“Decent restaurant on the water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

Went the other night for daughter's birthday. Excellent food and service. Had the chicken taco which was just okay - couldn't find the avocado in the taco so not sure what happened there. Hubby had a burger and daughter had ribs. Daughter found the original rib sauce spicy for her as it has chipotle in it. Gave our daughter a free birthday brownie as well which was a nice touch.

Have had the pizza before too and prefered it to the tacos. Overall excellent service, pretty good food and nice patio for an evening meal.

“Great eats and view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

First night we dined inside due to lack of availability on deck (it was a beautiful night). no reservations - these should be allowed for 8+ people. Service was quick and food was excellent.
Sat on terrace during the day for lunch - again excellent but we ordered appetizers and french onion soup - our delivery was quick however our friends (2 tables) were served must slower due to ordering 'meals'. We were finished and went shopping - they were just getting their meals.
Bang Bang Shrimp was awesome !!

“Best option In Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Turtle jacks has a good menu and positioned right on the water. On a night with good weather, it is one of the few options in Port Carlin and is certainly a great option. The menu is typical with burgers, pastas, chicken and sea food but is quite good. Would recommend.

“this place is embarrassing.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Waiting 30 minutes for our scantily dressed server to return just to find her sitting at the bar in plain clothes getting drunk.... Are you serious? Had the chicken club asked for no tomatoes came out with no veggies at all. Sent it back and it came back just the same, with a side of cold red peppers. sent it back again came back server said "they made you a new sandwich" but they just stuck cold peppers onto my old sandwich!!! How brutal... what pathetic lazy cooks. Server seemed irritated at my displeasure. had to fight for it off the bill despite not taking one bite. Good thing this place survives on tourists because I would never come back.
