We've been coming to this restaurant for seven years now, and it is never a disappointment. The food is great, the place is clean, the atmosphere is very welcoming, the service is excellent, the waiters are fast and attentive, huge parking lot in the back of the building... The restaurant itself is pretty big, too. About six years ago we... More

I love this place. Food is delicious and portions are big. Ive never had a meal I didnt love. Prices very reasonable. Staff is friendly. Bartender Frederick is one of a kind, a very nice, caring, classy guy. A few years ago, we needed a place to host guests after my father in law's funeral. Tessara's was able to accomodate... More

This was my third attempt to visit this restaurant. The last two were disastrous in terms of service in the bar area. I went there 2 days before Christmas after to get a couple appetizers in the bar area. I had stopped going to this restaurant for about a year and was giving them another chance. However, the service in... More

I took a client here for lunch. Not only was the food great; the service was wonderful. The server understood that I was there with a client and did not disturb our conversation. The food was great. I would highly recommend the French Onion Soup -- Deliciousness!

We go a few times a month and love the food. I personally love the prime rib. My 9 year old just gets spaghetti every time. My wife always gets a veggie meal. The service is alway friendly and the bar area usually has locals at it.

Last time we dined at Tessara's was over ten years ago, and though we live about ten minutes' slow walk from the place, our past negative experience prevented us from coming back for years. We finally decided to give the restaurant another chance, hoping that things tend to change in life. Not. Totally impersonal menu, bland food, both unattractively prepared... More

We go to Cracker Barrel for breakfast twice a month. The pumpkin pancakes are so delicious as are all pancake dishes. However, they have just changed their menu in regards to cereal selections. It seems you can only have Cheerios . The fruit choice is apples that if blindfolded you'd swear was apple pie apples from the can. Terrible. You... More

Celebrating my son-in-laws birthday was great, our waiter explained he was new but he was great. There were six of us and the meal was served in a timely fashion from appetizers to desserts. You could cut the prime rib with a fork and the portion size was enough to take home leftovers. Staff was warm and accommodating. Will do... More

An owner who accused us of reusing a coupon twice. Baited for a trap when we came in and at the end of our dinner added a $30 extra charge to the bill. Accused of being crooked and thieves. Out of control and in our faces. Never ever have we been so humiliated as by this person. We needed to... More

While the Tessara Restaurant parking lot suggested the restaurant was busy on a Thursday at lunchtime, once inside it appeared most of the cars were for attendees at a banquet-type lunch. The main dining room was quiet with only one other table occupied, but the meal that followed was very good indeed. My husband ordered their Minestrone Soup and his... More
