In the Florida Keys you'll find this old Keys-style marina and fish shack "somewhere on A1A." A true conch atmosphere with many tasty delights, here in this Florida Keys restaurant you'll find yourself indulged in the Caribbean-inspired cuisine, the compassionate people and old Keys tranquility that is the Hungry Tarpon restaurant in Islamorada. The building has been standing since 1947 and with a home like Robbie's of Islamorada, plus a fascinating history, it all makes the Hungry Tarpon a part of the tradition since 1976. Enjoy dining on our bayside deck with tiki torches lighting up the night. Relax with friends over our fabulous appetizers and watch the boats come and go. Stroll our open

My wife had the silver king breakfast sandwich. I had the 2 eggs any style (which came with hashbrowns and choice of meat and toast). Everything was really good. Our server, Adrian, was excellent. The atmosphere and view were excellent as well.

After a long day of snorkeling, the Thai Fish Finger appetizer hit the spot. Very good sauces, and fish was perfect. Thank you for the table on the water and the free iguana show.More

Went here for lunch and waited so long for a Mahi sandwich (just okay) it turned into dinner. The wait staff seemed to think that a 1 1/2 hour kitchen backup was acceptable with no need to mention.

After walking around Robbie’s we decided to try the smoked fish dip at the Hungry Tarpon Restaurant. It was hands down the best I’ve ever had!! They use Mahi fish and its served with sides of jalapeños, banana peppers and capers. Don’t miss this appetizer.
