Great live music!
Jul 2021 • Couples
This place is awesome. A little hole in the wall bar with a cool deck with live music. The music was amazing. The bartender was awesome too. I think we were there for 4-5 hours. Great spot to go to if you like live music and laid back atmosphere!

Great Atmosphere and local vibe!
Jun 2021 • Friends
Great local place in downtown Fernandina Beach. We found ourselves there three nights in a row. Love the laid back neighborhood vibe. The music was great and we especially enjoyed the talented entertaining “Str8ght Up Band” on June 25th. We will definitely be back !

Great music every night we went!
Jun 2021
We stopped by for several nights for drinks and music. Each night there was a different band, and none was a disappointment. Fun place to relax.

Nice Hangout
Apr 2021
We visited here twice. Live music was great, the outdoor garden area was a nice place to get away from the crowd, but still hear the music. Local hangout, but some travelers as well. Easy to get to and walkable to many places.

A place with character!
Apr 2021 • Couples
Cool spot just off the Main Street with lots of character! We really enjoyed it 2 nights prior to dinners elsewhere. On a Thursday a great singer guitar player was on the porch. A full band out back on Friday. Fun place and great people watching! Seemed to be a lot of locals which is always a good sign. Dog friendly.

Everything You Want in a Outdoor Bar
Sep 2020
One of the highlights on our trip to the area. Great outdoor vibe, wonderful live music, fantastic energy and people watching, comfortable place to hang out and take in the libations. Must stop in the area.

Only one bathroom?
Aug 2020 • Couples
To be fair, I do like the vibe and setup of Green Turtle on a nice evening. However, after a couple drinks you run into an issue - there is only one bathroom. This just doesn't make any sense when you have lots of people DRINKING. A toilet at Lowe's only costs $99 - let's start with that.

Party Vibe with great live music on Patio
Sep 2019
Was walking around the historic district on a Thursday evening and it was hard to miss the awesome music coming from the patio outside the Green Turtle. So we stopped in to have a few drinks and enjoy the music.

There was a happy, friendly party vibe, and both the locals and tourists were friendly and welcoming. The drinks were good, and the music was awesome!

The duo performing was called "Sweet Sweet" and consisted of a male who sang and played guitar, and a female who sang and played Cello. They were very good and I really enjoyed their set.

Monday Nights for Live Music
Nov 2019
Most people go to The Green Turtle on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays... BUT Monday night is when you get entertained by a great local band, are waited on quickly, chairs can be had, and there are no bathroom lines!!! It's the same great place we all love but enjoyed on a more laid back night. If your schedule can handle it, visit The Green Turtle on Mondays.
