Travel south from Islamorada across about a mile of roadway marked by a series of bridges and flanked on one side by the open Atlantic Ocean and on the other by the tranquil Florida Bay. On the bayside at the southern base of the fourth bridge and nestled among Coconut Palms and Australian Pines lies a taste of the Old Keys; a place which time has all but forgotten. It’s a hard U-turn to the right from the highway and a very short drive until you see the Hungry Tarpon Restaurant, and our driveway just before it. Find a place to park as you come down the drive; yes that weather-beaten building to your right actually is your destination — didn’t we mention a place forgotten by time? Robbie’s doors and windows open at 7 AM, earlier by appointment, and close at 8 PM; anytime between those hours we’re here to satisfy your every waterborne desire.
