It was dead when we went, but regardless the food was spectacular but a bit pricey
We went to TJ's for their Mother's Day brunch and it was terrific. Large variety of breakfast and lunch items - made to order omelet's, prime rib, eggs Benedict, paella, and much more plus a mind boggling desert and cheese bar. The service was great. all in all made it a great Mother's Day.
We were once again very pleased with the food at TJ's ..the Mother's Day buffet included an extensive array of breakfast foods, made to order omelets, fruit, cheeses, beef, pork, chicken, seafood, salads and desserts. Presentation was beautiful .. and everything was delicious. The six of us really enjoyed the multitude of choices. The room in which were seated was large and lacked windows and was therefore lacking ambience...but we did not ask in advance to be seated in the main room, which has all the windows! All staff were pleasant, helpful and anxious to be accommodating. The long stemmed red roses presented to moms was a very nice touch. Well done!
In the past my family and I have throughly enjoyed TJ'S Tavern however our last visit we were very disappointed in the service. The staff was disorganized and we're not attentive to their tables. It took several intervals for us to obtain he correct drink orders. Then replenishing water and coffee was non-existent. Lastly , the wait staff commenting to each other on the patrons was tacky and unacceptable.
Generous selection of breakfast foods and classic Easter ham and side dishes - the quinoa pomegranate salad was refreshing before finishing with a great desert selection- the Easter cupcakes had a homemade feel to them and staff member's young son dressed up as the Easter
bunny, visiting tables dispensing goodies and a smile - all for a very family friendly and gracious
Food was delicious and priced well. The atmosphere was nice and the volume was low. My only complaint is that the servers, though very friendly, consistently took a LONG time to refill drink glasses -- both at mine and neighboring tables.
Meant to make a reservation for brunch but ended up sitting down for the breakfast buffet. Good hotel food and good service!
The seared scallops were fantastic!
The food (once it arrived) was actually very good. A ribeye, crab Mac n cheese and the cheese platter were all delicious. The service left a lot to be desired. Probably won't become a regular spot.
It was nice to find such a nice place open on Christmas Eve. The bbq chicken skewers were tasty with the white glaze. Nice beer and wine selection too.
Decided to take the family , parents, aunts, uncles and cousins out for Thanksgiving so we could all be together and for once no one would have to cook and clean.
I don't think I could have found anything better. The food and service was very good, the staff was very accommodating and pleasant. We will be back next year.
In general terms, I am not a big fan of buffets for while the quantity of available food is typically very good, it is also typical that the food is average at best. TJ’s was on point in this regard. I thought the cost was a bit high as well. While on a certain level your options for restaraunts might be limited on Thanksgiving, I think you should at least expect an eating experience that is above average. TJ’s at least on this occasion, did not meet my minimal expectations.
My son and I went for the Thanksgiving buffet. This had been a tradition for the past few years because my husband didn't want me cooking both Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. I love leftovers, so it was hard to give that up! This was the first year without my husband with us. He passed away on April 2 of this year and he was very much missed. My son and I had a great time however and enjoyed the wonderful food and holiday atmosphere.
My family and I go to eat out on regular basis, and it was so refreshing and wonderful to have our Thanksgiving dinner with you all. Everyone at the buffet was kind and polite. We asked for honey, for my daughter's tea, and for oil and vinegar for my salad, that weren't on the buffet; both requests were received with a smile and willingness to help us enjoy our overall experience there. Trust me, we don't see that very often, no matter the cost of the buffet you may be paying! We left your restaurant talking about finding a date when we all could come back to eat there again!
PS - My husband loved your Prime Rib and I loved your little crab cakes w/shrimp!
Servers were very friendly and somewhat prompt considering the crowd on Thanksgiving. One lady was bussing our table, however, and actually rested her tray on my baby's head. Seriously. The food was all good but we would have liked to see some macaroni and cheese and green bean casserole. Also, the guy carving the turkey was TERRIBLE at it!!! Our first go-round he gave us each giant, thick slabs of turkey. Way too big!!! The second time around he had a pile of gross-looking turkey shards he was trying to serve. I asked for a fresh slice and he was a little rude about it. Also, most of the buffet utensils were difficult to use. I saw a lot of people struggling to grab the green beans with the tongs and I saw many people having issues slicing the cheeses and getting their desserts because there was no place to set your plate and the serving utensils and serving plates created a two-handed situation. We really did enjoy ourselves though! We are just all in the service industry so we do pay attention to lots of details! ;)
Thank you though for providing an overall very good, fun experience for my family on Thanksgiving!
