Great food and service.

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. The combination... More

We went to this small restaurant with friends who are locals and who have eaten here many times. The shrimp poboy sandwich was no longer on the menu but the chef fixed it upon request. My wife and I had shrimp plates which were excellent. You can order off the lunch menu until 5:00. The service was excellent and I... More

We stop in as often as we can! The staff is incredibly nice, and very accommodating. I'm a vegetarian my husband is not. While they don't have many vegetarian options on the menu, ask Craig, owner and chef, he always makes something perfect! His wife Anne, makes killer bread pudding! Try it out. Worth the drive from downtown, located right... More

We were on our way to Tybee Island and were looking for a place to stop and eat lunch. Through Yelp, I found Tortuga's, and we were so glad we did! It looked a little questionable from the outside, as it is in a small strip center off the beaten path in Thunderbolt. It is a hole-in-the-wall cafe, but it... More

Ten minutes from downtown Savannah you will find this hidden gem. Great fresh seafood. We liked so much we ate both lunch and dinner here. Had blackened Grouper BLT for lunch. Great sandwich lots of fish and got their homemade chips as a side. Had crab cakes for dinner. Two huge cakes loaded with crabmeat and a zesty sauce that... More

I had looked forward to eating here based on the reviews and agree that this is a hidden treasure. Easy to find but kind of off the path more traveled. A small intimate location that had 8 tables. There was a party of 5 elderly patrons and a party of two women when we walked in. I was hungry for... More

My family was visiting and wanted seafood. We planned on going to Tubby's. It was very crowded and did not look very handicap accessible for my nephew's power wheelchair. So we decided to try Tortuga's, which was just down the road. We weren't sure about it because it was small. But we were pleasantly surprised with the service and food.... More

Feels like a family experience. Great place. We've been for lunch and brunch. Never disappointed. The blue cheese chips are the best.
