The oldest Irish Pub in Rhody. Has a deck w/ great ocean views...but the fun is inside. You go to hear the live music, tip a few and be treated by the smiles of the owner Tara, an Irish lass & the pub's former bartender . But, don't forget the food...Excellent corned beff & cabbage esp on St Paddy's. Parking... More

We enjoy having breakfast at Tara's. Their food is very good and on a nice day, you can eat outside and enjoy views of the ocean. My favorite dish is their corned beef omelet - it's a special but they can usually make it if you ask. They also have a good selection of Bloody Mary's to go with breakfast.

First night on Matunuck Point we were looking to soak up some of that great beach feel. Tara's was just the perfect casual atmosphere we were looking for! We were seated outdoors on an upper porch overlooking the ocean - just doesn't get any better! Our server was excellent. We enjoyed some delicious clam chowder and then shared some pub... More

Always a great place to hang out for a couple drinks and listen to fun music. Not a lot of seating so be prepared to stand, though two days in a row we got lucky.

I have been to Tara's on two occasions, once in Fall in the pub section, and once in the Summer on the outside deck area. Both times we enjoyed good food & good music with good people. Very much worth a visit...or several, whenever in the area.

I guess I missed how Tara's introduced a whole Pub Style menu 8 years ago at this local hot spot. That's what happens when motherhood and a full time job converge. Tara's is a great spot for a burger and a beer seaside. The crowd feels a little older or mellower than the Ocean Mist and I enjoyed having a... More

Tara's is popular as an Irish Pub/Beach Bar. But, it is special for breakfast on the upper deck on summer weekends. It has a large breakfast menu (look for the specials) - including a full Irish breakfast and a variety of other favorites - all very good quality and quantity. And the service is always friendly and efficient. The view... More

We visited this to sit on the deck for dinner because it was within walking distance from our hotel after a drive. The deck has an ocean view and the servers were friendly and efficient. The menu has a variety. The food was average, nothing special.

I enjoyed an early dinner at Tara's. Our party of four elected to eat on the top deck. The view is unparalleled, you can't see any beach, only water, your that close. At high tide I'd almost be afraid of being washed away! It was rather windy but still sunny. The wait staff moved around an umbrella to shield us... More
