Chef Gaston Javier Sanchez has done an outstanding job of creating a culinary experience t remember. The oysters were fresh and plentiful, The Tarpon Trio is a great sampler of calamari, lobster mac n cheese, and shrimp potstickers that are full of flavor. The seafood de mare over a unique pappardelle was nothing short of excellent, and the strawberry short... More

Simple - BEST SEAFOOD I have had in a long time. The lobster bisque is a must! - It is a bit pricey! But worth it!

Nice looking place with a Key West vibe. the food is tremendously lacking in creativity. What the food sacrifices in flavor, it makes up for, and then some, in high prices. would not recommend dining here.

Tarpon Bay did not disappoint. From the minute we sat down with Henry, it was first class. The raw oysters and the octopus as appetizers were both excellent. The mozzarella salad was a nice twist on this classic. We ordered the seared sea bass and the Florida shrimp. Both really good choices. We could not decide who's was the best.... More

Entree's were Black Grouper that was over cooked and very small portion @$34.00 The Whole Red snapper was a mess of food. Topped... More
