Stopped by last Monday after a work conference. TJs is an open and airy bar with a great variety of constantly changing taps. Their bottle list was also very impressive. It had a nice combination of local favorites like Victory and Lancaster as well as beer from far away like Russian River and Cigar City. Most were priced about what I would expect to pay. The atmosphere was a nice combination of locals and business people--mostly in their 20's and 30's when I went. I did pop by later in the week and the place was packed. The food was enjoyable. I had a turkey and sausage sandwich that was reasonably priced and actually tasted better than a lot of bars. The bartender was friendly, knowledagable, and not overbearing. I would definitely stop by here come my next business trip--and would get there early. A top notch local bar.

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.

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.

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