We ate lunch and dinner here several times during a recent trip. The food was always very good and the servers were very friendly. The only down side was that they seemed to be understaffed when we were there so it always seemed to take quite a while to get the attention of a server to place our order and then if we needed anything during the course of a meal (more drinks, ketchup, etc.), we had to walk up to the area near the bar where servers enter their orders to request it because the servers didn't have time to come back and check on our table. Similarly, we had to track down the server and request the check at the end of every meal. There were two times when we waited for over 20 minutes for someone to take our order before giving up and walking up the beach to eat elsewhere. Both times, I am sure the food at the Thirsty Turtle would have been as tasty and probably cost less than where we ended up, but we were too hungry to keep waiting for the overwhelmed waiter to get around to our table. I would definitely recommend this place, but it is probably best to go there when you are comfortable waiting a while for the great food you will get.
