Loud, cramped, and slow service

We arrived and was told there would be a 20 min wait even though there were multiple free seats. We waited and was seated in the bar area. It is very loud, but hey. It's a sports bar. There was only one waitress for the whole restaurant and you could tell she was stressed. She forgot some of our... read more

Just went to the original Greene Turtle with friends and had a great time during happy hour. Our waitress, Megan, was super friendly and helpful with our food choices. Can't beat the happy hour! We will be back!

Been a long time since we ate and drank there as a couple. Happy hour specials were very good plus they had bingo one night and trivia another for prizes. Had alot of fun doing that. Bartenders were very polite and helpful.

The place was nice. Crab dip appetizer was good, but the pretezels were just too salty and they could do without the butter sauce (too greasy). Got the shrimp and ribs combo. The shrimp was good but the ribs were small and burnt on the ends. They had good fries. I think just because of their name that people love... More

We are certainly pleased that you enjoyed our atmosphere, crab dip, shrimp & fries. However, we sincerely apologize that the ribs & pretzels didn’t meet up to your standards. We’re not immune to problems with the preparation of our food at times that would warrant someone not being happy with the food quality or if food is waiting for server... More

We are new to the area and one night went to the Greene Turtle in Salisbury. We really enjoyed the atmosphere, service, and food so when we drove by this location we decided to go in and get some appetizers. We were greeted by who I assume was either the manager or owner. He was pleasant at first. We were... More

Greene Turtle consistently has great food, though it is a bit pricey for what it is. Our service at this location was great, and it helps that we were able to walk from our hotel making it super convenient. We had vouchers as a part of our OC vacation package so that helped too!

Been to the turtle before. It is a great place to have dinner and watch the games. the beer is good and the service is excellent. I had a steak and cheese which tasted good, wife had a caesar salad with chicken. Not all places are open this time of year so this one did well for us.
