We absolutely loved the brunch and cant wait to go back for dinner. There is a reason why Tarpon Bay was rated as one of the best brunches in the Fort Myers area.

The bacon wrapped grouper is absolutely incredible. The first taste hooked me and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. Three of us had this dish and all really enjoyed it. The fourth member of our party had the black grouper which was also excellent. The ceviche appetizers are also great. Recommend the tuna, shrimp and conch ones. Service was outstanding. Henry...

Staying at adjoined hotel Coconut Point Hyatt Regency, decided to venture out first night there to something on the resort and could not have been more pleased, the seafood is fresh and cooked to perfection, not over seasoned and allows the quality of the seafood to be tasted.

What an amazing seafood restaurant! Many choices, all sound delicious. We chose the Seafood Tower as an appetizer for the table. It is huge! We loved sampling the ceviches.

We enjoyed our recent dinner at Tarpon Bay. We sat at the raw bar and enjoyed a number of appetizers. The drink prices are a little high but that is typical for a hotel restaurant.

The ceviche appetizer is Amazing! We ate her a few times during our stay at the Hyatt and tried many things on the menu and not of them disappointed us. Everything on the menu was awesome and they also have some very good wines by the glass that did not disappoint us either.
