I finally decided to visit TJs Everyday when I noticed they had Two Hearted Ale on tap. As much as I love that beer, I had never had it on tap. Anyway, TJs is only about 5 minutes from my office so it is very convenient.

A: Very nicely done. I only visited the bar, but it was very comfy and warm in the bar area. The large display of taps are positioned right in front of you at the bar and it just looks impressive. The bar area is a little dark, but hey you are there to eat and drink.

Q: The place just oozes quality in all they do. It's obvious from the tap selection to the bottle selection to the menu.

S: Excellent. I bellied to the bar for lunch and asked the bartender for a menu. He asked what I was drinking and with no hesitation I told him Two Hearted. He says, I assume you have had this before? I of course reply that it's one of my favs and we embark on a 10 minute conversation about beer. Anyway, the service was great from the bar service to the kitchen service. Food came quickly.

S: Beer wise? Excellent in both tap an bottle. Great, great selection.

F: I had a nice ceasar chicken salad and it was very good. It was presented very nicely and it came quickly.

V: Not the best value, but remember where it is located (main line). Beers are about $5 a pint and the lunch was a little more than I normally pay. The reason I rated it a bit pricey is because their growler fills are in my opinion a bit high.

Overall a quality place that every local BAer should frequent when possible. Jeff runs the place and is very nice to talk to and asks your input on what beers he should buy for tap. Very cool. Needless to say, I will be back to TJs every chance I get. Well done guys.

One of the very best beer destinations in the Philadelphia area (or the world!) A ton of beer on draft, served correctly by a very good staff. Food is occasionally questionable (it's often very very rich, which can be great to cure a hangover but not so great if you're just looking for a reasonable dinner) but always quite tasty. The bar area has a great vibe, but so does the restaurant area - like two really great restaurants in one.

Great rotating beer selection on tap. Awesome burgers. Sports bar atmosphere to the right, booths and casual dining experience to the left. My favorite place to go out for a burger and a beer. Much better than any other options in tje area like McKenzies or Iron Hill.

Been going to TJ's since it opened. Great spot as it's damn near in the parking lot of my employer, and especially because they were one of the first bars that opened my eyes to craft beer. Scott's the man and one of the only people in the place I care for. Some of the employees are darn right not meant to be in such a wonderful spot (no names in honor of courtesy), you know who you are. Thanks for being there TJ's. May we enjoy one another's company for years to come!!

P.S.- Why do the waitresses get mad when you sit in the bar side, just to have some drinks and have a tab open at the bar? It ain't my fault there's not enough room.
