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.

  • "Gourmet food while sitting on the beach next to ocean! Awesome"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "The food was great; the service was just average. No one ever came to fill water glasses--I drank my husband's too. We thought sitting outside to see the sunset would be great, but there were too many gnats and flies. We recommend you sit inside to eat and then go outside as the restaurant has special chairs set up so that inside guests can come out just to see the sunset."

  • "Truly enjoyed our meal! Whenever we fly into Naples we always go to the Turtle Club our 1st night there to see the beach, relax ,and enjoy the great food and atmosphere!"

  • "Still after 24yrs one of our favorites! Staff went above and beyond without hint of being put out by our group's needs and special requests! They also noted and made special efforts to celebrate our friend's 50th anniversary with a comp dessert of key lime pie with sentiment written on the plate! We had excellent meals all around for our group of 8. only thing to complain about was a bit too much saltiness on the shrimp sausage and grits. Apps of ceviche and calamari were excellent. Salads were great. Maybe a bit too much beets to Arugula ratio on the salad. But all in all well done. Thanks all for making our special evening the best."

  • "The experience of dining next to the beautiful Gulf of Mexico at the Turtle Club needs to be experienced at least once in your life. The menu is varied and every dish I have tried has been superbly prepared. The scene of watching the sun set cannot be beat. The wine and beverage lists are outstanding and plentiful. The service is outstanding and will make your visit memorable. A "must do" if you are in the Naples area (visiting or resident)."

  • "What a relax evening, with your-toes in the sand, enjoying the sounds of the gulf, the sunset, which was almost until the overcast rolled in. The only downside, which really wasn't a downside for us, (financially) our stay was just under 4 hours and only was able to get 2 rounds of drinks, server was attentive but not bothering surly left potential sales/gratuity on the table for establishment and herself. Overall she did an excellent job, food came out as ordered (with a whole lot of subs), promptly and she was very personable. Great job!!!!! Joe South Fork Grille"

  • "Amazingly comfortable shift from outdoors to indoors when storm came in. Waiter very helpful with food choices. Excellent service - food came quickly. Lovely wine. Appreciated valet service. Excellent food with very pleasing herbs and spices. Pears in salad were a bit green but offset by the best ever calamari. Would recommend highly."

  • "What an amazing find. I initially searched for restaurants on the water, and a few came up, but this one stood out. You are not sitting on a dock, or a patio here, you are actually on the beach; sand and all. The food menu is absolutely incredible. We started with the oysters turtlefellar, and a watermelon wedge salad. The watermelon was the wedge in this take on a wedge salad, and was absolutely delicious. For our main courses we had the fish platter, with a sampling of perfectly cooked fish, and the lobster meal. For dessert we had a delicious key lime pie. All of this, paired with a bottle of white wine, and we couldn't have asked for a better restaurant. Dress is resort casual, so come comfortable, but a little dressed up."

  • " We discovered your restaurant celebrating Mother's Day and again this past week. When the budget allows for a special meal, we certainly will be back! The valets, hostess, and servers were all wonderful. The special attention is much appreciated."

  • "Took two friends and it was raining. But the rain stopped just in time. Had a super sunset along with super food and a very nice server. As a realtor i eat here often and give gift cards. I sure wish they would give discounts. If you are coming in more than one car i suggest meeting at Publix or the local strip mall of your choice. This will make the parking easier and less expensive. On the weather.... you must take the good with the bad. There is about 50/50 space on inside vs outside seating. If it starts to rain it can really put a cramp on the evening. But when it is good it is fantastic. Sitting with your friends with a high quality large meal watching the sun going down with your toes in the sand."

  • "We took our 3 grandchildren to an early dinner, sat outside and then the kids played by the Ocean after dinner. The staff was wonderful, and the food was excellent. You cannot get a better beach side table in Naples."

  • "The Turtle Club offers outdoor seating that abuts the beach and offers a great view of the sunset. The menu offers options for seafood and meat lovers as well as possibilities for those who prefer not to eat meat. Service was good and food was tasty. The setting made it a lovely and special evening."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "An absolutely lovely evening with a very attentive waiter. The food was served quickly but not too quick with sufficient time to digest the last course. There was only one minus point and that was the amount of flies in the restaurant which after a while became very irritating. We would definitely go back and the food was well above other local hotels/restaurants."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "The food at Turtle Club is great. We really enjoy it for our special night out on vacation. The most notable feature, besides the excellent food is the stellar service and the incredible staff and how we'll the staff works together. Truly a credit to the restaurant."

  • "We were three couples who went to the Turtle Club for dinner. We had reservations for outside, but it was too hot so we sat inside. We received a table in the front by the window so we still had a great view. I ordered the Chilean Sea Bass that was excellent. Others ordered the swordfish that they said was terrific. Everyone had a great time with wonderful food."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "We ate inside; since we arrived early we were the only customers at the time. We ordered the Chowder and lobster bisque as appetizers and for the main course we had a grouper and Hogfish or hog snapper as they called it. The service was prompt and attentive; the food is pricey especially at the time of the year when the season is over. 34 $ for a small piece of fish is very steep. the grouper was a bit overcooked thus to dry, two minutes less would have been perfect. The taste of the chowder was a bit spicy and the bisque had no lobster in it. Overall I would go back if they would lower the prices for the off season periods like many restaurants do in town. I recommend the place if you are willing to pay high prices. "

  • "Not sure what all the fuss is about. The food was mediocre. It was not hot, some items in the potato hash were burnt. Our server was very good. I was hoping to make this a place to return to again and again, but it isn't. Once was enough."
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "The service and food prep were extraordinary. It seemed even the flies had good manners outside. The wine was chilled and served professionally. The waitress was very cordial and treated us to a complimentary dessert. It was an ocean backdrop that will be a lasting memory."

  • "I have lived in Naples for over 25 years and I have never heard or been to the Turtle Club. It was recommended to me by a co-worker. After reading about eating on the beach while watching the sun set, I knew that was the place for me.. I enjoyed everything so much, and the best part having my feet in the sand while eating dinner was divine! The prices are a little high, but not enough to keep us away. I know my kids would love to eat there, can't wait to bring them. To me it is a place to go to off season, I can imagine what it would be like in season!"

  • "This was the perfect spot for my wife and I to celebrate our special occasion. We sat outside and the weather could not have been better! Beautiful sunset. We are very particular about our food and we were not disappointed! The oysters, kale caesar, sea bass, and key lime pie were stars. Reservations are a must."

  • "This was our first time here, and it was more than expected, from the valet service to the wonderful service. Don't be misled by the first impression of plastic chairs in outdoor seating, because the food and service are 5 star. Fancy seats just don't fair well in the sand, since you are eating right on the beach. We had front row, and the view was superb. You can't go wrong with the oysters turtlefeller, calamari, or the apple pie, they are the best we've ever had. Prices are very reasonable as well. Great dining experience. Can't wait to go back, and even bring some friends!!!"

  • "Outside dining at sunset is spectacular. Do not pass up the Oyster Turtlefellars. Everything is delicious... They are truly memorable. Turtle Club is our "go to" place!"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Delicious food but overpriced for my working class budget. Beach front dining is amazing...especially at sunset! $29.00 for 13 raw oysters that were 'dried out' and not released from the shell.... I expected better than that. Over all, if you want to drop some ca$h on a special occasion, this is a good once in a lifetime place to do it. The people watching is interesting as well!"
