“Old Florida as I imagined”

Reviewed April 25, 2019 by ken4747 of Southborough, Massachusetts

As I walked in I did not feel I it was 2019 rather 1955. A wonderful throw back to a slower time.The restaurant is part of an inn over looking the water. Walking into the restaurant I thought a sport jacket would have been appropriate. We had a nice round table for our party of six. The service was excellent. The food was to everyone’s liking. Given the group size that indicates a variety of tastes. After the nice meal we walked around the grounds for a pleasant post meal saunter. There is parking along side the inn part of the Lodge. I plan to go back. It is not an inexpensive place, nor is outrageous price.

“Best place on Pine Island”

Reviewed April 20, 2019 by shelbylou of Kasota, Minnesota

Wonderful food, service and view. Excellent blue crab and corn chowder, Key lime martinis, shrimp salad, everything was good. Just a few minutes from Alden Pines golf course. Prices are comparable to the rest of the eateries on Pine Island except it’s white table cloths and excellent food and service. Went here for lunch numerous times during our month on the island.

“Fantastic food and sunset view!”

Reviewed February 21, 2019 by Linda P of Elizabethton, Tennessee

We wanted a special dinner for my sister’s birthday and this place was definitely the right choice! My brother-in-law and I both had the fettuccine with fresh mussels and they were melt-in-your-mouth delicious! All of us were more than delighted with our meals; the service was impeccable as were our surroundings! And the sunset on the gulf water ended our day perfectly

“Gourmet Dining in a Relaxed and Casual Atmosphere”

Reviewed October 2, 2018 by Neil P of Cape Coral, Florida

My wife and I have been eating at the Tarpon Lodge Restaurant for many years now and have never been disappointed with the food or service. We recently went for dinner with my wife’s uncle, who was visiting us from Germany, as the Lodge is a very special old Florida place.
This is definitely the best restaurant on Pine Island, as well as one of the top restaurants in the Fort Myers/Cape Coral area. If you’re in the neighborhood and want a great meal, definitely give it a try.

As we were seated on the covered patio we were totally excited about the old Florida charm and the magnificent views. We were soon entertained by our server, Julian, who was one of the top servers I have ever encountered. He explained the specials with mouth watering descriptions that turned out to be true. The menu has a good assortment of appetizers as well as entrees. We supported our choices with a South African merlot that was superb. Some nice dessert choices however we were full and declined. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
