Our apprehensions were definitely put to rest at Tarpon Bay. Appetizers incuding the outstanding alligator , average ceviche of snapper and grouper were our first courses. However, the entree took the gold with Ahi blackened tuna atop rice and spears of bok choi. Our server, Josh, made our visit special and guaranteed a return visit.

What a fabulous evening we had dining at Tarpon Bay at the magnificent Hyatt Coconut hotel in Bonita Springs. We were able to get a last minute reservation and were very pleased that we could. We started our meal with the colossal shrimp cocktail. They were enormous and cook to perfection? Along with our appetizers the warm, fresh bread was... More

Lovely meal and nice atmosphere. Very convenient if staying in the Hyatt Coconut Point Resort. I had the gulf shrimp and my husband had the filet mignon. Very good.

Overall our experience was very good and the food for the most part was delicious. However, the Stone crab claws were virtually frozen thus more difficult to eat and not flavorful. The king crab legs, while tasty, are a bit overpriced for what you get and the sauce that accompanied them did not benefit the overall taste experience you would... More

The Bacon wrapped grouper with beet risotto was perfect! A crab cake that was actually 80% crab meat!! Fine dining in a casual setting.

We had a nice evening at Tarpon Bay. We sat on the patio on a Monday evening when the restaurant was nearly empty. Service was friendly and mostly good. The salads had too much dressing on them.The dinners arrived a bit unevenly with one side dish arriving well after all of the entrees. It would have been better not to... More

Incredibly fresh seafood, expertly prepared. Lots of choice available from the menu. Very good service - save a few minor details when the meals arrived. Try the crab cakes and the lobster mac and cheese. Both are fantastic value.
