Pros-beautiful historic building, romantic, best crab cakes I had while visiting the beach. Cons-waitress wasn't friendly or helpful, she made no recommendation or suggestions, never offered us any alcohol, not much to choose from on the menu, tomato/basil appetizer was awful!!!

Everything I eat here when we visit is sublime. Tamara's deserves a 5 star rating. We love the Black Bean Soup. Get it every time. The Creole Pasta, yum. The Grouper Sandwich is the best in the region. Just came back for Tres Leches Cake....More
