Tara Inn Irish Pub & Restaurant


Ratings and reviews

#2,999 of 5,251 Restaurants in Toronto

Location and contact

Since 1988, family run pub & restaurant with a broad menu covering European, and North American tastes. With three levels in the restaurant for seating, you'll feel the warm ambience surrounded by oak and brass decor. Whether seated in the dining room, seated by the fire, or snugged down in the pub area, the feeling of being back on the Emerald Isle will be with you. Live sports on the screens, live music on weekends, and a spacious patio in the summer. Come, share a taste of Ireland in Scarborough.

We were in on St Patty’s day and the round brunette woman behind the bar was extremely rude and unwelcoming! She actually yelled at us about using the debit machine and said we needed to get cash because it was to busy! Great customer service...More

The Tara Inn has very good attentive service and a good menu of pub food. They have good Irish and/or folk music on Sundays from 4 pm to 7 pm. There is some limited space available for dancing. Good atmosphere.

Visited Tara Inn for lunch. First time there. I understand now why it was empty. If wait staff had smiled even once or even pretended to be friendly it would have helped the experience. Service was acceptable, but made to feel we were a bother...More

I've been to Tara Inn many times and the food is always excellent, at very reasonable prices. I've not done "bar" or "entertainment" events here, but the lunch and dinner menus are always top notch. Parking is plentiful and free, and during patio season this...More

Have to say. The Tara Inn has spoiled us. Wherever we go wings are never as good as the ones at The Tara. Also service always amazing.

Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a
district heavily influenced by immigration. With a
number of low-rent shopping and dining options making
it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one
of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise
green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for
bargains and discounts. It also draws in
photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous
