“Best Turkey or Pastrami Reuben Sandwich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

A great local place with friendly service and good food. The Reuben Sandwich is my favorite ! It's served with delicious steak fries too. The clean, friendly atmosphere has always made me feel comfortable. A great place to bring the family for lunch or dinner. I always bring friends and family from out of town there for a relaxed time with great food and friendly service.

“A good family restaurant...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

Dinner with 3 friends who both professed to greatly enjoying their meals which included prime rib, chicken marsala and chicken sorrento. I had honey BBQ wings which were meaty, moist and delicious along with a side of garlic mashed potatoes which were as good as I've ever had anywhere... Service was excellent and friendly. The restaurant itself is a bit worn and could use a good renovation but that doesn't affect the food or the service and is part of what appears to be a towny bar in the next room which is fairly loud but not overly intrusive. Go to TJs for a reasonable, tasty and plentiful meal - not for the ambiance...

“Excellent local lunch place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

I have been to TJs three times and each time the food was delicious. The waitresses were friendly and efficient. It seems like they have a very loyal crowd. The French dip was wonderful...best I ever had. I will go there again and again.

“Good food, good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

Service was excellent. Our server was friendly and efficient,even though the place was fairly busy. I had 14 oz. Prime rib special, which Came w/salad, vegetable (zucchini, very good), & potato.
The only reason I didn't rate it a 5 was the prime rib was too fatty. Other than that the meal was good. Will definitely return and recommend to others.

I had a chicken parm with ziti. I like the sauce and the chicken was good. The service was good. The portions were large and the prices were reasonable.
