We enjoyed three dinners here during our week long stay nearby. Each was really good. The wait staff was also good. The restaurant looks over the hotel pool area and the water beyond. Very pretty. You can eat on the porch if you want but be aware that the setting sun goes down in your face! I had Drunken Grouper... More

We all had wonderful meals. The salads had tasty fresh ingredients, the fish was perfectly prepared and our waitress, Tayllor, was not only charming but patient, pleasant & efficient. We will definitely return!

After getting a drink and appetizer at Charley's Cabana, we walked over to Tarpon House for dinner. My wife requested "a warm spot" but we were seated by the window. We only just sat down when we decided not to stay. It was cold, pounding pop music was loud, and the place was nearly empty -- not the kind of... More

We stayed two nights in the Presidential Suite at Sanibel Harbor Marriott. The upgrade was a complete surprise. We had our breakfasts in the luxuriant atmosphere of Tarpon House. Dinners were elsewhere but Tarpon House would have been good I am sure for dinners too.

My wife and I recently had dinner at the Tarpon House. The setting is lovely, the service was very good, and the food was pretty good. It's certainly worth trying if you're in the area, but I had a pasta dish with seafood that was supposed to be spicy and it was not very flavorful, was made with slightly overcooked... More

Got a quick lunch here and wasn't impressed. Jimmy the server was very nice but the fish tacos were very bland and the salad only standard. Ok I guess if you need a quick meal but otherwise forgetable.

Because we were there during a cold snap, we didn't get out much and ended up eating many meals in the restaurant. The turkey club was the best I ever had and everything else (soups, hamburger, salad) were also excellent. The service is excellent too. We had two different waitresses. They were both very attentive and effusive and clearly loved... More

We ate here a couple times, so I have 2 reviews. Breakfast buffet = 5. We had breakfast here twice and loved it; good coffee, omelet bar, and lots of other food choices including some great fresh fruit. This is everything we wanted in a breakfast buffet and left happy both times we ate here! Christmas buffet = 3 (or... More

The prices are outrageously high for what you get. The adult meals don't come with a salad to start, which you would think they would considering the price of the entrees. Thai Shrimp bowl was WAY too spicy. It was bizarre that the shrimp had the tails still on them. You had to pick out the shrimp and remove the... More
