Great lunch spot

Have eaten here a hundred times. It's a favorite lunch spot for businesses downtown. The fresh fish is always a winner. My favorite is the tuna burger. It rocks.

Cute, noisy pub. Limited menu. Nice outside dining area. Good, friendly service. The burgers are quite good, especially on the Challah bun. Reasonably priced. Easy walk to the Broward theatre or the science museum or IMAX.

It's been a long time since the hubby and I ventured into the local nightclub district on Himmarshee here in Ft. Lauderdale. Last night some friends dropped by about dinner time and invited us to join them at Tarpon Bend restaurant. It's been an anchor for the area for years. Monday nights are $5 burger nights and 2/1 happy hour... More

Visited on Monday when they have $5 burger night and 2 for 1 drinks. Awesome burger probably a 3/4 pounder. Place was packed but didn't have to wait too long. Service was excellent despite the huge crowd. A must visit especially on Mondays

My husband and I went to Tarpon Bend on a Monday night to watch the college national championship game. They have many tv's, including a huge one. We were happily surprised at the $5 cheeseburger with fries. It came with your choice of four different cheeses and was excellent. The $5 price is a special every Monday. In addition their... More

Came here for Sunday brunch with a big group. We had unlimited mimosas or screwdrivers. I ordered florentine eggs Benedict which was served in a skillet over potatoes and quartered English muffin - was pretty good for $13. Others at the table had captain crunch French toast, crab cake eggs Benedict, chicken and waffles. . . Everything looked good. Service... More

I met up with an old friend for dinner here a few weeks ago. The restaurant is in a nice, walkable downtown area. There is limited street parking but several paid garages available to park in. We shared a calamari appetizer, which was delicious and I got one of their daily specials, a Key West Shrimp Sandwich which was thoroughly... More

Visited Tarpon Bend with a big family group. The service is fast and friendly. I had the Seared yellow-fin tuna salad. To die for! The only reason I didn't give the place 5 stars is the noise level. Difficult for cross table conversation.

Cool atmosphere, very nice service, sidewalk dining and good food make this a winner. I agree with another reviewer that one shouldn't eat upstairs, however on a nice warm evening, nothing better than the sidewalk al fresco option

On numerous occasions I have been here at lunch time and it is always busy. If you are dining with a group of people I would suggest making a reservation. If they ever put you at a table upstairs I would decline and wait for a table on the main floor or outside depending on the weather. The service is... More
