We booked this as a last visit since the restaurant was going to close soon. It was convenient for the adjoining theater. The menu was limited but the food we ordered was very good.
Generally top notch, this restaurant had a bad day, or maybe just a bad entree. Side dishes, soup, bread -- all wonderful. Still very sad that it will be closing in a couple of months due to renovation.
Our waitress was phenomenal and made our visit fun and enjoyable. Her food recommendations were very helpful.
Really too dark in the back dining area, it's needs more lighting.
Food was good but service was slow. We were with a large group for a conference and found out after dining at TJ Maloneys that we could have received 20% off. Disappointing!
We had the poutine as an and the loved it. Shepard pie, 3pig grilled cheese, and potatoe soup were delicious.
I live in the Merrillville area, but I had never visited TJ Maloney's. My wife and I will definitely become regulars now. The food was great, the service was amazing and we had lots of fun.
Fast food. Loud music. Had to be in the spirit of the bar scene to enjoy.
Fun place at night. Quite quiet for lunch
We had a reservation (made online) and tried to call to say we would be a few minutes late but no one ever answered the phone. We were seated immediately upon arrival but it was a good 10 minutes before the waitress actually came to the table. The hostess did not offer water or a menu and merely returned to her station less than 20 feet away. The waitress was very pleasant and attentive until we were finished with the meal and had to wait to get our check. This was frustrating since we were trying to make a show at the theatre on site. The menu has changed over the years with very few authentic Irish dishes. We chose this restaurant because it was connected to the theatre and were pressed for time, but we probably should have gone to one of the many other surrounding restaurants that offer a better food selection and better service.
