This salad is one of my favorite menu items here. It's always delicious, a lovely blend of ingredients. I got here before the crowd, which can get noisy for lunch on some days. Service was very good. I sat inside, shunning sidewalk dining because of impending rain.

Came with my staff to have a happy hour holiday, about 14 of us. Waiter told us to sit in two tables, we order drinks only to find out that the table was reserved and did not have any reservation signs. All this after we had ordered drinks and had to pay. We were told to get up from the... More

Came here to eat after attending an event at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. It is within walking distance of the center so we did not have to move our car from the parking garage. There was seating inside and outside, we opted on sitting inside. There is also a room upstairs that I believe is used for... More

Our party of four ate a wonderful lunch before a matinee at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts. The portions are big! Three in our party had specialty salads and the other a hamburger. All were serviced quickly and with a friendly smile. The drink selection was diverse. We received a free appetizer after showing our Center tickets which... More

Clean, quick and consistent. A great place for a quick business lunch downtown. LOVE the kale salad (which they add grilled chicken to) and a cup of the conch chowder is an easy 'go-to' lunch that is filling but healthy.

Even though it was getting crowded before a game, staff was prompt and attentive. Food was good - not exceptional, but this isn't a "fine dinning" type of place.

My wife and I went to the Fort Lauderdale Jazz brunch and decided to take a quick lunch. We walked west on 2nd St. And came across Tarpon Bend. We had a chips and guacamole appetizer that came on black beans,shrimp and crab. The best we're ever had and I don't usually care for guacamole !! We shared a chicken... More

I love the Mahi Mahi Tacos entrée. There's two soft-shell tacos loaded with tasty ingredients to accompany the fish. And a side order, on a separate plate, comes with black beans and yellow rice. The rice, today anyway, was augmented with bits of veggies. The beans were slightly topped with salsa. These additions to what could be mundane beans and... More

Had dinner on a Saturday night. Waitress was fine - friendly and knew the menu. The food was OK - had the spicy fish sandwich that was not spicy (almost tasteless). Price was reasonable. The atmosphere was young and loud. Not sure if they are trying to be a night club or a restaurant ....
