Last spring my friends and I were able to have breakfast at the Hungry Tarpon and we enjoyed it so much that we promised to return on our next trip. The portions were large, dishes were unique, and the value was great. We loved the location, the views, and were pleased with the friendly staff.
This year, with my boyfriend along for the first time, we weren't disappointed to share this great, be it quirky, stop along the road. Many times over the years, we had stopped and strolled through the craft village next to Robbie's but never given The Hungry Tarpon a try. What a mistake that was and a loss for us! You can't make up all of that time but this year we did attempt gain a little ground and visited the restaurant twice while in town. Each time we were pleased as could be!
The guys tried the Tarpon's take on the Bloody Mary's. It consists of three stuffed olives with unique fillings of blue cheese, Slim Jims, and a pickle, complimented by additional garnishes that ranged from the traditional... to the 'Now Why Didn't I Think of That?'. They lined the glass and included a pickled green bean, celery stalk, plump cocktail shrimp, and the most irresistible crisp slice of bacon you've ever seen. I'm told it all decorates a perfected blended Bloody Mary mix that didn't knock you into next week but wasn't afraid to dance on your tongue a bit after the juice hit your belly.
There are lots of choices up and down the road. When you are on vacation the problem isn't finding a place to stop but rather finding the time. In my book, if you make time to go to the same place more than once on the same trip, that says something! Treat yourself and check this place out...you'll be glad that you did!
