Tarpon Tavern's Culinary Experts Keep it Simple

Locals flock to the tavern on a weekly basis, but for those who aren't up to date on the delectable offerings, we've got you covered.

Don't let the headline fool you. Of course, the simple dishes on Tarpon Tavern's menu are appealing, but the full-on main courses are a culinary force to be reckoned with.

From sandwiches (pollo pesto, pastrami ruben) and pasta (seafood linguini, chicken portabella) to salads (crispy chicken) and flatbreads (seafood, tomato-basil), Tarpon Tavern can satisfy any audience. 

One of my favorite things about dining out is the appetizer portion of the menu. Sometimes, I'll order two or three starters and a small salad to get my fill. Of course, there is some sharing involved. 

On a recent visit to Tarpon Tavern, I did just that with a basket of fries ($3.50), veggie quesadillas ($7.50) and a side salad ($2.25). Like most of the dishes, the fries at Tarpon Tavern have a unique twist. The fries are topped with parmesan cheese and rosemary and are served with Tarpon sauce (a thousand-island type concoction).
