I start with Raw Oysters or Homemade Chowders , Steamed Combo with clam, shrimp and crab is super. Fried Combo and Bucket A' Steamers, great too. And a beer to wash it down , its like heaven. Very small place, you need to get there early.

Seriously chaotic and fun at the same time. The staff is loud and so are the diners. This is a place where locals go to laugh, eat good seafood, drink beer and just have a great time. Don't go there expecting gourmet food and white linen tablecloths. This is a diner where you eat at the bar, watch the food... More

I would give Tarks a 5 on affordability, but there's not much to it other than that. Friendly service, but the seating and ambiance is awful. It would be a great place to go by yourself. Diner style, walk in and hope that there's an open bar stool. Would be a great place to go if you can sit outside.... More

Tark's is a one of a kind place. Dive bar. Tiny. Locals only. Etc. It has seating for about 15 people and the view is of the bar and the kitchen. Get the wings.

Glad we stopped here - delicious food. Very small, but friendly. We ate outside (inside was full), and ordered BBQ shrimp with curly fries. Fast service and good food. Lots of raw and steamed seafood too. We also tried the Manhattan Clam Chowder and it was good as well. Thanks Trip Advisor for another great tip!

Had lunch at Tarks which had lots of good reviews. They were right on. We had the grouper sandwiches and conch fritters and they were great. For desert, Key Lime pie.It had a super crust, but lost the tang of the lime. A bit much of whipped cream also took it down. All in all, a fine place for an... More

Tark's is a tiny place where the show is as good as the food....the boss, cooks, waitressses and local regulars are all down home folks who take no prisoners....everything is made fresh right in front of you....raw bar, chowders and the fried seafood is all great....seating is limited but the wait will be worth it.....

Recommended by the waiter at the Rustic Inn; where he eats! And when I told the bell captain where we went for dinner, a huge smile appeared. "oh yeah!" A sort of hard to find hole-in-the-wall fast-food type joint with food that really rivals New Orleans .....but maybe half the price and big generous portions. We had garlic-butter grilled shrimp,...

Tara's is legendary. The thing is, the people that are behind the counter with gloves are also bring it to the tables and dumping the garbage. It's great for a quick bite. Decently priced. Good fried food after the beach.
