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.

    The upscale Turtle Club is indeed a gem not often fround ....the outdoor seating next to the Gulf is an amazing experience which sets the mood for toasting wine and enjoying oysters on the half shell while awaiting an awesome filet or fresh fish entree. The server with a great personality was exceptional. TThis is 'the place' to take visitors from the North!

    I have dined at the Turtle Club more times than I can count over the past 14 or so years. The food and service have always been outstanding. I have had many things on the menu, all very flavorful and well prepared, but my personal favorite is the Pear and Gorgonzola Salad with the Sea Bass. Combine that with a great sunset, and you have a very special experience! I have dined in many restaurants in the U.S. and Europe and The Turtle Club is easily in my top three.

    We were told we had to go here and watch the sunset, so a 5pm reservation we made. No dissappointments here re: food or view. appetizers, soup, entrees and dessert were all delicious. And the service was excellent to boot! When we are next in Naples, we would certainly go back and recommend to all!

    We've had both lunch and dinner here in the last few weeks and it is still wonderful. Even though the weather wasn't so good and there was no sunset on the day we did dinner the experience was still great. We were protected from the wind by clear plastic awnings so we weren't at all cold. Most of our party had the 10oz lobster 'special' which we all agreed was delicious. We will certainly be back!

    a perfect sunset dinner. our server, Doug, was efficient, helpful, well informed, unhurried. Our food was wonderful. the Chilean sea bass was delicate, perfectly prepared. I always eat at the Turle Club when visiting Naples. We also had lunch and beach drink service as we stayed at the Vanderbilt Beach Resort. the bartender is friendly, fast, and does not scrimp on the alcohol.

    The food and setting were fabulous. It was a little cool the evening we went so we didn't sit outside on the beach but I could see how much fun it could be. The only issue we had was that the pace of service was too fast; so fast in fact that we didn't have enough time to enjoy our wine and had to take it home. I don't want to want to go to such a nice place and feel like I'm being served in a diner.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    We have been to this restaurant several times and always enjoyed it. However, this time could have been better. Typically, it is difficult to obtain an outdoor seating. When I made the reservation on open table I DID NOT request an outdoor seating because the temperature that evening was predicted to be very cool plus very windy. I would never, in a million years, have expected that ANYONE would have been seated outdoors that night...but we were, with cold and windy weather conditions all around us! I think they overbooked that night. Our party of 4 was stunned. We told the hostess that we did not request to be on the beach or outside, to which her response was to move us to the patio! Lesson learned.....always phone ahead!

    Very enjoyable dinner looking out at the Gulf of Mexico. Even after the sun set, it was beautiful. Tables with umbrellas and fun and interesting lights wrapped around the center pole that could be changed from white light to read the menu, to orange for a muted glow. Great service (we were even seated before our reservation) and delicious Chilean Bass dinner, cooked perfectly. The peach gelato for dessert was a big enough portion for two to share. We were there for our 10th anniversary the end of October and the weather couldn't have been better. The temperature was ideal, no wind, no bugs; couldn't have asked for more. We were able to walk down the beach back to our hotel. A friend recommended the Turtle Club and we're so glad we went.

    The Turtle Club never disappoints. The view of the gulf and sunset when beachside for dinner is spectacular. The food is outstanding. My wife had the beet salad and grilled salmon which were perfectly prepared. I had the seafood chowder, Turtle club specialty and crab stuffed flounder which was excellent. One of our favorite places for either lunch or dinner.

    There are not too many places left where you can literally eat with your feet in the sand. Here at the Turtle Club the outdoor tables are on the beach and while some are on a small patio others are actually in the sand of the beach. Sunset is the best time to have a reservation but book in advance as these tables are hard to get. The food and service are good but too hectic to be "romantic." Casual up-scale crowd and all around a good Naples spot.

    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!

    Dined on 10/16/2014
    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.
