My old hunting buddy of 42 years and myself are finally back in Dallas County. We've hunted (Bridgeport Park, East Bank, West Bank - Corp of Engineers Land in Camden), Pleasant Hill, Minter, Tyler, Lowndes Co WMA, and Brookie Kings old place beside the Riverdale Papermill. We recently got a small hunting lease within 6 miles of the Tally-Ho. While making some trips to Selma to eat we noticed the Tally-Ho sign on County Road 37. We were not sure what it was at first, but we did know it was getting harder to find a place to eat in Selma. I just Googled TALLY HO SELMA, AL and pulled up the menu and history of the Tally-Ho. I'm chomping at the bit to go there and start experincing what I expect to be some of the finest food ever while on a hunting trip. Should be by there within the next week. Will post actual results on next review. For now I must give a 5 just to be fair. Stay Tuned...
Yes, I asked the owner, Bob Kelley, to show me his kitchen. I have live and travelled all over the world and sometimes you go into the kitchen so see what's cooking because sometimes you just don't know what the words for goat head and chicken are and I have never yet ordered the goat head. I had no problem understanding the escargot or the Tally Ho's menu and they do a fabulous escargot with garlic butter, sour cream and chives, uumm. Their stakes may not be Morton's 28 day aged but they are surely good enough that you don't know the difference. Who da thunk that in Selma, Alabama, a thriving metopolis of maybe 25,000 or so, that one would find a restaurant that serves a blackend Snapper that can stand up to Chef K'Paul's in N'Orleans but then the Tally HO adds shrimp and Hollandais sauce on top of it. Thas some good eatin' it is!
But I go for the Crab Claws and an imported beer in the bar. It's not my fault that I usually have to stay for dinner too. Enjoy yourselves, I have!

A rustic, logbuilding in a wooded setting, the Tally Ho offers a dining experience with unique surroundings featuring 2 formal dining areas and a eat in bar.
One an area contains partitioned areas of dark heavy wooden beams with a fireplace for intimate dining. The second area though even as charming is not quite as intimate.
Food is also served in the bar which has a large screen TV along with a smaller TV near the bar and fireplace. Service is just as good with a friendlier more relaxed atmosphere. Even though a bar area, it is quite, so you may have a normal conversation and enjoy the company you are with.
The owner quite often will be in the resturaunt greeting and visiting with his diners.
This is my and my husband's favorite restaurant in Selma.
