“Great local seafood in a great location, excellent service and casual, relaxed ambience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

I've been going to Turner's for years, and they have continued to deliver great seafood and a reasonable price with fantastic local flair and warm friendly service. Their raw bar is delicious, and their bar selections are appropriate given the City's regulations. Family and kid friendly, but a fun adult night out as well. Their fish is as fresh as it gets, you can get fish and seafood to take home, as well as their delicious chowder.

“LOVE THIS PLACE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Just went for dinner recently with some friends. I used to go a LOT years ago, but moved and had not been back in a while. Was a Friday night and EXTREMELY CROWDED. However, food was awesome - got lobster bisque - VERY good! Service was excellent, had a fabulous time. Highly recommend this restaurant!

“Solid Seafood in the Suburbs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I've been going to Turner's since I moved to Melrose in 1996. I have never, EVER had a bad experience there. The food is solid - fresh local seafood, mostly simply prepared. The service is good. The prices are reasonable. It's cramped and loud, but I don't mind. Definitely call ahead if you're planning to go on a Friday or Saturday night. They don't take reservations per se, but you can get your name on the list.

“Very Good Seafood in the Suburbs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

I have eaten here several times a year since they opened, and have never had a bad experience. The food is always fresh, flavorful, and served hot (or cold depending on the dish). The servers are knowledgeable, and know just when to approach - and when to stay clear.
It can be a little noisy when the dinner crowd is in full voice, but it's not obnoxiously so.

They also have a small fresh fish market, great for bringing home to the grill in the summertime!

Two thumbs up :-)
