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

  • "The food and atmosphere was amazing. We were celebrating our anniversary and wanted a romantic sunset dinner. The very fussy toddler and unattentive server was a bummer, but we made the best of it!"

  • "It was a very nice ambience! The food was fresh , not highy sophisticated, but the sight of the sun set over the gukf of mexico was worth it. The service was friendly and helpful, while at time a little bit overwhelmed by the number of patrons they had to hanlde .In terms of food, the fish and the sea shell were very fresh, even if a greater choice would be apreciated. Altogether a nice experience which we will revisit ."

  • "I like the Turtle club because they don't get in their own way. Not a lot of tricked up food with crazy components. Simple fresh and good. No complaints with what they do. That's why we like it."

  • "So the title says it all, it is a wonderful setting, arrived as the sunset and it couldn't have been more beautiful. The wine list was good and the menu looked great, and in fact the appetisers were of a very high standard. Then the main course arrived, and although the seafood was great quality, the way it was served was uninspiring, and rather tasteless. Although we enjoyed the evening, I doubt we would recommend for food!"

  • "Outstanding food, wonderful service and awesome views! I love the Shrimp and Crab Napoleon as well as many other dishes they have. The menu is fantastic. Naples has only a few restaurants with a true oceanfront dining experience and this one is top notch all the way around!"

  • "Another great experience at Turtle we've gone regularly over the years and they never disappoint. Food, drinks, service and scenery are wonderful."

  • "Great view of the sunset over the Gulf combined with outstanding food and drink. We had the Grouper and crab and it was outstanding. This is a very good restaurant that is set in a very special place on this earth. You will not be disappointed."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "The beach setting can't be beat. Be sure to sit outside on the patio or directly on the sand. Food is about the best you'll find for the few in Naples on the water and I've been here 30 plus years. They also make a good drink!"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "We had a fantastic vacation and will return at a later date. The entire staff was great!"
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "Turtle Club, while almost impossible to get into in the height of the tourism season, worth waiting for when things slow down in the summer. It is a great spot, somewhat expensive but good pricing for the quality of food and drink you get. Outstanding views either dining inside or on a table set up on the beach. A special occasion spot. Very nice staff and service. Sunset views are spectacular."

  • "Turtle Club is usually one of our 'go-to' places for out-of-town guests, but this time the AC was not working well and we were miserable throughout the meal and stuck to our chairs in sweat by the end of the meal. We did not complain because there was nothing they could do and we had no backup plans for our guests. Just not the way we hoped our $400 dinner would turn out. Next time I'll call ahead and ask about the AC before we go."

  • "Nice spot on Vanderbilt Beach Great Sunset! Friendly,and relaxed. Very attentive server. We dined outside for drinks and appetizers, and then the sky got really dark quickly. We were then asked if wanted to be seated inside. We completed our meals inside. The scallops were excellent!"

  • "I like the Turtle Club because it has great service, a nice wine list, lovely food, and it is on the beach. It would seem that this combination would be common in SWFL, but sadly it is rare. Most of our beach restaurants are tourist traps with lousy everything and high prices to boot. My husband and I had a nice walk on the beach afterwards and we took some great photos of the wildlife. We live in Cape Coral so we have to drive quite a way to visit, but it is always worth it."

  • "The food was fantastic, the service was more than excellent and then there's this wonderful experience watching the sun sink into the Gulf of Mexico. How much better can it get!!"

  • "This restaurant offers the option to sit at a table right on the ocean, that is if you reserve a table early. I suggest you reserve before you even get to the area. While it is pricey the whole experience from the quality of the food and preparation, makes it a worthwhile experience."

  • "A week in Naples & we dined out often. The Turtle Club was the most impressive place we visited and outstanding across every measure. We had a great table on the beach. My Woodford Reserve Manhattan was perfect, my wife found a smooth, light & tasty wine she liked that we enjoyed with calamari that was lightly breaded & fried, served with a tasty wasabi sauce that made this the best calamari we ever had. My Grouper w/ Lump Crab & her Chilean Sea Bass were perfect! Key Lime Pie & and an after dinner drink topped off a fabulous meal. Our server, Leslie, was delightful and made us feel welcome with no sense of hurry or rush while easily joining in and adding to our fun time. Everything was just great! We will definitely return here!! : )"

  • "Sat at outside table, at 7:15pm, Had a great view of Sunset. Service was good, room for improvement to be a truly FINE DINING Restaurant. Server forgot to bring wine as requested with Cheese course. Food was truly outstanding. Sea Bass was great!! Would choose for a romantic evening."

  • "Enjoyed our dinner and the entire experience of sunset on the beach. The only unfortunate part was a person sitting in one of the lounge chairs up wind from us was puffing on a very large smelly cigar. He was finally asked to move further away but the wind continued to blow in our direction and we got to enjoy his passion more than we cared.."

  • "The service was impeccable, the view just beautiful, and the good was very good. The only complaint I have is that there was too much pepper on my filet and asparagus, and too many herbs on my daughter's chicken. Dessert was divine though!"

  • "From the front and center, unobstructed table view of the ocean to the exceptional service, Turtle Club went above and beyond to make my anniversary a special occasion! Our server was both friendly in her presentation and knowledgeable about the menu. I began my evening with a Turtle Tini that had been highly recommended per a friend – it did not disappoint! The specialty drink was perfect and a full glass at that. My husband ordered the Lamb Rack which was perfectly cooked and I chose the Sea Bass which arrived with a light, buttery, pesto sauce. We ended the evening with a refreshing piece of Key Lime Pie and a Nutty Irishman Coffee as we watched the sunset into the ocean. What a perfect evening!"
