Freshest shrimps, clams and crab at cheapest price

Simple take-out / pub-like dinerwhere the locals go. Crowded. Excellent seafood at great prices. Highly recommended.

A local friend suggested that we try this restaurant. Our first impression was that it's dirty, small, smells bad, greasy... Even though, we decided to try the food anyways. We where actually impressed! The food was good. The prices are amazing. It's a place where you take out or eat with your eyes closed and don't look around cause you... More

If you go here with wide eyes wide open, you will not be disappointed. Nothing fancy, nothing fast, and totally local. I had salad that was adequate and very tasty. I had wings, and I had an ice cold beer. This is not fine dining, and everything tastes great.

This place is a hole-in-the-wall. Nothing fancy and it is frequented by both tourists and locals. We had the conch salad, 3 dozen oysters (yummy!), and 2 orders of their terminator hot chicken wings. We loved the food and the customer service was pretty good. Prices are cheap!

Tarks is definitely a locals restaurant that is a must see for tourists as well. There is seating outside as well as a bar/counter inside. Good luck on finding a seat. Talking to the patrons there, it was obvious that any selection on the menu was excellent.

Stayed locally before flying home to Ohio. Saw the great reviews on TripAdvisor so wanted to give it a try. Certainly glad we did as it was fantastic. We had the alligator tail dinner and seafood-crab legs, shrimp and claims with a pitcher of beer. Wonderful key lime pie for dessert. My mouth is watering now...Sat outside as inside was... More

As soon as you walk into tarks you feel at home. You sit at a bar that is open to the kitchen it was awesome to have the interaction of the kitchen staff. We started with the conch fritters. They were to die for. We also had a dozen oysters. They were not only huge but very fresh and delicious.... More

My family ate at Tark's 7 years ago while on vacation in the Ft. Lauderdale area. We loved it, and vowed to return someday. My husband and finally came back to vacation in the area in July 2015 and ate there twice. Nothing had changed. The seafood is still fresh, absolutely delicious, and relatively inexpensive, especially for the portion size.... More

The chicken wings are very meaty, so even the small 10 piece order was too much for me. Bring a friend or get a to go box. There's not much seating at Tarks, inside or out. I prefer sitting outside, inside is a little too cozy for me. If the wait person doesn't come outside often, you might have to... More

Definitely stands up to the definition of a Dive. The seafood is excellent , just not my kind of place. Counter service, chaotic, loud. Sometimes it's better to not see the people that are preparing your food.
