A group of 5 of us went for dinner. Bread brought to the table was soft and warm with olive oil. Salads were very good, with Caesar salad having some peppercorn kick to the dressing. All of our entrees were large and very hot when they came out. Quality and quantity were excellent. Definitely need to stop here for pasta... More

I was here again a few nights ago and must praise their consistently good pizza - especially the "Old-Fashioned Pies". The leftovers heat up well, too, just in case your eyes were bigger than your tummy.

Atmosphere is memorable although service & food were both mediocre. Seemed the entire waitstaff was struggling--several specials were out from the dinner specials menu. My daughter's order was wrong and everyone was finished eating by the time her entree arrived. Had a small pizza as an appetizer that was average at best.

We had a dinner party here for a birthday and sat outside under the canopy. The indoor dining area reminds me of some good Italian local eateries on Long Island because it is warm and cozy with the neighborhood "feel" to it. The menu has some classic Italian specialties as well as some daily specials that include local seafood. The... More

We ordered take-out from TJs. The order was ready when we arrived to pick it up. The wait staff was pleasant and efficient. The food was hot and smelled wonderful. During the trip home, we could smell the richness of the food. We had clams as an appetizer. The flavor of the clams and the sauce was delightful. With the... More

This is one of our favourite restaurants on Gulf Blvd. The service is great and the food especially good. We have the asparagus and shrimp pizza which is delicious. We have had other dishes and all are equally fabulous. Pasta and Alfredo are my husbands favourite foods and TJ's does these very well. We just love it.

Looking for a light dinner we stopped in here for a pizza. After seeing the menu we tried an appetizer of fried ravioli, GREAT, should be an entree. They have a large variety of pizza combinations and many other items on the menu. Will stop back if ever in the area.

I reviewed TJ's in 2012 and panned it a little bit, primarily due to what I thought was not so good service at that time. Since then there has been a turnover of some personnel and now I consider TJ's to have some of the very best servers in the area. We go to TJ's at least once a month,... More

Went to TJ's for lunch with two friends and our experience couldn't have been better! Although it was pouring rain, which precluded us from outdoor dining, the staff was warm and friendly throughout lunch. The food Is all made in house, so everything is fresh. All three meals were more than plentiful (doggie bags for all). The sea scallops with... More
