Have eaten here many times and breakfast is an excellent time to visit. Right next to where you dine is Robbies where you can feed the amazing tarpon and now they have a resident manatee which you can get up close to. Not to be missed.

Had dinner while passing through to Key West. Healthy portions and a fair price. Was nice to sit outside on the water. Staff was very friendly.

We stopped here to go and feed the Tarpon. For $4.00 you get a half dozen fish that you can go and feed to the gigantic Tarpon who know enough to stick around as there are a lot of people here feeding them. It is fun and after that we stopped to grab a beverage and some chow which we... More

We went here for dinner, after my husband and his best friend had gone on a fishing excursion with Robbie's Marina. The restaurant allows one to bring catch caught and will cook it for $12.00 per person, which is very reasonable. I appreciated that the Marina had the restaurant refrigerate it, so we didn't have to travel back and fourth... More

This place was really a good find. If the weather had been warmer we would have been able to feed the Tarpon. The GPS didn't want you to stop here, something may have been wrong in the address. The the Giant sign that says ROBBIES is confusing. The music was very loud for a n outside bar. It made it... More

Wanted to feed the tarpon and shop for some trinkets/souvenirs, so thought we would eat at Hungry Tarpons. There was a musician playing, which was fine, but EXTREAMLY loud. Our party of 5 could hear each other, we had to shout as if we were in a night club. Our server was very inattentive. We finally had to hold our... More

It may not look so welcoming from the outside but it is a good place to stop in. My husband and I love having breakfast here. Outdoor seating under bird-filled branches and plenty of pelicans to entertain you while you eat. The tarpon are home here and you can go out on the dock to see these humongous fish, even... More

If we wanted to eat we had to go to the bar as the restaurant was closed for whatever reason. We ordered the "trailer trash bloody mary" because the pictures on their web site looked amazing.... In person, not so much...we left dissapointed

We did have to shut down our outdoor seating due to heavy rain and winds, a few times over the last couple of weeks. We apologize that you felt that your Bloody Mary was not up to standards. We have never had any complaints about it and it seems to be a favorite item on our drink menu. We do... More

There is something wrong with Tripadvisor overall ratings as there is no option between Average and Very Good. This place is Good, but not Very Good. We visited on a rainy day and were made very welcome under the limited covered area. There is plenty of uncovered places but these were not appropriate in the rain. The whole set up... More

We do wish that mother nature was a bit more cooperative on your visit. October tends to give us heavy rain and windy days here and there. We are all about our beautiful outdoor seating and pray for the rain to stay away. We have plans to develop more covered outdoor seating in the near future. I definitely agree that... More

This is a really neat place to eat. You can sit along the water and watch the tarpon while you eat! They have live music many times and the people are very friendly. The food was very good and you got a lot of it. Plus, if you go on the snorkel tour you get 10% off you meal!
