Alma's finest restaurant

Jennifer and Steve are great hosts. The dinners are made from the freshest, best local ingredients. The restaurant is a cozy neat place with a home-town feel. The service is second-to-none. Grandma's Pot Roast served with carrots and mashed potatoes is highly recommended, as is their strawberry... read more

We ate at Tansy's because 1) we wanted to stay in town (not get back in the car), 2) the pub was filled with bikers, 3) the hotel was filled with elderly people eating broasted chicken, 4) our hotelier said Tansy's was "safe" now that the owner was cooking. The menu is very limited (which is understandable), and the pot... More

Our group really enjoyed our experience. There were enough of us that we tried almost everything on the menu. The kale salad was wonderful, chicken added, which was moist and tender. The pasta dish was perfectly prepared with a nice balance of sauce and noodles. The Reuben Burger was fantastic! The fish was perfectly prepared, tender and not too dry,... More

From the start, Jennifer, was very professional - responded to my inquiry quickly, offered choices in our price range, and was very easy to communicate with. The food arrived on time and every loved it! I am very pleased with how fresh the food was and... More

We were very impressed by the simplicity and excellence of Tansy's on Main. Pasta Sophia (freshly made pasta with oil and herbs) with perfectly sauteed chicken was an impressive and outstanding dish. (My dining companion's Buddha Bowl was a bit boring--but, to be fair, her request for no dressing tied the chef's hands.) Chocolate zucchini cake was rich, moist, and... More

On our road trip along The Great River Road we made a stop in the quaint little town of Alma. Walking down the street trying to decide on lunch we came across this small quaint bistro. Eclectic décor with mismatched tables and chair. The waitress was very outgoing, friendly and helpful. The minestrone soup was a pure delight; not what... More
