My husband and I visited for the first time since we are new to Florida. He had the Drunken Pork and I had the Shrimp Tacos. They were both delicious. Be sure to ask for the cucumber sauce to go with tacos. Yummy! The atmosphere is so relaxing. We sat out on the dock and enjoyed watching the birds and the boats. We will definitely be back. Hopefully, Amber will wait on us again. She was awesome. Thanks Amber for the great service.

We were a group of 20 ladies. Food excellent as usual. Given the size of our group, all our lunches were delivered promptly. Kudos to the chef. Outstanding service from our servers, Erica and Bernie and other staff.

What a Florida eatery ought to be. Tasty food served on a lakefront patio with polite, attentive wait staff. The solid management shows through here. Running a restaurant isn't easy, but these folks are doing it right.

I was at Tarpon Turtle on Monday--my first visit on a whim, as I was travelling between meetings and needed a late lunch. As someone who does not like chain restaurants, I was excited to find this place. The alligator sausage on a stick and the spicy shrimp appetizers were great--the two together made for a great sized lunch.

Even better was the attentive service from the staff, especially my server Alexandra. She was helpful with recommendations (she admitted she had not tried the alligator, but says she plans to :-) . She always ensured my water was full, with no straw (at my request). And she seemed genuinely happy to work there and serve me. A true asset for the restaurant.

If I am ever through this next of the woods again I will definitely make a stop. Great job.
