This is an ideal place for lunch. The hustle and bustle of the restaurant adds to the attractiveness of the environs. There are enough choices on the menu to satisfy most people.

We came here two times and lived the food and the music they played. They have an extensive bar that we did not sample. The servers were friendly and efficient both times.

Tarrant's remains a very good place. The menu is varied and interesting. I had a very hard time choosing what to order. The staff is knowledgeable and able.

Convenient to find on our travels on I05 as we pass through Richmond. Menu offers a nice variety of items to enjoy with both sandwiches as well as entrees that are well prepared. We like the variety of fish offered in particular.

The back booth was nice and service great. The garlic bread was a nice touch soaked with butter. The bacon pizza was a bit too greasy and too many onions on it it for my taste. The lunch was nice and served pretty fast. Parking is a mess at this place several blocks away.

Went at 8 am for breakfast. The menue is not extensive but it covers all the bases. Cloth napkins good music and delicious meal. The coffee was good but would have tried the cappuchino if we had seen it first. O j was fresh. A nice upscale start to the day!
