Nary a frat house or sorority row in sight, but Tarpon Bend's ample customer base sure looks and acts the part. Himmarshee's busiest pickup spot and happy-hour hangout finds reggae and cover bands to regale the white-collar crowd.Since it opened more than a decade ago, Tarpon Bend has anchored that bustling corner alongside the train tracks. It isn't relinquishing that spot anytime soon. Lunch is all pretty faces and power suits, with the menu offering genuinely interesting spins on de rigeur SoFla seafood items: a dolphin (mahi-mahi) Rueben, for instance. Dinner isn't fancy, but it sure isn't typical bar food, either; it's heavy on - what else? -- seafood. Late nights, and especially on weekends, the focus shifts to the bar, and Tarpon brims with a young, sophisticated crowd -- a sampler platter of the wild, the beautiful and the damned, partying the night away.
Get two-for-one drinks Sunday through Thursday 4:00pm to 7:00pm. Friday 4:00pm to 10:00pm. Saturday from 4:00pm to 9:00pm.
$3.50 Mojitos all day Sunday.
Every Monday starting at 5:00pm Tarpon Bend offers $5 cheeseburgers.

As soon as we rule the world, we'll raze all the condos and build a string of tiki bars right on the beach so that you can spend happy hour properly... barhopping along the sand. Until then, the best place to de-stress after work is right in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Despite its urban location, Tarpon Bend creates a laid-back, outdoorsy vibe by displaying fish sculptures and world records from the International Game Fish Association. Furthermore, it has sidewalk seating, giant windows, and a... More »
Like drag racers whose extreme speed sustains yet may destroy them, chicken wings live and die by grease. What are wings without it? Scalding orange lipids turn ordinary chicken into one of the great blessings our world has to offer. Yet who among us has not winced upon being served a plate of wings whose drippings could be mistaken for those in his oil pan? The wing should spark, the wing should burn, the wing should sting. The wing, however, should not pop like a boil between your teeth.... More »
So you're drunk, having lots of fun, and you spill a greasy something down your shirt. It's after midnight. What's a slob to do? Well, if you are at the downtown hot spot Tarpon Bend, pick up one of the $15 all-cotton T's in the front. There's a pun-opoly to choose from, emblazoned with the following: "Nice Bass," "Master Baiters Welcome," "Spawn Till Dawn," "Best Piece of Tale in Fort Lauderdale," and that old classic, complemented by a picture of a very large fish: "Size Matters."

The point of happy hour has never been happiness. The point is excess -- more for less. So we like our happy hours dressed in something more than fried and something other than chicken wings. Tarpon Bend fits the bill on all counts. Drinks are two-for-one from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, but we prefer Tuesdays. That's when you can order a pound-and-a-quarter lobster for $9.99 or all the fried catfish you can eat for $14.95 or another equally great deal (depending on the season). On... More »
