We ate here after feeding the tarpon. Everything was fine, we mainly had burgers and fries. It's a little expensive, but is right on the sea so that's why. It's a little quirky too as you can write on a bill & staple it to...More

Our server was terrific (Lindsay Mae) -- friendly, fun and helpful. The food is standard bar fare (with some additional fish dishes available). Definitely on "island time" -- we had a big group, and we were seated for 2 hours for burgers and fish sandwiches....More

I am so sorry. I just saw this question. But I do not know if they have gluten-free options.

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.
