We stopped for lunch and cocktails on a Wednesday afternoon. The hostess was the most unfriendly restaurant employee we encountered on our week trip to the Keys. The food was good but not outstanding for the price.

Wife and I went to The Hungry Tarpon for dinner with our puppy (they are very pet friendly). Puppy got real excited watching the tarpons. Food was good and the service was excellent. The carrot cake was the best ever.

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.
