A very nice experience for our anniversary dinner! Phenomenal service, the shrimp cocktail was great, and the crab cakes were mostly crab. Very nice ambiance as well.

We were celebrating a double birthday. The staff was very attentive and generous. When one of our group had a little mishap the staff was quick to clean it up without making her feel bad about it. We are already talking about a return visit to try other things on the menu.

Really good food. Thoughtful menu. Takes forever to get a cocktail or a glass of wine. We were almost done with appetizers before our cocktails arrived and then a taste of wine arrived half way through dinner. Either the bar is inadequately staffed or the wait staff isn't getting to the bar on time. My martini was warm and had sweat on the glass so maybe it's the wait staff. So frustrating because it could be great. After several visits our drinks always take forever. No idea why. Bummer....

My family came in from El Paso to celebrate my 30th bday on Monday at TJs after I already had an intimate bday dinner with my husband at TJs two days prior. Service was amazing, food was beyond delicious. Fresh seafood, great specials and coursed in a timely manner. I had the lobster roll on Monday and the Idaho trout on Saturday. Started with oysters and shrimp cocktail as well. Ill definitely be coming back!

The restaurant was freezing and uncomfortable. The tuna on the tuna sandwich was super thin with a massive bun. The tuna or sauce was extremely salty and hard to eat. I wouldn’t recommend it.

Two lobster rolls and coconut rice. Other team than the roll no being able to support the lobster meat, everything was great! The Valencia Gin & Tonic was refreshing and smooth. Service was spot on.

Came here on a busy Friday night and while it was very loud, and our service was questionable, the food was absolutely outstanding.

Halibut special was the best fish I’ve had in Dallas in years.
Great cocktail menu also - the Moscow Mule was excellent.

We saw a couple of desserts go by that looked fantastic… Will have to try one next time!

I had my heart set on a beautiful seafood tower. (Papa's Brothers) We didn't want to go that far and we like new restaurants. We so got ripped off. The picture that in on your site looks great, NO! Not only no but HELL NO. Ok, the service was awesome! Very nice, fast and just perfect.
We started with soup. It was warm at best! Maybe closer to room temp. I had the seafood special and my wife had the gumbo. Ah-NO!
Ordered the tower (175.00 ) And NO! Just no! We pointed out that it was not the same as in the photo and were told, that was an old photo, or maybe from the Dallas location.

For 150.00 I go to Papa's Brothers and I'm full. We went to McDonald's across the street afterward. I'm sure their other selections were awesome. But NOT the three-level seafood tower. Unless you like ice.

We tried and we failed! Note to self, it's not always what the picture looks like.

First time for us at TJ's. Tried half the starters and all were really good. Trout was great; mussels were outstanding; fish tacos were as good as I have had anywhere. Already returned for lunch!

Wonderful service, excellent, delicious food. The only thing I would change is to dim the lights - especially in the evening. Would also prefer regular chairs, not booths. All in all, we love the food and service so much, we will definitely return.

Some indications of a subtle slippage in overall food quality. This has been the best place for seafood in Dallas period. This visit and the last a few weeks ago were not wonderful. Fine....,but a possible step down. Not sure what is happening or why.

The restaurant is beautiful inside, you feel like you're in Cape Cod. The octopus special was amazing, as were the oysters and the truffle fries. I was not a huge fan of the ceviche which was disappointing, but overall our meal was great. We were seated next to an extremely loud table which made it difficult to have a conversation and hear our waiter, but otherwise I really enjoyed the ambiance.

The food and the waiter were outstanding. The only negative is that the bar is small and has very limited seating.

Always good food and love the atmosphere. What I don’t love is their website that Doesn’t give any indication of the times on Tuesday they offer half-price wine bottles. Mind you all the other happy hour information has specific hours, we drove from Plano to enjoy half-price bottle of wine and good food and their hours for this on Tuesday needs to be posted on their website.

Second time, so it’s NO FLUKE! The food is simply outstanding!! Have had Fish of the Day both times—different types and cooked to perfection, garnished just right and the sides YUMMMM!!
Enjoyed the focaccia as an appetizer and great drink and wine selection! My new Dallas favorite!

Have been long-time TJ's customers and have recommended the restaurant to many friends. As of right now, after last night's experience, I need to rethink that. Service was OK, but not at the level we've come to expect. One of our guest's salmon was undercooked; took several minutes to get anyone's attention to report this. The manager came by and did take the food back to recook, but that took another 10 minutes or so while the rest of us finished our meal. What would have made a difference is if the manager had come back to check on us again, or perhaps offered some small compensation for our experience. But he never did. I feel like in the past, that would have happened. So maybe this was just an off night. Hate to write TJs off completely, but after being really pleased after every visit, this was a disappointment.
