Tasty and fresh

I had a great crab cake here. Good menu selection to suit either a craving for food from the sea or from land. Decent prices, and a view of the ocean. Service with a smile too.

We greatly enjoyed our calamari & clam appetizers as well as our grouper sandwich, fried shrimp, and fish tacos in this very relaxed place. Even though we were intent on having seafood because it was our first full day in Florida, the intoxicating aroma from the burgers being carried to other tables nearly made us change our minds!

We were slowly driving north on A1A back home looked up "best restaurant near me"? Turtle Shack came up as best on Trip Advisor and Yelp. We ordered their famous crab cake with has NO fillers. It's not like some others that taste like a bread cake with a little crab. This was all crab. We had it pan fried... More

We stopped in for lunch via recommendation. I could kiss my friend on the lips!!! We started with Caprese, a perfect marriage of mozzerella, tomato, and basil, all fresh as can be. I had the Shack Stack burger, cooked exactly to my specifications. Juicy, delicious, and well, delicious! Wifey had crab cake. Lot of crab, not much cake, a whole... More

Enjoyed a delicious meal beginning with an avocado egg roll which was a large appetizer shared by our group. The shrimp entry was well prepared and very tasty Danny, our server provided great service. Our group would definitely return for a meal next time we are in the Flagler Beach area

Turtle Shack is a bit away from the pier in Flagler Beach but it is a wonderful little spot. Music on certain nights, good meals, especially the burgers!

A group of four of us came here one Friday for lunch (based upon other reviews) looking for a good burger. We arrived just as they opened and were glad we did because before we finished our meal, the place was packed. I had the Sweet-Hot Burger with jalepenos and it was everything I wanted it to be. The patty... More

Hey what more to say, dogs allowed outside! Food selection is great and everything is awesome. Giant filler FREE crab cake is great, seared ahi is good stuff. Steamed mussels and clams all very good. Staff is always nice, quick and professional . Only place to go in Flaggler except Flaggler fish company.

While visiting friends in Florida, my buddy wanted to grab a bite at The Turtle Shack. This roadside/beachside establishment looks a little ramshackled from the outside and my expectations were very low. We could choose from inside or outside seating; we sat outside where the tables and chairs appeared to be made from brightly painted patio deck lumber. My friend... More
