The turtle club is great for food, service and dining on the beach at sunset. A bit pricey but well worth it. One of our favorite places in southwest Florida. Highly recommended.

Great meal and location. However, they did not have adequate vegetarian options as stated in reviews. I called prior to make sure and was told that even though there were no vegetarian items on menu the kitchen could make “whatever” and not to worry. When we asked the server it was a different story. The only thing offered was salad and any of the vegetable sides for that evening. The vegetarian in our group ended up having a side of potatoes and garden salad while the rest of us has a nice meal.

I Love this place and go as often as I can and have been going for years. My low service grade is due to the waiter we had. He was not very attentive and it took for ever to place and receive our order. Maybe he was new? I don't know. He was nice enough, maybe just overwhelmed by how busy they were. This review should not prevent you from going.

We had a great time celebrating my mother-in-law's 80th birthday. JoEllen, our server, was excellent and the view to die for on the Gulf of Mexico. Don't miss it!

Overall the experience was good, but I had several problems with my order. I ordered the petite filet medium rare with shrimp and requested to add two oysters turtlefeller. When my food arrived the filet was well done, I requested a different one and when it came out the second time it was cooked to perfection but the filet came out with the oysters and no shrimp. They did bring out the shrimp but by the time it came I was all but done eating. The waitress was extremely humble about the mistake and gave us a free espresso and dessert to make up for the mistake. All in all it was good but would have been great if they had gotten it all right the first time around.

A fine and desirable restaurant on the beach with both indoor and outdoor dining on the sand. Hard to get a first choice prime dinner time unless you call week’s ahead. A little pricey, but the food and drinks are good. Service was very good, even outside far from the kitchen. But had to send the lobster bisque back to heat it up.

Service attentive/not intrusive.
Appetizer sashimi with jalapeño excellent- other three at table Loved their entree.
Swordfish special - moist/tender/ lacking in flavor. Had sea bass last visit and loved it and wish I had opted for it instead of special.
As always outside seating right next to beach at sunset time on gorgeous even - priceless!

Staff were great and attentive....even moved us to waterfront as a table opened up after our arrival. While the food was flavorful, we could not give 5 stars as it was served lukewarm instead of hot.

Turtle Club is nice at lunch when you can view the ocean and enjoy a salad and ice tea. In the evening it is an older crowd, touristy, and the food is just fair. It's also bland. The restaurants in downtown Naples are superior in all respects except for view.

Great meal, and Michael was superb as our wait person. The bartender, with the neatly trimmed beard, created the most delicious mocha martini! Delicious 😋. We, a party of 4, all had various steaks. Each grilled to perfection! I added Oysters and they too were outstanding.
As we were celebrating two couples wedding anniversaries, we were treated to a lucious piece of key lime pie! Turtle Club is our new go to restaurant for our escapes to Naples! Thank you!

Wish we could have gotten there when the sun set. Very busy day place for a very good reason. Loved the calamari. The lamb was to die for!!!! I think I can still taste it! We all enjoyed our orders...... but even my husband (non lamb lover) said he would order it next time. Thanks for a beautiful evening

The Turtle Club is my favorite Naples restaurant. The food, primarily fish and seafood, though plenty of steaks are available, is consistently delicious. Sitting on the sand over the beach is delightful. The staff are friendly and effective. The prices, while not cheap, are reasonable for the quality of the food. It can be tough to get a table at sunset, but before and after are equally desirable. They do get cancellations, so don’t be afraid to check.
