Very good $5 Burger on Monday nights

We stopped in to kill some time before dinner elsewhere and a movie later, but decided to stay for $5 burgers once we saw how nice the place was with friendly staff. Glad we stopped in, because there are only 2 other restaurants I've been to that serve a better burger and those place are phenomenal.

Our family loves going to Tarpon Bend for the wahoo sandwich. It's one of the few restaurants that serve it. Also, they have delicious, juicy $5 burgers on Monday night with skinny fries.

We went to Tarpon Bend with friends for Sunday Brunch and had a nice meal. Free mimosas for women, which was nice. The bloody marys were delicious. The food was good, we all enjoyed our meal. Not the most spectacular but a fun place we will definitely visit again.

This place was in a cool spot of town, we just walked off the street and got 2 for 1 drinks from a cool bartender. Waitress was nice too. Food was very good and prices were average. DO IT!

The Sunday brunch crowd was already seated and dining when I arrived for lunch. On Sunday this restaurant opens early, at 10 AM, instead of the usual 11:30 AM, to accommodate the brunch offering. I glanced at the menu. Brunch seemed to mean breakfast. And indeed the diners seated on the sidewalk beneath umbrellas on this very warm morning were... More

The full name of this restaurant is Tarpon Bend Food and Tackle. Ever since our first trip to Florida, we have been in search of the world's greatest Grouper sandwich. We had our first at the now defunct Legal Seafood in Fort Lauderdale. We were perusing the menu and our waitress said, "Try the Groupa [sic], you'll love it." She... More

Really enjoyed our visit to this off Las Olas gem. While the Shrimp and Grits were not as good as other places I have ordered the dish at, that is not to say they were bad. Service was typical for south Florida but that too is not a bad thing necessarily. It felt good to not be rushed while eating.... More

I came for Happy Hour, the idea being to hop onto a stool at the bar and have something to eat while downing a draft pint of craft beer. My plans were thwarted when I walked in. The bar area was packed, every stool taken, with beer drinkers standing around quaffing their thirst. And the noise! What a racket. The... More
