This place is amazing, food and drinks were good, portions are very generous, Service was amazing just ask for Dishon , we did not stay at the resort but we were there everyday for both lunch and dinner, Couldn't have asked for a better waiter. Entertainment was great from Crab races, movies, trivia or fire dancers you can't go wrong... More

Thirsty Turtle at Bananarama was a convenient and good option throughout our West Bay stay. They are located directly on the beach, a few steps from the calm, warm, clear, water of West Bay Beach. The menu covers a fairly broad selection, both local and sadly too many American options, but nonetheless, done well. They also have a full bar... More

The servers or the bartenders will not recommend any other restaurants to anyone.. Which is pathetic - the food is very bland- OVERPRICED - and it's a cattle house service

2 for 1 Monday special is great. The pizzas are by far the best in West Bay. The cocktails are excellent and sometimes too good. The entertainment was great and the service friendly and helpful.

We ordered a lobster special, each meal costing 15 dollars, it was not amazing like I like my lobsters, not special, like the person cooking was not in on it, lobster has its own taste, you don´t need to ruin it, and I feel like the sauce was instant soup, yeah... But we had this Bananarama drinks, those were good.....

The Thirsty Turtle is right on West Bay beach at the Bananarama Dive resort. This is great especially if you have kids as they can literally still swim in the shallows while you eat and drink Nighttime the Thirsty turtle had the most activities like live music, fireworks (on july 4th), charity crab races, and fire dancers Seems like there...

Casual and barefoot, my entire family thoroughly enjoyed the evening at Thirsty Turtle Bar & Grill, situated just a few feet from the crystal clear ocean water. Our server, Dishon Calderon, was friendly, professional and attentive. We all loved our dinner choices and stayed to listen to the very entertaining band! The evening was a total pleasure!

Dishon, one of our favorite servers, made our trip even better. He was very polite and friendly. Make sure you ask for him!!!! The food... More

Food was just bland. Quality of each item was good- fresh fish, shrimp and veggies. Just the chef cannot put it all together to make it tasty. Service was good. This is a place for spring break college students who want to drink and get something to sop up the booze. Do not use Norman for a water taxi or... More
