This lovely old building was a corner drugstore and it maintains the feel of the 1920's.I wore a fascinator in my hair and felt right in style . Tarrant 's has an extensive menu and I've tried many of their selections,each one was excellent!

Between Tarrants and Max's on Broad. Owner has done a marvelous job with decor and with the food. Wait staff well-trained; food selections varied, something in everyone's price range. Happy hour (11-7 BTW) at the bar at Max's has wonderful choices for an enjoyable time.

You will get a feeling of nostalgia the minute you walk through the door...This restaurant occupies a space previously occupied by an old drug store...the soda fountain is now the bar and the booths still remain...The fact that the food was really good was icing on the cake. They have an expansive menu for most anyone's taste...from sandwiches to salads... More

I remember when this restaurant was a drug store. I knew of the family that owned it. I loved the soup and sandwich combo. I shall return.

I spent a day in Richmond a few weeks ago and we ate a late lunch at Tarrant's, based on fantastic local reviews. The restaurant is beautiful and is located in a central, very walkable area with lots of unique shops. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food though....amazing. I do believe that the freebie garlic bread appetizer (yes,... More

Great variety and perfect escape from the shopping mall mega-franchises. We have eaten both downtown and at Tarrant's West and neither have disappointed. We especially love the open air of the new (huge) covered porch.

Tarrant's has been a wonderful restaurant for years now. Impeccable service, food, and ambience make for a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion or just have a quiet dinner out. Some friends have been surprised that they also serve (delicious) pizza, but the seafood and other dishes are delicious. Please give it a try and enjoy!

Very average restaurant , the environment is depressing. The food has nothing exciting in the menu. Stays late open. That is the only good about it.
