We went there to have a quick bite before meeting our friends. Good TV's all over and music played, we didn't have to wait to sit. The flatbread pizza is very spicy and not good

After searching desparately for a place to eat, not knowing that end of November most of Ocean City is boarded up for the season, I came across Green Turtle. Expecting typical bar food, I was pleasantly surprised. Fresh oysters, amazing crabcakes(very little fillers) and delicious beer. Highly recommend for hungry tummies.

When visiting Ocean City we were looking for a place to watch college football games, with tons of TV, mainly airing Penn State we were happy campers. Crab fries (a locals favorite) were awesome, fries with crab dip on top, you can't go wrong. Then salads, Maryland crab soup and a crab cake sandwich, all of our food was good... More

Love the food and service. I was expecting the crowd to be more rowdy with younger people being in there and it wasn't.

Take my advice... DO NOT GO HERE!!! The hostess walks over to us and garbles some for kind of statement (Still not sure what it was) leads us to a table and says nothing we sat for 15minutes in a NOT busy restaurant and no waitress or any person that was employed here said one word to us even tho...

We visited Ocean City after a long absence and thought we would give the original Greene Turtle another chance. It was near our hotel. The restaurant and bar had a good... More
