Typical sports bar

It was your typical sports bar. The salad was fresh and the beer was cold. They offered a large array of options including burgers, wings and salads.

This has been a long standing lunch spot for us after golf. This year the beer was flat, food cold and service poor. After bringing it to the attention of the server there was little acknowledgement. Won't be back.

The wait was an hour so we decided to take advantage of their carry out. The lady at the counter was rude to put it kindly & the food was very disappointing. Maryland crab soup tasted like something out of a can. The fish from the fish & chips entree was left in the fryer way too long & were... More

Great place for a variety of foods. Everyone got wings, which were rather good. Coming from an area with superb wings, this is a major compliment. My father had a cheesesteak which he enjoyed, although it could has been a little larger. Personally, I had the Cowboy Burger which consisted of BBQ sauce, cheese, lettuce, bacon, onion straws, and a... More

We heard the Greene Turtle was famous here since 1975 - after late dinner last night unsure why. No reservations even for a group of 8, 45 minute wait at 7:30 (not that surprising here in Ocean City) and just OK food. Service was good. The Men's room was a disaster & just about unusable. Don't step on this turtle... More

I've been to a few Greene Turtles. The menu is always huge, and they have great food. I ordered the crab flatbread appetizer as my meal. It was delicious. The wait service was okay, nothing spectacular. We waited about 10 minutes for a table but I'm not sure why as there were many open tables all around us. The place... More

I ordered the fish tacos which were cold and unflavorful. I was really disappointed and hate wasting money on bad food. Probably won't return. Also, the waitress didn't seem to be very knowledgeable. Afterwards, I mentioned my experience with the hotel clerk and was told that they would've given me better choices.

The original Green Turtle is one of my family's favorite restaurants in OC. Classic MD character throughout the restaurant and bar. They have great happy hour deals and very generous kid's meals. . The kids ordered the corn dog meals which come with 2 corn dogs and the Sliders. Both were very well received by the kids. Shrimp salad was... More
