Large menu and indoor and outdoor seating. The outside seating expanded greatly during covid taking space in the walkway throughout the mall area. We all got different entrees and they were all very good. Service was okay.

In the area, this a must for dinner. The food and service were outstanding. This is one of those 'can't miss" places!

Nicely renovated but food was way disappointing. Crab cakes were mediocre; no lump meat & “generous” filler -definitely NOT a real, traditional MD Crab cake. Soft shells were served on dry white toast w a side of tartar sauce- blah. Fries were the best thing....Expensive. Split our party between 2 tables despite a reservation, a half-empty restaurant and the availability of a private room. No flexibility.More

Outstanding experience! Sat in the covered outdoor patio because of COVID. It was very well heated and comfortable. The staff was very accommodating and pleasant. The food was very good and the service was wonderful! Don’t miss the lemon pepper Parmesan chicken wings. Overall a...wonderful experience. The interior is really lovely as well. We will definitely go back!More

Sat in the bar area at a hightop table, busy Tuesday night created a great atmosphere. Food was excellent, my wife had the filet and it was delicious, I had the Seafood Cobb, shrimp and crab were fresh and seasoned well. The wait staff was...attentive and prompt. Will go back again.More

Had a lovely dinner last night at Tarks, celebrating a birthday and an anniversary. They brought glasses of procecco at the beginning for the anniversary couple and a dish of ice cream w Chocoate sauce and a Happy Birthday sign for the birthday guy at...dessert. Nice!! Our waitress was perfect ( wish I could recal her name! Long black braided hair, tall and beautiful). The food was all very good, especially the caesar salad, the fried calamari, and the really scrumptious perfectly cooked and beautifully plated rockfish with coconut rice, spinach, fried plantains, and grilled pineapple. Divine!! Its great that they offer a variety of menu options at a variety of price points!! You can enjoy eating here without spending a fortune. So happy to be able to sit outdoors in comfort with the heater nearby. Host was very pleasant and accommodating about moving us from originally assigned high top to a standard height table. Ill have to remember to specify table height for my next reservation. Be sure to call ahead, they book up fast!! We will be back again soon! Thank you Tarks!!More

The experience here is very mediocre. The food is okay, but nothing special and definitely over priced. Please save your money and time. There are so many better options in the area.

Six of us had a delicious diner on the patio. The waitress was very pleasant and everyone enjoyed the food. We especially appreciated the octopus appetizer and the soft shell crabs. Main dishes are large. I also liked that the bill was handled right at...the table with a small calculating machine.More

Delightful restaurant with fine food especially the seafood and crabs, charming atmosphere indoors and outdoors on their patio. Also fine service without being intrusive. Easy parking and on the “Lutherville “ Hopkins Medical” campus. Will definitely be back.

My wife and I visited Tark’s on 6/26/21. The service was good. The food was good. The waitress was polite and helpful. But because of a question that the waitress said she could not address, that had to do with the quantity of shrimp salad...on a sandwich, she called Peter, the manager, to our table. Up until that time everything was fine and pleasant, even though we had that question, until Peter showed up. After hearing our question Peter said that he could not resolve the problem, that’s the way it is, got very upset because I persisted, and eventually asked us to leave and said that we were not welcome back again. All because I questioned why there were only 2 shrimp on 1/2 of my wife’s shrimp salad sandwich.More
