A fanastic dining experience every time I go. If you can get a table outside on the beach do so and watch the sunset as you are enjoying your first cocktail.

My husband & I took my twin sister & a dear friend from Wisconsin here for dinner. We sat outside & enjoyed a lovely sunset while we ate! It was their first time here & both agreed that it was an exceptional dinner & amazing oceanfront view! The Turtle Club will always remain our “must go to” restaurant with our out of town guests!

Our group ordered seafood and everyone found their meal to be delicious from the lobster to the Sea Bass. The service was timely and efficient. Our group arrived at different times and the waitress took it all in stride. The plastic wind shields and gas heaters really made for a comfortable winter evening outdoors. The breathtaking view of the sun setting and the perfectly prepared dishes are why we return several times each winter.

We arrived early for outdoor seating. The hostess was most gracious and told us we could get a drink and sit at the bar or go outside. We went outside and selected the table perfect for us; then went out on the beach and took pictures. Our server was wonderful; everyone we encountered was happy and helpful; the food was beyond fantastic. My guests had never been there before and they loved it! I was served key lime pie for my birthday. A perfect dining experience.

The location along the beach lends to great people watching. Ate two meals at The Turtle Club.
Lunch outside, next to the beach was outstanding. Also ate dinner in the evening. The seafood was overdone, but again the outdoor dining experience was great.

Food was good but my husbands espresso was the worse he has ever had and my cuppacino still hadn’t come after 15 min after my husband was served,although the waitress kept saying it w as coming. I finally cancelled it.

Very surprised that there was not one poultry entree on the entire dinner menu. Good restaurant for for fish selections. Had to dine indoors because of cool weather. Would not do it again. A just so-so indoor dining room. Dining on the beach is their claim to fame. Service was good.

Seated immediately. Staff very warm and welcoming. Fabulous table for birthday group. Menu is outstanding with something for everyone. Food was wonderful, steak was perfectly cooked. I did miss getting a basket of bread on the table - must be something new they instituted. Wine suggestion was great as well. Overall excellent!

One of the most memorable meals I've had. The ambiance was spectacular, we dined on the beach, Christmas day. The sun set at the perfect time. The Lump Crab, Shrimp, and Beet salad were perfect temperature and properly prepared. Our Entree's were delicious, Filets for all, cooked 3 different ways to perfection.
They gave us a dessert gratis.
And the Turtle Martini is perfect way to top off your occasion.

Thanks

The calamari was excellent and the chowder and the banana daquiris. The filet was ok, but it had a lighter fluid taste, not good and the fingerling potatoes were not good. I would come for appetizers and drinks.

The food was good but not exceptional and therefore a bit of a disappointment, as we had expected an outstanding experience. My Caesar Salad was bland but the Sea Harvest was good. My wife had the petit filet (done perfectly) lump crabmeat which she enjoyed. The tables were well spaced and our waiter was outstanding, helpful, knowledgeable, and unobtrusive. We dined inside but our next visit will be outside. A pleasant but not memorable evening.

The Turtle Club was a disappointment. I made the reservation several months in advance as it was supposed to be the finale to a special holiday trip with my 76 year old mother. I specifically asked for outdoor seating and while they fulfilled that, they shoved us in a table at the very back by the kitchen service area as if we were being punished; like two kindergarteners who were caught eating paste. Our waitress was less than attentive until it came time to tip her and then she made a point of reminding us it was the holidays. The food was fine but nothing one can't find at dozens of other places in Naples. I suspect the prices reflect the experience and atmosphere, none of which we received. We won't be back.
