The time before that we got drinks and order taken right away then waited 40 still no meal. The waitress forgot to put our order in, the manager took over and we got... More

I have eaten there a few times, I'm really partial to their wings, they are good. They also have other selections as well that are tasty. If you get a chance try them out.

Had the opportunity to go for dinner for my hubby's birthday. Be sure to tell them at the start if you have a birthday. It was by accident it was mentioned and the staff went out of their way to make sure my hubby was treated to a wonderful chocolate something or other.... and lots of it for sharing. We... More

Food was ok. I ordered a shrimp and scallop pasta and my son ordered blacked bassa fish. Both were okey but we had to wait about 25 minutes for the food. Entree was about $20 each. The place was busy on Saturday evening.

Wanted to review the one on Centennial but not listed. That one is very poor value for the money and the service was not so good. Food was mediocre and expensive. Portions would be good for a small girl but not me. We used to frequent TJs when they first opened but now would not return.

I enjoy the Greek salad and I usually get chicken added to it. The Big Crunch sandwich is a favourite of my friends and the... More

Pretty good service. I have a condition that doesn't allow me to eat certain things and the server was very kind with making sure that I would be taken care of. There were some issues with forgetting to put in someone food order, honest mistake, but other than that, overall very good.

Thank Sarah S
