I always enjoy stopping in at the Tipsy Turtle for lunch and a drink when wanting a place to eat in Eagle River. My favorite meal is the Coconut Shrimp served with the Pineapple Salsa priced at $13. The Tipsy Turtle has a good location right in town and the outside porch seating is very pleasant. They have internet but... More

Stopped in here for a couple drinks with some friends. The bar tender was very friendly and so were the other patrons, Its a nice place to stop for a drink but not anything special.

Not much to say about the restaurant since we only went for drinks and games, but it seems to be an okay place after we spent over two hours there. We were a little perturbed by the bartender’s attitude. There was only one bartender and what seemed to be a couple of locals on a Wednesday night at 8pm in... More

The "Key West" atmosphere drew us into the Tipsy Turtle and we were not disappointed. From the Southernmost Buoy photo to the Tiki Bar and Mile 0 sign, the place is a little bit of Key West in Eagle River, Wisconsin. I ordered, at the recommendation of the owner/bartender, the Raspberry Daiquiri. I was NOT disappointed! It was excellent! I... More

Great bar to entertain out-of-town guests. Fun beach decore and music. Excellent drinks. Nice open air area to eat/drink. Even bean bag toss game outside to play. Food is very good, but a bit pricey.

Neat name, which is what drew us in, but just average service. Only 5 customers were at the bar when we arrived, but it took quite a while to get the bartenders attention. It was disappointing because this location near downtown is great. We would have stopped there more if service had been better.

The Tipsy Turtle has an island feeling -- Jimmy Buffett Music, Margaritas, Dos Eques... They have good fish sandwiches and peel-and-eat shrimp. The service is good and the servers friendly and efficient. The prices are a bit high for the area, but the food and service is dependably good. This restaurant is open only in the Summertime (Memorial Day to... More

Open seasonally, The Tipsy Turtle is a fun little hangout in downtown Eagle River. Hints of Key West in the simple decor, a selection of food is available to eat either inside or in the outdoor courtyard. Certainly worth a stop!
