“This is a surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

I visited the USA recently and as I had not seen Tara for some years decided to pop in and say hello. After driving up from New York, I was hungry and decided to have a burger from her menu, what a selection for a little pub? The food was excellent and really good value. We were served by Karen (who is one in a million). If you are in Rhode Island and want a day at the beach, head for Tara's. A decent meal, a pint of the black stuff and a warm welcome from Tara and her team and if your lucky some good music too, this is a gem of a place

“Best Beach Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

I love this place! I grew up in Green Hill (3 miles away) and used to frequent it during summer college breaks. After joining the military, I would often come home and always made sure I made a trip here regardless of the season. Now, I'm coming back to RI and I'm looking for places close to Tara's. I found a nice cotttage about 4 doors down and my wife and I had a fantastic week. We just relaxed on the beach during the day with our dogs and enjoyed an excellent Irish Pub at night less than 1 minute away. Tara has really transformed "Joyce's" for the better--the food is excellent, the music is great and of course, the beer is cold. I particularly liked the Uva wing.

“Rotten service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012 via mobile

The worst service I have ever had with a dining experience. The red head bar back was miserable, rude and condescending towards my party of 6. I will never go back based on her attitude considering who hired her.
