We had a lovely and filling lunch at Tarpon Turtle. The chicken tender boat was very plentiful. The tenders were just that: moist and tender and yummy. The bacon avocado burger was cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. Our server, Danielle, was professional, friendly, timely, and...pleasant. We never felt rushed, forgotten, or pressured into making any choices. A tasty meal was made even more pleasant by our waitress. Thank you, Danielle and Tarpon Turtle!More

It’s a cute restaurant on the water. Not crowded so didn’t understand why service was so terrible. Cobb salad was great.,Chicken sandwich was chewy..Mentioned this to the server who could care less.

We originally intended to have dinner outside, but the very loud music coming from the speakers would have made conversation very difficult. I had the grouper dinner with Caribbean corn and teriyaki broccoli. It was delicious.

The prices were very high for the frozen garbage they served dinners started at like 20 and went into the high 30's , nothing was fresh and you didn't even get bread and butter or a small salad for these prices. The fried food was...just dripping with oil it was disgusting . this is too bad because the wait staff was very nice and the restaurant was nice and location was great. Now if they could get a chef who could cook and serve fresh food plus if your gonna charge those high prices give us at least a small salad with our dinner. When the waitress told us the gator bites (an app) had no gator they were just hush puppies AND THEY WERE CHARGING $17 FOR THEM, I almost died laughing That should have told me what was to come. I sent my meal back and ate when I got home as we had ordered the fish bites for an app and boy for the price we got next to nothing but then again they were so filled with oil we didn't want more.More

Came here today (11/01/22, 2ns attempt) after trying twice to find its location. Hard to find...until you find it and then it is ridiculously close and just off 19 in Tarpon. It was h/c accessible and good for a wheelchair. New hostess was young and...sweet. Found a nice table on the outside deck and with a nice breeze on a warm day. Wife had a "Lakeside Paradise" drink and I had their Pilar Rum Runner with an extra shot of that same Papas dark rum. Great. We each had salads, one Florida Salad and I had a "crunch bowl" with the fish chunks of the day (Mahi). Very nice. The Manager "Tony" came along to touch base. We shared our disappointment that the menu states there are red onions in the FL Salad - he informed us that they switched to the white onions because their batch of red were not good looking. We suggested they change the menu (which he said was coming) to illustrate the change; the server did not know this change, it seemed. All in all it was a nice experience by the water. We WILL be back. Thanks to all and Server Norbert.More

Food has gone downhill. Wrap was falling apart and filled with cheddar cheese. Onion strings were burned. My friend's grouper sandwich wasn't any better. Had lunch here two weeks ago and had a similar experience. No thanks.

Awesome service and seafood. Beer is ice cold. If you are lucky enough, get Ally as your server. She is beautiful, and the best server I have seen in some time. From everything I saw, management really has their act together in this restaurant. Can't...wait to go again when I am in the area!More

We enjoyed a casual Saturday lunch by the lake at Tarpon Turtle. There is lots of action to watch on the lake, and boaters can dock and come in to eat. Large menu selection. We tried the Fish Tacos and the Grouper Sandwich. Service was...very friendly, and we’ll definitely be back. Recommend for couples and families.More

Great view of lake. Wonderful mojo pork and coconut shrimp. Entrees are around 15-20 dollars. This is my first or second time back since COVID.

Today we celebrated a birthday during lunch time at The Tarpon Turtle. It was our first time here and we all enjoyed it very much. The Bloody Mary's are to die for. Robust, smoked salted rims, full slice of bacon, olives and a celery stick!!...Awesome!! We had the Cobb and Wedge Salads. They were both fine dining quality at a reasonable price. The views are priceless! Their chicken wings are grilled to perfection. The Jerk and garlic parmesan were our favorites. We were able to score one of their individual Tiki Huts to dine in and it was waterside. Just fabulous with all the wildlife just beneath us. We even saw turtles 🐢 and alot of them! Our server was ⭐️ Yolanda ⭐️ and she was top notch! Ask for her, you will not be disappointed. She even surprised us with a beautiful birthday dessert on the house❤️ We are excited to return here and hope to spend a little more time hanging out and enjoying the sights, sounds and cocktails🍸More

Our son was married on Clearwater Beach, and the officiant recommended this restaurant. We were not disappointed. We were greated very professionally and kindly stating there would be a short wait. After 10 minutes we were brought to a lovely shaded table, overlooking the water....The waitress was wonderful, kind and professional. I or6a Mai Tai that was huge and yummy. We had a blue Heron in the water right below us, and another large bird on the dock. ( I love birds). I ordered chicken wings and a Ceaser salad. One of the best dressings for the salad, I have ever had! The grilled wings were good too. Every one had a different entree and all enjoyed them. Great service, food, and setting. Highly recommend this restaurant.More

I would rate this restaurant a 0 if I could!!! The SUPPOSED Fresh Fish was grouper and I decided to order it even tho it was $33 for an 8 oz portion size with 2 sides… because it was SUPPOSED to be fresh but it...was NASTY, RUBBERY, FLAVORLESS and FROZEN!!!! I am a Florida native and a fisherwoman and I know the difference between fresh and frozen fish!!!!!! Plus the sides were terrible!!! I will NEVER go there again and tell anyone I can NOT TO WASTE THEIR $$$!!!!More
