A whole lobster for $10... on a paper plate. Great fun.

Menu is posted on board and some specials written on paper plates, tacked to wall. No written menu.

Lots of chicken, fish, shell fish, burgers

Large bar area

Good service.

Went down hill quickly. Waitresses are rude. Food quality has dropped very low. Will never grace this place with my presence again

I have been going to Tara Inn for a long time. Every time I visit Port Jeff, I have to stop in there. It's my slice of returning home. While I do see some changes it is still the same old place to me. There is nothing fancy about the place at all but it just has the home town feel to it. Food is good quality and cheap. The menu is on the wall and you order at the bar. My burger and soup were good. Also got the lobster because why not at such a low price. It is a good place to meet up with some friends and grab a beer. Bathroom could be cleaner and remolded. All in all though it is good for what it is with great food value.

If you want food cooked in a kitchen you'd rather not see, use a bathroom that's no better than an outhouse and drink till you fall down then this is the place. There is a pool table. Many people outside smoking.

Tara Inn 1519 Main St, Port Jefferson, NY 11777-2238 is a family long time local bar and grill . the Food quality is amazing/ very inexpensive.The atmosphere is very informal from blue collar clientele to your most highly paid professional- in other words you will never feel out of place. Weekly/daily specials and Tara's Inn definitely gives back to it's surrounding community with charitable support & donations. Dress is casual and is a terrific place to meet up with friends and family to enjoy lunch/dinner/drinks and kick back. Highly recommend - Lively atmosphere.
