The Turtle Club - Naples
Great time!We went for our anniversary and it was perfect. The outside seating is perfect to watch the sunset. The staff was very friendly and helping! We would definitely come again!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA place for a special evening outWe had a great time as we have in the past. The drinks were well made and served, the food ample and delicious (we had chowder and bisque, salads and then appetizers.) The service was very, very good. The ambience outdoors right at the edge of the beach afforded a lovely view of the Gulf and of the sun setting. Recommend booking at a time when ther sunset will be just after your meal. You can relax with coffee (or whatever) and watch nature's show. We've been inside in the past and loved the ambience there. We've celebrated our anniversary at "the Club" a few years now and love it as a special place!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy Anniversarywe've celebrated several wedding anniversaries here and will again.
The "sunset over the Gulf" is outstanding but, as always,
very crowded. It's bothersome that late arriving, non-dining
persons always crowd in front of seated dinners.
The food is good but pricy and the service, while not rushed,
always seems like we're finished too quick. Drinks,
salad, entrée, and dessert in under an hour.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMServer was very attentiveServer was very attentive and the whole night was great....food was amazing and with the view I recommend this restaurant to everyone that comes to town...6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Food & LocationThe location is as good as the food. One of the view restaurants left that are directly on the beach overlooking the gulf with outdoor seating as well. Most restaurants on the beach rely on their location not their food to draw customers but this is not
the case with the Turtle Club, we would patronize them at any location. The staff was gracious and efficient.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMTurtle clubEating on the sand at sunset, is a unique experience.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time atThis was our first time at the Turtle Club.

The snapper is excellent.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMEggselent!We booked to eat at the Turtle Club because we stayed at the Vanderbilt Beach Resort and also because we had read all the good reviews. We were not disappointed. The food was very good especially because it was different from the standard south Florida fare which we had experienced at most other restaurants! We will recommend the restaurant to friends!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!!This is one amazing restaurant. Great food and service...and even better sunset!!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFinally got a reservationFinally got a reservation for dinner on the beach for sunset ("in season" this requires planning weeks in advance, we went in May). It was as gorgeous as expected but this time of year the mosquitos and no-see-ums were brutal. My snapper was delicious and I would strongly recommend dinner here during the winter!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMTurtle Club has long beenTurtle Club has long been one of our favorite Naples restaurants. The food is consistantly and especially good in a locale where competition among restaurants is fierce. Inside dining has a warm and intimate atmosphere and the outdoor setting is one of the premiere spots to watch the sunsets over a cocktail and appetizer. No favorite from the menu, though I can say I've never had anything I considered hum-drum or that I would never try again. Service is normally crisp, friendly and knowledgable.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful late afternoonThe food was superb and the outside dining was simply wonderful. Very romantic and fun.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe so enjoy bringing out ofWe so enjoy bringing out of town guests to The Turtle Club for a unique outdoor dining experience.

We will go back on our next visit to Naples.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBest location in Naples. WonderfulBest location in Naples. Wonderful food and service and right on the beach.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent seafood entreesExcellent seafood entrees and great gulf of mexico sunset view. Server was friendly and attentive. One of the few public waterfront views left in Naples, The only problem is it is very difficult to get reservations due to the small seating capacity of the restaurant.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGirls tripNine of us went on a girls' trip and the Turtle Club was recommended as a great place for good food with a spectacular view. It was great. We had a terrific time, although the wind was quite strong that evening, but that was out of their control. Food was good, but not exceptional. We had a great time.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOutdoor seating along beachOutdoor seating along beach makes this special. Great menu and preparation. If weather (or crowd size) precludes outdoor seating, though the inside dining area is attractive, it loses some of the appeal.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the FewOne of the few restaurants in Naples on the Gulf shore front and with very good food. Walking distance from La Playa and the Ritz another bonus.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBeach side gemDelicious seafood and wonderful beach side setting with spectacular sunsets. Casual yet nice enough for a special occasion with tables and umbrellas on rhe sand and torches flickering at night . Nice lunch spot also, varied lunch menu and you can enjoy a cool drink and the ocean breezes.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe where celebrating a birthdayWe where celebrating a birthday and our service was outstanding. Julia help make the night extra special which was very much appreciated by all of us.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI've enjoyed many nice dinnersI've enjoyed many nice dinners at the Turtle Club. Very good food and lovely beach view. The only negative experience I've had was being charged $28 for two small plastic half cups of wine to take to the beach to view the sunset (while waiting for a table). Come on, at least fill them up all the way for that price! I don't usually complain about prices but this was crazy.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything from making theEverything from making the reservation, to arriving and being allowed to select indoor or outdoor dining, to the friendly service and delicious food, to the spectacular sunset made our evening at The Turtle Club very special. I was even treated to wonderful key lime pie and a lovy round of Happy Birthday.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were pleasantly surprisedWe were pleasantly surprised that our prized outside table was held for us. The staff was very nice and helpful. Appetizer was outstanding, meal was very good, but the sides were lacking - risotto too, too sticky, carrots & green beans were rubbery and bland. Grits were - too much! We're light drinkers, but the cocktail was great and so was the wine. Great happy hours, I'm sure!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place, good ambiance.Nice place, good ambiance.

Should get dining points though via open table if they want the customer to use open table.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat sunsetBeing outdoor by the beach, made this restaurant. I would of liked it better if our table was on the beach, but can't have everything. The food and service was very good.

The service this night was excellent but in the past sketchy. Wonderful menu and
well prepared fresh fish and sides. A very functional wine list. Well worth the price
because of the venue and food.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHad both lunch and dinnerHad both lunch and dinner here. Had a table outside "on the sand" and it was lovely. Great food.

The food and ambiance were terrific.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very good, felt staffFood was very good, felt staff really directed their energy to the locals. We also overheard a very unprofessional conversation between a hostess and a waiter. The waiter was trying to help a couple who was dissatisfied with their table location and the hostess made it clear this annoyed her and told the waiter to do whatever!!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMMy sister and I had a niceMy sister and I had a nice time! We both ordered seafood - she got the Harvest and I went with the grilled red snapper. We both ordered house salads and a couple of cosmos.

That's why I love the Turtle Club..4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time dinnerIt was our first visit to The Turtle Club and was a wonderful surprise. We opted for indoor seating with a great view of the outdoor/beach. Our dinners were fantastic! My husband ordered a seafood special of flounder with fennel risotto and sundries tomatoes which was incredible. I ordered the lobster special which had crab meat topping. It was very good though the lobster was a tad dry, but still very tasty. Highly recommend this restaurant . We hope to visit again for lunch.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
