Great portions for the price, grouper was a little fishy. Crab legs were fantastic also the clams. Quick service all in all would recommend for sure

While it is hot out this place was hotter than heck. Who even wants to eat being that hot? The ice did not even stay in the glass the 20 min I was there. I think the food was pretty tasty but did not enjoy the buffalo sauce on the shrimp much. Kind of dingy and dirty looking this place... More

This was an experience. I have passed the place for years. Yesterday it was 1:30 pm and the parking lot was packed, I had to stop for lunch. They have about 18 seats at a counter that face the kitchen just feet away. You are literally eating in the kitchen. It's loud and crazy but the food is very good.... More

There isn't much new that I can add that other reviewers haven't commented upon before. The food is very fresh, and efficiently prepared. Atmosphere is classic Dania Beach. For the first time visitor it is a bit confusing, and until two chairs opened up at the bar, we stood there - ignored by the staff. Also, our wait person was... More

I was so hungry one night and I felt like some good chicken wings. Someone recommended Tarks. My goodness the wings tasted like they were fried in old and dirty oil. They were not done all the way and I just could not eat it. I was so disappointed in the way it was handled, like it was no big... More

Small place but the seafood was amazing! Ordered grouper sandwich and conch fritters and was so good! Will definitely be back! And the price is awesome for fresh seafood!

The wings here are out of this world! I've never had such delicious, meaty chicken wings before. The place doesn't look like much. It's been around for about 50 years. So that should tell you something!

Had steamed shrimp and key lime pie. It was great, good seasoning on shrimp and good crust on pie. You can see them make the food right there.

My wife and I were in the mood for wings and Tarks was rated #1 in Broward County... INCONCEIVABLE. It appears that the owners haven't invested a dime in to the place since they opened. There is a counter with enough seating for approximately 15-20 people. No indoor tables. There are approximately 4 picnic tables outside. The food preparation area... More

The lady taking our order was so rude I couldn't bring myself to give them my money so went elsewhere for food. Shame, as the menu looked good.
