Love coming to Indian Rocks Beach. The variety of food along Beach Drive is to die for. TJ's is a favorite and judging by the crowd on a Thursday night, a snowbird favorite. The menu is simple but authentic. The pizza has the flavors of the old Country. The pasta is prepared El Dente and also a favorite. Add seafood... More

Dinner for two on a holiday weekend and was surprised how empty this place was on a beautiful evening. We sat outside (liked that) but service was pretty slow (we were told the kitchen down a person). Our server had a great sense of humor but was tough to compensate for slow food. Appetizer arrived late with the main course....not... More

We went to TJ's on Friday night. We arrived around 5:00 and were seated right away. It's not that crowded here yet as Spring Training hasn't started. We each started with a small salad with ranch dressing. It was larger than anticipated. The salad consisted of iceberg lettuce, two cucumber slices, onions, a tomato slice, and shredded carrots. It was... More

Two snow birds, looking for a change after 5 weeks of seafood. Found it at TJ's! Excellent Italian dinners, great outdoor dining, excellent service, decent prices. Right on Gulf Blvd. Veal marsala over pasta and chicken marsala with veggies were great! If you're looking for a change, this is the place to go. Nice and quiet on the deck, with... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant tonight and found it to be very good! We had pizza and the crust is awesome.........and fresh. We did add toppings for $2.25 plus but found that there wasn't much ingredients added for the price? Don't mind paying for the extras but fell short on the portions ...........still great tasting pizza. We will... More

I had lunch here today. Added a Caesar salad for only 1.50 which was larger than a side salad. Includes bread w/olive oil and herbs. Then the spaghetti came out and it was also huge. 10.00 and could barely eat half. Marnie was a great server.

We ate here on a Saturday evening. It has quaint Italian decor. We shared a small pizza and it was more than enough food for two of us. The pizza was delicious

The best Italian restaurant on the beach. We eat here every year, usually more than once. Very reasonable prices for very good food. We have tried more expensive Italian restaurants in the area, but prefer TJ's to them all. Covered outdoor seating is great if weather permits. My favorite is the basics, spaghetti or lasagna, but nobody I have been... More
