About

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.

As long as there is no red tide it is a beautiful restaurant with indoor & outdoor seating right on Vanderbilt beach. Food is excellent and I would recommend this place to anyone

Sort of "must try" while in Naples. Everything is well done, but it is still a bit over-rated.

The food was very good. I was very annoyed that they made me remove my cap as there were many people there in sloppy tops and shorts. Their rule is no hats allowed. I don't know how soon we will return. They are not inexpensive.

20190206, Turtle Club Restaurant review, 6 Feb 2019, , My rating very good 4.5/5, no waiting for 1 table inside, 45 min for outside. No view from our table. Their lunch menu was good, but print was too small, rather limited (23 items), and expensive. They had a lunch special of coconut shrimp over a nice salad, oddly with no dipping sauce ($18), which Lucy and 3 of our friends enjoyed. One of us, who needed to gain weight, took their half-pound burger, made from 3 excellent cuts of beef, dish. I had the fish-of-the-day, Corvina, which was not a local fish (E. Pacific), but was excellent ($24). Generous 2-portion serving. On my dish, they allowed the replacement of potatoes with more vegetables (asparagus, carrots, mushrooms, caramelized onions), which was nice, but the left off the advertised fruit, which was bad. They had a full bar, but their drinks were rather expensive. My “Bert Martini” (move over James) was good, if expensive (usually ~$5, but $14). Lucy and Sallie’s wines were good, but also expensive ($12). We should have had their bloody Mary with shrimp hanging out ($14). Waitress sloshed water across the table. Fortunately, did not hit anyone. Everyone thought the food was excellent. Would have probably been a better experience sitting out on their beach, but hot.

Our reservation was not honored because you severed ties with them in October. We never received any notice of this and as a consequence our surprise birthday dinner did not happen at The Turtle club. Total disappointment!!

The food is unforgettable. Not only is it prepared with great skill, but is pleasing as it is presented at table. We experienced slow service on St. Valentine's Day, but the facility was packed. Be prepared for a very LOUD environment, both inside and outside in the terrace area. You must converse in a loud voice, which only makes matters worse.

Above all the food is superior, making any other drawbacks trivial.

Our waiter was not very attentive. 3 of us got the Sea Harvest; 2 of us upgraded to the Grouper. When the food was brought out there was no way to tell which was the mahi and which was the grouper. The fish was terrible. Dry, tough and overcooked. We have eaten here in the past and always been pleased but if this was our first trip we would not come back. And at the end I had wine left. I asked a couple of times for it to be bagged up so I could take it home. When the waiter finally brought the bag he dropped the bottle, then picked it up and put it in the bag. I ended up throwing away the rest of the wine over concerns about glass shards. Overall a very disappointing experience.

Have gone here many years for Christmas. This was not a good experience this time. It started with the seating. We were put in the worst location, even though 2 tables were open and occupied shortly. I think because we showed up with 2 instead of 4 they gave us a bad table. Then we get to the table and there is water pooled on my wife’s seat. Their reaction was not what was expected. They shook it off and then when they saw our look then shifted chairs around. Finally the service was not what it usually was. The waitress gave a lot of attention to the table of 5 next to us, over us.

Have dined at this restaurant since it opened. We have had our yearly Christmas Eve outing at the Turtle Club for the past 15 years. The Petite Filet and Oysters Turtlefeller are must. Tried the Calamari this year as a starter and it was too die for. The wait staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Atmosphere is lively and romantic if you dine on the outside. You can hear the waves roll in over the chatter among the patrons. Awesome experience, try it at least once.
