“Good menu, good food, good service, good prices - it's all there.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Tarpon Creek is a hit, after it's previous life under another name and management. Only compliments for the kitchen and the waitstaff, including Sue who provided excellent service. We had the specials of the day for lunch - a gyro with lamb and tzatziki and a unique pea salad, and the best herb roasted chicken salad in memory. The menu has something for everyone without being one of those everything-under-the-sun-for-all menus that can't be well executed. It's all real here and it's good enough for repeat trips.

“Great hut to eat, rock and hang out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

The Island across the street is a tiki hut with good food and service, this place is an upscale version but with the same prices. Atmosphere is laid back with 70s Classic Rock from my high school daze piped in over a nice sound system right on the water. We stopped in for lunch. The Cuban Rice Ball appetizer was unique and awesome and the margaritas were great. Their Piglet pizza came from the wood fired grill and was the best pizza I've had in the Keys. The shrimp and chips was perfectly prepared gulf pinks lightly breaded and fried. The fries were also light and seasoned with a unique blend. Super clean place with great food and service, and a great place to hang out and enjoy the view.

“Great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

The service as this restaurant is great, as soon as we walked in we were immediately greeted. Our waitress was very nice and efficient. The manager walked by and asked how everything was. The food was really good, and the key lime pie is amazing. The view of the restaurant is gorgeous, and it is accessible by boat.

“Excellent Place to Dine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

This was the cleanest & most comfortable dining location we found on Marathon. Prices were nearly the same all over but you could eat for a little less here. The food was good & Merri the server was outstanding, even taking care of our ill companion with ginger ale & crackers. Highly recommended.
