Not quite what it was

My wife and our friends make this one of our dinner stops every year for many many years. It has always been a good experience without exception. This year was different. The bread and olive oil were excellent but the dinner was not up to past standards. Here is are some examples I ordered a... read more

I love the gulf coast and TJ's has become a must stop every time we are there. TJ's is right on Gulf Blvd in Indian Rocks Beach right across from the gulf, maybe 4 miles south of Clearwater Beach. They have inside and outside seating and a bar area with a tv. Staff has always been friendly and the food... More

I've eaten at TJ's several times and also had food delivered to my house from the restaurant. It has always been very good service and the food was excellent! The pasta and seafood dishes are outstanding!

My first clue should have been that their parking lot is always empty. My second clue should have been when I called ahead to see if they were busy on Mother's Day for dinner, and the rude lady said "Why do you ask?" Um, because it's Mother's Day and I figured there would be a long wait and we have... More

An empty resturant with abysmal service could not compensate for simply adequate food. Do not waste your time or money. There are a myriad of better choices within five miles any direction.

It was so good we went back again before I left because I wanted to try there pizza, that was really good too. I actually meet the owners wife, she was such a... More

Make sure you get the hand tossed pizza all the way. The fresh garlic makes all the difference. Eaten here many times, carry out many more. Always good.

We love this place! The food is excellent. There is indoor and outdoor seating and you rarely have to wait more than a few minutes to get seated. The owner, Tom is there every night supervising. Decor is lovely with dark wood accents. There is a small bar fronting the kitchen. They can accommodate large parties. I love the Veal... More

This is a very popular restaurant in Indian Rocks Beach. I ordered a white veggie pie, which is one of TJ’s gourmet specialty pizzas topped with assorted vegetables and cheese. When my order arrived, they presented me with what they called a white pizza. The order was obviously incorrect as it had no veggie toppings, but as an aside, it... More
