First time here. Traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner was very good. Food could have been served a bit warmer, but turkey breast meat and sweet potatoes with candied nuts were especially good. Green beans and mashed potatoes were above average. Portion size was very large and our server was very professional. The restaurant is definitely worth a visit.

They are low on staff which was evident only by the big “now hiring” signs on the entrance doors and the long wait to be seated. However, once seated, our server was attentive, our food was excellent, and we could not tell they were short staffed at all!

I’m new to the area, this place came highly recommended, and did not disappoint!

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch/brunch. We were seated on the enclosed patio which had tables separated a good distance (they were not as distanced inside). Food, drinks and server were outstanding.

They seated us on the “outdoor “ section which I found cold and seats uncomfortable. Not the ambiance we were looking for or had previously experienced. Our waiter was clearly not comfortable and probably new. However given current hiring issues, we can understand and he will probably grow to be very good- he was trying. Food did not disappoint.

When I made a reservation, I said we would be there to celebrate my husband’s birthday. They brought a plate with a candle and a happy birthday message and a big plate of ice cream fudge brownie. The service was friendly and perfect, food was just excellent in quality and portion-wise. No room for any complaints or even a request for an improvement at all. We were visiting our son, but this place will be our regular distinatiin every time we visit him in the future.

Tarrants West used to be so good, but now it's not. Everything we had was sub par, steak was under cooked and then came back over cooked. Cesar salad has changed, bread was not fully cooked. We Will not go back

Food was ok. It was cooked well and of average quality but was way under seasoned. Despite a lot of hype, the chicken and waffles were mediocre and the sauce unimpressive. Not bad, but not great. The only truly negative thing is how overpriced it is for what you get.

Great dinner and even better service. Can't wait to return. Small critique, the she crab bisque had an extremely strong flavor of liquor. For the cost I'd want it to be perfect. The filet in the surf and turf wasn't the freshest piece of meat but overall it was a really great experience and we plan on returning to try more menu items. The grilled shrimp add on was the tastiest shrimp I've ever had and the apple walnut cake and ice cream were amazing.

Not impressed. Food was very good. Service was average at best. It was homecoming so half the restaurant was full of teenagers. We ate outside on a tiny patio in the dark. It was our 26th anniversary and we made a reservation. They wanted to sit us next to a table with 20 kids. No thanks...we won't go back.

Food and service were excellent. The seating arrangement and tables are too close in some areas. Our table for two was sooo close and a wedding party was seated next to us in such close proximity we felt we were part of their group— not good.

I want to have something different for Brunch but didn’t want to cook myself. I know that Tarrant’s serves brunch on Sunday so I visited the restaurant. I had Waffles and bacon and the waffles were very delicious. The service was outstanding and the mood was great. You are in and out and satisfied with the food. I was content well into the mid afternoon hours. Great place for brunch and a great place to eat with friend and family. I would recommend you try them for brunch.

Our food was delicious on site- chicken quesadilla appetizer,seafood cannelloni flavor was fabulous but husband felt portion was very small. Penne ala vodka was really flavored well and portion was great! Only complaint - shrimp and grits to go bone to someone who couldn’t make it out- didn’t look like grits- she said it tasted out of box grainy like rice and had awful flavor, supposed to be bacon and cheese, not recognizable. We considered maybe we got the wrong dish? Dessert was flourless chocolate cake, never had one crumble apart before, usually smooth and rich, this wasn’t bad, just very different from what we expected. Server was super!

Service was top-notch, Like everywhere else, our server had too too many tables - he did his best. Four of ate - the Chicken parmesan sub was quite tasty; the wings were good, not great and a pricey; salad was the right size and good; and the green fried tomato cheese sandwich was a hit.
