Been here many times for lunch, dinner and happy hour but last Sunday was our first time for brunch. Crab cake benedict was delicious. Complimentary mimosas for the ladies who order an entrée was a great bonus. Several of the other restaurants on 2nd offer brunch but also played very loud music so you couldn't have a conversation. While you... More

We dined here on recommendation from the front desk of our hotel. It was walking distance from the Ft. Lauderdale Downtown Hampton/Las Olas area. We had skipped lunch so went for dinner during happy hour. Arrived around 5:30. Draft beers were 2 for 1 - even all the craft beer, which a lot of places do not include. We had... More

On the first Sunday of each month, the Jazz Brunch Music Fest is held at the downtown Fort Lauderdale band shell along the New River. It is a fun venue with live music and lots of families out enjoying the local flavor of the event. When you get hungry, head on over to Tarpon Bend in the Himmarshee section for... More

I have never eaten food here nor would I. I mean it might be good but to me it is just a place to come for happy hour and meet your local buddies. Or hang out on the upper deck and watch the college girls try to walk in fancy heels to turn on the banker types. Happy hour here... More

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.
