What You'll Get
The sea has much to teach us: its tides foretell the lunar cycle, its salt treats us to delicious shark jerky, and its colorful creatures prove that nature looks better in Blu-ray. Celebrate the big salty puddle's sagacity with today's Groupon for seafood at TJ's Fresh Seafood Market. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get $50 worth of fresh seafood, prepared meals, and platters
- For $40, you get a shrimp platter (a $90 value)
Named 2010's Best Fish Market by D Magazine, TJ's family-owned brine bazaar has solidly stocked the denizens of Dallas with delicacies of the deep since 1989. Unlike some fishmongers who obtain their stash through unscrupulous urchins and the manatee mafia, TJ's sources its supply straight from the supplier to deliver a wide variety of fresh daily selections of ahi tuna, king salmon, and live lobsters, as well as seasonal seafood such as stone crab and Arctic char. Use your Groupon to pick and choose from the oceanic banquet, as well as TJ's roster of freshly pre-prepared fin-centric dishes, sides, and a variety of sauces and dips for dressing modest mussels or luring shy oysters from their half-shells. The shrimp platter is large enough to feed 10–16 fish-hungry friends and neighbors or to wield an otherworldly influence over their cats.
In addition to hot hooks and current catches, TJ's also accommodates the tastes of land-lovers by offering puff pastries, chocolate cake, and beef tenderloin seasoned and seared on site, and the friendly and helpful staff is on hand to offer suggestions and helpful cooking tips. Though currently open seven days a week, the market offers carryout service only, so couples may have to spend a little time prepping their pads for a romantic dinner of flirtatiously cracking the heads off of freshly netted crawfish.
- You’ve got to hand it to this small, family-run seafood market. It's going strong despite the 52,000-square-foot Whole Foods with an extensive fish market that moved into the shopping center where TJ’s has stood since 1989. The key to its success is hands-on service, which includes cooking tips, seafood classes, house-made marinades, and spices. It’s also one of the few mom-and-pops that buys most of its seafood directly from the source. – D Magazine
- TJ's is fantastic! We've been going there for years. The family that owns TJ's is so nice and they always give great customer service.
