When I am about to feel hungry, I usually come here. I have eaten all their stuff, I think so,and every thing have a great taste.
whenever I decide to go there I usually order sea food as starters,as it is the best option,I like to take banana coconut cream pie as well,that's also one of my favorite.
So the one thing i actually feel,and management should work on it,and that is bar tender's behavior,rude,a little neglecting,
otherwise it's an awesome place to visit. recommended every one.

They serve three kinds of oysters ? NW Olympia, Gulf from Texas and NW Totten. I was impressed by the readily identifiable types, which apparently all receive high marks for sustainability.
Next, I perused the specials of the day. Swordfish and Wahoo sandwiches and white Gulf shrimp all seem to be good choices on the most popular consumer guides. The Chilean salmon in the herb-crusted salmon salad and catch of the day entrees seems to be a sustainable suspect to be avoided.
Concerned with the restaurant?s lack of a publicized commitment to seafood sustainability, I decided to go seafood-less and ordered the Gables Chop Salad. Holy vinegar Batman. The highly acidic vinaigrette dressing coupled with the sugary ?unsweetened? iced tea rendered my taste buds highly fatigued. I left with the same feeling that I get when I eat too many sour patch kids. @TeamSeafoodie
Went there with a few friends on a weeknight and didn't have a problem getting a table. Happy hour is buy one get one free on select drinks and mojitos are $3.50, "Mojito Madness."
The food is really great. Everything I've ever had here tasted fresh and was prepared well. I like their Raw Bar, the Seafood Sampler is great starter. My go-to dish is the Asian Tuna Burger. It's soo good. Order it rare.
Service is okay. Nothing I'd rave about, but then again, nothing I'd complain about.
The inside doesn't feel like the typical Miracle Mile restaurant, they did a nice job giving it a waterfront feel. The bar gets a bit loud on weeknights as the night wears on. And it's located at the end of Miracle Mile, so it's close to the parking garages.

The best part of the lunch today was the greeting from the hostess. I really have never been a fan however it is near the office and we did not want to drive. Anyways - I ordered the special, the shrimp stir fry. You would think for a $16 lunch plate it would taste better than a frozen meal. Our server was a ghost - she took the order and disappeared. I think I will stick to their happy hour - no more lunches for me.

Everything I've ordered here has been amazing. Highly recommended for the crab cakes. The bar also whips up some tasty drink creations or they have a good selection of beer. Parking is of course a problem (like everywhere else on miracle mile) but it's worth it and they are open pretty late on the weekends.

Now you know 2 for 1 always leads to a good time!! I have not tried the food at Tarpon Bend as of yet, but I will say they put on one heck of a good Happy Hour!! I love my Mojitos, and I will admit I am a huge snob on what I consider a good drink, (as all Connoisseurs should be.) One bartender made a very good drink, and one of the other gals did not. In conversation with the first gentleman I mentioned he made a better drink, and not only did he swap out the glass in front of me free of charge (and without a formal request I might add) but he made sure to personally serve my entire party for the rest of the night!! Excellent customer service on his part. I only wish I had thought to get his name!!

Whenever I want to eat somewhere that looks nice, but inexpensive I like coming here. The food is good, the service can be a little better. The place in general is pretty, its a very chill enviornment without the cost of somewhere pricey. The food is very good, despite not having a very large menu.

PRETTY GOOD TO HANG OUT WITH COMPANIES, TO DRING SOMETHING IN THE HAPPY HOURS, BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE, BEAUTIFUL PLACE.
THE FOOD IS NORMAL FOOD, NOTHING WOW... THE SERVICE IS AVERAGE... AND SOMETIMES THE BARTENDER (VERY RUDE, HE SHOULDN'T WORK WITH PEOPLE BUT WITH HIMSELF ONLY) LOOKS UPSET DURING THE HAPPY HOURS WHEN YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO DRINK 2 FOR 1... INCREDIBLE...
