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

I was really looking forward to a having a nice dinner, but unfortunately, left a bit disappointed. I had called for reservations as I had heard they were necessary and was told they had "just had a cancellation and could squeeze us in", I was excited!!. . .funny, when we arrived there were plenty of open tables that were not...

Stopped in for a quick drink to enjoy this great historic site. Everything about the Tarpon Inn says history. They even have a few tales of old fisherman visiting from the past. Excellent!

Thank you Roosevelt's for a WONDERFUL first anniversary dinner! We were there on April 25, 2014 and it was our first time to eat there. We had a great waitress and trainee... very attentive! The food was amazing, good bottle of Malbec, lovely atmosphere sitting outside, and again the staff was wonderful. Our waitress gave us complimentary "best bread ever"... More

Walked in for our reservation on Mother's Day. A short, dark haired woman dressed in black [manager? owner?] looked us up and down, and asked if we had reservations. She clearly expected us to say we were walk-ins, and she clearly thought we were dressed inappropriately. I can assure you we were dressed in the same manner as the other... More

We wanted one high class meal while we were on vacation. We took our kids with us ages 7 and 10. They have no kids menu which we expected. They were so kind and had no problem splitting a meal for my kids. My meal was nothing short of spectacular! The meat was cooked to perfection and the veggies were... More

Roosevelt's has 8 tables inside and about 6 outside, and the food here is excellent. We had beef tenderloin, which was to die for. Extensive wine list. Prompt and professional service. Be sure to make a reservation on weekends as the space is limited. In our opinion the #1 restaurant in Port A.

My wife and I went to the Roosevelt on our anniversary night in late April. We had never been there before, but wanted something a little bit nicer then the normal everyday restaurants. We were very pleased all the way around about the service, food, ambiance, and price. It will run about $30 each without any alcohol and you can... More

We were surprised that Roosevelt's dining room was so small ... Just 8 tables ... But it was a cozy setting with real linen and candles on the tables. The chefs worked with efficiency and a sense of purpose in an open kitchen that was absolutely spotless. The service and food were both top notch. I had a wedge salad... More
