I needed a place for my husband’s 50th surprise bday where we could have our own room to celebrate with family and close friends. We were 20 people, ranging in age from 1-1/2 to 84, with dietary restrictions, and demanding appetites for high quality food and drink. Tarpy’s met all of our requirements, and then some. Just a lovely time was had by all! Highly recommend! Thank you!

We had terrific food and a wonderful waitress! Where we were seated though, it was very loud, as we were seated by a number of large groups. Other than that, I’d recommend Tarpys Roadhouse!

First time visit and I'm hooked. Took my girlfriend for Valentine's. The whole experience was smooth. Prices were great and the portions were unreal. We were absolutely stuffed.

Had the lobster special main course. Very poor quality, tasted like it had been frozen for a couple of years. However, the presentation was fine, and the potatoes served with it were great. The apple salad, the crab cake starter and the ollanenberry pie were also excellent.

Valentines day dinner. Tarpy's is always a go-to place for good food. I had the Bison short ribs and Rita has the ribeye. Both were excellent. Service was excellent and unhurried. We brought our own wine from the neighboring Roadhouse wine bar - Free corkage.

Wonderful Valentine's Day lunch in the patio. We took our elderly dog with us-he loves Tarpy's too. Tasty food, attentive waitress, cosy outdoor courtyard. Still a favorite!

We love Tarpy's, and we go there often. This time, however, seating was careless. The restaurant has several rooms of multiple sizes, and the hostess was crowding one room at a time, instead of distributing guests as we came in. For us, it meant we were seated in a small room next to a large (and relatively loud) group, while many other rooms in the restaurant seemed to be empty.
We should have asked to change, but we only noticed after we had already received our drinks. Next time I will be alert.

remember the place as one of the options for my son’s wedding rehearsal dinner some years ago. we ended up somewhere else. finally had a chance to try tarpy’s and not a bit disappointed. we arrived a few minutes early and they were very accommodating. our server was very attentive and named us the special for the evening. my gf had the halibut special and I had a delicious meatloaf dinner. we topped it off with a yummy lollieberry pie. overall a wonderful dinner experience at tarpy’s!

Very nice place, but too many tables to close to each other for my taste. Also, they need to work on their desserts. Besides that the food was excellent, service was excellent (although our entree took a while to come), and value was excellent.

What made my evening special was our waiter, Devereux. Upbeat and found a cube of ice for my sore neck that relieved my pain so I could enjoy my meal.
