The service is always excellent and we consider this the best seafood in Dallas. It’s always fresh and well prepared.

My very first impression was not good. We had an open table reservation, showed up right on time, so one was waiting to be seated but the restaurant was very full. I was asked if we had a reservation, yes, and my response was well we have tables outside. Hmm, it's summer in Dallas, 97 degrees - no thanks, how long is the wait for in inside table? Oh, we have one , we'll seat you right now. Really? Why did I have to ask for an inside table? I found their craft coctails interesting, and enjoyed one, their wine list was good. Our server was excellent. Starters, gumbo ++ shrimp coctail, sauce too spicy, and dressing on mixed greens burned the esophagus. Main dish, crabcakes and fish tacos ++. Especially the crabcakes, solely lump crabmeat - excellent. Would go back to try some other tasty sounding dishes. Very noisy, tables less than a foot apart.

I was unsure about whether I would like this place. Being from Rhode Island, I tend to be dismissive of Texas restaurants claiming to serve fresh seafood. I must say, TJ's was a pleasant surprise. The food was excellent, and my wife and I both agreed that we need to go back to try other items on the menu.

Excellent Seafood, Fresh and tasty. The lobster roll very good but pricey at $36.00
Our only complaint was the noise level was way over the top...

We are and continue to be a fan of TJ's. The fish is fabulous, as you would expect, and so are the truffle fries - a perennial favorite. The style is casual but the food and service is top notch.

Although they did alter the lobster roll as per my husbands request , my salad did not have two items on it that were listed in the menu!
TJs was not bad by any means but it won’t be my first choice when we are back in Dallas!

Excellent seafood. The best in Dallas, I'm pretty sure. Elegant presentations that delivered on flavor. I hadn't been for years, and the restaurant is much larger now. My son-in-law recommended it after reading about the owner's obsession with only the best, sustainable fish. Rather brilliant of him, I think! Our server was excellent: pleasant, knowledgeable and efficient. The ambiance is bright and clean. We'll go back for sure! Thank you!

Champagne needed to be colder.
Frittata was too hot and could hardly eat it.
The booth was too small for a four course meal for two.
Didn’t like the last course choices.
The best item was the oysters on the half shell.

This place is always reliable for a really good meal. This visit, they had a new chef/cook, so the food was very slow in coming. Good when it arrived, but took way too long. Lots of folks complaining. Once they work out the kinks, should be back to where they’ve always been.

Nice local place for us. Seafood is featured as advertised. Food was very good, service was superb. A little pricey but that's to be expected based on what is featured. I'd recommended for anyone looking for quality seafood in a local place.

The seafood was not all that. Thought it was way too pricey for what you got at a brunch. Should have had better deals. The shrimp was over cooked. The salmon was almost over cooked. For an appetizer of a few shrimp and some arugula it was $16.00
Bloody Mary was $14.00. We will not be back.

A weekday night out as the halibut season begins. Preparation was simple and excellent. Other recent entrée and side changes are further improvements. Always solid raw oyster offerings. Wine list is very short, but can typically find 2-3 good choices on both red and white lists. Still working on their dessert menu. Simply the best seafood in Dallas for some time now. Have been here many times and have never been disappointed. About how many places in Dallas can one say that?

Lets start with, food was good. Well presented. Would strongly recommend an improvement in seating comfort. Cushions on bench seats offered no comfort. Caused us to leave early and with wine on the table. One person zipped by to ask how our meal was. Felt like an obligation rather than a genuine question.

My husband and I heard about this gem of a restaurant through Open Table and decided to give it a try. Well...let’s just say we have been there twice in a week. The food was amazing, service superb and atmosphere quite friendly. The Smoked Salmon Board was phenomenal (both times) and both versions of the Lobster Roll were mouth watering! And then there were the Crabcakes...AWESOME!
You definitely have to try this hot spot!

Very fresh ingredients and delicious food. Terrific wait staff makes excellent recommendations. It’s a very friendly atmosphere. The owner was sitting across from us at the bar, and our waiter introduced us. His goal is to be a neighborhood restaurant where you’ll see your neighbors.
