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.

We went to our favorite Bonita Springs restaurant, Tarpon Bay at the Hyatt Regency Coconut to celebrate my husbands 60th (ouch!) birthday with family and friends. From appetizers to main course (delicious grilled fresh flounder, fantastic steak, jumbo shrimp) to dessert, this dinner was fabulous! Thanks to Rudy our server and Chef Rich for an amazing dinner!!

Saturday night 8 "locals" had dinner - mostly disappointed. Setting was nice,on a cool evening. Service was good in the beginning then the restaurant became busier and service slowed. The food, main reason to be here, was at best average. One Salmon and one Sea Bass were to the liking of the diner, One steak was too rare and had... More

Expected much of this seafood restaurant at the Hyatt Regency hotel. Especially as they claim to be more innovative. Reality is a typical standard American fish restaurant with big portions. Unfortunately our waitress was not the best as well.

We absolutely loved the brunch and cant wait to go back for dinner. There is a reason why Tarpon Bay was rated as one of the best brunches in the Fort Myers area.

The bacon wrapped grouper is absolutely incredible. The first taste hooked me and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. Three of us had this dish and all really enjoyed it. The fourth member of our party had the black grouper which was also excellent. The ceviche appetizers are also great. Recommend the tuna, shrimp and conch ones. Service was outstanding. Henry...

Staying at adjoined hotel Coconut Point Hyatt Regency, decided to venture out first night there to something on the resort and could not have been more pleased, the seafood is fresh and cooked to perfection, not over seasoned and allows the quality of the seafood to be tasted.
