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.

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.

    I came to Naples for my 50th Birthday with my wife and another couple. We heard about your restaurant from friends where we live in Toledo, OH. 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.

    It was our 30 anniversary and with the exception of it pouring rain the evening was made very special. Katherine our server was a doll and I'm sure was soaked by the end of the night but was a true professional. The food was outstanding and both my wife and I would highly recommend it.

    Go for the view...right on Vanderbilt Beach. You can actually dine right on the sand. The restaurant is located in the Vanderbilt Beach Resort, so you have a mix of custmers. Some in dress up clothes and others in swimsuits. Service is great and the food is tasty. Large wine list.

    The only downside to our visit was that we felt we were a bit rushed. Wouldn't expect to be in, eat and leave in an hour! Maybe because we could only get a 6 o'clock reservation, the table was booked for somebody else at 7 o'clock. This was very disappointing. However, food very good and the slice of pie with a birthday candle was much appreciated. We weren't offered a coffee to finish our meal.

    When we are on the beach The Turtle Club is one of our favorite places to dine. We enjoy being right on the beach to enjoy the sunset...but they also have nice inside tables too. This time the lobster special was wonderful as was the petite filet and oysters turtlefeller (one of my personal favorites). Doesn't get much better than this! Enjoy!

    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 .

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
