“Great food and service”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The Tarpon Lodge has been around for quite some time and there is a reason for that. The food, service and views are the best around. Expect to pay on the higher end for a meal, but it is certainly worth it. The servers are attentive and helpful and the food is first rate. On our last visit we sat on the porch. Unfortunately there was a group of people seated not too far away who thought they were in a nightclub rather than a restaurant. The manager came to our table twice to apologize for their rude behavior and offered us two desserts on the house. That wasn't necessary but it was greatly appreciated. We'll certainly be back again.

Thank you for your review. Tarpon Lodge & Restaurant opened to the public in 2000 and we are extremely proud that our 1926 Lodge received historic designation from the Lee County Historic Preservation Board in 2001.

It makes us happy to hear that we will see you again!

“Beautiful scenery”
Reviewed May 23, 2014 via mobile

Be sure to sit on the screened porch to take in the view. We had lunch there which is a little pricey for this area but the view makes up for it.

“Beautiful waterfront restaurant”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

Fantastic food, even better service by Frankie T who left no question unanswered. It's really a gem in the area worth a visit. Were a party of 6, had different appetizers, which all were very delicious and a great main course. We enjoyed it and will be back there.
The whole staff is very friendly and helpful.

“Go near time of sunset”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

This place is a little fancier but you'll see people in shorts and tee shirt there as well. The food here is the best and match that with a view of the bay makes it better. This is the best sunset around the area, reminds a little of Hawaii. The food and service are the best. Been there with groups and as couples no complaints by anyone. Get the specials and grab a drink and go outside to see the sun set. The lodge is also a quiet place to stay.

Thank you for your review. You're right - casual attire is welcome at Tarpon Lodge. After all, many of our customers join us for lunch while spending the day on the boat.

Great suggestion to grab a drink from the bar and take a stroll on the property for sunset. We think we have some of the best sunsets in Southwest Florida.

See you soon!
