Small and old but worth a trip

This restaurant is a small and old building with Christmas lights hanging from the awning outside and just plain insides. The tables and chairs bespeak a relaxed atmosphere appropriate for the beach. We were at least hopeful that the food would be OK and found that it was excellent. I had the Hog... read more

Read other reviews on Trip Advisor, wow did they get this right. Not many cars there at first, locals just walk. Had the blackened local caught sheephead fish. Really terrific. Try the Jamaican shrimp as an appetizer. No room for dessert. The service was fast and friendly.

I had the Jesus and was mad at myself that I could only handle one meal. I would definitely go back again. Highly recommend the sunday brunch.

We visited on Saturday night and there was only one vehicle out front, so we were somewhat hesitant to go in. But since other reviewers had indicated that that shouldn't deter us from visiting, we decided to give it a go. We're very glad we listened! My husband enjoyed a wonderful bowl of steamed littleneck clams with Cuban bread and... More

We stopped in here mid afternoon and were the only people there, so at first we were worried. But once the food arrived, it was Wow, this is great food! We shared two different sandwiches, the Cuban and the Fried Green tomato, with yummy beans and rice. They were so good, we had to ask the server what the special... More

Started off as a local food experience search in 2013, but we found the food, atmosphere, and price just what we were looking for. Family owned and operated, we cannot fully express how much we enjoy Tortugas. The service is very good and we thoroughly enjoy the personal touch we receive whenever we visit. So far, after numerous different meals... More

We got to Tortugas right when they opened on Saturday morning. The food was excellent. The french toast with the pecan praline was outstanding. The service was quick. I would recommend this place and go back.

My wife and I go to Tortugas frequently and the food and service are always great. They make some of the best fish in Savannah. Always fresh and cooked just right. The Key Lime pie is the best.

My wife and I stopped in for lunch based on reviews from Tripadvisor. This was our favorite meal of our long weekend visit. I had the Blackened Sheephead BLT sandwich and my wife had a chicken breast sandwich. Both of us agreed that our food was great. My sandwich was really good. The fish was local and fresh.
