Great river tiki

Have a Tarpon Pointe Rita and fish tacos and chill! Music many days but website is not good at keeping schedule of entertainment. They should do a better job as we would go more often!

The food was outstanding. We all ordered something different and all enjoyed the food. The view of the river and sunset is amazing. Love this place.

We had a very large party and reserved at Tarpon point. All dining is currently outside. It's Florida and very hot most of the year so be prepared to sweat a little. The food was okay. No one was overly crazy about anything they ordered. The view is nice as it's right on the water. There is a tiki hut... More

We really enjoyed our experience. The restaurant is an open air style under a roof. Beautiful view of the water. Right next to the restaurant is a large tiki bar with a bandstand. White sand surrounds the whole area. Our food was wonderful. There's a variety of bowls, salads, sea food, burgers, sandwiches, etc. We will be going back. Especially... More

Before going here for lunch, I read the reviews & hesitated... But we went anyway. We came early for lunch with several couples and were able to sit right down at a long wooden picnic table. The bar tender was friendly, helpful and did a great job wearing two hats (tending bar and waiting tables). The drinks were great! The... More

As expected, the service was awesome! The bar service for a late evening cocktail and snack was great! Our bartender Jackie was awesome!

The food has become quite average at best and the service is hit or miss. If I'm going to pay $17 for a Bland Grouper Sandwich I don't want it served on a Hostess hamburger bun. The shrimp tacos were also very mediocre at best. I use to come here once or twice a month but can't justify taking a... More

This is a nice restaurant/tiki bar right on the water with a sand area. The food was really good! The staff was pleasant.

This is an outdoor restaurant, and the couple of fans were only circulating hot humid air. Beer gets hot quickly so you have to drink fast. Food was like a typical bar, and nothing to return for.
