Waitress had no personality. I ordered the salmon and it was very dry. My husband had the filet and it was delicious.

Great place. Food is awesome and the atmosphere is perfect. We sat near the window and the lighting from the street lights was quite bright and in my face. Perhaps shades or a curtain would help for upper half of windows.

We've been to Tally's many times and is our go to place for casual but nicer dining. Tonight's food was just okay. I had the panko chicken that had an off putting flavor. My husband had the salmon and it needed more flavor. Would love to see some new menu items or specials that aren't super expensive. Seems like the same menu for last few years now. Love the owner and personal feel of restaurant. Will continue to go back but just an off night.

We sat at a high top table. We were taken care of right away. My dinner was very good. I had scallops with corn risotto. We had a flatbread with sausage and peppers. And a grilled romaine salad. Everything was great. Our drinks were nice as well. Fresh lime is a plus. We would go back.

Second time dining here. Food is excellent. Ordered the Panko chicken, steak and fries and ceasar salad. Everything was perfect! Also, had a treat of live music! Our waiter, Jeffrey, was wonderful and quite comical. Definitely will be back!

It was a snowy night but the place was busy. Our server was ok, not great. We ordered twice baked potato bites which were very good. My husband's steak was severely overdone. We had the Bibb salad which was good but the tuna was flavorless. Our key lime pie was good. Overall an okay experience.

Talleys is our go to for neighborhood feel, good food, friendly atmosphere. Our server Jeffrey makes it relaxed and pleasant. Menu not that extensive, but doesn’t need to be. Everything executed nicely.

Simply not good. Free cheese board on Wednesday with a $120 bottle of wine was a joke. Stale crackers and about 6 small cubes of cheese and slices of figs. Waiter said it is not much when he brought it. It was almost embarrassing to serve.

Food so so no style. Sorry, but not a great place

Service has consistently deteriorated which is too bad. We used to eat here once a week and now it’s rarely once a month. On our last visit we waited over 15 minutes past our reservation time. The owner blatantly sat her personal friends before 4 parties waiting for a tables.

The restaurant was chilly and then we were located near the windows - it was a cool spot. The menu is pretty limited and prices not inexpensive with many entrees coming without any any accompaniment. The Caesar salad, which we split, was meager and not fresh, tasted as though the dressing had a ‘smoked’ flavor added. It was off putting. The crouton’s were out of a box and flavored with paprika heavily. The pork chop was done to the right temperature and was tasty; however, my dining companion’s shrimp tacos were not edible. The shrimp tasted off and the dressing on the greens was off tasting too.
It was a disappointing dinner.

Based on web reviews, we tried the meatloaf -- good choice. Wonderful flavor, good portion, a not-your-mom's meatloaf (better), served on creamy mashed potatoes. Mushroom soup and salad were also very tasty. Excellent Manhattan. It was great to have conversation and not have to shout over the noise of most restaurants today. We had an early dinner; didn't stay for the live music. Will definitely return to try other menu selections.

Food was very yummy. We both had the baked French onion soup which was delicious! I had the scallops and risotto. Scallops were perfectly done. Risotto was good. My guy had the meatloaf which was very tasty but not a traditional meatloaf. Service was a bit slow but the waiter was very pleasant and answered all of our questions.

Good food, great service...... one issue I have is that you're open late on the weekends according to your hours..... but by 9pm on a Friday you're locking it up.... won't stop me from returning, but if you're looking to hang out late, not the place to go.
