    Crowded bar with a good selection of draft beers, including some local beers. Upstairs there's a game where you can drunkenly swing a hook on a metal fish.

    Blackened Mahi Mahi was great, especially with the sauce to cool the spice a little.

    Nary a frat house or sorority row in sight, but Tarpon Bend's ample customer base sure looks and acts the part.

    Came on a busy night, servers were slow, didn't check up on us frequently, overcharged for the drinks thinking we wouldn't notice. The manager had to step in, it was that bad.

    Don't be fooled by the craft beer sounding name of Blue Moon. It is actually a product of MillerCoors. Have a Sam Adams or Sierra Nevada instead.
