I have been to this restaurant many times over the years...it continues to serve fresh seafood and other fare and in my opinion, has THE BEST onion rings you will find anywhere. Not pretentious, casual and comfortable and very reasonably priced. A survivor from Old Savin Rock!

Turks has been a seafood and hot dog staple of tithe shoreline restaurant scene for decades. The food is excellent, the service warm and speedy, and the atmosphere is old time West Haven. It is a hidden gem on the shore.

The food and service at Turk's is fantastic. We went here a week ago and returned again last night because we enjoyed our meals so much last week. I have no idea why the wait across the street is so long when the food and service is so much better at Turk's. The servers are extremely friendly and very efficient... More

Turks is a West Haven institution for its yummy and quick food. The food is great - it's basically your local fish/clam shack along Captain Thomas Blvd. Onion Rings are some of the best I've had and portions and taste always rate high. The ambiance is quite odd though. I've eaten in once but generally go to the "quick serve"... More

We have lived in West Haven 14 years and I have never been to Turk's before tonight. I will say this; the service and food are better than Jimmy's but it's nothing to write home about. We wanted to try it so we took the kids; it was dead and service was excellent we were the only ones in the... More

If you are diet conscious and not a fan of fried/greasy food, this isn't the place for you. (Or me) There are some broiled seafood options and a few salads but that's about it. However, if fried fish, shrimp, French fries and corn are your thing- def check it out. (Only veggie option is corn- other than beets. Are they... More

We enjoyed a great dinner at Turk's on Father's Day. Quite a selection of sea food. I had the broiled scrod. It was delicious. Cooked just right. It came with sides; either fries or baked potato and cole slaw. They are also known for their freshly made mozzerralla sticks, served with a Marinara sauce. Also have a variety for their... More

Great food and service ! Best thing besides the food was the service and the fact that when you leave a tip the server gets to keep the entire amount unlike some other place across the street !

Turks is amazing. I decided to celebrate my birthday at Turks last night. I hadn't been there in quite a while and really didn't know what to expect. To my surprise, I was served the best fried shrimp dinner I have had in many many years. Thanks Turks for not changing one bit.Your meals are fabulous.Thank you for a wonderful... More

I've been going here for years. It has some of the best seafood in the area. From the soups to the fish sandwiches to the hot dog platter, the food here is delicious. We will keep going back.
