Feel bad that we took our daughter here for her 13th birthday rather than Nakashima. First issue was we arrived at 5:30 and had a 20 minute wait for hibachi table. Not because they were busy, but because they only have 2 chefs for a total of 12 tables. Once seated, our waitress was anything but a gracious host. When... More

We did the dine-in option (not hibachi, which they also offer). Our server, Hamilton, was great! He was on top of his game and very knowledgeable about the entire menu. The food excellent.

My daughter-in-law is the pickiest eater on the planet, and even she loves this place. Hibachi is fun for the whole family. The chefs are entertaining while cooking the food. The food is... More

Arrived at 9:30pm (open until 11pm) and were shown to a table. We were not asked if we wanted Hibachi... okay, fine. Ordered Sake from the drink menu. Nope. We don't have that. Chose another sake. Nope; out of that, too. Settled for the only one available - which was, of course, the most expensive, and the waitress brought out... More

The chef was awesome! Made it fun for everyone. Had to refill his squirt bottle of sake or what ever it is! Catching food, drink! Great time!

This was my first time at T-J and will definitely not be my last!! I enjoyed the sampler appetizer, an X lemonade and a bowl of soup (wish I could recall the name), and it was all wonderful! Our waitress was very friendly, and the atmosphere was relaxed and enjoyable. A wonderful experience overall!

We are new to the area and our kids love the Hibachi style dinner/show. We have tried several of the Hibachi restaurants in the Fox Valley area and keep coming back to TJ's. Hand's down to he best in the area. Great food and lots of fun.

A little pricy but you pay for quality. We ordered 3 rolls and an appetizer. We were full but not overfull.
