Tamara's is typical coastal restaurant atmosphere and food, but quieter than most. The food was good as was the service.

Went this past Saturday night for dinner. Only 5 other tables occupied in the restaurant- that should have been our first clue to run. Waited almost 15 minutes for a server to arrive at our table to take drink orders. He left one lunch menu and two dinner menus which caused confusion. Ordered drinks, once the menus were straightened out,... More

While visiting Point Clear, AL, we had dinner at Tamara's the night of the Super Bowl, so it wasn't very crowded. The restaurant did have TV's in the bar area for those interested in watching the game. We were pleasantly surprised to find gluten free crab cakes on the menu. We do not have sensitivity to gluten, just choose to... More

Met for small plates and drinks was delicious and the service prompt and professional. The decor and ambiance was also inviting. We will go back for a full meal.

Disappointed. The lunch menu is basically build your own sandwich for 9.95 with additional charges for some toppings. I had a blackened Mahi on kaiser roll. Large piece of Mahi mildly blackened. Hubby had your basic burger. We each had a cup of gumbo. One ice tea and one water. Food was nothing spectacular. Bill was 33.14. We arrived around... More

An explosion of flavor from the appetizers through dessert. Friendly warm staff greet you and are attentive while not overbearing. Best overall meal we have had in a long time...worth every penny. Fried avocado appetizer with a panko crust was fantastic. Every choice had a unique flavor.

We visited Tamara’s for lunch on a Fall Saturday. It’s a charming restaurant in downtown Fairhope, casual but comfortable, with both a bar and main seating area. Its menu offers a large variety of options that should please most anyone. Our server was both efficient and very knowledgeable about the menu. I chose the gumbo for starters, and it was... More
