Good service, great location, food was ok. The fish was good and fresh but I cannot understand the combination gravy - mashed potatoes with a seafood dish. As for the wine, well next time I'll order a beer :-)

Last spring my friends and I were able to have breakfast at the Hungry Tarpon and we enjoyed it so much that we promised to return on our next trip. The portions were large, dishes were unique, and the value was great. We loved the location, the views, and were pleased with the friendly staff. This year, with my boyfriend... More

Everything was great from the atmosphere to feeding the tarpons to eating delicious and fresh food. The Bloody Mary was also delicious! The only thing that could use improve net is the restroom quantity. There is only one bathroom and a very long line. No fun there. But all is was great.

Thanks for this great review! I would say checking on the weather before hand is some solid advice. We do have indoor seating but the best would definitely be outside. We are glad you enjoyed our fish tacos and thankful you took the time to leave us such a great review. Hopefully we will see you all back down here... More

I went here twice within a couple of weeks. The first time was a group dinner, and the second time was a quiet, and early, breakfast. The group dinner was great, but it was a late dinner, and the Tarpon had all gone to bed. Next to the restaurant is a small marina with fishing charters, etc. Service was on... More

We stopped here by chance on our way to Key West. I was a little leary at first, but the food was good! While the waitress was taking our order, a bird pooped right in front of her on the table. She immediately cleaned it up and offered to move us. We declined and laughed about it. We had stopped... More

Very causal outdoor dining next to a marina. Service very good. Friendly atmosphere and good food. The Cuban sandwich was very good and so were the fish tacos. Give it a try.

Was looking forward to this restaurant as I had read good reviews and since we would be around with a small boat, it made it a perfect destination for lunch. We drove to it at first and after waiting about 10 minutes to be seated, the hostess sat us at a stool. We waited 40 minutes before anybody else even... More

We were going on a fishing trip from Robbie's Marina and decided to have breakfast at the adjacent open air cafe/bar/restaurant. The food was excellent, cheap, and the setting is fab, overlooking the dock. We enjoyed it so much we returned the next day on the way to Key West and had another satisfying and very filling egg and bacon... More

We stopped here on the way to Key West. It is a great point to break up the trip. Food was good and you must feed the tarpon. By hand is the best.
