“Tasty but Expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

We had very little time to eat lunch and the restaurant committed to get us out of there quickly ... and they did, so service was a plus. The food (shrimp sandwich, chopped salad with chicken) was quite tasty and portions were large. Having said that, prices were still high -- $40 for lunch for two. The restaurant itself is nicely appointed and has a busy vibe.

“Always a good experience..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

My husband and I have visited Tarpon Bend twice while visiting Miami. We had very similar good visits on both occasions. The service is enthusiastic and accommodating but more than that they were honest. On each visit, two different waiters told us that they didn't know anything about white wine or oysters. They offered sample tastes of wine for us to try and made suggestions on what other customers ordered. The seared tuna salad and shrimp salad were both good, the tuna slightly better and the oysters were fresh. It's is reasonably priced, neither a rip off or bargain. There was very pleasant live music on a Saturday night. What stood out to us most though was the staff, while maybe not knowledgable they were friendly, enthusiastic and quite capable.
