I have often passed by this place but stopped by for the first time yesterday and I'm glad I did. The fish and chip order I had came with a generous amount of fish in a light batter: it was melt-in- your- mouth good. For an additional $2 I changed my side of fries for onion rings. Together, this was... More

The fish is very fresh, generous, dredged in-house, cooked to order, and not greasy. The onion rings are treated the same, and cooked to order. I want to try the fried mushrooms. My husband also enjoyed the fresh cut fries and slaw on the Seafood combo: cod, shrimp, scallops and clam strips. Eat it right there while it's hot and... More

This was my first visit this year and will be my last. I ordered a fish fry, onion rings and milkshake to go. I lie only a few streets away and it was 80+ degrees out. By the time I got home the meal was cold. I tried to eat it anyway as I had spent over $15.00 on it.... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant during a road trip in the Northeast in July, 2013 - it was lunch time and we had 8 hungry people. The fish was EXCELLENT, freshly caught, never frozen, lightly battered, and reasonable in cost! The owner came out onto thr porch dining area and chatted with us, making us feel very welcome, and when... More

Went to TJ's last night. While there, a man ordered his food and patiently waited walking back and forth. After about 30 minutes he asked how much longer, well evidently his order was given to someone else. He questioned how that happened and the owner TJ was cooking and he started screaming at the man!! You could hear him at... More

My boyfriend and I went to the grand opening and didn't expect to have the greatest of visits, the line was long an the kitchen was seemingly overwhelmed. The woman at the counter was very polite and we told her that we understood that there would be a little delay in getting our food. I ordered a veggie burger and... More

What a fun place! And the food is excellent.....many different choices for a fish fry.....portions are very large and could be shared.....but then you wouldn't get to take the leftovers home ;)
