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 Turtle Club never fails to delight! Arrived just prior to sunset. Grabbed our cocktails and headed to the benches near the beach designated for diners. Was seated about 15 minutes after the sun went down at a table on the patio. Wonderful view, sound of the surf, great food, wine and conversation with friends. A perfect evening!

Only disappointment was when we got there we were going to be seated indoors even though I requested outdoors. The young lady that was taking us to the table wasn’t the most pleasant person, told us there were no tables available outside, we decided we weren’t going to stay but the young lady that was at the reservation desk was very nice and helpful and put us at a table outside.

The food as always was spectacular! We brought friends from out of town to show off the food and outdoor dining. However, we had to wait 30 minutes for a 7:30 reservation and then 15 minutes for the server to take our drink order when we were seated. The food took a very long time to come out and when we asked our server what the hold up was, he said the kitchen was slammed. Knowing how popular the restaurant is and being a Saturday night at the very beginning of season, there should have been adequate help. Our server could tell we were upset and he did have something taken off of our bill which was very nice. With all of the amazing restaurants in Naples, we'll have to think twice about coming back any time soon though.

Lovely..

Turtle Club does not disappoint. Took my Mom and Sister for dinner to celebrate our special trip to Naples. I had been before and knew how beautiful the setting was and how delicious the food was but so excited to share with my family. My Mom and Sister were equally enchanted ! Cannot wait to visit again when I am back in Naples!

Great place to go for date night. We had a res for 8:15, but arrived early to see the sunset. Knowing that we would love to eat earlier (before 8), they came out to the beach!!! looking to seat us when they could get us in earlier.
We had a small snafu when our appetizer was delivered in the dark. Our light fixture on our table was too bright, the server removed it to bring a properly working one, but forgot momentarily. All was corrected very quickly without us bringing it to anyone's attention.
Hamachi was so fresh, my seafood platter rocked with the biggest scallop you have ever seen. My husband's stuffed group was HUGE. We will be back after we pay this one off on our credit card....Bar bill alone was $70 :-0

Delicious food! I came here with three friends while vacationing in Naples, and we liked it so much we booked a reservation again two nights later! One friend said the sea bass was the best she'd ever had - ordered it both nights. Amazing seafood, well-seasoned. They have delicious martinis, and the richest and fudgiest chocolate cake. You won't regret eating here.

Beautiful ocean front restaurant with inside and outside seating. Inside is cozy and intimate, perfect for a date night. Outside is perfect to watch the sun dip into the ocean. Delicious food featuring local seafood and ingredients. The wine list is extensive, it will be difficult not to find one you will enjoy. The service was spot on, our waiter was very informative with the menu and recommendations.
Parking is limited, but valet is available.

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!!
