I go here a few times a month. It is always good, staff are very nice. Fish and chips is better then anything I have had in the uK. Great selection of craft beers and good German beers.

We were in the small shopping center where TJ's is located and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed and will definitely return. The menu is interesting and had many items that sounded delish. Two of us decided to try the mac and cheese - OMG it was good! Another tried the burger and was equally happy.... More

Loved everything, from the iced tea, to the atmosphere and to-die-for guacamole & shrimp tacos!!!! We will back soon, so glad we finally visited TJ's.

While I am not a beer drinker, my family members are and T.J.'s has the best selection of craft brews in the area. The food is also very good - the sweet potato fries are terrific and the fish and chips is also great.

The waitress was so accommodating to make sure we had time to get to the theater. Food was fresh and tasty. Drinks good. The chicken and waffles smelled so good but I got a bacon and tomato grilled cheese which was very good. Huge beer selection. We will be back!

TJs has a really amazing selection of craft and belgium ales as well as a fairly extensive gastropub type menu. When you enter there is a pretty busy bar area with a long bar, high top tables and booths. To the right there is more traditional style table and booth seating that works for families.

Good local (Paoli) hang out. Great beer selection of bottled and on tap beers. Pretty broad menu with recommended beer pairings. Food is good...like an upscale Applebee's.

We've been to this bar and restaurant many times. It's claim to fame is the many beers they have. They are a bit pricey, though. They do have happy hour, specials, pretty good food. Service is also quite good. The Bora as many TVs if you like sports.

I've been to TJ's a handful of times and the food is unique for sure. There's always a spin on a classic. I like their burgers, sandwiches, and beer. Service can be hit or miss. Definitely worth a shot!
