“An absolutely delightful experience!”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

We stopped for a casual lunch on Palm Sunday. It was a marvelous experience in all regards. The atmosphere is delightful...a step back in time to the 20's & 30's! The food was exceptional and the service was equally exceptional. The entire staff gets my highest marks!

“Lovely inn and good food”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

Had lunch at this lovely restaurant with excellent food and drink. A wonderful view of the water was to be had and I suspect the accommodations are just as nice.

“Sanibel daytrip lunch”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

Staying on Sanibel Island and looking for a fun morning drive to an area previously unvisited, my husband and I drove the short distance to Pine Island. After a visit to the fascinating Randell Research Center across the road, we slipped into the Tarpon Lodge Restaurant, were immediately seated, and enjoyed the pretty view from the porch. Our server was attentive, and friendly. Had flavorful chowder to start, then mahi tacos and the substantial but light chef's salad with grilled shrimp. All flavors quite bright and fresh--husband said best fish tacos he had ever had. Finished with a shared slice of excellent key lime pie. This is a lovely and casual lunch setting in a serene environment that exudes "old Forida", right on the water, with a view of the boat dock and the many islands in the bay. Clearly Tarpon Lodge has high standards and they were met nicely during our visit. We agree we will visit again, this time perhaps to stay the night and enjoy this stellar chef's more elaborate dinner menu.

Thank you for your review. We feel very fortunate to have the Randell Research Center/Calusa Heritage Trail right across the street. Touring the Randell Research and then joining us for lunch sounds like a wonderful afternoon!

We look forward to welcoming you as our overnight guests!

“Beautiful setting, great food, good service”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Visited during the sunset hour and enjoyed the homey feel of this well established restaurant. The view is gorgeous, looking toward Useppa Island and the intracoastal waterway. Some good local, fresh menu items with a gastronomic flair.
