Not up to its usual standards. Service was split between 2 servers which led to a few errors. Food was good but the ‘special’ was finished by 6.45.

T.J. Stone is a great place especially on Mondays, 1/2 price burgers!!! Since last Monday was a holiday, I stopped by earlier than 5 pm. and find out that they did not have the burger menu yet and also it was full price. May be they can consider having burger menu and 1/2 price burgers all day??? Thanks!

I have family in town and wanted to take them away from home but to feel like we never left. T.J. Stones had the fire going in the dining room and a very quiet atmosphere. Such care was taken by their team to make sure we were well looked after complimented by amazing food. My parents are picky eaters so watching them thoroughly enjoy their food and laugh and have a great time was so great.

Loved everything about it and will definitely make T.J. Stones a regular stop.

Food was good and no complaints. We had brisket, burgers, and chicken. Only thing we didn’t care for was brie appetizer. It wasn’t melted or warm and presentation wasn’t appealing.

The Thanksgiving meal was mediocre. The turkey meal was ok but nothing special and the prime rib was hard to cut and chew. It was quite busy but the service was good and they comped the prime rib meal.

We have been to TJ many times and we love to sit in a booth since it's quieter. The salmon was done to perfection as was the steak. The service was excellent. We'll be back.

This was our first visit to TJ Stones. Overall, it was a disappointment. There are essentially two places side-by-side. One half is a pub/sports bar and the other half is a restaurant. I think we would go back there for drinks and to watch sports, but the restaurant side needs work. Our server was very nice and she tried, however she seemed pretty stressed and even spilled an entire glass of champagne on our table. We both ordered salads and they were just OK. My wife's steak was pretty tasteless and my Harvest Salad wasn't much better. It seems like the restaurant part is something of an afterthought.

Service was great and attentive.
Food - we went for RW and we each tried a different entrée. The kabobs which I had were great. The rib and pork combo was also good. Our friends had the fish which I did not taste but they said was try. The sides were not notable. The chocolate lava cake though was awesome. As well we had wings as a appetizer which were very good. I'd probably come back more as a casual place to eat, not quite the "food" experience I thought it might be, but very good all around.
The place was busy, had a nice outdoor seating area, and there is a bar side and a food side of the restaurant so it's good for meeting up and getting a drink or sitting down for a meal/date.

Excellent all around place if you’re looking for a solid meal with great portions and lots of flavor. I noticed there was a bar side that seems to be able to handle an NFL crowd with ease. I’ll be back! 💯

Loved the look and feel of the inside. The sayings on the wall, to the wall art to the flooring all went with the decor of the restaurant. Our waiter was great, he was very attentive and friendly. The food was.... ok. Neither of us were a fan of cheddar cheese on the French onion soup, does not taste good together. The Bourbon sauce on the wings left a lot to be desired, I stopped after 2. My salad was good, but I wouldn't recommend the tomato or champagne vinaigrette, they didn't taste very good. My husband did like his steak frites. Overall we would go back though.

This is a great find. There is a bar section and a grill area. Service was great and food was very good. Cute place off the beaten track so it was not super busy in the grill but the bar area was packed. Really liked this place 👍
