A return visit to the Gulf Coast meant a visit back to TJs , and it was as good as we remembered. Plenty of choice on the menu, big portions, every one in our group happy with their choice and food ( which is a rarity in itself). Service was just right too. Sure we will be back again on... More

Went to TJ's for dinner and it was delicious. Kristina was our server and she did a wonderful job. We had the three cheese garlic bread and lasagna, both were yummy. Be on the lookout in the calzone if you don't like a lot of Ricotta cheese. It is loaded.

We have been here before and the food and service were great as usual. They got my order wrong, but was so nice about it was hard to get mad. Love this place.

The selection of entrées was good,but the food was average at best. The oil and spices for the bread was good as was the bread, but with all the restaurant choices, I would not stop here first.

We shared two pizzas and a bottle of wine. One person in the party had the seafood (lobster) pasta. We all enjoyed our experience and the service was good. Liked Slyce pizza better but a nice alternative.

Picking a restaurant out of hundreds... is always risky... This restaurant on the list of AAadvantage dining, was a real good choice. Good Italian food, on a nice quiet enough patio to eat outside. Service was courteous and fast.

Had lunch at this place over the 4th of July Holiday. Very friendly service as the girl who was the only waitress on staff that day was friendly and handled the bar area as well as both the outside deck and inside eating area. I hope she got more help as the day went on and business picked up., I... More

Meals are ample sized - plan on taking food home, even if you share! Dining area was clean, beautiful and relaxed. Service was courteous and attentive, and the food came out in excellent timing. I'm really serious about the size of the portions - the calzone is an entire large pizza rolled up and served on a plate! We also... More

With such mixed reviews, we were very hesitant to try this place. However, it was delightful! The prices were very reasonable. We were a party of 6 and everyone was happy with the food!
