Great place for breakfast. Ate here twice. Chicken with biscuits and gravy. Excellent. Staff was excellent and food delicious. They do not understand what a macchiato is. Delivered me what tasted like regular coffee in an espresso cup.

We enjoyed our breakfast at TJ's while staying at The Jefferson Hotel. We chose the "Create your own breakfast" selection from the menu. The scrambled eggs were very good, the bowl of berries excellent. The best strawberries I had in a long time! The fresh orange juice was delicious. The only thing we missed was a slice of whole grain... More

After a morning of seeing the sites, we decided to end our day in Richmond with lunch at TJs before heading home. I had always wanted to see the opulent interior of the hotel, and lunch afforded us that option. The hotel was as beautiful as I had imagined, and the restaurant was grand without being stuffy. The staff were... More

I had the opportunity to get some lunch (to go) from TJs. I had the shrimp and grits and the salad nicoise. Both were delicious, not very pricey and incredibly filling. I would go back for lunch in a heartbeat!

I didn't think I was hungry until they brought my plate! We had a nice table with views out two sides of the hotel on a beautiful morning. The coffee, water, and orange juice were plentiful and well served. My wife ordered Eggs Benedict and I got Chicken and Biscuits. We both got hash browns. These hash browns looked so... More

We just sat at the bar, but the bartenders were fabulous and extremely attentive and friendly. We didn't have a chance to eat here as we had just eaten at Lemaire, but would highly recommend the staff!

We enjoyed eating here because just a bit more relaxed than Lemaire. They were very busy. Our waitress was very nice. They were a little slow bringing drinks but believe it was due to the crowd everywhere. My husband loved his filet and his apple raisin bread pudding with cinnamon pudding. I believe I may have misread something and ordered... More
