A word from The Turtle Club - Naples
The Turtle Club Restaurant is Naples’ most charming & intimate beachfront restaurant, where guests experience gracious hospitality & great coastal cuisine in an upscale casual atmosphere. The setting is spectacular – the restaurant is located on the grounds of the Vanderbilt Beach Resort directly on the beach. Guests dine close to the beautiful Gulf of Mexico & enjoy the sights and sounds of the sea, including beautiful sunsets. The cuisine is equally fantastic – serving only the freshest seafood & steaks with a core menu that includes something from everyone. Weekly specials combine the best of old & new world culinary styles with touches of Mediterranean, Caribbean, Asian & Southern American cuisine. The Turtle Club was voted the best Waterfront Dining Restaurant in Naples 2011. Online reservations are available for dinner only. Reservations are not needed for lunch. We will do our best to honor online requests for outdoor seating but cannot guarantee seating at outdoor tables.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "One of my favorite restaurants! We brought a big group on Easter and everything was great except that my dinner was forgotten. Our server never returned so I had to flag a busboy and 20 min later my dinner was delivered. We were given a key lime pie but no apology. "

  • "There is no other place on the beach like the Turtle Club. It is something we look forward to every year. Casual but elegant dinning. Where you can watch the sun set and enjoy a coctail. Food delicious, service excellence. It is $$$$ but worth every penny. We had Easter dinner there & it was perfect timing. "

  • "Unfortunately, this was our third time there and the second time the weather was not conducive to comfortable outside dining. Despite the weather screens, and heaters earlier this year, we found it uncomfortable to enjoy our meal comfortably on the back deck. While the food was very good, the cost of the meal ($$$), the need for reservations so far in advance and not knowing the weather conditions, we will likely not be going back to the restaurant anytime soon."

  • "If you want to watch a beautiful sunset, this is the place to be. The food is good and the sunset is even better. This was our second visit to the Turtle Club. We had a group of six and three of us had the lobster special. The lobster was a little tough, but tasty. Those who had fish thought it was an A - not an A+ but an A. The service was good - as usual. This place has great views and good enough food. We'll come back for sure."

  • "My husband and I were on our Babymoon and ate at The Turtle Club for dinner. We requested to be seated outside so we could watch the sunset. All the food was absolutely amazing. We had the Shrimp and Crab Napoleon for an appetizer. It was almost too pretty to eat! It was the freshest, most delicious seafood dish I have ever tasted. I had the lobster and my husband had the Sea Harvest for our entrees. Both were cooked perfectly and delicious. We were able to watch the sun set into the ocean and it truly was beautiful. My only complaint was that a bunch of inconsiderate people were standing in the way of the sunset. But obviously that wasn't the restaurant's fault! Our waitress was very friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant!"

  • "This was recommended to us before we left NYS, we were also told to make a reservation as soon as possible, which I was glad we did because it took us one month to get in. This is a great place to have dinner and watch the sun set. If you sit outside you can have your toes in the beautiful Naples sand while having an excellent dinner."

  • "We made our reservation's 7 weeks prior to the date of reservation as we were not able to get a reservation at the christmas holiday. We were visiting from out of town. It was a rainy evening, understandable they were a tight on space due to the ambiance being the beach. We were able to be seated inside the restaurant. We had 3 children and 3 adults. It was obvious in the beginning the entire staff had issues with children. We surely were not in any way the only families in the restaurant with children. As a paying customer I knew exactly what the cost of the meal was going to be and had been looking forward to the dining here for well over 4 months. Our bill was $237 and we tipped $60. Don't prejudge."

  • "We chose to dine on the beach giving us a perfect view of the ocean and sunset. The cool breeze kept us quite comfortable. Any later in the season and we would have eaten inside. I ordered a delicious salad served chilled and garnished with lightly browned pecans. My entrée, the Chilean sea bass was delicious. It was so tender it melted in my mouth. My desert, turtle pie, had a slight "freezer" taste but was still tasty. Service was efficient. Suggestion: make your reservations early! We made ours in February for April."

  • "The most important reason to enjoy the Turtle Club for a special occasion dinner is to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the sun setting into the Gulf of Mexico. Fellow diners need to be sure to stay seated to allow all to enjoy the view."

  • "I had a great experience celebrating my birthday at the Turtle Club while watching the sun set over the beautiful gulf. The walkway to the restaurant was lit with tiki torches surrounded by orchids and beautiful plants, opening to great view of the beach and gulf waters. Service was excellent we had reservations but were a little early & was pleasantly surprised that our table was ready. Drinks were great, our Lump Crab appetizer delicious. Nice selection of local seafood and traditional dishes were served just right. Ended the night with a scrumptious Cream Brulee Cheesecake-Yum!"

  • "When making the reservation months ago, i requested a table on the beach. However, when we got there, i was told none were available because i had made the reservation on-line and not over the phone. They give priority seating to phoned in requests over on-line requests. Doesn't seem fair if i made request months ago on-line and somebody calls a week before and gets better seating over me!"

  • "We made a reservation far in advance and were looking forward to an above average experience. We were seated near the bar in a 'not so ideal' location. I ordered two of the house 'specialties': the fish chowder and the Sea Harvest entrée. The chowder was so thick and so full a cream I found it un-consumable - more pudding then chowder. The Sea Harvest lacked seasoning of any kind and was a bland dish. On the positive, our server was excellent and we were seating immediately upon arrival. We order Rombauer Chardonnay and it was very reasonably priced. Valet parking makes for an easy 'in and out'."

  • "We requested a table outside with a view of the water and they put us at a busy aisle inside. The table was not what we wanted to be. The food was great and the service was great but we were very disappointed in out table location. We asked the restaurant twice for a different table and they told us because we booked the reservation on open table, they could put us where they had an "open table". I will not book my next reservation on open table because of this."

  • "Turtle Club was a highlight of my birthday celebration along with having good friends to share the party. Food is wonderful, service is great and sunset was spectacular. What could be better than having a cocktail and a delicious dinner by sunset and then candlelight. Love it!"

  • "We spent a very cold evening on the beach area, after the panels were put in place to keep out the cold we had the unfortunate experience of sitting next to the area between panels. The wind was awful and it was all in all less than acceptable."

  • "Lobster Bisque soup was very tasty. Roasted Salmon well prepared. Turtle Club dessert very good We chose inside seating which came with limited view. Outside seating is very dependent upon weather and wind, but if you catch it right, could be good. This place has very pricey drinks. Trying to beat out New York pricing. But not all of us are New Yorkers and used to those charges."
