Background on Tarpy's Roadhouse:
Tarpy's Roadhouse is pure and simple. Relax in this 1917 Roadhouse and enjoy a cornucopia of diverse tastes and feasts! The welcoming dining room has stylish, rustic décor and on sunny afternoons, patrons can relax on the outdoor patio, sip tasty libations and enjoy Tarpy's delicious food.
Come nightfall, try the Dijon-crusted lamb tenderloin while enjoying a selection from the full bar or extensive wine list. Tarpy's has a great selection of appetizers, salads and sandwiches and the fresh, sustainable fish and seafood are second to none. That being said, the good ol' meat 'n' potato mainstays are what Tarpy's does best. Imagine prime steaks, thick pork chops and wild game, sizzling and fresh off the wood-fired grill. Lastly, don't miss the meatloaf and roasted garlic whipped potatoes!
