We stopped for lunch. Nice local place with friendly service. Our food was good. Only complaint was no heat or hot water in the bathroom (but it was clean).

First time here. Went with friends from American Legion Post 455. Great atmosphere, good portions, good selections, and good food. Will be back when in the area.

We went there as a group. The beer selection is of about a dozen beers. The food is alright. The staff is very nice. I would not go there again.

I had the fried pickles and blue cheese burger, it was wonderful! Fries were delicious and Arnold Palmer are good! Our waiter handled our large party no problem! This is a great local hangout!

Tara's is a Family run bar restaurant with a verity of great entrees for lunch and dinner. Parking is easy and live music on the weekends. Great place to go on short notice.

Tara's is great. We live around the corner and it's a goto place if you want a good meal at a fair price. The burgers are awesome and the chili is top notch. The staff is friendly and always has a smile. They do takeout...More

Small but food portions usually big. Great onion soup, sandwiches and dinners in a bar/pub setting. Music some nights.

This little gem is hidden away from a main road, on the Cookstown-'New Egypt Rd. All their food is top notch and the best selection of craft beers in the area. It's a family favorite of ours. You won't be sorry.

This a good local place with plenty of seating. I had fish and chips which were very good. Nice size portions. The air conditioning was on super low so it was actually cold in the restaurant in the summer time.
