With such mixed reviews, we were very hesitant to try this place. However, it was delightful! The prices were very reasonable. We were a party of 6 and everyone was happy with the food!

It's a shame because it's a beautiful place. We sat outside and enjoyed the weather while eating an Italian dinner. Turned out it was a mediocre dinner and terrible service. When we walked up the sign said "wait to be seated". We waited 3-5 mins and then went inside and found 3 girls standing there talking and texting on their... 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.
