I don't live too far from Tarpy's, and we wanted a special dinner for our daughter and her hubby's anniversary, This was special indeed !!! I reserved ahead, and told them about the anniversary, she said, "we'll get you set up". We had a table in a little room mostly to ourselves, with Balloon's on the table, special treat that... More

The ribs I ordered were considered an appetizer, but were very filling and tasty. The service was very good and location was convenient to Mazda Raceway, Laguna Seca.

Went there to celebrate my wife's birthday. There were 8 of us and 2 toddlers in high chairs. We made reservations well in advance and they had everything set up and ready to go. The food was great, and the desert they brought my wife was a great touch. Wendi was our server and did a great job.

My wife and I recently tried this restaurant and were impressed with the quality of the food. I would say that my wife's steak was a little dry (over cooked) for medium, but my ribs were very good. California BBQ is (generally speaking) terrible, this place provides a nice atmosphere and pretty decent southern style cuisine. That said If you... More

This place is BUSY. Very popular. The setting is really nice - both inside and out. The bar is also very pretty. Reservations are really suggested, especially on the weekend. I had salmon and it was cooked nicely. My guests had ribs (really huge if you get the full size) and my other guest had a steak (which was okay).... More

They are generally busy at lunch, but for a good reason. Their food is great and they have great service. Alfredo particularly is a great server! I recommend their cob salad.

This time we really wanted to explore the menu. My friend and I decided to share items so we could avoid having to actually choose from all the things we wanted. Wendy was so attentive that she heard us talking and had all the items split for us from the kitchen. My friend was so impressed they asked me a... More

The space is casual and cute, the food is great, and service is excellent! I thought all the dishes were excellent (ribs, duck, fish), and the food portion is generous. Wendi is extremely friendly and made us feel welcome. Lots of parking around, and in general a fun place to dine at.

One gets the feeling when at Tarpy's of being well off financially as the atomosphere is upscale, the service is excellent, and the food is great. Dinning experience, all around with the bar area, inside and two patio areas, is superior. Parking is easy and so far not too crowded and no waiting.

We were here for a business dinner and were served the most incredible meal. I will definitely be contacting them for their recipes! A very lovely atmosphere and building, with different rooms, views, and nature.
