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.

We were firstly a little disappointed not to have an outside table which we had asked for, but with rain in the air perhaps that was not such a bad thing.
This is clearly a very popular place to eat, deservedly so. The food was outstanding. I had a superb fish dish, and my partner ate what he thought was probably the best fillet steak ever.
The smallest down side was the feeling that in an effort to not disappoint customers, the tables have been a little squeezed in, giving a slightly confined feel to some, but this did not affect the superb service or food.
Definitely somewhere to return to.

We always enjoy coming here. We had a mahi mahi, and shrimp dinner (which was delicious). We thought the crab cocktail was over- priced. Afterward they had chairs to view the sunset, which we thought gave the evening a nice ending.

Some confusion initially about table seating. We initially 3 months prior made reservations on open table but then quickly. Allied back to change to 7:30 and make sure seating was outside.
A day before eating there, we received confirmation and call that these changes were never made.
Other than that, everything was superb!! Oysters were divine!

Erstklassige direkte Strandlage, sehr guter Service, kompetenter Kellner, schmackhaftes Essen. Alles in allem ein ausgesprochen gutes Restaurant, sofern man draußen sitzen kann. Unbedingt reservieren, leider lange Wartezeiten!

Our kids bought us a gift certificate for Christmas. Last time we ate at The Turtle Club we had to eat inside because of a thunderstorm. Treat to eat outside & enjoy the sunset this time.

Beautiful fine dining experience. Definitely make reservations well in advance - try to get an outdoor table at sunset. You’re right on the beach. Enjoyed a beet salad, mixed seafood platter, and key lime pie. The valet is complimentary, there is also a garage for beach parking a few blocks away.

The food was outstanding. The service was subpar. Our entrées arrived and we had not been served our soup or salads. The waiter made no apologies and just stated we would not be charged. I would recommend the restaurant for the location and quality of food.

Turtle Club never disappoints their guests. They’re real pros at their job. Best view for sunset , all from a table in the sand. Always a favorite. Hard to get a Rsvp for dinner.

Our dining experience was good with one great exception, the location of the table by (at) the door. No one should be offered this space: a diner's chair being constantly struct by traffic opening the door and a nesting bird above the table (between the gutter and roof).

We arrived on a windy, cool night so it was a little uncomfortable outside. The table was furthest from the beach area so I believe it got more wind than those close to the wind block on the sand. I would ask for that specific seating in the future. The snapper was very good and the hamburger accommodated my grandson's taste. The sunset did not disappoint!

We hadn't been to Turtle Club in years and it was even better than what I had remembered. Wonderful location on the beach and excellent food- seafood was excellent- everyone's meal. It's hard to get a reservation outside in season so plan ahead!

Great waterfront Gulf view with sunset if there are no clouds. Kind of expensive, but well worth it once in a while.

My wife and I went to the Turtle Club last night to celebrate our anniversary. It was the perfect choice. You need to book your reservation months in advance for in-season dining and schedule it about an hour before sunset. The ambiance is amazing, the food was excellent, and our waiter timed everything perfect. A little pricey, but hey, the Turtle Club is perfect for a special occasion. You won't be disappointed.

As we arrived so did the torrential rain to dampen our evening for sitting outside and watching the sunset. We were given the last table inside and had a wonderful meal. We were not rushed to turn the table since outside dining was not possible. Service was excellent as was the food though pricey. Don’t know how they managed it but they turned a disaster into a lovely evening sans the sunset.

Have been going to Turtle club over 20 years. Was always an enjoyable place to dine with good food. We have always taken the kids there for the last night of our vacation. Last night really felt like they were so popular that they really didn’t care less about the service or if we came back. Turtle club is not a inexpensive restaurant and when dining out and paying that type of money would like some attention from staff. Maybe they just got too busy. Food was still above average favorable and fresh.

My husband and I have wanted to go to dinner at the Turtle Club
for a long time but it is always busy.

I happened to look on Friday and was lucky enough there was
an available table for 2 open the next day, Saturday, at 6:15.

From the moment we arrived to leaving the staff was exceptional, especially our waiter Doug.

In addition to the exceptional meal we were lucky to be seated in a perfect spot on the patio where we could see the beautiful Naples sunset.

Thank you Turtle Club.

Came here with my daughter on our last night of vacation in Naples. We sat outside which was really nice. It would have been even better sitting during Sunset but our reservations were at 8:30. Overall the food was very good. It would have been better if it came quicker. We shared an appetizer of a Cheese Plate which came out quick but our dinner really took a long time to come out. I had the Salmon and my daughter had the Scallops. Both were very good however by the time they served us, our appetites decreased and we weren't very hungry. We ate as much as we could but didn't finish. Both dishes were very good though. We did manage to order the Chocolate Cake to share for dessert, which was given rave reviews on other websites. It was very good also. I would have given 4 stars if it wasn't for the slow food service.

I chose The Turtle Club for a special occasion birthday for my wife because of its reputation for fine dining and wonderful location in Naples FL. It was our first time dining there and it was exceptional. The food was delicious (entrees included shrimp, cod, scallops and filet mignon). It was served quickly, served piping hot and was absolutely delicious. More importantly was the level of service provided by all the people we interacted with, but especially our server Adriana. Very attentive all evening long and very efficient in additional to being knowledgeable about the menu options. We had a fabulous time and will definitely be returning to this fine establishment

My husband and I wanted to have a nice dinner on the beach -we were blown away by Turtle Club! They were so accommodating with our two girls (age 3 and 6). They offered to bring out crackers for them to snack on while we waited for our food. We were able to enjoy a delicious seafood dinner with our toes in the sand overlooking the ocean. We will definitely be back.

We waited 3 months to get a sunset reservation at the Turtle Club - we have been going there since it opened and we enjoy dining with the gulf at our toes. There is no place in Naples quite like it.
Unfortunately, on our special evening, nothing was up to par. The martinis were't chilled, the server was neglectful and the food was just average.
It would be wonderful to think that this lovely restaurant would not want to rest of the laurels of its past successes, and would continue to be a very special dining treasure.
