Back for Dinner

We went for Lunch, and liked it so much we came back for dinner the same day, even though it was raining and we planned to stay in. It was the last night of our stay and we decided to get wet instead of missing it. We were not disappointed. Service was prompt, but not intrusive. Portion sizes... read more

A must stop on every visit. Excellent presentation and taste. Perfect from stem to stern. Lump crab cakes, wedge salad with crumbled blue cheese and rasberry, and, a fabulous new way to enjoy cabbage with horseradish. Over the years, all dining experiences have been wonderful.

Atmosphere, ambiance, flavorful food, tastefully decorated with a modern flare, servers friendly and intelligent!! Prices moderate to high but worth the price for excellent food. I had the Fried Green Tomatoes with Lump Crab Sauce.

If you find yourself in the charming little town that is Fairhope AL, then you must give Tamara's Downtown a visit. The food is excellent and the service is superb. I was recently in Fairhope (Point Clear) for a business trip, and I reserved dinner there with an associate of mine and our customers. The restaurant was very crowded (a... More

We stopped in Fairhope as part of a 4 day drive from New Orleans to Orlando to catch our flight home. The town itself is lovely in the evening and the restaurant did not disappoint. Even though there were only a few guests there, we received excellent service and the wine list was impressive. the fried green tomatoes and pork... More

We ate at Tamara's after the Fairhope Mardi Gras parade and, while it was quite crowded, they had a table for us and the service was prompt and helpful (explaining the several specials of the day). The seafood was excellent: members of our party had crab encrusted grouper, crab cakes, and oysters and all agreed that they all tasted fresh... More

Looking for someplace new to eat, we gave Tamara's a try. It's downtown but parking was easy. Inside it has nice decor, soft lighting, art work, well spaced tables. The service was quick and attentive. The special was delicious but at $30 it was a bit expensive. I'd definitely go back for the pleasant dining experience.

Went for our Anniversary!! Great food and service. Limited menu, which I prefer. Prices were about what I expected. Live music, over all a very good dining experience. Hope to try the dinner menu soon.

I just ate in this restaurant last night while attending a conference in Fair hope Alabama. This restaurant is downtown ( as the name implies). Once you enter, your mood will become calm as you soak the decor of earth tones walls decorated with professional art work specifically chosen for its soothing effects. The grilled a oysters were great tasting... More

Tamara's Downtown is entirely different from Tamara's Bar & Grill. It serves a gourmet level of food with an equally notable wine list. Service is very attentive, willing to make suggestions when asked, but not overbearing. The atmosphere is attractive and quiet with soft lighting. This is a good place for a romantic date. If you have trouble seeing in... More
