Tarpy's Roadhouse Restaurant Review

: Tarpy's is a landmark restaurant featuring a sophisticated, casual vibe and a bar boasting a creative cocktail menu inspired by freshly picked goods from the on-site garden. Chef Todd Fisher's menu ranges from light bites to comfort food. Start with a small plate, perhaps the griddled polenta with savory mushrooms or the playful shrimp and grits. Traditionalists can go straight for the classic meatloaf --- elevated roadhouse fare here is satisfying. Chocolate peanut butter mousse is a locals' favorite, and with good reason; refreshing house sorbets make it just as difficult to put the spoon down. Wine-Down Wednesdays pair prix-fixe menus with offerings from different wineries each week.
