Great Food and Prices, Rather Deliberate Service Needs a Little Work

The T.A. Restaurant is located in the business section of Fall River, MA, which is a little rough looking and had my wife wondering what type of place I was taking her to. The restaurant itself is very nicely decorated and clean, overall it was a very comfortable atmosphere. We arrived at about... read more

I have had the roast beef with roast potatoes and veggies and all of that for $9. The roast beef is soooo tender. Only one time it was not as good but what the heck we all have a bad day. Try it I am sure you won't be sorry.........

Excellent service for dinner. We had the surf n turf special. Beef was cooked perfect with two jumbo shrimp. The owner came by to check on us as well. Worth the trip once again.

We ate here with friends one evening. It seems like a locals place where the bar tender knows everyone. Great food at a reasonable price. I would definitely go back again when in the area.

Cozy and very warm Portugese place, delicious food. I had a roasted octopus with roasted potatoes and rice, it was superb. They have a lot of other great things on the menu and a few specials on the wall.

This was some of the best food I have had. We had calamari, steak and flan. I could have bottled up the sauce on the steak and eaten it every day! The server was very frienly and helpful. If you are ever near Fall River, try it out!

I started with the kale soup, which was delicious--and I don't even like kale. For a main dish, I had Bacalhau a Casa, a very tasty peasant dish consisting of shredded cod, potatoes, red peppers, onions, and other... More
