I don't review too many places anymore, unless they leave a strong impression. TJ's is one of those places. And it's not because of the beer selection - which has been excellent both times I've been there, dangerously so. And not the food either, which has been very satisfying, along with probably the best sweet potato fries. The service has been impeccable as well, but ultimately, TJ's is in the highest echelon of beer bars that I've been to because the atmosphere that Teresa and Jeff have created at their bar. Downright friendly and relaxing, this place more than any other I've been to makes me feel like I'm at a close friend's home as a welcome guest, even though I'm far from a regular. This place comes with highest recommendations. (745 characters)

Upscale place that had both a bar area and a more formal restaurant area. Obviously we were there for the draft list -- I remember something on the order of 20 lines. From the looks of it they have specials on Mondays to kick kegs from that weekend and get new stuff on. When we visited there were 5 options from Hill Farmstead, which was amazing. Apparently they will always have something on tap from HF going forward, and I will also always be there as I move to the area. Oh yeah, food. Very nice, gastropub+ type fare. (523 characters)

Great variety of dishes, all are executed well. Bar has a nice ambiance, as does the dining room. Best tap list west of Philadelphia. A favorite stop for my wife and I. (168 characters)

TJ's has a consistently fine beer list coupled with fine cuisine. What's not to like? Their Anniversary events are top-notch, too. (130 characters)
