TJ's. I ordered the Fundy Salmon. Not only was it cooked to perfection, but the citrus glaze took it up another notch. My husband ordered the feature of the night, which was halibut. It, too, was cooked to order with a beautiful butter sauce. The sides, especially the asparagus and mashed potato, were great accompaniments to our meal. We enjoyed a lovely French Bordeaux wine that was well priced. Cynthia provided great service, too. Can't wait to go again!

Great place to unwind after work, or pick up a great tasting meal without any fuss or long waits. Fish and seafood is always VERY fresh and prepared in tasty, no nonsense dishes that you can eat every day! Can't wait to go back~

A great fish house in a convenient strip mall location. I've eaten here a few times and the fish is always ultra fresh and impeccably cooked. The menu features everything from a simple grill to savory fish tacos. I am partial to their gumbo but the soup of the day is always worth asking about. Oysters are succulent but expensive and they come with some of the best cocktail sauces in the city.

Enjoyed lunch AT TJs. This was our 3rd time there. The food is outstanding for lunch or dinner. The coccanut rice is terrific. The scallops were cooked perfectly.
