TJ's is a great place to stop for a pint and some food. I've always been happy with the tap selection whenever I've stopped in, with the 25 or so selections, so I've never had an opportunity to delve into the extensive bottle list. There's always something new on tap and the selection is always rotating. Service is solid and the place is kid friendly. Food is good overall and the wings are a personal favourite. Prices for food and drink are on par with most of the other beer bars in the Philly burbs - in other words, a good value. Do yourself a favour and stop in for lunch or dinner some time.

The famous TJ'S drinkery! I've been wanting to check it our for years...

Well, color me unimpressed. This is your typical suburban bar/pub, albeit one with a long list of draft craft beer.

About 25 taps of mostly local/regional brews: Dogfish, Root Down, Robin Hood, Sly Fox, Spellbound, Levante, Tired Hands... nothing extraordinary or rare.

Glad I checked it out, don't think I'll be back.

Glad I check

Always a solid, well thought out tap selection with something to please everyone. They seem to have good relationships with distributors/brewers and pull a fair number of harder to find brews. Weeknight events are fun. I wish the menu was a bit more inventive, but the specials are usually pretty decent.

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.
