Interior was a little old and dated but you could fault the $9.99 Sunday brunch. Plenty of choice and reasonable portions. However poached eggs were either overcooked or microwaved - they were a little rubbery. Free orange juice, Bloody Mary or mimosa all included in the price so cheap eats.

The food was just as good as it was some 15 years ago when I was here last. The server was inattentive as the kids and I ran out of our drinks and we needed a couple of condiments and wanted to order more food but said forget it after waiting on out server to finish talking to the manager,...

We sat at a lovely table overlooking the bay. However, the service was slow and our server was very sweaty. The food was OK. We tried the bang bang shrimp appetizer, the clam chowder and the coconut crusted mahi. All were just OK. Our son had a grilled cheese and didn't care for it. After we tasted it, we agreed.... More

I've been here quite a few time and can't say that I have had a great meal, the food is good but not excellent. The main reason I go here is the view, a nice calm meal overlooking the water, I always bring visitors here just for the scenery.

This is not a place we will visit again. The only positive was the view. The food was not worth the price and was not the best in quality. Bread was stale, portions were small, and the potatoes and vegetables were not tasty.

We have been to Turtles on many occasions and are never disappointed. The Sunday Brunch is an excellent value and delicious. Our current experience was a boat trip with our granddaughter on a beautiful July afternoon. Waitstaff was welcoming and accommodating and food was freshly prepared and served in timely fashion.

My wife and I love Turtles! We came here for the last night of our trip to Siesta Key on July 6th. We talked with quite a few people at the resort we stayed at and asked them where their favorite place to eat was, and as you might think we got a multitude of answers. Several names were equally...
