Reservations suggested, well worth it. This was a splurge for us. We both loved every bite. The atmosphere is lovely.

We decided to try this restaurant at the last minute and are so glad we did. We'd seen the Tarpon Inn go through many changes since the '60's, it looks nice now and we'd read great reveiws of Roosevelt's. We didn't have reservations but were seated immediately. Its very small but quaint and the waitress was friendly and not intrusive.... More

After getting denied a table at Lisabella's because they were too booked, we went to Roosevelt's. Roosevelt's was also very booked, but asked if we were OK with sitting outside. We got two adjacent tables outside next to a neatly cut grassy area and lights running in the trees. This was perfect for three young kids to run around and... More

We just left a wonderful dinner at Roosevelt's (at the Tarpon Inn) for a party of 10. I made the reservations about 2 weeks ago and the told me they would have to split the party at 9 pm. They split us up in two tables next to each other - a 6 top and a 4 top but that... More

We celebrated my husband's birthday at Roosevelt's. Our food was wonderful and our server, Wendy was terrific; taking photos on multiple cameras, patiently checking to make sure we liked the pictures all while advising on the menu. My daughter loved the coconut shrimp. My husband enjoyed the Grouper, the chicken involtini was devine but mine was the best, sauted red... More

We ate here the last night of our stay Aug 12th and are really glad we found out about this restaurant! We elected to dine early (6pm) after a full day of fun in the sun and no problems changing our reservations from 7pm. When we arrived we were seated in what I would describe as a small intimate dining... More

This restaurant seems to fly below the radar but in our experience it is the best on the island. We have been coming here for four years and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent, the service prompt, attentive and friendly. They offer a variety of good but not too expensive wines. The balsamic bruschetta bread is not to... More

For foodies who truly appreciate amazing fresh cooked ingredients that are turned into masterpieces this is the place for you. We were greeted by the manager who was such a nice man. When our reservations were lost he made sure to take care of us. What a huge deal for such a small place. With only 8 tables on a... More

Good fresh menu with choice of indoor or outdoor courtyard seating. Not a place with a water view but the food and the service make up for it! Six of us had different things and everything was excellent! The stuffed tuna seemed to be the winner for seafood but the crab cake was a close runner up! Wine and liquor... More
