This local, off the beaten path, gem of a restaurant has it all. Great food, southern charm, reasonable prices and very personable customer service. Highly recommended but plan ahead to avoid long lines. (All the locals know this place)

A group of 14 with 10 minutes notice given and was accommodated with cheer. The crawfish boil was bountiful and perfectly seasoned. Local authentic feel. Quality and atmosphere comparable to The Shed BBQ

Stopped by for lunch to try some place different and were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service was great. The fried shrimp salad was great as was the shrimp poboy. Don't miss it.

Tarantos features grilled options as well. During our visit we ordered the shrimp poboy and a side of shrimp and crawfish both had light breading full of flavor.Hope this helps enjoy!
