You can't eat here often if you're trying to avoid heart disease, but for the occasional fried seafood it's worth the visit. You can dine in the dining room or fast-food side. If I scored for cleanliness, I'd have to knock off a star or two. The bathrooms are in desperate need of a renovation. If you appreciate local establishments... More

Just discovered Turks and had a great meal of shrimp cocktail and fried scallops. So fresh and delicious. I can't believe that I haven't been hear before. Always thought it was a high end dinner place but it was hardly that. It was friendly with delicious and reasonable food. We sat on the take out side and ordered food and... More

This is a long time local favorite. My mother-in-law loved it and it's a safe choice for dinner. I've been there three times in last five years. Wife, a local girl, has attended many times . It nowhere approaches the great experience of Stowe's, further down Captain Thomas Boulevard, but far superior to the deteriorating Jimmie's across the street. If... More

There is a very well priced weekday early bird menu which has many seafood options for 11,95 these are the same dishes that are priced quite higher at the other seafood restaurants in the area. The waitresses were good and efficient. It runs from 11 to 5. Some windows have a decent water view. It was a quiet place when... More

My dine in experiences have been fair, but I do enjoy the take out. The food is good, the shrimp and fried mozzarella is great!

Good food at a decent price. Not the fanciest place in the world but a Westie mainstay. Savin Rock memories still alive at Turks

Turks is a restaurant that has been around for many years. I have gone there since I was a small child. It's been in a few places but the quality and taste of the food has always been excellent. The food is fresh. By fresh I mean fresh cut french fries, fresh batter dipped onion rings, and fresh coated fish.It... More
