                                    Terribly loud, cannot hold conversation without screaming. Food mediocre at best and way overpriced for what it was. Glad it is closed, maybe something better will open up.

                                    Apparently this restaurant is undergoing a change to new management, so hopefully the food will get better. I ordered a walnut-goat cheese salad and what arrived had fast food grade ingredients. Disappointing and almost embarrassing because I had suggested this restaurant for a business lunch.

                                    The fact that Tark's Grill is changing hands and getting new owners is clearly evident. No specials at all so the choices were very limiting since the menu is not large. We expect good things from the new owners since the run a very good restaurant in the City Cafe!

                                    I've heard this place will be under new management/ownership very soon, which may make this place one of my favorite places to go. The reason why I wasn't totally satisfied was the food. It was mediocre. I really like the location, ambiance, and the fact that there's indoor and outdoor seating. There was live music when we went for happy hour on a Friday night. It could easily turn into a great hangout for us if the food was upgraded a bit... even simple artisan pizzas could make this a sweet spot.

                                    The second time I have been there. The first time was so good that I wanted to go back. I should have just left it with my first experience. The service was horrible the second time. Our waiter was serving those who were ordering liquor more then us. Seems like he was working for tips and apparently we didn't look like the type who would give him a good tip. After ordering out drinks it took him 30 mins to come back. He went to surrounding tables but not ours. People who came after us got their food faster. Once we did order and got out food my husbands steak spelled like spoiled meat he proceeded to tasted and it was poorly seasoned and very chewy. We sent it back and our waiter gave us the check with the steak still on the bill. The restaurant is beautiful and the food that comes out the kitchen looks like something from a magazine but this time it was just a mess and I was disgusted.

                                    We arrived on time for our reservation (at noon), and were seated outside. Our waiter was great, took our order and brought our drinks. We ordered appetizers, which were really wonderful (shrimp cocktail and fried oysters) and for lunch we had sandwiches. I must say the shrimp salad sandwich left much to be desired. It was simply cooked shrimp with a little onion thrown on white bread/rye bread. There was no lettuce and the salad simply fell off the bread, and there was no flavor to it at all. We asked for refills on our ice tea, and they poured warm tea into our glasses. We had to ask for a glass of ice, and this happened twice. We did have a lovely dessert; the old milk cake is to die for!!! All in all, pretty disappointing - this was our first visit and not sure I would visit again.

                                    Tark's has undergone changes over the years; however it has been consistently a good selection for lunch and dinner. The menu is much smaller than it used to be and there are big plans ahead as different owners take over. However, although we stayed away for quite a while, due to inconsistent menu selections, Tark's has always been a good place to go.

                                    We went for Baltimore County Restaurant Week. Everyone was very pleased with their choices. We all had the soft shell crab for our main course. One person said her mussel appetizer was the best she has had since she was in Belgium. The other appetizers, wedge salad and tuna were also very good. The only drawback was the service which was slow, At one point our waiter disappeared for so long we thought that maybe he had gone home. All of us were surprised how noisy it was.

                                    We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the new Tark's The new owners have made some great improvements to the look of Tark's, and have brought an entirely new menu. Our dinner was delicious and the wine that was suggested was superb. We wanted to be seated outside because of the nice weather and enjoyed the beautiful renovations to the patio. The new owners of Tark's also own the City Cafe in Mount Vernon, and we love that restaurant. Now we have a great choice in the county and a great choice in the city.

                                    Tark's never disappoints. We dropped in with a friend for a light-bite, i.e. soup and salads, and everything was delicious.

                                    The food was either too salty in my case or too bland in the case of the person dining with me.The only thing that was good was the shrimp appetizer. It was so bad I didn't even want dessert which was included in my restaurant week meal. I felt it was a waste of money and calories.

                                    Wanted to sit outside, but no available tables. It would have been fine if there hadn't been fruit flies at our table. Gross. Salads were fresh but came out wrong the first two times. Someone kept playing with the lighting which was also annoying. Tarks can do better. Disappointing this time.

                                    We ate at a booth in the bar area of the restaurant. Not the best place to eat. The bar was busy and the area very cold. The food was okay that night although we have had better. Our waitress was very good. All in all not the best time we have enjoyed at Tarks.

                                    Came for an office birthday celebration. I had been several times for dinner. This was our first time for lunch, and unfortunately, there was some disappointment. When the entree salad with grilled chicken was first brought to the table, the chicken was clearly pink inside. We asked the server if it could be cooked more - she saw that it was really pink - apologized and took, just the chicken - left the salad that it was on - back to the kitchen. Returned about 5 minutes later, and the chicken tasted like it had been popped into the microwave as it was totally rubbery and had little to no flavor. When the server came back, we asked her about it and she said that she didn't know how they had cooked it. She did remove it from the bill, and was apologetic, so I would not recommend ordering chicken for your salad.

                                    Food was great. 2nd time there this month and had to fight off fruit flies both times (sitting on opposite sides of the restaurant). Had a birthday promo for a free entree and I asked the waitress if the main seafood dishes qualified. She said we could use it on any dish we wanted. Ordered scallop dish and a small salad to split between the 2 of us - the manager took off the salad as the free "entree". Didn't realize salad was an entree. Very deceptive and so between this issue and the constant fruit fly problem, we likely will not return. It's a shame. This was our date night place and we frequented 2-3 times per month for the past several years. It has consistently gone down hill. Drinks have also gotten much weaker over the past year.

                                    We were pleasantly surprised at Tark's Grill given that it is located in the middle of an office/shopping complex. The courtyard was very nice and the food was excellent. Our waitress was training but the service was still very good. Would definitely go back.

                                    We have been coming to this restaurant for many years and we notice a continuing decline in quality. The food can only be described as awful. My Ahi tuna burger was tasteless and came with a huge pineapple piece stuck in the middle. The chef also forgot to add the aioli sauce. My wife's scallops entree was equally disappointing. Our friends also commented on the lack of care and effort coming from the kitchen. The service was strong however. There are many better dining options in the area and we will take our future business elsewhere.

                                    The quality of the food was not up to what a fine dining establishment should offer. Menu was different from the one they showed online. Not a good thing to do to a patron

                                    Burger Tuesday was, to say the least, burger heaveb! My husband, our best friend, and I stopped in to see what this event was all about. The burgers were large, juicy, and perfect. I requested mine well-done, and it was juicy as well -- not something I encounter very often. Our server was a true professional, which I've come to expect at Tark's. We've gone there for dinners, lunches and brunch, both indoors and out, and always leave with a smile on our faces. Such a good place!!!

                                    We had a very nice evening on the outdoor patio. The service was a little spotty. It was crowded and threatening rain so they were a little rushed. The food was very good. I had gazpacho which had just the right amount of spice. I followed with their special salad and added crab meat. It was more than I could eat that night and I brought some home for the next day. My companion had tomato bisque which was smooth, creamy and very tasty. This was followed by an appetizer order of sushi grade tuna. Again just what was expected. it was a nice evening and a nice meal.

                                    Crabcakes salty to the point of being inedible . Also they compressed the crab meat into small round balls and .. If it was lump crab.. They squashed it. Salmon ordered well done came out RAW. Server took that back and it didn't return for almost 20 minutes. I did choke down most of my crabcake but they graciously took it off of the check. ( there were complaints from other tables and possibly they realized how salty they were. Server was overwhelmed .. The outside was filled and probably that's hard for the staff. It's conveniently located so I'll probably return and order carefully .. Only things that are hard to ruin!

                                    Should have asked for salad dressing on the side. Salad arrived with dressing that was highly vinegary. I asked for a different dressing to try to correct that taste, but was not successful. Salads here usually are decent, but this one fell short.

                                    The service was very good but marred by the food. We ordered a pork chop, they did not have it. We ordered a hamburger with bacon and cheese, it came without the bacon, we ordered chicken pot pie. it was served with a spoon and under the puff pastry was a milky soup with 4 pieces of inch sized chicken 4 mushrooms and 4 small carrots and a big bowl bad looking milky soup, and mussels that were not good at all In fact when we for our check we were toldthat we were not being charged. and also we ordered a tuna burger with roasted pineapple that came without the pineapple as they had run out of pineapple. All this for a 7.00 pm Fathers Day reservation. Not good!!

                                    Tarks which had been reliable and consistent for years is now like some abandoned ship adrift with an inexperienced crew and no captain. On Father's Day they were out of half the menu - no oysters, fillets,pork chops. The chicken pot pie a standby was soup with a crust. It was sent back twice. Service was abysmal. The manager figured out how bad things were and did not charge us. I am grateful for this but more saddened by the fact that Tarks is clearly done. I don't know if they have given up the ship because they are losing to the reopened Valley Inn or they are putting all their eggs in the Horseshoe Casino version but Tarks is no longer worth trying. Close it and let someone else have a go. It was a good restaurant and it had a great run but that time is past and the owners are clearly cutting their losses at the diners expense. Thanks for the memories and sorry there won't be anymore.
