Had an outstanding dinner here and great service. Outdoor seating is set out on the sand, enclosed when weather is on the chilly side at night. Heaters keep you warm and low lighting on each umbrella. Seafood is their specialty but there are some nice steaks on the menu. Red Snapper was awesome as was the blackened sword fish that night. I’ve been here on several occasions. Never a bad meal. Highly recommend.

Love hearing the waives and being on the beach. Seafood soup had good flavor, but was cold and kind of gloppy. Sea Bass was very good. Service could have been better.

One of the best restaurants in Naples you can sit right on the beach. It was very windy tonight but the wind barriers and heaters made it very toasty.

Food is consistently good.

Our waiter Boris was great

Dining at the Turtle Club is part of my annual visit to the Vanderbilt Beach Resort. The food is delicious, the service outstanding. AND - the best part - it is waterfront dining... at lunch you see it all, and in the evening the sound of the waves is perfection!

Great service all three times we ate recently. Sara is wonderful and has suggestions. Good food but pricey--try the shrimp/crab napoleon and the seafood chowder. Perfect sunset and ambiance. Please bring back the bread service!

We have visited this restaurant many times. The food is always good and the view is spectacular. Usually have great service as well. This visit the service was below normal standards for the Turtle Club. We sat for long periods of time wishing someone would come to refill our drinks or bring other needed items. In addition, no longer give bread basket for the table. This seems really cheap for such a high priced establishment.

We were very disappointed! As locals we booked this reservation for my best friends 60th birthday and requested outside and we’re given a table against the wall with no view. I booked way in advance and the girl that checked us in was less than friendly.

Our night was extraordinary in that the service was excellent and the setting was spectacular. We enjoyed the food and recommended wine. The venue was a birthday surprise which proved to be a worthwhile and memorable experience. Special recognition to the staff who made our night very special.

I live in Naples year-round and this is my go-to place to take visitors for an early dinner to watch sunset while literally dining with your toes in the sand! This time our food was delicious! The famous Oyster’s Rockefeller, ceviche and seabass were all done perfectly. We splurged and had carrot cake too...yum! Our waiter never rushed us and I appreciate that!

My husband said it was the best grouper he's ever had. the grouper has little crab meat on top of it. I had oyster rockefeller and I say its the best in Naples area.

I do think the waitress/waiters wait too long in between when seating to take orders for appetizers or desserts. We have been there several times and will continue to be back.

This is one of my new favorite places to dine outside in Naples. The view is amazing. You are literally on the sand.
My husband has the Chilean Sea Bass and I had the Grouper with Lump Crab. The food is outstanding!
Service was great . We were sat before our scheduled reservation.
