I had the Scotish Salmon and husband had the Shrimp. Both excellent! We had reservations on a Saturday night at 7:30 and showed up at 7:00 (we got that one wrong). We were seated right away and service was prompt from there on out! Great wine list too!

After failed attempts with other restaurants, Tarrant's was a hit. We had 2 seafood entrées, 2 glasses of wine each, and dessert, and it was all wonderful! We enjoyed every minute, and highly recommend!

We called ahead to see if they could seat us on a Saturday night and they said "Come on over; we'll get you in somewhere!" Very friendly and accommodating!

Our food was great! We had the Green Tomato appetizer. Awesome. I had Seafood Combo which was good. It had a ton of crab. My husband had the Seafood Calzone and said it was good. Then we had the Amaretto Creme Brulee, which was awesome!

Had dinner there with friends before a concert at the Carpenter Center. Nice atmosphere (old drug store converted to restaurant w bar). Food arrived promptly and the server was friendly and attentive. Bonus: you can valet park with them and leave your car there for pickup after a show downtown - very convenient.

Many people have mentioned this place to me before I finally visited. When I was seated, I was expected the prompt service by the server asking me a drink, but even at the lunch time and there were not many customers, the waitress didn't come to my table for about 10 mins! I wanted a drink first but waitress was... More

Garlic bread is awesome! Everyone loves this place. Cozy with cute chandlers- old building. I had the chicken club sandwich. Very good. Friends had fish tacos - also very good.

Wow..what a grand old building this restauant is located within. Stay with the special & you can't go wrong. The atmosphere was better than the food. Must see place that's easy to find.
