My friend and I were on our way to Traverse City and we decided to stop somewhere in Manistee. We chose TJ's and I am so happy we did! It was a Friday night, but we somehow managed to get a table right away. The drink menu looked great and I chose the Vandermill cider. Our drinks came back fast... More

Group of 4 friends stopped at TJ's for a late lunch & beer. Everyone enjoyed their sandwiches / wraps & the extensive selection of draft craft beer. Cozy spot & excellent, attentive service. Looking forward to the next time we're in Manistee, and stopping at TJ's again.

Great atmosphere, below the Ramsdell Inn, step down from the street to enter, can see an old cellar from the dated building used as storage. Great old wood decor. Very much a Sports Bar with Big Ten Football on the tv's but not a noisy place. Easy access from the street, did not visit in the Summer so plenty of... More

Had lunch with my husband and sister and we were all extremely delighted!!! My husband had the goat cheese, marinara sauce with baguette; my sister had the cubino sandwich and I had the brazilia sandwich. All were exceptional and totally surprising! Can't wait to eat there again!!

Being "elderly" we asked to share a sandwich. They gave us two complete plates with thin, crispy chips, dill pickle and a container with Plobano mayo for our sandwich which contained ham, bacon, pineapple and yummy cheese. The waitress could not have been more helpful. Will definitely be going back!

We were traveling from Wisconsin to Michigan (by ferry) and spent the night in Manistee. I'd researched the dining options, and TJ's looked like a good spot. When we arrived, I was very impressed.

We were only on here for drinks but everything that came out of the kitchen looked fabulous. The desserts were very enticing. Drinks were good and they have the best pretzels we ever had. Looking forward to going back.
