Great vibe in this place, which used to be a pharmacy. Bar in the front, with lots of seating in the back and in the space to the right. Extensive menu -- something for everyone. Was there on a Monday night, which was "half-price wine night." The service was friendly, the food was good and plentiful, and we had a... More

I ordered several times for lunch. The portions were huge and well worth the price. Oh! And they delivered to the financial district! My order arrived promptly and hot. Well worth the cost and tip!

Here for celebration drinks with some friends! They gave us a huge table in the bar area and didn't say a word when we got a little loud. The service was amazing, great bartender.

The biscuits and whatever sauce/gravy on them is to die for. We ate them so fast, and the server was happy to bring us more at no cost. My hash was simply amazing, and very big portion. The fruit tasted very fresh and the service was very good. Parking can be a bit of a challenge on Sunday for brunch... More

This restaurant was very good! It was packed so make sure you make a reservation before you go on a Friday or Saturday otherwise you may be waiting a long time. Food was good. Nothing too special. It was a little pricey! Overall a positive experience!

We took the whole family here for Easter Brunch, daughter is at VCU. The place had complimentary valet parking so we didn't have to hassle with finding a parking spot. The drinks were good, but we had to up the vodka to a call brand for the bloody marys because the house brand was Aristocrat. Our server forgot to put... More

Historic location - former drug store on Broad adds to charm. Menus for lunch was pages long. Our group ordered from multiple sections - soups - salads - sandwiches - and pizza - all were tasty. Good recommendation when looking for a lot of choices - all with good results. Recommended!

Tarrant's is a remodeled ice cream/soda shop, which makes for an appealing setting. We ordered the penne in vodka sauce w/shrimp and the blackened tuna. Both dishes were very good. My husband and almost always split our dinners. So, I did taste both. Our waiter, Todd, was friendly, efficient and helpful despite that fact that it was only his send... More

Make a reservation. This place is often packed, but not in an overwhelming way. Cool feel/decor, delicious food options.
