I have driven by this restaurant for 30 years and never tried it. This time we did and had some great food. Turtle sour was very good (not sea turtle, farm raised turtles). Fish a la Sid was fantastic. To stay around as long as this place has, you have to have good food. They do!

For years I have driven past Green Turtle and never knew they offered breakfast on Sundays (or any other day). Everything was excellent, service was great, and I will go back next time I am in the Keys.

We had the ribs and prime rib and both were delicious. Service was just average, actually it could have been better. The server never came by while we were eating to see how everything was. When she did we were ready to leave. But we did get seated without reservations and they did have the Food Network filming in there... More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch. He had some delicious fish tacos with grilled Mahi Mahi. I had a special salad with seafood cakes. The salad was almost too beautiful to eat and it was fresh and very delicious. The service was average. Our server took care of us but acted like she'd rather be anywhere else. We... More

Lovely modern restaurant on the site of the old Sid and Roxie's. Great breakfast choices. I love the green turtle breakfast and the salmon plate. Also good for lunch or dinner. Wine and liquor also available. Not open on Mondays.

I have been here several times now, for all types of meals. Service is inconsistant, with some great and some less so. I now tend to sit at the bar, where I find things a little bit better. The drinks from the bar are good. though I did find the bloody mary to be less so, surprising since they apparently... More

Sid and Roxie's Green Turtle Inn has been around forever (since 1947) but I had never eaten there, so we stopped by on our way to Little Torch Key on the recommendation of my sister, who had hosted a business dinner there. We went for lunch and I love the old fashioned turtle sign out front and casual atmosphere inside.... More

My family and I went here three times while on vacation - twice for lunch and once for dinner. Food was great every time. Service was just okay. Their lunch salads are huge and delicious - very fresh.

We take a trip once a year to the keys and we make sure that this is one place that we ALWAYS visit! The food is great and so is the service!
