The food is pretty darn good and extremely well priced. Tara's is a landmark of the Port Jefferson area. Lots of fun kind of a cheers of Long Island. Enjoy

I've passed Tara's many times but this was the first time I went in to eat. It is a very inexpensive, local "dive." The menu is on a blackboard by the bar or by the tables. You order at the bar and the waitress brings your food to the table. The prices are so low...a lobster for $10. I was told by my friend that I was with that the lobster used to come with a salad and fries, but now you have to order those separately. There are families, young people, older people, bikers and solo customers. I will definitely return.

This has GOT to be the only place in NYC that sells a cheeseburger for $1.50. Their HUGE roast beef sandwiches used to be $1.00, but are now $4.00 and still a huge bargain. This place looks like a biker bar, it's changed a bit from years ago, but they still congregate there. I've never had a problem there, everyone seems pretty friendly. If you are looking for down home atmosphere with inexpensive food (you can feed the whole family for under $20.00!) then this is the place for you,

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
