    We were a party of seven. We were seated a few minutes before our reservation, when we arrived. The table placement was perfect and quiet for a wonderful family dinner and conversation. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Some had red snapper, filet mignon, shrimp and scallop scampi and even the nine-year old enjoyed his pizza from the kids menu.

    This is simply the best lunch spot of all the island restaurants we have been to around Boca Grande. It is hands down our favorite (especially vs Useppa where we used to go). Steve the dockmaster makes arriving by boat simple and is a great help. Open table makes the reservation system easy, and we usually have 8-10 people when we come so we do use it. The menu has delicious starter items like crab and corn soup and wonderful fish pate appetizers, among others. The wait staff is always attentive and knoledgebable and friendly. We always feel refreshed after a stop for lunch at Tarpon Lodge. A+++

    An evening at Tarpon Lodge is always a treat. A warm welcome, our request for porch seating was not possible but they had a wonderful table by the open porch area. Excellent attentive service, perfectly presentation of foods and drinks. All make for a magical evening for a wonderful double birthday celebration with friends.

    When we got there we couldn’t find the actual restaurant as you park in the back. When we asked someone at the outside bar, they said follow the path all the way around, not the case we ended us using the back door, through a crowd eating dinner. We could barely understand the waitress she was very nice but had a very heavy accent. The food is was good, except for the main course. We both ordered filet mignon cooked medium they both were bleeding and looked like raw tuna on the inside. I had to send mine back I couldn’t eat it, my husband did his best. Even the second steak was red on the inside red and bleeding I half of it. It was worst steak ever, and that ruined it. It was my husband’s birthday we decided to try something new, and he could barely eat the steak. We won’t be back.

    We have dined here many times; having found it a few years ago as we are from Maine. The atmosphere, food, service, and feeling of stepping back in time make dining here a memorable experience. We brought visitors from Maine and, like us, loved the experience. We'll be back soon!

    Me and my wife were celebrating our 1st anniversary and this place came highly recommended. Our reservation was at 8:00 so we arrived about 45 minutes early to watch the sunset and it was a spectacular view. Then we sat down only about 2 minutes after check in and had our best meal in a long time. They gave us a free dessert for our anniversary and it was also delicious. Great view, great atmosphere and highly recommended.

    It's a shame that the service was not up to par and that when our food arrived, portions were cold.. Took way to long for our wine and deserts.. The hostess was very nice as was the bus girl, Abby. They should be commended.. Overall, not sure we would go out of our way to go there again..

    We were not sure at first about this restaurant based on the length of our drive to get there. But, wow, it was so worth it! Great service. Amazing view on the water. Our food was exceptional. I got the scallops special and my wife enjoyed the Triple Tail (a Local catch). I highly recommend the Tarpon Lodge Restaurant!

    We have dined at Tarpon Lodge now many, many times. The owner usually comes and greets us and is very cordial. The staff are all incredibly nice and seemed pleased to be there. The quality of the food is outstanding. Everyone (there was 8 of us) enjoyed their lunch. I had the fish tacos and highly recommend them. You will not go wrong dining at Tarpon Lodge. BTW, it is an easy boat ride from Boca Grande.
