Tarrant's is a convenient spot for dinner before a show at the November Theater. Valet parking, great food (my scallops & risotto was outstanding), comfortable seating and a low noise level made for a lovely evening.

Happy Hour is fun here. Valet parking is great! Staff is personable, accommodating and knowledgeable about the food they serve.The food and prices at Happy Hour are a win-win! I do highly recommend Tarrant's on Broad. This is my go-to-place with friends.

Went for Mother's Day. Have a nice omelet with a mammosa. The omelet was a Cheese omelet . There's a bar for your pleasure and drinks you would like.

We went for dinner without a reservation and were pleasantly surprised. The She-Crab soup was the best I'd had in the area. We had several 'foodie' type appetizers and entrees. All were fresh, prepared well and the prices are very reasonable. We loved the decor...More

Yes, actually they do. There is a dining private area in the back of the Broad Street restaurant. I believe that the Three Chopt Road location has private dining areas.
