“Great Conch Fritters!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I ate at the Thirsty Turtle yesterday, found it (on TripAdvisor) while driving around getting our bearings. The wait was a bit more than we expected, but it is a popular spot and was only about 20 minutes. The bar staff was very friendly and gave excellent service. I took his advice and had the blackened grouper sandwich, while my wife had it fried. Both were great, and reasonably priced ~$14. But we had the conch fritters for an appetizer and they were great! Loved the spicy sauce. I'd recommend and would return there.

“Great place to have fun with friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

We loved this place. It was within walking distance of our hotel and everyone at our table enjoyed their meal (group of 4). It's definitely a bar atmosphere. The service was a little slow, but I think they were a little understaffed. The food was so great we went back another night during our stay in Juno Beach,

“gave it a second try and glad we did”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Vacationing in the area, we were looking for a friendly kind of place for dinner and a few drinks. We walked to the Thirsty Turtle. We were met by the bartender who acted as if he could have cared less if we were there and didn't have the time to wait on us. We had one drink and left without ordering dinner. We returned a couple nights later, to give the place another try. We had no interaction with the bartender and seated for dinner. The hostess and waitress were very pleasant, personable. The food was very good and we are glad that we didn't let the bartender deter us from stopping in again.

“Dinner at Thirsty Turtle”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Food was ok, but a bit pricey. Atmosphere was fun and a good place to take children. Conveniently located near our hotel and the beach.
