We stopped at the Hungry Tarpon at Robbie's on our way through the Keys. We stopped at 3PM on a Monday in August and didn't have to wait for a table. The atmosphere is casual and dining is waterfront. It was fun to see people...More

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

Robbie's consists of a waterside restaurant/ bar (The Hungry Tarpon), a selection of small shops/ stalls, and its main attraction, a small pier where wild tarpon can be fed (for a few dollars). Pelicans and other fish & bird species also come to be fed....More

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.
