We had a great dinner at TJs. They’re doing a fantastic job with COVID safety measures including disposable menus, masks and gloves worn by staff, and distancing between the tables. Our food was delicious. We both ate grilled fish and they were well cooked and flavorful. We love TJs and had a great experience!!

Food was good, but portions are small. Pricing for good seafood is good; but very small portions; this may be COVID related. Staff was extremely friendly end courteous

The shrimp cocktail was amazing.

I had the Halibut it was with a light Lemon flavor, a side Cesar salad which was above excellent and fresh vegetables.

Everything was fresh and healthy.

You can also buy fresh fish there and all of that looked good too.

The Preston/Royal location has a much nicer ambience and is more comfortable. But Tj's always has the freshest seafood! Best shrimp cocktail in town.

Best part was the oysters. It's a fish market with some tables. Zero ambiance. I'd return to buy fresh fish to bring home, but not as a sit down experience.

Food was outstanding. Our waitress ( I believe it sounded like Dedonnisa)? was very attentive without breathing down our necks. She was great at offering input on the different entrees. We will be back for sure.

Great food. Great service. Specials were half priced wine and $2 oysters. We loved it. Not cheap tho even with the specials. Probably the best salmon I’ve ever had. Coconut rice was just a tad too sweet.

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.

I had the shrimp cocktail, calamari and tuna creole and blackened. . The shrimp was very fresh. The cocktail sauce average. I don't see how it is the best in Dallas. The calamari was light and fresh. I recommend the calamari. The tuna was disappointing. i found the blackened wasn't really blackened and the creole sauce, which tasted like Pace picante sauce, completely wiped out the taste of the tuna. All in all? The freshness of the seafood was amazing. The preparation and sauces lacked. For the price of over 50 bucks a person , you can do better and be just as satisfied at any number of other places.

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.
