Excellent food and service. Small space so a bit noisy when busy, but I will tolerate that for the friendly staff and nice owner !

This is an outstanding local gem that I had the pleasure to dine at for the second time while on an overnight for work.
I’ve had fish both times and it has been fresh and beautifully prepared. Sautéed spinach this time had the perfect amount of garlic and oil. I sat near a local couple “Bill and Doris” who love the place and made dining alone so much nicer by their friendly conversation. Nicky, my waiter is great.

Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor with Open Table reservations. Lovely established local restaurant with a wonderful varied menu. Had the special of a sushi grade tuna steak with risotto. The meal was beautifully prepared and my server attentive. Double espresso finished the evening.

Went here based on the Open Table reviews. Appetizers were very good. Artichokes and stuffed mushrooms were very tasty. My wife enjoyed her fish dish, and my chicken dish was good but a bit heavy on the cheese. Our server was very funny and attentive. When we pulled up to the place, the sign lights and outside lights were out. Kinda looked closed. I told the server about the lights being out and how we almost passed the place, and told him he should turn the lights on so people won't pass by. He said "People pass by even when the lights are on!". Very funny guy!!

Overall we enjoyed our dinner at Tally Ho. Pretty good local joint with very large (maybe too large) menu. Perhaps they should scale menu back and zone in on what they make better. Sole Almondine was very good, Pork Chops Murphy was good. We did not like the crab cake (too much breading and it was deep fried dark brown which gave it an off old oil flavor). Generous portions. Only had house wines by the glass but they were ok. Salads were small and just ok (house basalmic dressing really had a lot of oregano in it). Nice bar area if you like to eat at the bar. If you are looking for a pretty good local join, nothing fancy, nice people, reasonable prices, large menu selection, give it a try. You may find something you like. My wife wants go back for the sole.... so the rest of us will try something else. Perhaps we will try the pasta meals which looked good at the next table.

The outside of this restaurant appears as if the place is closed or neglected until you see the full parking lot. I decided to eat here to celebrate a family birthday and the review of others tempted me. I'm glad that we came! The food was delicious by all accounts. The escargot was yummy and plentiful, the fried calamari was the best that I have had in a long time! Each of our entree's were spectacular. The only issue we had was an untimely soup, but it was okay as the soup was just as good. I will definitely be back!

Italian food done right. From the calamari to the chicken parm, every plate came out with the most delicious food and topped the night with a great cup of coffee. Staff were attentive and the atmosphere was clean and family friendly.

We had a cozy little alcove with a table for 4 that was nice and bright with a window. They did not over book and were Covid compliant with the tables. The look inside was very deceiving from outside. This was our first time here and have to say it was very nice, Food was delicious and our server Nancy was great! What a great personality and on top of things. We had Chicken Francese, Cajun Swordfish, stuffed Shrimp & Shrimp chicken and Filet Mignon Scampi romano ! Outstanding altho I could have used a bit more pasta with the dishes, But still very good. Dessert did not disappoint, we had choc mousse cake, NY cheese cake, Tartufo, and the best was the Lemoncello chake that was to die for. Again the slice could have been a tad bit bigger. Over all it was a great experience, highly recommend it. Just remember to Look closely for it on the road because if you dont' know where it is you may pass it by and have to turn around, very deceiving from outside ! 5 STARS !!!

Considering that the name is very English, they have some of the best Italian food I have had. Their specials were excellent. The seafood dishes are incredible. In fact, we were only going to go their once, but returned the next night. Portions are really big. Prepare to bring some home for a light lunch.

We love Tally Ho. Food is consistently delicious and the service is always great. The broiled seafood platter is my favorite off the special menu. We tried the artichoke francaise (also special) which was yummy and then fought to mop up the wonderful sauce with bread. My husband loves their Veal Marsala. Make reservation if going on weekend. We will continue to go back and highly recommend it.
