    This is one of my favorite places. The bartenders are attentive and friendly. They have Stella and Guinness and other beers on tap and a small spattering of micro-brews. Read more

    This is the place to go for drink specials, burgers, and an excellent Happy Hour on Friday nights! Did I mention the burgers?! It might be one of the best burgers in town, and on Mondays it's only $5!

    One of the oldest and best eating spots and drinking spots in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Come on Mondays for the $5 burger, one of the best burgers in town.

    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.

    All speciality drinks, which they called Big FishDrinks not that good, mojito, skinny margarita, pomegranate martini "Pom Tini" Tarpon Bend Coral Gables have a better quality, well done drinks.
  • New Times Broward Palm Beach
    Nary a frat house or sorority row in sight, but Tarpon Bend's ample customer base sure looks and acts the part.

    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.
  • JuDe G.
    I mean it's alright... at one point we had to ask the bartender for a drink even tho our drinks were empty and we placed them in eye view, walked by us like 3 times before we had to ask her...
