I have been to TJ several time. All other time, foods, drinks and services were pretty on point. However, on this visit, the burger I ordered with "no pink" was over cooked and dry, the grill salmon also off. Service was also so so. Perhaps, it was Black Friday effect.

I'll still go back here to see if the experience would be better next time. Hopefully, it would be.

Excellent food, best crab cake I’ve ever had. My husband and son had the trout; they said it was very good.

I had the New Zealand S. Blanc very good, my husband had ? beer and my son had ? red wine. All very good. Only surpassed by the chocolate ? a la mode dessert-really, to die for. Yum yum.

Nice atmosphere, A+ for being able to carry on a conversation, no loud music, people respectful of those around them.

It is pretty pricey.

We’ll be returning.

Party of 5. Staff was wonderful. FOOD not so much. Calamari was cold and soggy. You couldn’t tell the calamari from the banana peppers. Two orders of overly batter battered fish and greasy half warm chips. One order of Tacos barely warm. The other two dishes and the desserts were delicious.
Hope this was a one off night for the kitchen.

My husband and I visited TJ's Seafood Market and Grill on Royal last night for dinner. As always, the food was delicious and the service impeccable. We shared a lobster roll and fries. I also had the New England chowder and my husband had the gumbo. Our cocktails (Valencia gin and tonic and Old Fashioned) were also very good. Overall, I would definitely recommend TJ's.

We love TJs’s - the atmosphere is relaxed, the food is great, and they have a market if you want to take your fish home and prepare it yourself!

We have enjoyed dozens of meals at TJ's thru the last few years....and tried almost every seafood offering and special. The quality of food, service, and friendly casual atmosphere is always spot on. Last night we decided to branch out and try something new.....
I can now HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Yacht Club Burger!!!! It was flavorful, cooked to our individual preferences, and served with thin, crispy, in-house made potato chips.

From the moment we stepped into the door, the service was incredible. The quality and freshness of the seafood were incredible. We started with the mussels - the curry that the mussels were in was so delicious! The main courses were prepared with care. Save room for dessert! The molten chocolate cake was baked perfectly. I will definitely be back!

Enjoyed an excellent, early evening dinner at TJ's. Catch of the Day was delicious, very well prepared salmon and yummy Brussels sprouts. We also enjoyed the salad tremendously and the wasabi vinaigrette was amazing! The service by LC and the rest of the staff was great. Great cocktail menu and wonderful ambience.

Ver cool restaurant as far as ambiance, food was pretty good. Brussels sprouts very unique and flavorful also clam chowder was top notch.
However, staff was horrible especially Tamra the waitress, very dry, not welcoming, no greeting as I came in..She was like that with everyone that came in for lunch I noticed. The only pleasant staffer was the bartender, she was the only personable, welcoming staffer. Unfortunately I probably won’t go back..

Had a wonderful brunch experience at TJ’s. We liked the outdoor seating, although it is part of the walkway for the shopping center - this wasn’t an issue for us. We started with the avocado toast trio, which was phenomenal. My friend had the catch of the day (halibut) with eggs and I had a smoked salmon frittata. Both dishes were flavorful and satisfying. We each had a brunch cocktail and found them delightful. Our server was kind and attentive. We will definitely be dining at TJ’s again!

Menu shock leading to disappointment.

I scheduled a reservation for this restaurant after reviewing the OpenTable menu and seeing 4oz and 8oz Lobster Tail and King Crab Leg menu selections. This was a surprise dinner choice for my wife's birthday because she loves lobster tails and we have not been to this restaurant before.

To our own surprise the 4oz and 8oz Lobster Tail and King Crab Leg OpenTable menu selections were not on the paper menu provided to us at the restaurant after being seated. I asked the server do they have lobster and crab legs. The server responded saying they do not have those items. I then showed the server the OpenTable menu where these items are displayed. Our server then stated that "We only have what is on the paper menu we provided".

My wife and I kindly got up and left the restaurant.

If you are looking for lobster and crab choices any day of the week at this restaurant, based on the current OpenTable menu, you'll be disappointed as we were. I attached the menu given to us to this review.

Best shrimp Tacos we've ever had. Our server was cheerful; and made sure everything was perfect. There was one food misstep but the server and then the manager came over to see that everything was to our satisfaction.
I would highly recommend TJs.

Over priced and no flavor. We wanted this to be a great place to meet family having recently moved to the area. The location is perfect. Food was void of flavor. We should have known something was amiss because no one was in the dining room at 1:00 on a Sunday.
Staff was very good.
Sorry guys…

In my opinion... the gumbo was terrible! Next time I'm in the mood for gumbo I'll go to a Cajun restaurant. My husband enjoyed his entree.
The host & our waiter were excellent.

TJ’s was outstanding! This was our first time dining here. We used to buy all our fresh seafood at their tiny fish market back when they were at Preston Forest. What a wonderful surprise that the restaurant is a five star dining experience. Everything was fresh, creative, beautifully presented & attentive service. Wish I had taken photos of the gorgeous harvest salad & the coconut curry mussels.

Usually TJ's on Royal is great, but this time we were disappointed in the food. I had the chef's fish special and it was dry and over seasoned. My son had fish and chips and said they were tasteless and disappointing. My husband was happy with his fish tacos. We also ordered a shared mac and cheese with scallions. It arrived in an attractive iron skillet - but it was barely warm and had a few scallions scattered on top. Service was good and drinks were fine. We are looking forward to Fish City reopening.
