Another Anniversary dinner # 34 ..It becoming a habit ! and worth the drive .. We had a Great time with Nick our waiter,He was fabulous ! The Food was extra special ! I had the special of Filet Mignon in a red wine reduction,which I thought it was a bit pricey,until it came ! ( it was huge )Very flavorful,the best I had ever had ! Topped off with a bottle of Silver Oak 08 Cab ! Thought I died and went to Heaven ! Everything was Great ! had reservations, walked right in through the crowd and seated,Nick immediately uncorked the wine and waited on us non stop ..don't remember asking for anything... even bought Us desert..for our Anniversary ! How can You top that ? corkage was a little steep,but way better than purchasing there .. (08 SO cab) Anniversary # 35 = Tarpys Roadhouse 1st choice ! It was a very special evening !

“Great Family Reunion!”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

We had a wonderful family dinner here for 10 people. This is a favorite for our Carmel family but a first for us. Excellent specials; nobody was disappointed with their food. Very nice atmosphere and every restaurant should have a Peggy! A really nice night out.

“College girls”
Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

I was pleasantly surprised that as busy as it looked we were able to be seated without a reservation immediately. Our server Wendi was informative and helpful without hovering. Enjoyed our dinners on both occasions.

“Fantastic Brunch - and Dog-friendly”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

Tarpy's has been a favorite for years as we're always on the lookout for great places that also allow dogs at their outdoor seating. Tarpy's has an excellent menu (including the Sunday brunch menu, which we were ordering off of), wonderful staff and is very dog friendly – they even had a menu for dogs to order off of (ours had the grilled chicken breast with rice and steamed veggies). We made reservations for an outdoor brunch table in a corner so we could corral the dog (it would turn out to be only his second visit to a crowded restaurant, but he did fine), and they put us in a great spot. It was a little chilly that day, but they turned on the heater for us so outside was perfect.

My wife and I, along with our friends, had an excellent brunch – carmel pecan waffles, Tarpy's Nor-Cal omelette, some grilled ham, crab cakes, and blueberry pancakes - and of course, a coffee and Baileys to start off the meal.

Highly recommended for both lunch and dinner (and don't overlook their meat loaf), dog or no dog.

“Great place, wonderful service”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Got there with a friend who already knew the place, and it was great. As a vegetarian I asked for a dish change and Alfredo the waiter did more than I could expect to make me get the best entree in the house with vegetarian twist. Will come again for sure in my next visit!
