This restaurant is on a narrow road on the northwest side of Pine Island in a historical Native American Calusa mound-building area called Pineland. The grounds are manicured and the restaurant is on the elegant side with a white Hemingway-esque feel. Yet it's not very expensive at all for lunch. Across the well-maintained lawn is the bay with docks for...

My husband and I are new to the area and were exploring Pine Island when we stumbled across the Tarpon Lodge around lunch time. We were seated on the enclosed veranda and enjoyed a marvelous relaxed lunch with a view of the water. I had a cup of corn/crab chowder and wished I'd ordered a bowl it was so good!...

I have lived in Palm Beach County Florida for 56 years and never knew this hidden treasure was just across the state. The lodge was originally built in 1926 and I was lucky enough to have a room in the original structure. My bed was very comfortable and I loved the hardwood floors and original woodwork. The restaurant is easily...

Yes you can drive to Tarpon Lodge on Pine Island, that's not the best way to arrive. The boat ride to the lodge is superb. Once there your quickly realise this is one of the better places to eat on the Waterside. It's proper service where the food is presented immaculately.

We traveled to Pineland to have lunch at Tarpon Lodge. We each had something different for lunch and every item was very good. The blue crab and corn chowder was wonderful and should be a taste treat fro everyone. Tarpon Lodge cheese burger was juicy and tasty; just what you want a burger to taste like. Fresh fish was cooked...

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your recent dining experience with us. While our popular scallop dishes are offered each evening while supplies last the waitress should have known how many orders we had remaining when she was at the table taking your order. We apologize that this was not the case. We do have an upgrade charge...

This old-time Florida property was gracious and the restaurant service done very nicely. The vegan offerings could have included a pasta dish had I given them warning a day or two in advance. They offered to do a grilled vegetable dish, but I opted for the Pine Island Sound Salad which contained spring mix greens, cucumber, red onion,grape tomatoes, Kalamata...

This place is like a step back in time, started as a fishing lodge 90 years ago, and is still going strong. Located way out on the mostly undeveloped Pine Island, it is peaceful and beautiful. There are some rooms upstairs above the restaurant in the main building but I think maybe the nicest rooms are in the Island House...

Our party of 6 were treated to excellent service and meal that made everyone very happy. The Dinner Catch was American Snapper and although not cheap, was fantastic. I would not change a thing. There was one issue with the menu. The scallops actually came with Shrimp but that is not mentioned. So if you can not eat shrimp, be...
