The outdoor seating, right on the water was awesome. The service, however, + bad food ruined our experience. First we asked for water with our drinks and our server never brought them. Then my husband's silverwear was wrapped in a dirty napkin. The server was very friendly, but a little too friendly and became annoying. Our food was pretty bad on top of everything else. I had the steak frites and my steak was over cooked. My husband had the shrimp pizza and the sauce was described to us as a garlic cream sauce (was not described on the menu) but it tasted like goat cheese and no garlic. I normally would love goat cheese but I'm pregnant so I can't eat it but only realized after I had taken a couple of bites. My husband hates goat cheese and keeps saying he needs to wash his mouth out with gasoline to remove the taste.
All in all we loved the atmosphere but tarpon needs to work on everything else.
