We usually visit on Tuesday when they have 2 for 1 fish and chips, which are excellent. Sometimes on weekends they have a band in the parking lot. You can bring your dog to the outdoor seating area. This restaurant is located along the Pinellas Bicycle Trail so it's interesting to watch the cyclers roll by.

We stopped in after an afternoon touring Tarpon Springs. This place is an absolute gem ! It came highly recommended by a friend, and we quickly found out why ! The staff are very friendly and attentive. We went on a Tuesday and it was fairly quiet. The pub offers daily specials and Tuesdays was 2 for 1 fish and... More

We ate there on a trip to Nat'l Championship game. Eating outside with live music in January was a real treat. Waitress was extremely personable and food was great. We had Dang, Dang Shrimp, black bean soup, fish sandwich, and philly cheese sandwich. Every item was incredible!! Beer was great too. A must for this area.

This place never disappoints. Great food, drinks and service every time. Burgers are good and so are the fish and chips! Nice outdoor seating area for beautiful Florida days and nights.

We have frequented the Tavern on numerous occasions and consider it one of our favorite local restaurants. The food is very good and they have a good selection of beers on tap (sorry liquor drinkers but they only serve beer and wine). The indoor seating is cozy and reminiscent of some of the taverns one might find in more northern... More

If you are feeling run over by the Sponge Docks or have completed the antiques crawl this is a good spot to drop in a for a beer or glass of wine and a bite to eat. I will admit the chef surprised me one time with monkfish which was a treat. Avoid all you can eat fish and chips... More

It is an ok trip. Crew is nice but the trip is short and seems pointless. Not a whole lot going on with this trip and it is really short so i questiom the value. With a larger group you might be better off renting your own boat for the day or for half a day and doing your own... More

Back in Florida for the holidays and no trip would be complete without a visit to the Tarpon Tavern. It was amazing again! We started with the Gorgonzola Wings and they were delicious! The Stacked Burger was delicious and more than enough for one. The fish tacos were a hit too. The seafood chowder in the bread bowl was exceptional.... More

I've visited TT plenty of times. Never had a bad meal, and daily specials make you want to come back to try new things.
