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

  • "We enjoyed a great dinner outside, overlooking the water, as the sun was setting. There aren't many places to enjoy a wonderful meal right on the sand but, if that's what you are looking for, I highly recommend."

  • "We had heard a lot about Turtle Club and finally made it there. We took our kids. The staff was terrific. Food was great. Only disappointment was on kids menu-no fish. Quaint atmosphere. Great seafood. Finally Naples food worthy of the price & not touristy."

  • "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!"

  • "Great sunset views. Surprised by the plastic resin tables and chairs on the sand. Believe they can improve the furniture and make the experience better."

  • "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!"

  • "We dined outside and enjoyed an excellent dinner while viewing the Gulf waters. The service was excellent as well, and despite the rain showers, we had a fantastic time under the umbrella."

  • "Sit outside so you can see the sunset on the water. The inside is nothing special and actually smells like fish and there is sand tracked on the carpet. The food is delicious."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "While The Turtle Club is probably one of the best places to eat in Naples, there is still room for improvement. Our waiter was training someone and never introduced him to the table but gave a tutorial of how to wait on us throughout our meal which made things somewhat odd. Also there was a very loud man at the bar who the staff had to quiet a few times. It seemed as he was a regular but his inability to speak quietly and without profanities should have had the staff escorting him out. The food was good and the view was to die for."

  • "We dined outdoors which was a bad experience because of the nuisance of flies. The waiter didn't check on us frequently. We had lapse time in between once we finished our appetizers and our main entree, also water refills. Waiting for checkout took even longer!!! Made online reservations and also followed up with a phone call the day before. As I spoke to a gentlemen and advised him of our reservations for my boyfriend's birthday, he proceeded to say that he would add a note stating it was for a birthday. I figured he would have received a small dessert of some sort but to no avail or be acknowledged."

  • "My wife and I dined at Turtle Club for our 7th anniversary. What a nice evening. Great food, attentive staff, and awesome view of the Gulf. We dined until a few minutes before sundown and then walked just a few yards to the water's edge to watch an incredible sunset. We found our new "go to place" for making memories in Naples."
    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."

  • "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."

  • "Me and my party of 4 had a wonderful time and experience at The Turtle Club. The food and the service was out of this world. I cannot believe my luck I found this place just by browsing on the internet Travel Advisor and I am pleasantly pleased. We look forward to future visits."

  • "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."

  • "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."
