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.

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.
