“Great find!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

At mile marker 77.5 on southbound side of U.S. 1 in Islamorada, the Hungry Tarpon is a classic "dive" that should be on DDD! The grilled cheese with bacon and grilled onion is super, with a side of black beans and rice. The Cobb salad with an extra portion of grilled chicken was enough to feed a party of three!

Atmosphere is "dive-y" cool!

“Excellent Seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

The restaurant isn't much to look at on the outside (or inside for that matter). The service however is excellent, and the food is phenomenal. The fried shrimp was the best my husband (a chef of 10 years and avid traveler) has ever had. The price is also unbeatable. Definitely worth a try.

“Excellent Restaurant in Tropical Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Stopped to feed the tarpons and stayed for a delicious lunch in a tranquil setting. Food, service and price were excellent. One of the best kept secrets in the upper keys. There is a marina on property with various rentals. Also a local craft market to enjoy.
