We had dinner at JT's. Its not much to look at but the food was excellent for the price. We both had seafood and it was delicious. The service was great and quick.

I love Swiss cheese omelets, but could not eat the one served here.The egg was dark brown on one side (properly cooked eggs shouldn't be browned at all). The cheese was flavorless (cheap quality) and it was evident that whatever shortening they use to fry eggs and potatoes is either sub-quality or used too many times. It gave everything a... More

My family used to frequent this restaurant A LOT, however, ever since they changed chefs the food doesn't taste as good and seems like the quality/portions of the food went down while the prices went up. It used to be excellent food for a great price but I don't think it's worth it anymore. Also, beware if you get take... More

Food is always fresh and tastes great, definitely one of our favorite places to go!! Excellent service and always a super friendly wait staff! If you didn't already know you were at a diner you would think you were at a 5 star restaurant!! Always try the home made soup!

Do not recommend. Of course with low expectations, you might be surprised. Breakfast? Try McDonalds, Dynasty or Dockside.

TJ's offers all around good food, with nice service, Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Casual attire, or work clothes. They have ample seating with counter service as well.

The hostess was polite, friendly and got us seated pronto! Our waitress was friendly and efficient. Coffee within minutes. I had the #5 - French toast, two eggs, bacon and sausage. I got the grits substituted for the potatoes. It was substituted without drama. The French toast was very good. It's what everything a diner should be.

There is something for everyone here on their menu. You really get alot for your money here. Try the early bird specials for $10.99, you get an entree along with soup, the salad bar, and dessert. You can't finish all that they give you. No matter if it is breakfast , lunch, or dinner, give J.T's a try. You will... More

I really like the breakfasts here. Eggs made to order, great waffles, homemade potatoes and a bottomless cup of coffee makes for a great start of the day. Service is fast and the place is clean. Could do without the television but can't beat the value at JT's.
