I had the opportunity to get some lunch (to go) from TJs. I had the shrimp and grits and the salad nicoise. Both were delicious, not very pricey and incredibly filling. I would go back for lunch in a heartbeat!

I didn't think I was hungry until they brought my plate! We had a nice table with views out two sides of the hotel on a beautiful morning. The coffee, water, and orange juice were plentiful and well served. My wife ordered Eggs Benedict and I got Chicken and Biscuits. We both got hash browns. These hash browns looked so... More

We just sat at the bar, but the bartenders were fabulous and extremely attentive and friendly. We didn't have a chance to eat here as we had just eaten at Lemaire, but would highly recommend the staff!

We enjoyed eating here because just a bit more relaxed than Lemaire. They were very busy. Our waitress was very nice. They were a little slow bringing drinks but believe it was due to the crowd everywhere. My husband loved his filet and his apple raisin bread pudding with cinnamon pudding. I believe I may have misread something and ordered... More

We had reservations due to the Christmas season. We were seated promptly. 3 of the 4 of us ordered the TJ blue plate which was wonderful. It was a sandwich with pimento cheese, apples, grilled onions and bacon on a thick bread. Each of us could only eat 1/2. I ordered fruit while the others ordered soups. We also have... More

We dined twice this trip....Thanksgiving evening and Sunday brunch. The food is spectacular.....the brunch setting is in the lobby of the hotel so that's a given that it's beautiful. I realize Lemaire is the star of this property but TJs could use some fluffing up and the noise level could be turned down a bit. The front desk people could... More

We were in town for my husband's 50th high school reunion. As we were doing some sightseeing in downtown Richmond, we were limited to restaurants serving lunch on the weekend. We went to TJ's at the Jefferson hotel. I ordered the Grits with cheese and blackened shrimp. The food was served in a cast iron dish. The grits were dry... More

I chose to take a friend to TJs in the Jefferson Hotel for a special birthday lunch. Seated in beautiful red uphulstered wing chairs, we were treated wonderfully and thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. Never disappointing, always special.
