I've been coming to Tara's for years and it never disappoints. The food is always great, served hot and timely alongside a nice frosty beer. Works for me,

Essentially a bar with food on Main Street in Port Jefferson. The food is okay - but average. Can get very crowded but always a pleasant boisterous crowd.

Good cheap food, inexpensive drinks and a mix of clientele. Can be loud, but can be put with. At time it may be hard to find a seat, but when you do, the "menu" is written on paper plates and tacked to the wall. Once...More
