A very nice service. A very good atmosphere. A place to visit different from Las Olas. Good music. A lot of beautiful people.

They have a nice menu here, though it's tough to find any vegan options. Their veggie burger is vegan (without the bun) and it was tasty. Good for seafood and my friends enjoyed their dishes (2 had different kinds of salmon, one had mussels). Location is convenient to the Broward Center, so it's a great place to eat before a... More

On Fridays it's happy hour till 10 with a live band. Food is delicious and for a packed venue the stuff knows how to handle it. Best happy hour and most importantly there consistent. If your a local you already know where to go!

Happening Area Young People Fish tacos were good. Yellow Fin Tuna salad would have been better with less dressing. Tuna was excellent. Happy Hour "2 for 1". Per person. You can't get a beer for yourself and another for a friend.

The mahi sandwich, burger, and ahi salad we ordered were all very good. Good craft beer selection as well. If you're looking for a bar atmosphere with decent food and you don't mind the noise level, then Tarpon Bend is a great choice.

Stopped in for lunch with our party of 15. The staff had us seated within moments and took great care of us! The Dolphin Reuben is delicious!

We've been to Tarpon Bend a few times. I usually get the black and blue burger. It's always cooked to perfection but this trip, Nicole our fantastic server recommend the burger with the bacon jam and a fried egg (I forgot the name). It was fantastic. We still talk about. The shrimp margarita, calamari and chicken wings are also great.... More

I went to tarpon last Friday night with a bunch of my friends for happy hour. The place was packed! We were lucky enough to get Nicole as our server. She made sure we got the best service and always had our drinks full.

Thank Nicholas D
