The Turtle Club Restaurant is Naples’ most charming and intimate beachfront restaurant, where guests experience gracious hospitality and 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 adjacent to the beautiful Gulf of Mexico (often with toes in the sand!) and enjoy the sights and sounds of the sea, including breathtaking sunsets. The cuisine is equally fantastic—serving only the freshest seafood and steaks with a core menu that includes something for everyone. Weekly specials combine the best of traditional and contemporary culinary styles with touches of Mediterranean, Caribbean, Asian and Southern American cuisine. The Turtle Club has been voted one of the best waterfront dining restaurants in Naples for many years.

Wanted to come here for a while but hard to get table. Celebrating a Birthday. We asked to sit on beach. We were seated at corner table next to a common walking path. Multikids Running up and down yelling and doing kid things. So much for the intimate setting. Food was good service seemed distracted. He was a good waiter, knowledgeable, but seemed to forget about us for other tables. Not sure I am coming back. Many great restaurants in Naples.

A major disappointment in hosting a dinner for four business associates who were vacationing in the area. We chose The Turtle Club because we've had great date night, family dinners, and hosting guests in the past. Tonight was a stark contrast! Our server was not engaging and seemed rushed, even to take our drink orders. Drinks came, but atypical short pours appeared to be the norm. Then it got worse..even our guests commented that our server had abandoned us. Our guests later commented about the rude and loud diners at the table by the window and the lack of intervention by Management. The ONLY saving grace was the outstanding food; everyone commented how good their salads and entrees were! As we were leaving, the hostess asked the obligatory "How was everything?" I explained my concern about the service, and there was absolutely no response. Perhaps this was an off night for everyone- except the Chef and the kitchen staff; we can only hope that off nights don't occur frequently during season.

Seafood is always impecably prepared here. Shrimp and grits and sausage equal a dreamy combination. And the grilled fish and shrimp were perfect. Don't forget the crisp asparagus! Polished service as well.

We went to The Turtle Club for our anniversary. We sat at a table right on the sand overlooking the gulf & watched the most beautiful sunset. It was so romantic & picturesque... our food was great, especially the seafood chowder and the crab & lobster Napoleon (I think that’s what it was)
We were very happy with the bill too!! Less than we imagined!! We can’t wait to go back!!

The Turtle Club is a special place- it's hard to beat and hard to find oceanfront "in the sand" dining in Naples. One of our party members doesn't eat seafood. She ordered the NY strip steak "medium well done." I realize that's not everyone's preference, but it's her preference. The steak was prepared medium rare, and when the waiter finally checked on us, he took it back for further cooking. The other member of our party and I ate our meal (the sea harvest- it was delicious) so it wouldn't get cold. After an apology for the extra delay to cook the steak to medium well, it came back out; still cooked to medium with a pink center. At this point, the manager presented to the table and stated he is removing the steak from the bill. She was, however, charged for her glass of iced tea, which wasn't offered to be refilled one time during our two hour meal. Additionally, no offer to refill our water glasses, however we were asked if we would like another margarita or glass of wine. As mentioned, the Turtle Club is a special place, and we will be back; I just expect a chef to be able to prepare a steak to the customer's temperature preference, and if it's not, when removing the steak from the bill, the $3 glass of tea should be removed, too.

Altho we loved our table and server, though for off season, the normal "turtle club" was off. We are yearounders and await the off season so we can get into our favorite places that we can't get into in season. Maybe red tide, whatever, but hope they remember us who supported them in this down time! Food good, service excellent, but atmosphere just seemed off.

Food was okay, nothing spectacular. Service also was just okay. There were a lot of families celebrating birthdays, including us. However, the family at the table next to us had two obnoxious crying whining little kids. They & their negligent parents ruined the atmosphere for us & many other diners.

Food was very good. Service was extremely professional. The server was very patient with our large party of 8, which consisted of six children. Our outdoor seating was amazing with our feet in the sand, watching the sun set. On the other side of the outdoor seating there are chairs and lounge chairs for watching the sunset with a drink in hand. We plan to return for a date night very soon. Very enjoyable experience. Thank you!

We had requested a table on the beach, but when we arrived and realized the red tide invasion, were delighted to be given a choice whether to eat inside or out. We chose in and were exceptionally pleased with the entire evening. Everyone at our table enjoyed the Oysters Turtlefellow. The best we ever tasted!

This was our first time to The Turtle Club and were very pleased. There is free valet parking which is helpful as parking is at a minimum. The ambiance is wonderful, as you may dine indoors with a view of the ocean or eat outdoors on their patio or at a table in the sand. My husband and I each had a special (not the same one) and were delighted with the taste and size of the portion served. All in al,l a really good experience. We will return.

Great restaurant , attentive service ! I have never had a bad experience at this fine restaurant . The evening we dined our table of 5 was affected by the red tide - but our server immediately moved us inside for a memorable experience . Hopefully SWF governments can find a way to deal with this red tide . It is a shame that this environmental disaster affects this fine establishment and employees negatively . I will continue to bring out of town family/friends to this restaurant for the food service and ambience even if we cannot sit outside ! This restaurant is always worth it !
