Always a good dining experience. Our favorites are the buffalo shrimp, chicken wings, mahi dolphin sandwich and the crab legs. The restaurant features daily specials. Gem in Dania Beach.

We've eaten at Tarks many times over the last few years. Great local grease pit dive full of character. One long counter with a few outdoor tables. The farthest restaurant from fine dining BUT a GREAT PLACE to have a few beers and wings. Oysters and clams, fresh or steamed. The Alligator dinner is pretty damn good as well. Many... More

Probably the best wings in south Florida, but the blue cheese dip tastes like mayo (not blue cheese enough). Good drink deals on domestic beer. The staff are real characters and the customers are friendly to each other. It's like "Cheers" might be in a Florida setting. There's a deal, I think Wednesday after 7pm, where you get 10 free...

We went to Tarks after visiting the downtown Hollywood area, because we heard their food was good as well as reasonably priced. They did not lie about that, as not only was the meal extremely well priced, it was also one of the freshest meals I have ever had while visiting anywhere I've been on vacation. However, the slow service... More

Greasy and overcooked. Locals seemed to love this place. I will not be back and you should run away.

Too start with; yes it is dirty; yes it is crowded and yes the servers are grumpy but it is all worth it. Went on a Wednesday night and raw clams were the special; never had them but very tasty and fresh. Oysters were fresh and not gritty and the wings were excellent. The wings have a hard crust not...

This is a true gem. Local dive seafood shack. If you are looking for some awesome fresh affordable seafood this is the spot. They have it all and if you are a seafood lover you will have a hard time not ordering the whole damn menu. Fresh mahi, grouper, clams, oysters, tiger shrimp, gator, scallops etc.... For all the Northerners... More
