Great place for seafoods, I took my kid and his cousins for seafood dinner and they loved it. The services was abit odd, I asked for sparkling rose and he said they don’t has it but I pointed to the menu therefore I got it. I ordered 1/2 dozen oysters but I got a dozen. I ordered desserts (which are sooo good, it was all gone before I got a chance to taste it) and it came out before the main course…I had to ask to take it back til dinner is done. Glad that the foods and the place is great and the kids had a great time so it over shadowed the services (he wasn’t that bad but he was somewhere else I guess that night). Will come back to try other dishes when I’m back to Dallas for sure.

This restaurant is generally very good with quality food and solid service. This is the second time in a row that we have made a reservation and had to wait 15-30 minutes. Just be aware of that to minimize frustration. While they always apologize, management probably needs to space out their reservation slots a bit.

The overall experience was quite good. The grilled halibut was nicely cooked and the mashed potatoes very good. Not sure what they did to the potatoes; my wife says "butter." My wife's crab cake was excellent and the appetizer fried calamari was enhanced by the sliced pepper and excellent sauces. It was a bit noisy. Staff wore masks. It would be n ice to know if they were all vaccinated since everyone there as guests were unmasked and it was crowded. Definitely will return. Recommend reservations on Friday eveniong.

Lobster in the lobster roll was super chewy, rubbery and tough. Halibut was bland and a very small portion for the price. Service was just okay. Nothing wowed us.

When we get our favorite waiter, the service is impeccable, otherwise, good.
It's noisy when crowed.
Food is exceptional.
Manager is exceptional and makes you feel appreciated and he is very involved.

My wife and I are a big fan of the lobster roll. We've been about 3-4 times and decided to come by for a quiet weekday anniversary dinner. Switching these up this time, we both opted for something different and I will have to say that I will always being getting a smoke salmon side salad with anything I order there the next time we're in. It's been a few days and I'm still thinking about it when I'm hungry.

We’re pretty picky about seafood and our experience was amazing. I had the miso sea bass and he had the salmon. We also started with the shrimp cocktail. Delish.

After a bad experience on Mother’s Day, I have decided to give one more chance to this restaurant on a Wednesday for dinner.
The Lobster roll was the worst I’ve ever tasted. A glass of wine plus the Lobster Roll was overpriced on $53. The noise level was the highest and service was ok but slow. Definitely this is not a restaurant for me.

Consistently great seafood. Somewhat broader and evolving menu entree's and sides would be welcomed. Seasonal offerings such as halibut and softshell crabs are excellent.

We enjoyed the shrimp cocktail and farmers market green salad to start. The wasabi vinaigrette on the greens opens your sinuses and so does the cocktail sauce that accompanies the shrimp. The crab cakes served with slaw were delicious. The blackened trout with buttery smooth mashed potatoes and green beans is a never-fail. Ate every bite. We sat in a small booth in the comfortable bar area and enjoyed ESPN. It was a nice evening with yummy food.

When our reservation was made there was no information that the menu was exclusively selected for Mother’s Day.
And, the price was set. We decided to stay and spend WAY more than expected, anticipating a great meal.
The salad-flavorless. The salmon entree-dry and unappetizing. It was the most expensive bad meal we have ever had.

Mother’s Day Brunch. My wife ordered Salmon Sweet Potato Hash. So little Salmon- she had to hunt for it and thought at first it was left out. Waiter observed she hardly ate any- she felt it wasn’t tasteful. Asking if she wished to take it home, when informed “no” didn’t care or ask if she was dissatisfied. This was the main course of a $65 brunch. Outrageous price for what she received. My meal was acceptable and quantity fair for the price. Desserts ( included) appeared to have been frozen and maybe not fully thawed when served. We are usually extremely pleased with TJ’s. This was a disappointment .
