While in Savannah, we were searching for a casual seafood dining location. We found Tortugas through Trip Advisor, and really enjoyed our meals. The breeze was blowing in the windows as we enjoyed really fresh seafood.

This is a little spot sort of hidden from the tourists. But we had a local with us when we visited, so we lucked out! Fourteen of us visited for dinner a couple of nights ago and had wonderful wonderful fish! We started with the fried shrimp appetizer (and several of us at the table ordered it as an entree!)....

This little no-frills restaurant offers a casual place to dine and a menu that surpassed expectation upon first glance. As someone who likes shrimp and grits and has tasted numerous versions all around Savannah, I'd rate their version reasonably good although the taso ham was very chewy. I'd take issue with the prices when considering this eatery, as it lacks... More

Off the beaten path and not touristy. We went there on a Saturday night and it wasn't busy at all. The fish is great. Best swordfish I ever had!

This was my first time to Tortuga's. Pulling up you'll notice that it appears like many other small restaurants on the coast, not much to prompt you to come in. There is parking behind the restaurant, something of which we weren't aware. The interior is a hodge podge of mismatched kitchen tables and chairs, the decor is much the same... More
