“Great Little Lunch Stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2014 NEW

My wife and I stopped in for lunch based on reviews from Tripadvisor. This was our favorite meal of our long weekend visit. I had the Blackened Sheephead BLT sandwich and my wife had a chicken breast sandwich. Both of us agreed that our food was great. My sandwich was really good. The fish was local and fresh. The combination of flavors was very tasty. The sweet tea was great. The service was great. The atmosphere was great. It was just an all around great lunch. Of all of the places we have eaten in Savannah, this will be one we will repeat visit every time we go to Savannah.

“The locals love the food here ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2014

We went to this small restaurant with friends who are locals and who have eaten here many times. The shrimp poboy sandwich was no longer on the menu but the chef fixed it upon request. My wife and I had shrimp plates which were excellent. You can order off the lunch menu until 5:00. The service was excellent and I will come back next visit.

“Fabulous Find, Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2014 via mobile

We stop in as often as we can! The staff is incredibly nice, and very accommodating. I'm a vegetarian my husband is not. While they don't have many vegetarian options on the menu, ask Craig, owner and chef, he always makes something perfect! His wife Anne, makes killer bread pudding! Try it out. Worth the drive from downtown, located right on the river in Thunderbolt, GA.(*Thunderbolt Marine right up the street*)

“Great find for lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2014

We were on our way to Tybee Island and were looking for a place to stop and eat lunch. Through Yelp, I found Tortuga's, and we were so glad we did! It looked a little questionable from the outside, as it is in a small strip center off the beaten path in Thunderbolt. It is a hole-in-the-wall cafe, but it was clean and everyone was very friendly. We had one of the most delicious sandwiches we've ever eaten! It was a blackened red snapper BLT with fried green tomatoes. It was fantastic!! The waitress told us they catch all their fish themselves, so it is always fresh. She said they have a diver who goes down 100 feet and spears the snapper! It was a delicious sandwich!! Would really love to have one right now!
