Very nice waitress (Steve) did everything she could feeling us at home. Food and prices are diner style. light battered sea food. Didn't try the broiled fish. Overall a 3 out of 5, but I'm a very picky customer and food critic.

Rude service, dirty , they have not changed in years. The booth we sat in was falling apart. And the food was not good at all.

Have been a long time customer of Jimmies but felt the place was going down hill so tried Turks for the first time. Will now become a loyal fan of Turks. Service is good and prices are reasonable. Fried scallops are very lightly breaded so you can actually taste the scallop. French fries are head and shoulders better than Jimmies.... More

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

Took over an hour to get broiled and fried food... Cold and over cooked, no one was even in the restaurant. I could understand if they were busy...

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

The service was excellent. The waitress was so pleasant and efficient. I had the broiled scallop,stuffed shrimp and... More
