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.

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

When we entered the restaurant we were quickly ushered to our seat in the main inside dining room. The location has an outside porch... More

We have been going to TJ's for years. Fantastic pizza and delicious italian entrees. My favorite is Gamberoni Odino. Served with a salad and yummy italian bread with olive oil. We can never finish our meals because the portions a large. You won't be disappointed. Can't wait to return.
