My husband and I went for a drive to Pine Island and ended up having lunch at the Tarpon Lodge. The staff was fantastic and we could not have asked for a better view. We watched the boats and a storm come in. The food was amazing. My husband had the Cuban sandwich and said it is by far the... More

I hesitate to write this review as I may be shooting myself in the foot. So, consequently, I’m not revealing our room number as I want it to be available when I return. For years we’ve talked about staying at the Tarpon Lodge; but, just never got around to it. Recently we had lunch on Cabbage Key and the paper... More

We ended up eating here, only because I opened up the Trip Advisor app and was looking for a restaurant with good reviews. This place is hidden, really hidden. If not for Trip Advisor we would have never found it, and would have not gone in to check it out. This place was wonderful. The staff very friendly and the... More

The Tarpon Lodge is so well maintained it might be a movie set. The rolling green lawns, palm trees swaying in the breeze, lots of quiet, still water, blue sky. I chose it for our week long family reunion (57 of us) because I wanted my family to get a taste of old Florida. This place is the opposite of... More

Beautiful and peaceful setting with lovely, clean rooms. Old Florida style and charm with modern amenities. If you want t get away from everything and recharge, this is a great choice. The restaurant offers first-rate dining without being formal. Whether you want to stay a few nights or just have a special meal this is a great choice.

We dined here earlier this month for our 13th wedding anniversary. My sister in law lives in nearby Fort Myers and made a reservation for us ( party of four) for dinner. The food was outstanding. This was definitely one of the top 10 meals that I've ever had. Frankie was our server and he was great! Three members of... More

This was our second stay at Tarpon Lodge. This is truly a special property, in a magnificant location. The rooms are ultra-comfortable, and quiet. The staff works continuously to maintain the outstanding quality of these grounds and facility. This is a great location to head out for fishing, and a wonderful place to just float in the pool, and listen... More

We drove our boat to the Tarpon Lodge and stayed three nights. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We stayed on the second floor of the lodge in a room that had a balcony with table and two chairs. We were blessed with wonderful weather and the nice windows let in the gorgeous sunlight. Boating in this area is... More

We spent 4 days here in our first ever vacation to the gulf coast of Florida. We couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations, restaurant and activities. All the staff was very pleasant. We stayed in room 6. Little small, but very clean and well appointed. The balcony has a great view and is quiet. We birded multiple times... More

Tarpon Lodge is my favorite place to dine while on Pine Island. It is a perfect mix of very fine and very casual dining. The soups are always good here, as are the salads, appetizers and desserts. Try the chicken quesadilla or the shrimp tortilla. You will not be disappointed. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Good selection of... More
