Very nice meal. Would like to stay here as a get away. Brochures showed this is a hot spot for local entertainment as well. Very cozy setting. We walked the ground before eating here. Had been told about this restaurant, would probably not necessarily have chosen it had we not been told about it.

We stopped for lunch at the Lodge and it was awesome. Each of us in the group of 4 had a different entree and they were all super. Price was very reasonalbe for being so remote and the place had amazing old world charm and service. Great place to enjoy the view of the gulf.

We had a truly great experience at Tarpon Lodge, and most definitely will return. First we were greeted by very welcoming staff. Our room was cozy, with a nice view and plenty of natural light. Surprisingly it was quiet as well, even though it is directly above the bar on the main level. The highlight of our visit was dinner!... More

The lodge itself was built in the 1920s, but we stayed in the newer Island house which is on stilts. We had a waterview room with a balcony overlooking the well tended grounds and the docks. Georgeous! The room was small but adequate. The kingsized bed was quite comfortable and everything was very clean. It is a great place to... More

We stayed at Tarpon Lodge on Pine Island in December. What a great little piece of "old world Florida." We had owned a canal lot on Pine Island for several years, but had never stayed overnight. What a delight this place was. Only 12 units in the motel section. Expertly maintained grounds, waterfront rooms, friendliest staff anywhere. We will be... More

We had eaten atTarpon Lodge before and were anxious to bring our East Coast 'foody friends' over here to try the restaurant out as well. In the past we were always pleasantly surprised by the menu options and cuisine and we have very fond dining memories. Unfortunately we had a different experience this time around. Not sure if they have... More

We took a road trip and wanted to visit the island known as Pine Island. Little did we know that there are three "communities" on Pine Island, Pineland, St. James City and Bokeelia. We took the time to visit all the areas, but we were truly in search of the famous "Tarpon Lodge". It has been there since 1926 and... More

This was a wonderful little get away after Christmas. Although it's Old Florida our room was lovely and updated with a classy tropical theme and a little balcony to watch the sunsets. The staff was wonderful, especially Darleen in the office. The restaurant was awesome....fresh seafood! Such a beautiful and relaxing place. We can't wait to go back!

I walked in this amazing little corner of what was to be a slice of Old Florida hidden away -- could not believe it. I thought I was going to see Ernest Hemmingway perched at the bar!

Nothing I’ve experienced to date can compare with the peace and serenity I experienced during my stay at the Tarpon Lodge on beautiful Pine Island. As we got closer to Tarpon Lodge we passed Eagle and Osprey Nests, Palm Tree and Mango Farms, Cattle Ranches and the local post office. What you won't find on Pine Island is a traffic... More
