    Tarpon Tavern: Good Bar and Tasty Food

    by charlenemixa Written Aug 11, 2014

    We've visited a couple of times and been impressed with this tavern in downtown Tarpon Springs. My husband really likes their selection of beers on tap. Our first visit was after they opened on St. Patrick's Day and they had a fantastic Corned beef and cabbage! Huge portions! They also had Innis & Gunn on tap which is a favorite beer, we had while in Scotland.

    On our other visits we have found the beers to continue to be excellent . The food is delicious! Definitely more upscale choices than regular bar food. My husband enjoyed the Seafood pasta and had plenty for a take home. The fish tacos are also delicious. Since we are predominantly seafood eaters, we are very pleased with their menu choices of fish. Of course they have a wide selection of other items, too. This is now a place we enjoy stopping in for a drink or lunch or dinner. Plus for anyone traveling the Pinellas Trail it goes right in front of the Tavern. So you can bicycle, roller blade or walk and pop in for a brew or a bite to eat.

    Hella's: Delicious and Authentic

    by barrypanzer Written Jul 13, 2013

    Hella's is a great place to eat. Very authentic Greek food and desserts. The restaurant ambience and atmosphere is lovely. The service was just great. Our waiter was very helpful and attentive. We would definitely return if in the area again.

    Favorite Dish: Michael loved the shrimp sauteed in garlic butter. I loved the souvlaki and saganaki. Both were very delicious. Who doesn't like flaming cheese and sangria!

    Parthenon Greek Restaurant: Grilled Octopus and Gyros

    by atufft Updated Jun 2, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Actually, there are many really great Greek restaurants on the Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks, but my host recommended this one. We sat outside and watched the promenade of fishing boats and tourists. As an economical move, we ordered gyros, but then I noticed the grilled octopus available as an appetizer and couldn't resist ordering this. With some lemons and a couple of beers, we were all set. My friend didn't like the rubbery texture; I thought it tasted great. But, then if you've read my West African travel tips, you know I'll try anything at least once.

    Mama's Greek Cuisine - Please Close the Light!

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Jun 4, 2010

    Mama's is probably the biggest restaurant in Tarpon Springs. Though it is slightly off the main tourist track away from the water, it gets a huge crowd for lunch and dinner. During our first visit to Tarpon Springs, Mama's was very busy, but we decided on a different place by the water. On our second Tarpon Springs visit, we chose Mama's as our place to dine.

    We arrived from the street-side deck, but decided to eat inside where the air conditioning kept the temperature a bit cooler. We each had simple meals such as beef and lamb gyros (even the menu says to pronounce it "yeeros"!) and pork souvlaki sandwiches, each for around $6 plus drinks. They also serve lots of seafood, kabobs, Greek entrees and pastas.

    Parthenonas Restaurant & Bakery

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Sep 20, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Parthenonas Restaurant & Bakery is one of numerous Greek restaurants along the Tarpon Springs waterfront area. From the outside it looks slightly nicer than many of the other places along the Sponge Docks, with a few tables lining the sidewalk and the owner always present inviting customers in for a meal or dessert. Inside is pretty nice, but it has its elements that make it feel cheap such as frame photos of their desserts on the wall, and pictures of their meals above the door.

    I had the Mousaka Chef's Delight ($11), a casserole of beef, eggplant, potatoes, blended and baked with cheese sauce. Laura had the Chicken Souvlaki Platter ($10), a meal of pita, chicken, breast, onions, tomato and tzatziki sauce. Both meals were served with rice pilaf, peas, Greek style potatoes, and bread. We topped off our meal with a wonderful piece of baklava. Our meal was about $32 including drinks (Cokes with unlimited refills).

    The restaurant has a wide variety of lunches and dinners, beer and wine, and desserts.

    Mykonos Restaurant: Yummy authentic Greek food

    by mmyerspa Updated Aug 3, 2009

    Authentic Greek cuisine. Lots of lamb and ground beef options. I had the chicken breast stuffed with spinach and three cheeses, topped with Greek seasonings. Took half of it home, as it was very big. Must try the Greek potatos...roasted in lemon, oil, and Greek seasoning. The Greek salad is nothing to write home about; I much prefer the Greek salad at the Acropolis in Ybor and Tampa....they give you a triangle slice of feta, while my Mokonos Greek salad came with three small cubes.

    Favorite Dish: Greek potatos

    I forgot: You have to have something sweet

    by Erin09340 Written Sep 9, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a bakery down the street from the Mykonos and Santorini Restaurants. It's famous for their desserts. You can try virtually anything and it will be delicious. I'd recommend forgoing dessert in the restaurant, in favor of walking down the street to this place and having a cup of coffee with your dessert. You'll be glad you did.

    Santorini: Excellent Greek, delicious octopus

    by Erin09340 Written Sep 9, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Of the many greek restaurants in Tarpon Springs, my family and I are convinced that the best is Santorini. Their seafood is terrifically fresh, much of it locally caught. They make a fantastic broiled octopus.

    The portions are huge. My husband had enough leftovers to have two more meals.

    The restaurant is on the waterway and provides a lovely view of all the sponge boats.

    Favorite Dish: We started with the appetizer plate that included tarama salad, tzatiki, skordalia, olives, feta, and bread. All were delicious.

    Dad ordered the special of the day, which I believe was a lamb dish. I also had the lamb. Chris ordered a pasta seafood. We were all stuffed and quite pleased.

    The house red is a pretty good wine, but the house white should be avoided.

    There are one or two fancy Greek restaurants near the sponge docks with fine food and international reputations. Pappas is probably the best of those. But personally, I prefer the numerous little mom & pop places along the street -- like this one. The food is plentiful, good, and relatively cheap.
