Atmosphere was good, but the food was only OK. There were 4 of us dining and all felt that the soups, salads, and diner was nothing to rate the experience a 4.5 as indicated on TravelAdvisor. The food was average.

Just stopped in for a couple beers but I saw many people eating there and the food looked really good. May have to try it next time. The location is great...close to the Manistee Inn where we stayed.

T.J.'s has a delightful atmosphere, and a great wait staff. Enjoyed a HUGE salad and my friend just relished the chicken alfredo. Have come here a few times and food is consistently good no matter what you order. Would recommend for lunch or dinner!

This is just an average place to go. Nothing stood out. The beer list was average with no great beers, wich is a shame in MI. The food was what you expect in a pub, greasy sandwich and chips. There are much better places in...More
