Worth the wait!

We stayed in Tarpon Springs for a week & this had to be the best meal we had by a long shot. We waited close to one & a half hours but after our dining experience, it was worth while. They have legit seafood/fish of all kinds, our waitress was super nice & attentive, & also had a good atmosphere!

This restaurant was recommended to us for their soups. We were not disappointed. I had the stone crab soup, It was the best soup I ever had. They free bag of fritters they bring to the table were outstanding! Our lunch was so delicious we went back the next day for dinner. The staff "Chrissy" was a great waitress! We... More

We came back because we like the seafood and the fishing boat dockside location. The food will not disappoint an is reasonably priced. The happy hour Marguritas were too sugary and the bloodmary's were overspiced, both unpleasant.

Rusty Bellies is one of the best and most fun restaurants we have been to recently. It is on the water and, while it doesn't have fancy tablecloths, etc, it has super food. Expect to wait 20 - 30 minutes unless you show up real early or after about 8:30. Rusty's Pot Belly is amazing. It is a combination of... More

Some of the freshest I have ever had, there was a bit of a wait, but we enjoyed cocktails on the large deck. We asked a woman walking her dogs, for a recommendation and we were not disappointed. Would definitely go back, when in the area!

We did not eat much here but what we did was excellent and the ambiance so pleasant. We stopped for a light lunch on a Wednesday and there was already a waiting list for outside...but you MUST eat outside on the deck or in the open air Tiki Bar as the dining room is dismal. We put our name in,... More

Four of us really enjoyed our waterside lunch. Fried whole Ipswich clams were as good as any in N.England, just fewer of them. Very good burgers and large salads-be sure and order the small or be prepared to share-might not get your Greek salad here, but others are delicious. Busy weekend in Tarpon Springs with the Greek heritage parade, but... More

The 85 minute wait on a beautiful night was a blast in the Tiki bar and the bartenders were awesome and the entertainment and other couples waiting were great. Getting a table on the deck on a 70 degree night was relieving until the actual food came which was plates of fried, bland seafood disguised under some marketing menu talk.... More
