“Entertaining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

I really wasn't sure whether we'd get good service, let alone good food. It looks like a hole in the wall type of place. It's obvious most people eat outside, but I was over heated & needed a/c. Walls are covered with photos of all sorts of people & interesting bumper stickers. Our server was friendly. The one young lady who we assumed was in charge of the upfront cooks was very focused on putting out good food. She was not accepting mediocre food. Loved the banter between all the employees. Very friendly staff. The food was excellent. I had bacon cheeseburger & it was to die for. Juicey, tasty, yummy. Thanks to everybody.

“Loved the atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Everyone recommended that we stop at Hungry Tarpon/Robbie's on our trip down to Key West and I am glad we did! The atmosphere was great and so were the drinks. We sat right on the water and got to go on the dock to see the tarpons for free, since we had been at the restaurant. Only thing that was slightly lacking was the service. Maybe he was just busy, but our waiter wasn't very friendly and when he brought out the food and we asked which one was Grouper and which one was Mahi, he said "I don't know, just break it in two to see?" Just caught us off guard. But that still didn't take away from the experience, the view is awesome. We will definitely be coming back!

“Great little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

We ate inside. I love the island feel of a little road side restaurant. The fish tacos were great. It was the first time I had tried fish taco and I wasnt disappointed. Would recommend stopping here.

“Lunch and things to do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

We had drinks and an appetizer at this restaurant.We tried the Conch Ceviche and it was great, they serve it with chips. After that, we stepped next door to Robbies Marina and fed the Tarpon fish. We then purchased some art at the vendors there.
