Locals love it

The Prime Rib is the primary reason for visiting the Turtle, but they have a bar (both alcohol and salad) as well. The food is great (if not a bit heavy sometimes), and the service is solid as well.

Heard alot about this place - we got there and they had a free taco bar before the restaurant opened. The price was right. Once we got seated we had the salad bar (which was very good). I'd had the halibut the day before somewhere else and loved it - so opted for that over the prime rib, which we... More

Previous visits to the Turtle club were very good. Last 2 visits, I gave them the benefit of the doubt. 3rd time was NOT the charm. They are really going downhill fast! The prime rib is chewy and the au jus is clearly out of a can - SO SALTY! All the sides taste canned now. It is a long... More

Kind of pricy but the best place near Fairbanks to get a great steak. Yes, they have salad and desserts, but we go strictly for the steaks.

This was my first visit to this restaurant. Our party was 6 of us and we were seated at once. The staff had water and bread on our table at once. The menu while limited has a very good selection. We all had the prime rib and the cuts were very generous and well prepared. The salad bar is well... More

The food there is excellent, the help extremely helpful, service is quick, it is very family oriented, a fantastic salad bar. We each had a prime rib dinner that was cooked to perfection and very tasty. Waitresses were always available for our needs. Very friendly atmosphere. We go there often.

No visit to Fairbanks is complete without dining at the Turtle Club. Our family celebrates most of our special events at the Turtle Club. Your dining experience begins with the best salad bar in Alaska. The Prime Rib is so good that many folks order the larger portion sizes so that one can continue to savor it at home later... More

This place said to have the best salad bar in Fairbanks. It wasn't much by national standards but it was good. Their prime rib is more than enough for a hungry person's meal. They have a good selection of beers and homemade desserts. Service was friendly and good. When you get to the dirt, mudhole-filled parking lot you know this... More

This restaurant is a bit away from Fairbanks, but it is a 'must not miss'. The salad bar is very good and part of your meal - it was great, but don't fill up. We had the Foxy Cut Prime Rib and the Alaskan King Crab Legs (1 1/2 lbs.) and both were outstanding! We still took a lot home.... More
