We were there with a party of 8. Had to wait for a table but no big deal because it is such a fun atmosphere and plenty of things to do while you wait. After being seated we noted a lot of tables around us...More

After you feed the Tarpon (A must do) stop by for a delicious lunch and an ice cold brew. Great place!

Well, now, I just thought this place was the bomb dot com. We ordered the conch fritters as an appetizer and let me tell you, these hush puppies were a-barking! They were dy-no-mite! I ordered the shrimp tacos, but there wasn't anything shrimp about them...More

My bf had the magic fingers and I had the stitzville sandwich...both were amazing. The shaded areas were a nice relief from the sun. The server was busy but managed to still be attentive. We would definately go back.

We stopped here on our way to Key West for a late lunch. This place was actually recommended to me by someone back home who happened to stop here. The parking area is unpaved, but large. People even parked alongside the road leading to it....More

This is a place we come back to time and again for breakfast. The food is great, the portions more than generous, and the service crisp and caring. Today’s server, Adrian, anticipated our every need. We will be back.

Description
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 air shops then wander to our sandy beach, melt into one of our bayside lounge chairs and let the sea air wash away the rush of the day.
