"We finally tried TJ's even though we usually pass it by every year. I am I ever glad we stopped in. The place is small but intimate and offers both inside and outside dining areas. The service was attentive and the food absolutely delicious. I really loved the huge Meatballs and the pasta was perfectly cooked. We will certainly add this lovely place to our favourites list for future trips to Florida."
"Erica was full of great menu advice. We ate beer batter onion rings stuffed folded pizza and an awesome steak and cheese sandwich. We’ve lived in the area for 20 years and this was our first visit that’s unfortunate!! We will be back for dinner soon!!"
"Kept passing by "saying need to stop at TJ Italian restaurant," well we did and definitely going back, when you do ask for Sheri, she was absolutely great server and person. We ordered the "Main lobster ravioli & Sorrentino," just yummy, the salad dressing was made from scratch, warm bread, all of the food was cooked perfectly. Now I'm hungry. A must stop, relax and enjoy."
Second time visiting this fantastic restaurant and it was just as good as I remembered. We stumbled upon it by accident(what a great "accident ") last year.Oh my goodness,the works pizza is fantastic. My friend had the philly steak,oh my! Probably the best Caesar salad I have ever had,and oh let's not forget the appetizer,Onion Rings,very close if not the best I've ever had. Sherry our waitress was great! Great personality. From the moment you walk in till you leave they make you feel appreciated as a customer. This is our go-to spot for vacay!
My wife and I own a condo in Indian Rocks Beach and we travel here every year. A "must stop" is TJ's. We typically stop twice here during our week because it is so good. There are many great resturants in the beach area but this is our favorite. Everything we've ever tried is very good and we've never been disappointed. We live in the Chicago area and our pizza up here is great, but TJ's is the best we've found in FL. Highly recommended.
We stumbled on this place by sheer accident!! The ambiance is wonderful and the food was even better! They have a great selection but their fresh fish was amazing!!!!!! I had the blackened Grouper Sandwich and my husband had the Grouper Rolando which was stuffed with shrimp and crab. Out Daughter fancied their cheese pizza which did not disappoint. Tony our server was nice and accommodating and even with our group of 8 he was attentive we have discovered a gem in Indian Rocks Beach!!
This is our favorite go-to restaurant when we get to FL for April & we’re never disappointed, whether it’s simply spaghetti & meatballs, pizza, veal Parmesan or anything on their menu. Service friendly & attentive & Tony was particularly accommodating & pleasant this evening. Do make a reservation in season - outside dining & sunset most enjoyable.
First time at TJ's tonight. Food is extraordinarily tasteful and delivered with friendly and competent service. (Ashley, Server). We've already made a reservation for another dinner with a special friend. Very satisfied. Thank you for great food and atmosphere.
Outstanding service, atmosphere, and prices. Oh yes, the food!! Spaghetti and (massive) Meat Balls with Italian bread was the best I have ever had. I can't wait to be back in Clearwater so I can return to TJ's.
Delicious food, early bird dinner specials (before 6 pm). Best calamari I've ever eaten. Great atmosphere with indoor and outdoor seating. Highly recommended!
This place .... simply amazing. Delicious . We had a waitress it was her second night , and she was soooo nice and very attentive. It was such an intimate setting with great food and good wine . My fiancé had a steak and lobster dish , it looked beautiful . fillet under a grilled onion then a tomato and to top it off a piece of lobster . And I had the eggplant app as a dinner and a side salad. All of it was sooo good
Probably the best fried calamari we've had so far, not a bit chewy! The mussels fra diavolo were amazing and cooked perfectly! The meatballs as topping on pizza were selfish! We stumbled upon this for dinner for our fam of 4, and I would definitely recommend! The service was perfect as well!
Amazing food & true Italian cuisine! Im now hooked since introduced to this place. Either casual hangout at the bar or upscale in dining room. Your choice but feels like home either way. Guaranteed you won't be disappointed!
