It was terrific!
It was a very noisy night for dinner as there was as loud group of people. The server was overwhelmed and lacked attention to my table. Some of the food was cold and my favorite dish is no longer my favorite. Maybe there is a different chef that changed the recipe.
Dinner was great and service was also.
We go there all the time and like it a lot. Great salads & we like sitting in the inside porch.
Yesterday things were just off. Under staffed &’poor service. We will give it some time to try again.
It’s always a pleasure to visit! Everything is to our expectations. It’s not easy at this point in time to keep up the standard of excellence, but TW never disappoints
Not my favorite meal this time. So, usually, we enjoy our dining experience at this place. We had the fish taco and shrimp taco. The shrimp was good, but the mahi-mahi was dry. The lettuce in the side salad wasn’t as fresh as we would have liked and looked like it should have been tossed out. So, all in all, just so-so. Definitely not as good as previous dining experiences here.
Food was good but server brought incorrect order. Sandwich was ordered without tomato and mayonnaise and came with it. That was disappointing
Have enjoyed Tarrents West both as a couple and for buseniss ocasstions. always great food selection and service
Outstanding service and food. Social distancing for pandemic was very well done.
Another good dinner night. Good C-19 precautions in place. It’s hard to give 5 stars for any restaurant during C19 as everything is off from normal. We will return.
Service was excellent. Waiter was friendly and helpful. Food was good. We ate there two nights with our out-of-town guest.
Thanks so much for the awesome review! I'm so glad you and your guests had such a wonderful dining experience with us. We aim to give good service and good hospitality!
Social distancing was not a problem at all! They have the restaurant set up accordingly! Food was delicious as always!!!
Thanks for the review, Carol! We take our guests and staff's safety very seriously! Our food is pretty delicious, right?! Can't wait for your next visit.
We always have a great meal at Tarrant's West! Never disappointed.
Thanks for the review! So glad to hear you had ANOTHER great meal with us!
Tarrant's West is quickly becoming a favorite. The atmosphere is absolutely perfect and the food and service make it a great value. I can tell that Tarrant's West is taking COVID seriously, offering a clean environment and they have a social distance protocol that matters. Tables are well spaced, bar area is closed off and staff is wearing masks and gloves consistently. My favorite things are the menu (LOTS of choices) and the ambiance. I'm a fan!
Thanks for the stellar review, Richard! I'm glad you appreciate the precautions we're talking at this time. Our number 1 concern is the safety of our guests and staff. The good food and good service makes things even better!
We have eaten at Tarrant's West numerous times recently. The food and service are always excellent, and every precaution is carefully being taken by the employees to keep us safe and make us feel comfortable. Great job!
Thanks for the fantastic review, Pam! I'm so happy to hear you had yet another awesome visit with us. We aim to give good food and good hospitality! Can't wait to have you back!
We were celebrating our 20th Anniversary. Our friends told us about Tarrants and we decided to check it out. It was great. The drinks were awesome!!
Thanks for the great review, Mike! I'm so happy you had such an amazing anniversary with us. I love our drinks too!
The waiter wasn’t very attentive. Food was good
Thanks for the review. I'm sorry to hear your server wasn't very attentive. With the pandemic, we've been teaching them to give more space than usual, but we'll be sure to remind them to still check on their guests regularly. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your food! We hope to see you again soon.
Great food and service again! The attention to safety is also excellent!
Thanks for the wonderful review, Shellie! We aim to give you good food and good hospitality!
Not sure if the kitchen staff changed - but the Reuben I’ve ordered many times prior did not come out the same. First, it was probably cooked 10-15 minutes prior to when it was brought to our table - so it was cold. It only had the corned beef and sauerkraut, dressing on the side. The bread was to even toasted. If this was my first time at Tarrant’s, it would be my last. It was definitely an “off night” for the entire team.
I'm so sorry for your terrible experience. I'm so sorry that the food was bad. We pride ourselves on serving our guests good food. We missed the mark terribly. We're using your review to retrain our back of house staff, especially since there's been no new changes. We'd love to extend a gift card to you to see our improvements. To what email address could I send it to? Again, if there's anything else you could think of that needs to come to my attention, please let me know.
I took my 92 year mother in law who isn’t getting out much. I have to say I was disappointed but realize things are different now. Service was fine but I feel our server was stretched. She watched us but had little time to stop. Not her fault. The food was disappointing. My tuna was dry and both of our green beans were tough and not worth eating. Her meal was ok but not worth what we paid.
Dessert was divine!! Sorry for negative comments. I am sure it will be better next time.
I'm so sorry for your and your mother's experience and that your service wasn't very available and that the food was bad. We missed the mark terribly. We're using your review to make sure there is more management in the dining room. We'd love to extend a gift card to you to see our improvements. To what email address could I send it to? Again, if there's anything else you could think of that needs to come to my attention, please let me know.
The interior of the restaurant had a foul odor, and the servers seemed to have been having a really bad day. Not sure what was up but it was not our usual experience.
I'm so sorry for your terrible experience especially when you know how great we can be. I'm so sorry the wait staff wasn't hospitable and that there was foul odor. We pride ourselves on hospitality. We missed the mark terribly. We're using your review to retrain our servers and providing more management in the dining room.

Thanks for the awesome review!
The food always underwhelms but the setting is nice
Thanks for the review I'm sorry to hear that you didn't have an enjoyable meal. Could I know what you had or what improvements you think could be made?
Service was slower than normal.
Hi and thanks for the review. We're working with a limited staff right now and ask you bare with us as we get back into the swing of things! We hope to be able to bring more staff back soon to help with some relief!
Once again Tarrants did not disappoint. Nick behind the bar is the best and we will miss Kyle so much. He is the consummate manager, host and bartender and will he will be missed . I’m sure Nick and Brittany will be just as personable and excellent as Kyle. I highly recommend Tarrants food and service anytime.
Thanks for the great review, Nancy! I'll be sure to let Brittany and Nicky know how well received they are and how much Kyle will be missed! We can't for you to join us again soon!
Great food, great staff, great service! We love Tarrant’s West!
Thanks for the wonderful review, Lisa! We pride our self on good food and good service. Glad you received both!
They took every precaution to keep us safe during the COVID19 Pandemic and they did it with kindness and firmness. It was awesome.
Thanks for the fantastic review, Jake! We take our staff's and guests' safety very seriously! I'll be sure to let our staff know to keep up the great work.
Tarrants's West is doing a great job of providing excellent food in the safest way possible, served by outstanding servers. It has been one of my favorite places to eat during this time of restaurants reopening.
Thank you for the amazing review, Pam! We take the safety of our staff and guests very seriously while still providing you with that same hospitality we're known for!
Always a great place to eat. Not many people there but the kitchen staff still prepared a delicious meal for us, beautifully presented. Not Tarrant's fault, at all, but the limited capacity with spread out tables limits the restaurant's usually energetic vibe.
Thanks for the great review, Gastro! We can't wait to get back to our normal, bustling restaurant, but our main concern is keeping every safe right now. I'm glad you enjoyed your meal and can't wait to have you back!
Tarrants West continues to be a favorite! The staff is so accommodating and pleasant and Nick makes the best drinks in town! The food was excellent as always... plenty of mahi mahi on the fish tacos and accompanying slaws and salsas were excellent. We always love their fried oysters. You will not be disappointed here!
Thanks for the amazing review, Nancy! I'll be sue Nick receives the compliment. His drinks are SUPER good! We pride our self on good food and good service. I'm so happy you received both! I love our fried oysters too!
Food was great tasting and in good portions.
Proper, non-intrusive safety measures were in place.
Not sure what was up with our waiter. No interim check on progress and satisfaction, and getting a drink refill was frustrating (needed to ask 2 other people). Detracted from what could have been overall pleasant experience. No inquiry on dessert or after dinner coffee.
There are too many other choices in restaurants to put this one on our favorites list.
Thanks for the review, John. I'm sorry to hear your server wasn't as present as need be. I'll make sure that the check in policy with our guests are being reinforced so that this does not become a continued issue. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your food as well as the portions, however! I do hope that you will join us again soon,
Great food, nice atmosphere and good sanitation practices. I felt safe and will definitely go back!
Thanks for the awesome review, Shellie! I'm so glad you enjoyed the food and appreciated the steps we're taking to keep everyone safe! We can't wait to have you back.
Excellent food, excellent service!!!
Thanks for the great review, Reggie! We pride our self on good food and good service. Always great to hear when someone receives both!
Good menu variety
Good safety features with spacing, masks etc.
Thank you for the great review, Janice!! I love our menu. It's so much to choose from! We do our best trying to keep our staff and guests safe =] We hope to see you again soon!
This restaurant is not on what I would call the beaten path....so glad we took the time to seek it it out! The servers very friendly and food amazing....esp dessert! The bread pudding was out of this world, and huge....big enough for two and we couldn’t finish it. If you have not been, you MUST go!
Thanks for the awesome review!!! We're so glad that you decided to give us a try! We pride ourself on great food and great service. I'll be sure to let our staff know to keep up the good work. I love our bread pudding too btw!
Wilted salad, she crab soup was not as good as previous visits. Service was ok. Mahi Mahi sandwich was cooked fine, but had wilted lettuce and mediocre tomato.
I understand it is a COVID-19 dining experience, but you still need to execute in the kitchen.
Overall, the food was just ok. That has not been my previous experience, so maybe it was just a bad day.
Thanks for ANOTHER great review, Ginger! We love to hear it!
The food and value you get at Tarrent's is absolutely fantastic. They gone to extremes to keep customers comfortable and safe during the pandemic. Unfortunately, we felt like we were eating in more like a funeral home vs. the great lively atmosphere we're used to experiencing.
Thanks for the review, Riley! I'm so glad you had such a wonderful dining experience with us! As soon as we enter phase 4, we'll be back to the lively atmosphere you love!
Tarrant’s never disappoints. If you want great food and drinks - and be able to talk to your companions, you will love it.
Thanks for ANOTHER wonderful, Mary!
We had a wonderful time. Our serve managed to give friendly service with a smile while keeping on his mask. What a time we are dealing with. Food arrived in a timely manner. It was delicious. The side salad that I got with my meal was definitely worth paying extra for. The beat salad is out of this world great.
Thank you for ANOTHER awesome review! We really appreciate it.
