Food always unbelievable. Service was great. We were there at 7 pm. Light coming in window at our table so a bit distracting.

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.

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!

I came from okc to experience the crab cakes unfortunately you guys we're out. After the waiter informed me that they ran out he also were telling me about other options but when he was explaining the options giving me the price and it made me feel some type of way and not a good way

Alder smoked salmon was delicious. Fried cod was disappointingly uncrisp. Unusual because we have had it before. Service was very attentive.

The service was very slow. We waited for our main course for approximately an hour. In our past experiences at this restaurant, service was much faster. Management did acknowledge the long wait time and did provide a free key lime cheesecake.

Noise level made it difficult to hear conversation without shouting, and even then you couldn't hear some things.
The food was very good and will keep us coming back, but maybe more often for take out.

When you pay $38 for a lobster tool you would not expect it to be very tough and chewy.
