Good little seafood stop! Had the grouper sandwich for dinner and it was excellent. I noticed a lot of people eating oysters so they must be good. Local crowd enjoying beer and seafood and each other. The place is small so you may have to wait a few minutes to sit but worth it. Prices are very fair.

I've a native of South Fl and have heard about Tarks but never had been there. I went today and can say I haven't been missing anything all these years. It's small beyond belief and we ate outside- that doesn't really bother me. The smell of garbage and flies all over my food was gross and a huge turn off-... More

This place has reasonable pricing and the food is good. Daily specials are well priced. We went on Thursday when 10 Oysters were $6.50. Good price, but the oysters were not the best. I also had the wings also a great price -- very good size and also very reasonable. The Grouper sandwich was a popular choice and also looked... More

The counter wraps around the small kitchen that contains a staff filled with characters that bark at the customers; the patrons are characters as well! What a side show. All make for a memorable experience with inexpensive wings, beer and seafood. I love this place!

Food was good...The BBQ shrimp and Grilled Mahi sandwich were tasty...gator bites rubbery. Inside this small place there is only counter space to eat..outside a few table. So expect to wait for parking...a table...and a disorganized staff that doesnt readily pay attention to you. While they serve tons of oysters daily - its is truly your seafood hole in the... More

Best meal I've had in years was here at a picnic table outside. Oysters, wings, fries, and conch fritters. Finished off with 2 pitchers of beer. Had to fight through folks on the inside to order and pay but it was worth every minute. Great service. Try the wings "extra crispy" with sauce on the side. We had BBQ and... More

I don't know why others don't like it--it should be on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. It's a tiny hole-in-the-wall, and the food is fantastic. Best wings I've ever had. Crispy and fresh. Our service was great. I can see why if you go later it's so busy you don't get served quickly, but we got there early, ate at the... More

Tark's was packed at the counter & all the tables were full when we got there at 8:45 on a Sat. night. Once we got a menu from the waitress at the counter, we sat to the side & got a drink order fairly fast. The waitress kept checking on us & although they are busy, they took good care... More
