The food is very good (Minus the Pecan Grouper, which wouldn’t be worth eating if it were $10) - the paella and Tabasco marinated Snapper, however, were fantastic . . . BUT The service mediocre at best. The wait staff was less than helpful and...More

'It was always just a little knock about place.' Closing lines from Fried Green Tomatoes. Speaking of friend green tomatoes, we tried them at Tamara's. Roasted Red pepper sauce really compliments this old Southern classic. Eclectic little area of town. Great stop. Great service!

Overpriced for mediocre food - my paella was so spicy couldn't even taste the seafood. Seemed to be a waste of fresh seafood. Won't be back.

When I'm dropping $28 for a plate of food, I'm anticipating at least something to stand out. Tried some sort of crusted/fried grouper with mashed potato's and a mixed veggie side. I've had better haddock meals at roadside diner's for $8. Service was a "I'm...More
