How often do you get to feed fish to giant Tarpons? it's the real deal, up close and personal. The rest of the place is a tourist trap. But parking is easy and feeding the Tarpon is cheap and lots of fun. Feed the fish and get out.

It is a tradition for many to stop into this place, seemingly frozen in time, and grab some fish to feed to the tarpon. It is a tad touristy, sure, but hey... you are in the Keys! In addition to the fun of the big splashes as the tarpon chow down on the fish bits, there is also a lot... More

Had a good time fishing even though the fish weren't biting too well for us. Captain and crew were very nice and attentive. Hard core fishermen seem to take the stern spots. Don't get in their way.

What a cool place! You don't expect it to be as great as it is. You walk past little colorful souvenir pallet stands, past the bar that has stapled dollars all over it, and sit at tables that are like picnic tables. We had no idea what a perfect location it was until we glanced up from the table to... More

Robbie's has something for everyone. A restaurant with fresh seafood, boat rental, kayaks, shopping and tarpons to feed. We rented kayaks and spent the day visiting nearby state parks Indian Key and Lignumvitae Key. We will definitely visit Robbie's again when we return to the Florida Keys

Robbie's is a pretty cool place to stop and see while traveling along the Overseas Highway. You will find plenty of gift and souvenir stands throughout the property. Great fun for the entire family and a restaurant with good food. The Tarpon feeding out back is probably the most popular and busiest attraction. For just a few bucks, you get... More

Islamorada and the neighboring areas are, generally, very laid back and relaxing ... the anti-theme park and Robbie's offers a great Florida Keys experience. It has good fresh sea food, local shops, water sports/attractions. I've been to Robbie's a numerous times and never tire of the visit, I treasure the memories. Stay an hour or three, you will enjoy.

This was totally amazing. Loved feeding the tarpon which were 3-4 feet in length. They ate right out of our hands. It was a little scary at first but they do not bite. Definitely worth the trip!

We paid the 1$ admission fee and then bought a 3$ bucket of fish. Although the tarpons weren't that hungry (we came early evening), some did eat the fish. The tarpons would jump out of the water, and was very entertaining as well as amazing to watch. Seeing pelicans up close was also interesting. There was a hose to wash... More
