We stopped for lunch here on the way through town and were very glad we did. The restaurant looks new -- very clean and offers seating inside, outside or in the spacious bar. The crab soup and the other entrees we had for lunch were very good, and they had a selection of local craft beers.

We dined here later in the evening, and there were only a few tables in the restaurant; so we expected service to be fast. We were wrong. After ordering a Beer, it took 15 minutes for our Waitress to bring in to the table. The food, however, was very good. I had the Tomato-based crab soup, and a crab cake... More

In a nice area just a block off of the main road (301) through that part of MD. Menu has variety but I love a good burger and it jumped out to me, I wasn't disappointed with my choice. Superb and good fries too! There's a lot of 'chain' restaurants around there and while technically this is a chain, it... More

We have been 5 or 6 times since it opened. It seems like it's not as good anymore. The food was ok & the service was slow including the kitchen. The bar seemed busy but the rest was not crazy so i am not sure why our service was so bad. We did not complain & I still left a... More

Spent an evening with friends at Green Turtle. Enjoyed patio area and drink specials. Had fish tacos which were great. Someone ordered the nachos too. The price was not cheap but not overly priced. The service was great. Very friendly young lady. We watched part of Monday night football game on one of the many large screen TV's. We left... More

Loud music from bar made it difficult to carry on a conversation. Food was good. One of our party found something in his dinner. It was handled well and he was not charged for any meal. Drinks took a long time to arrive.

We are new to the area and decided to try the Green Turtle, it was a lazy Saturday and decided to call in and go pick it up or have it delivered. To start off, when I called and asked if they delivered the girl said yes so I proceeded to give her our order and then after I was... More

My girlfriend and I eat here all the time. I would say that it is my favorite sports bar in the area. The food is normally very tasting, and most things are a good value for the money. There are TVs all over the place, including in your booth so you can watch whatever you desire. Sometimes on really crowded... More
