The food is always great. I never get a bad meal. Service is good and always leave happy. They have large TV screens to watch the games while you eat. You can't ask for anything else,

I had lunch here again as this is one of my favorite restaurants in the Las Olas/Old Fort Lauderdale area. It is a short walk from The Riverside Hotel on Las Olas where I was staying. I had the Grouper sandwich that was very good. Tarpon bend attracts a very large lunch crowd. A cheery atmosphere.

Been coming here for years - best for pre-theatre dining without the 'fuss' (or high prices). Great burgers, calamari, fish tacos and any fish item. A hot date joint so go early if you want to make your curtain time - they can get a bit slow. Really a terrific casual place, sort of a sports/fishing bar!

A large group of us (30) had tickets to a show at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts and made reservations at Tarpon Bend Food and Tackle. We were extremely pleased with the choice. All the food was very good, the prices reasonable and our waitress, Christine, was a real trooper, handling our crowd with efficiency and a smile. This definitely a great place to go.

We were a group of 30 going to the Broward Center - not an easy task for any restaurant. The service was outstanding. Christine, Amy and the rest of the staff were attentive to our needs. The food was excellent - everyone raved about what they ate. The atmosphere is not fine dining, but the food is as good as any white tablecloth restaurant - at a reasonable price - especially during Happy Hour. This is the second time our group has been here before the theater and we'll be back again.
