Excellent, as always! These folks really know their fish!
Good, fresh food. We had salmon, blackened trout, and coconut-battered fish tacos, all cooked properly. One of our group could have no salt. She was graciously accommodated, and offered several delicious options.
Food was delicious. The shrimp cocktail and sweet petite oyster were delicious and fresh. Our trout and halibut was delicious. We had a great experience. Service was quick and easy. We will be dining again.
Dinner with our son who is moving to Kansas this month.
Best Halibut in Dallas! One of our favorite restaurants in Preston Hollow.
We have dinner at TJs often. Today we had lunch and we were disappointed. The service was marginal and the food was more expensive than we remembered. The cushions in our table/booth were dirty and there were no paper towels in the restroom. Not what we have come to expect.
Food is always exceptional!!!!! Great time!
I asked for extra capers and got NO capers on my $35 halibut and then my capers were delivered to wrong table and then server kept forgetting and no capers ever. So the halibut had no flavor... sheesh! How hard is it to scoop capers out of a jar and deliver them to the one of ten tables with diners?
The food was delicious as always. The place was packed so it was loud and the service was a little slow, no big deal. We know before we go it’s a little expensive but it’s worth it. Smoked salmon app every time!!
Great food & atmosphere
Great area seafood restaurant !
Always fantastic food! Casual atmosphere!
Atmosphere was amazing, wait staff was phenomenal and the food is the best in Dallas.
I will be back soon!
Wonderful hidden gem in Dallas for Seafood lovers. My son was reminiscing about our time in Key West and the fantastic seafood there so I thought this would be a good place to try and it did not disappoint. The service was top notch...personable without being intrusive, timely, and accurate. Great recommendations by our waiter and the ambiance was like being back in Key West. We had the shrimp cocktail to start and each had the lobster roll, which were both outstanding!! Seafood is usually pricey in general, but when you're nowhere near the coast it stands to reason that would be the case so be prepared for that. They do have excellent specials during the week if you are looking for value, otherwise go anytime. It was a great experience and we will definitely be returning!!
Overall I liked TJ's but I expected a little more. I came here for lunch and started with the famous ("best in Dallas") shrimp cocktail. The shrimp cocktail was good but I didn't feel as if there was anything special or exceptional about it. We ordered the mussels for one of our entrees and they were still a little sandy, something I did not expect from a highly rated seafood restaurant. Overall our entrees were pretty good. Portions and flavor pairings were done well but I expected a little more wow in flavor for the price point. The service and ambience of the restaurant was very nice.
TJ's is a weekly favorite for us. The food is fabulous, the service is great and we love the patio. It is quiet; conducive to great conversation over a good bottle of wine!
Food was great! Would definitely go again but the purchase fish is definitely expensive
Food overall great. Calamari small and side salad very small. Outside - many flies. Overall good though
First time we had a not so great experience. Out of crab cakes-I get not their fault-Covid-- Out of Peach Sangria??? Why?? Waitress would be walking off while I'm still ordering- making me ask her if she is sure of what we've ordered. I ordered the grill salmon to go -- she was again walking off when I asked her to make sure salmon was cooked well done-- Got home and very embarrassing to have my son hungry and have the smallest piece of grill salmon ever! It was not worth the price!! The size was 1/2 the size of a cell phone if smaller--Not worth the price at all! So not a good experience at all with waitress or food and lack of drinks.
Had a wonderful time with some outstanding food. Our waiter was extremely attentive and definitely nailed his recommendations. This is now our go to dinner spot. Do yourself a favor and order the focaccia bread and shrimp dip!!!
Food was amazing!!
The Sea Bass melted in your mouth like butter.
Shrimp cocktail “best in Dallas” was nothing to rave about.
Everything else we had was fantastic
Went to celebrate a birthday, and they took SUCH good care of us. Patio was well shaded and spaced out. Had the lobster roll & fish and chips - both were delicious. Can’t wait to come back!
I had a wonderful time and the food was amazing
This is a great place to eat both seafood and some landlubber food as well. The vodka martinis are good and the food is even better. They have some limited outdoor seating which is a benefit for those worried about Covid. The service is good and food is top notch. My wife and I really like it. It's nice to eat outside too, not just because of Covid but also being able to see the comings and goings of people in the Preston & Royal shopping center is also nice.
Overall, the experience was good. Food was okay. The service was great, and the ambiance was a bit busy for our taste. This might be great for those that enjoy northeastern-style seafood.
The best Miso Sea Bass I’ve had and the fish and chips were excellent as well. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The key lime cheesecake was a bit of a let down but the entrees were the star.
Great food and service. Could use better wine offerings and bit of expansion/variety in entrees and sides.
Excellent choices on the menu; delicious salmon and love the fish tacos!!
So so experience. Not too bad, but below expectations.
Always an excellent place
The food and atmosphere was wonderful. Had the grilled salmon and peach sangria
Our server, George was a true professional. Friendly and super efficient. We really enjoyed our lunch at T J’ s at Preston/ Royal.
Best seafood in DFW, and believe me because I have looked. It’s a 10 out of 10
We had a reservation for two. Excellent host check in experience and seating. Everything was excellent I just felt our waitress was not able to cover all her tables. She avoided eye contact when we were ready to order and seemed hurried and flustered. I had to flag her down to her our drink bar refills and to place our dinner order. It was Friday night and the place was hopping. It’s my second time there and the food is outstanding. I am wondering if Covid is the real reason for service seeming short.
Food always unbelievable. Service was great. We were there at 7 pm. Light coming in window at our table so a bit distracting.
Can be pricey depending upon what you order, but the food is always great, and the service is very good.
Great neighborhood spot. Come as you are! No dress code. Makes it easy for the family to run up for a special night with great food.
Everything was fantastic! Superb service & scrumptious food.
I’m a regular at TJ’s last night I tried the fish & chips which is usually good. For some reason, it was different than usual. I noticed the fish wasn’t as seasoned as I remember it to be. Overall the meal was good but I wont be ordering the fish & chips again!
