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.
I called T.J. Maloney's in Merrillville Indiana to make a lunch reservation and was informed they were not accepted. I made an online lunch reservation through opentable.com, which was accepted. Upon our arrival for lunch, I was informed the restaurant forgot to close the opentable reservation area but would still honor the reservation. Brian, the Manager of T.J. Maloney's was very accommodating after we informed him of our online reservation. The service he provided to our group was outstanding. Brian took our order and provided top notch service. Thank you Brian for honoring our online reservation and the excellent service!!
This is a very good restaurant and bar for a convention style hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our waitress was very persistent in getting my drink right. The prices are very reasonable and they have entertainment later in the evening.
Was not happy to find you had taken the Rueben Roll ups off the menu. They were the best. I bought the Rueben sandwich, it was good but not as good.
We've eaten here 3-4 times and enjoyed it each time. The beer list is pretty good and often there are usually specials. We like to try the entrees with the British/Irish heritage. They are always ample portions that are tasty and well prepared. The restaurant is well staffed with friendly helpful people. Prices are reasonable. Try T. J. Maloney's and I think you will like it.
Specifically picked this restaurant to celebrate my daughter and her fiance's birthdays. I had forgotten about the time change (eastern to central), so we actually arrived an hour early. It was no problem, staff was gracious enough to get us seated right away! We were seated relatively close to a rather loud group of people, but as that group and ourselves were the only ones in the restaurant portion, it was somewhat tolerable. As more people arrived, group got quieter. The food: Outstanding. My wife's steak was not cooked to her order, our waitress said no problem and took care of it. The waitress, the gentleman who brought our food, and the manager all came over and apologized for the steak. We left very impressed!!
Ashley was our server and was PHENOMENAL... She met all our needs (including the band's: The Difference) and never had to flag her down to ask for anything!!! On top of it the poor kid wasn't feeling well but never let anyone know!!!! Hope to get Ashley again when we come back =)
I thought that the restaurant would be a little upscale since it is a part of the Star Plaza. It felt cheap and cheesy to me. I didn't like the tables and chairs, there were mixed match chairs at my table and my table had scratches. I ordered fish and chips and the cod was rubbery and chewy. I won't go back again.
The bangers were some of the best I've had. The Guinness was on tap
Loud & attractive bar scene. Mac & Cheese with braised tips was very good but service was painfully slow.
the service was horrible, the waiter said he forgot to bring us bread, then he put his hand all over the olive for the martini and sat them in the same plate as the bread. The bartender was snezzing all over the drinks as she made them. The steaks were hard, dry and tufffff. We will never eat at this horrible place again. It was our wedding anniversary and we were in town to see the Mike Epps Show.
