After hearing so many good thing's about their beloved mac-n-cheese.We finally said ok let's check this out and they did not disappoint.

As you walk in you are greeted by the hostess desk in which you could be seated in the dining area to your left in a nice size room or the bar area which was abit more open and what we were in the mood for. Bar to your immediate left with massive flat screens playing womens softball? Very unique looking beer lists as my wife and I wondered how they did that.EEK gads can someone open the shades it is like a dungeon in here!

Service was good as our waitress/barkeep was being very patient with us as someone in our party was more interested in chatting rather than decide what they wanted. Finally I just ordered for him.

On to the good stuff. The beer selection is solid, Some good stuff on tap and a nice takeout selection with some singles to try in the cooler on the way out the door.

The only negative thing were the prices.A bit expensive for just about everything on the menu for what you got. Example would be $10 for chicken mac-n-cheese when you could make an entire pot full of it for this price and feed the entire neighborhood.Other than that this place is great.

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

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.
