    Can't say enough about the Turtle Club. I recommend this establishment for all who appreciate a wonderful setting. What better place to have a delicious meal on the beach with the gulf view! We ate lunch and dinner here. Loved salmon salad with fruit for lunch and filet with seafood for dinner. We will return.

    The turtle club is a place you must make reservations for. Every time I go to Naples I try to get into the turtle club. The food is just fantastic and the fact that they are located right on the ocean is a big bonus! You simply cannot miss the sunset there! What are your favorite bottle of wine and their signature Oysters Turtlefeller.

    This was to be a birthday celebration. This is a waterfront restaurant and we asked for a table indoors near a window. We were seated in front of a wine room instead. The meal was rushed...our first course came while we were sipping our drinks, and our entrees were served while we were still eating salad. A slice of pie with a candle was served with our coffees, which we thought was nice, until we saw the bill and realized we were charged $8 for it. Our "celebration" dinner lasted less than 1 hour. We had a 6 pm reservation and we were standing on the beach for the 7 pm sunset. We live in Naples and we'll never go back. I know you can't eat atmosphere, but it sure helps.

    We were really impressed with the seafood dinner we had here - chilean sea bass, mahi mahi, crab, and sea scallops were all cooked to perfection and we gobbled up every bite (plus a dozen raw oysters to start!). You can skip the desserts - these were fine but didn't hold a candle to the seafood which was clearly the draw.

    Although there was no sunset because of a storm out at sea the view was good. When we have been here with a great sunset its the only place to have a cocktail and watch the sun go down. Excellent food and good choice of wine. Very friendly service

    Enjoyed an anniversary dinner at the Tuttle Club recently and the visit did not disappoint. Dining with a view of the Gulf was fantastic. The knowledgable waitstaff offered a great suggestion for our selection of wine and the food was divine. The preparation of the sea bass is the best I've ever tasted. Looking forward to a return visit soon.

    Naples has very few beach front bars & restaurants. Thank goodness for the Turtle Club. The food is consistently good, the pour a good drink and of course, the outdoor dining is sublime--right on the Gulf of Mexico.

    Four of us dined on Sunday. too bad it was too windy to dine outside. my wife had triple tail which is a local FL fish, not to be missed. The rest of has the sea bass which I would order again without the coconut sauce/flavor. It was a bit strong for the Sea Bass we all thought. We split a ceasar but next time we will not do this. We would each order a separate salad. Great place for lunch.

    The Turtle Club is one of the loveliest locations you'll find along Naples' Gulf coast. It's hard to beat dining on the beach and catching a magnificent sunset - it's been a favorite for years. Our recent visit had us leaving still in awe of this place we call Paradise, but less than pleased with the food. We hope it was no more than an off night in the kitchen, and trust the TC isn't just coasting on its reputation as a "must dine there when in Naples" location. Market rate top dollar pricing should cover ambiance, service and food, but in our opinion the latter did not cut it. We'll return cautious, anticipating the impressively beautiful setting and crossing our fingers that the meals aren't pushed out casual quick service-style.

    All around perfect experience! The ambience is amazing. Watching the sunset was breathtaking. Our food was delicious. Came a couple of years ago and had terrible service and the food was overlooked and dry. They have since perfected the food with excellent service and made the overall entire experience unforgettable. Highly recommend this dining experience!

    The Turtle Club called that afternoon to confirm reservation, I called back at 5 and was told that if raining we would be seated inside. When we arrived at 6 PM for dinner, we were told restaurant was closed, no explanation. Another couple waiting told us it had suffered a lightening strike. No apologies, very disappointed

    We ate outside (47 feet from the ocean according to the owner) and had a wonderful view and dinner. Even though the menu is the same the outside area is much more casual than inside. I do prefer the more upscale feel of the indoor restaurant but you can't beat the ocean scenery.....

By far, our dining experience at your restaurant was the magical moment of our getaway vacation. The food, the wine, the atmosphere and beach front setting will always remain in my memory as a reminder of how good life can be. Thanks for the memory!

    One of the best places in Naples for outdoor dining. We have experienced many beautiful sunsets here. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate this time, so we had to move indoors. Service staff was very helpful getting people moved to tables indoors, out of the rain. The special of the night was lobster tail. It was very good.
