We had the BEST brunch experience here. Their bloody Mary bar is amazing. I have never seen so many items offered on a bloody Mary bar! The service is great, and the menu has something for everyone!

We've had several other things too. The portions are just right and so tasty. We got crab on something and was surprised to see how much they put on it. Most... More

Dined here with my mom as an early birthday dinner. Right away it was fairly clear that service is geared more towards local "dignitaries" and regulars. Since we did not fit these categories, service was indifferent at best. I ordered seafood gratin while Mom got crab cakes. Seafood gratin was decent but far from spectacular -- had a strange grainy... More

I can' t tell you how disappointed I am with your experience. This is not a typical review and we do not approve of the lack in service or sub-par food preparation. I truly hope you do come again and would be happy to make this right for you. Tamara Wintzell More

Restaurant was very busy as this was Friday during Art Fair. We were still able to be seated within 30 minutes. Hostess was very nice and handled large crowds very calmly and cordially. Waitress was very attentive and food came out pretty quickly even with crowd. Club sandwich was good although bread got a little soggy before finished. The clam... More

Tamara's is typical coastal restaurant atmosphere and food, but quieter than most. The food was good as was the service.

Went this past Saturday night for dinner. Only 5 other tables occupied in the restaurant- that should have been our first clue to run. Waited almost 15 minutes for a server to arrive at our table to take drink orders. He left one lunch menu and two dinner menus which caused confusion. Ordered drinks, once the menus were straightened out,... More

While visiting Point Clear, AL, we had dinner at Tamara's the night of the Super Bowl, so it wasn't very crowded. The restaurant did have TV's in the bar area for those interested in watching the game. We were pleasantly surprised to find gluten free crab cakes on the menu. We do not have sensitivity to gluten, just choose to... More
