Great Little Restaurant

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

The Tortuga Grill is quite small and its decor and ambience might best be described as quirky: if you like a white tablecloth and silver service, this is not the place for you! But, if you like fish and Southern style food that is properly prepared, this grill restaurant is not to be missed. It is clearly popular locally, (which... More

Not a bad little hide away restaurant in Thunderbolt Ga. Meal was good, but service was fair. Came in right before closing, so I will give them a pass. Will go back and try it again though.

This was our (boyfriend & I) first trip to Savannah. We were told by friends & co-workers how good the food is in Savannah. Just to divulge the entire truth, we are true Southerners so we know good food. Our standards are set pretty high. Before the trip, we combed through many TripAdvisor reviews & decided the first night in... More

My husband and I just went paddle boarding and then decided to head here for lunch. Awesome! We've been here before and are wondering..."why haven't we been back?!" He had the BLACKEND GROUPER GRILLED CAESAR SALAD...the romain was grilled. Soooooo good. I had the CRAB CAKE SANDWICH with homemade chips. THE BEST crab cake sandwich I have EVER had. Oh... More

Everything from beginning to end was perfect. In trying to avoid the downtown crush, we discovered this gem. Eclectic decor - original artwork and unmatched furniture only added to its originality. The food was excellent from the fried green tomatoes on. They redefine the portobello crab cakes and shrimp and grits. Give it a try next time in Savannah.
