We were expecting something more upscale for the price. At the very least, a sitting area where we could wait while our table was being cleared would have been nice.
The fact that the server asked us to “hurry and order” since they were busy definitely threw us off.
Food was excellent but the space and service will keep us from coming back to this location.

Had an absolutely wonderful time. Celebrated a birthday. We spent a little longer at the table than usual, but never felt rushed.

Scallops were delicious but only had 3 on the plate. Hudson House which has a much nicer restaurant
offers 4 scallops for less money and the scallops are just as good.

TJ’s is unassuming and underrated. I don’t think you could get a better prepared, better tasting fish entree anywhere. My husband wanted to get another sea bass instead of dessert! So good!!!

By far the freshest of fresh seafood in Dallas. Weekly speaks on lobster, oysters and more. My go to is that coconut rice with wasabi dressing.

Entrees (sea bass and scallops) were quite good. The sides (fries, mixed vegetables, rice, coleslaw) were nothing to write home about. But, then, it's called TJ's Seafood, not TJ's Side Dishes.

The food is always good at TJ's. I usually go to the Preston/Royal location but since it is closed due to nearby tornado damage, I went to the Oak Lawn location. Great service and great food!

We enjoyed another great dinner at TJ's. I ordered the Fundy Salmon. Not only was it cooked to perfection, but the citrus glaze took it up another notch. My husband ordered the feature of the night, which was halibut. It, too, was cooked to order with a beautiful butter sauce. The sides, especially the asparagus and mashed potato, were great accompaniments to our meal. We enjoyed a lovely French Bordeaux wine that was well priced. Cynthia provided great service, too. Can't wait to go again!

Great place to unwind after work, or pick up a great tasting meal without any fuss or long waits. Fish and seafood is always VERY fresh and prepared in tasty, no nonsense dishes that you can eat every day! Can't wait to go back~

A great fish house in a convenient strip mall location. I've eaten here a few times and the fish is always ultra fresh and impeccably cooked. The menu features everything from a simple grill to savory fish tacos. I am partial to their gumbo but the soup of the day is always worth asking about. Oysters are succulent but expensive and they come with some of the best cocktail sauces in the city.

Enjoyed lunch AT TJs. This was our 3rd time there. The food is outstanding for lunch or dinner. The coccanut rice is terrific. The scallops were cooked perfectly.

Everything was excellent! They won a D Magazine award for Best Seafood, and I can see why. The food was amazing and so was the service. Fish and chips, crab cakes, seafood chowder, even the iced tea were all exceptional. The service was awesome as well. Will definitely go back.

Food was bland...service average.
Oysters were good!
Waiter reminded me they were closing at 9:00 And it wasn’t even 8:00 yet - 2 couples came in after us and sat.
For $150...I’d expect better.

Everything was wonderful, as usual! The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is due to the fact that they still serve plastic straws, even when not requested. I hope that they jump on the bandwagon of losing single serve plastic items like straws, to help with the garbage in the ocean!

Very nice experience other than the fact our waitress brought us the check without asking us if we would like anything else! T.J.'s is a great little restaurant but it is not a fast service (and out) restaurant.
