We'd have given Tarpon a solid 4 stars at the beginning of our visit. Somewhere after our appetizer course, our server checked out. My hubs waited 30 min. for a bottle of beer, we waited almost that long for our check and then finally took the check and stood at the register to be able to leave. The food was... More

Good selection of food, in line with local prices. Good selection of wine and beer. Open air bar, great breeze. Conch fritters were very tasty, my wife's first try and won't be the last. My only issue, one patron was smoking a cigar, staff allowed, not sure what local statutes are, but would have enjoyed more if the cigar wasn't... More

There were some very rowdy patrons yelling inappropriate language for all the Holiday Inn crowd children in the place. I asked for another table and we were promptly seated outside. I could still hear the loudmouths from there, but it was tolerable. I ordered a "build your own" pizza with Sausage, Mushrooms and Peppers. The sausage was not Italian sausage.... More

We sat at the bar for a last lunch on a holiday Monday. Our server, Jeremy, was pleasant. Tarpon harbor was not very busy. The beer taps had a nice range of selections pils, amber wheat, APA, and IPA. We ordered lunch which was very uneven, quality-wise. The grilled fish sandwich with cole slaw & fried was a decent portion... More

Right behind the hotel was this cozy family restaurant. It was well maintained and had loads of good food. The staff was also very attentive.

Upon recommendation from the front desk at the Holiday Inn (and friends who live down here), we tried out the new and improved Tarpon Creek restaurant. Although there was a 45 minute wait for a table, we slipped around to the bar and found seating immediately. We ordered up an appetizer and a couple of pizzas. Both were served hot... More

We brought fresh caught snapper with us and they cooked it 2 ways for us - blackened and grilled. The blackened was awesome! We had the mashed potatoes, spinach and vegetable medley, along with the watermelon salad and a few appetizers: Cuban rice balls, conch fritters, and filet sliders. All the food was very good. Service was a tad slow.

We found this restaurant by word of mouth. It is hidden behind Holiday Inn Express. We made 2 visits because it was so good. The atmosphere is great for catching a moon rise. Crispy Ahi, Calamari, Cuban Rice Balls, Filet Sliders, Fish Tacos, Grilled Snapper, Grilled Grouper and really good Key Lime Pie. Shervin and Myriam were excellent servers. After... More

We came here twice for lunch during our two weeks in the Keys. Both times our meals and drinks were very good, and our server was friendly, informative, prompt and attentive. Both times we chose a table overlooking the water, which we appreciated. I had a beer-battered fish and chips meal on one visit, and a blackened mahi sandwich the... More

We saw that Taron Creek had been voted Best Pizza in Marathon so we ordered two pizzas with sausage, pepperoni, and extra cheese to go. When we opened them at home there was only pepperoni and both were very oily. Taste was only fair and I would probably not order takeout there again.

Our Apologies for not getting your order right for you, we obviously missed the mark. I do hope that you give us another try. We have been voted "Best Pizza in Marathon" and normally have great reviews for our Pizza. We would like to make it up to you and show you how good it really can be. Thank you... More
