Turtles has seating inside and out and a relaxed atmosphere. We had good service which isn't always the case when you have a party of 8. We all enjoyed our food and the view. They offer early bird menu options from 4 - 6 pm.

This is a basic pub restaurant but does not disappoint. The service was excellent and the food presented in a nice way and very tasty. Good choice available.

Went here for drinks and appies. Waitress was very rude and argumentative. Specialty drinks were outrageously expensive ... $9.75 each - did not appear to have very much (if any) alcohol in them. Will not return here!

Were visiting friends down the key and found this to be a fun and convenient meeting place for a quick bite. Service was quick and friendly. Conveniently located.

Went here twice in once week. First we stopped just to pick up appetizers to take back to our time share. The staff was just great and amusing. The wings were not good. They were not done to my liking and you could tell they were just frozen and recooked. On a positive side, they they just about gave me... More

Went for lunch. An eclectic and enticing menu. Did not live up to its promise. The crab bisque was like none other that I've had (and not in a positive way). No sherry and lots of what appeared to be canned tomato sauce. The salmon BLT was indifferent. If you're on a boat, head south to the Casey Key Fish... More

We stopped in here for lunch during our stay at Siesta Key. We waited about 10 minutes for our waitress, Allison, to take our order. The food was slow in coming. I ordered the Philly Steak and Cheese and was not impressed. Not much meat and the meat was overcooked.

We've eaten here twice on vacation to Siesta Key. The outside patio is nice, spacious and pleasant. The food is average but certainly not the worst we've had on Siesta Key. Service is friendly and timely. We like the casual atmosphere. The house wine comes in a carafe and is a generous pour. We like this place.

The restaurant had an ideal location as we were staying right by turtle beach. No taxi fares or designated driver negotiations needed here. I often feel apprehensive when you are essentially a captive audience due to limited choice, but as soon as we walked in, the feeling disappeared. There was a good buzz and it was warm enough to sit... More

Stopped here for a quick bite to eat as it was close to where we were staying. Standard/typical American food at reasonable prices. Nice atmosphere, staff friendly. Closed at 21:30, which was a little early. Menu: burgers, fried food, fish and local seafood.
