I have been to Tarpy's before and really enjoyed it. The atmosphere is great especially if it is a nice evening and you can sit outside. Because it was cool, we were seated inside. We ordered cocktails and they took forever to be brought to...More

This is a beautiful location. We had a private dinner party here (rehearsal dinner for wedding), and everything was fantastic. Food, service, appearance.

Friends recommended this place and to be honest, when I heard the name, I was not really excited to go. It sounded like a dive. I was so wrong. This place is amazing. It has a great feel and the food was so good! We...More

Went to Tarpys for the first time last night for dinner. Easy reservations on OpenTable, and we got our requested area (on the heated patio). The heat lamps weren't outrageously strong but good enough to fight off the chill. Fantastic whiskey selection (whiskey flights!) as...More

It was pretty casual. Most people were in collared shirts etc, but golf shirts and shorts for men during lunch is ok. I would imagine dinner would be a bit more dressy than that, but still not formal.
