Hungry Tarpon Restaurant Review

: It looks like a simple, concrete-block building (it is), but this restaurant has been an important destination since 1976. What opened as a casual breakfast-lunch stop evolved into as fancy a restaurant as it gets in these parts, with a notable wine list, too. After the departure of the longstanding, fine dining chef, the menu shed some of its higher-end items and meets in the middle ground of good food and affordability, with conch chowder, a five-pepper dip with chips, and seared jumbo scallops in Key lime butter sauce as starters. Overall, island flavors abound, from a shrimp taco to a tuna “roll” of roasted vegetables and Asian seasonings rolled inside yellowfin tuna, with casual choices like the Matecumbe fish sandwich or skirt steak with black beans and rice. Complete the meal with a stroll down the pier to watch the tarpon shimmer.
