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.

The menu and food has improved drastically over the last few years. One of very few places to enjoy a meal on the beach. Excellent food and service.

A restaurant in a beautiful location sometimes disappoints but not The Turtle Club
As visitors from the uk, we were recommended this restaurant by fellow diners we’d met a few nights before in another restaurant
We had the most fantastic table, literally in the sand - and in addition to a view to die for, the food, wine and service were all second to none
Would definitely return, as well as recommend this place to anyone looking for a place with a ‘special’ feel in Naples

Food was OK. Certainly not at all worth the price. Two people in our party ordered a Caesar salad and added chicken. We weren’t told but for a simple grilled chicken breast, they charged an extra $26 each?! A $10 salad jumped to more than my grouper and crab! Will never return! Not worth the view!

Our waiter was great, but the food was average for the price. There are too many great restaurants in the Naples area to pay a lot of money for ok food. Had heard lots of great things about this restaurant, so maybe it was an off night.

One of our favorite dining spots in all of Naples, FL. We enjoyed an excellent Caesar salad, and a Grouper and Crab dinner. Dessert was a deliciously different apple pie with vanilla gelato. Two suggestions: they should provide spoons (with out asking) for coffee and gelato, and they should serve bread, or at least crackers, like they used to.

Wonderful location and amazing food.
My only con was there was no chicken options on the menu and so my daughter has a salad and by adding chicken from the kids menu ended up paying $26 . Bit extravigant for a salad.
Would definately recommend the grouper stuffed with lobster. yummmmm

I have been going here for years for both lunch and dinner. This is one of the top restaurants in Naples even without the beautiful view and the option to eat outdoors. Service is excellent and their fresh fish options are wonderful. Great beef and lamb options as well.

I love this place and cannot be in Naples without going here for lunch or dinner or both. I went two nights in a row this visit as my kids enjoy the food and atmosphere.

I do miss having your special rolls, crackers don’t cut it. Also, the vegetables are over cooked and too small portions.

Enjoyed the outdoor seating and the food was fantastic. Our waiter, Doug, was top notch and helped make it that much more enjoyable. Price is high, especially when guests are sitting with a bathing suit and T-shirt at the table next to you.

We were celebrating two 60th birthdays and wanted to have a dinner on the beach during sunset. The Turtle Club was the perfect spot.

From the time we were greeted by the valet to the time we left - everything was perfect!

Our server was spot on - she didn’t rush us - suggested some great appetizers and salads - gave us the specials for the evening - the sirloin strip with goat cheese on top was amazing!!!!!

Treated our husbands with two complimentary key lime pies for their birthdays - they were pretty happy!!!

The celebration was complete!

We enjoyed a beautiful sunset and an outstanding dinner on the beach. I mean right on the beach. Our shoes were in the sand and that’s what we wanted. The only negative I have is the guests with me experienced sand flea bites, but I did not. It would be nice if the restaurant would spray under the tables and chairs to mitigate this. Otherwise a fantastic dinner. The food was excellent!
