The turtle shack is one of those places easily overlooked. It is located on A1A in Flagler Beach. From the outside it appears to be somewhat run down. It does however overlook the beach. I found this eclectic little place on trip advisor and am extremely glad I did. The food is outstanding and the staff very friendly and welcoming.... More

I'm a local, so I love sharing great places to eat for visitors or for those new to the area. This may be a place that you just drive on by, but DON'T! Stop! Eat there! The food is amazing! You can sit outside, ocean front and devour some great food. I either get the blackend Mahi fish tacos or... More

Stopped here on the way while driving through at the suggestion of a friend who lives here. Well worth the stop. First, the view of the ocean is beautiful. But the food is even better. Had a burger it was outstanding. And their onion rings are the best I have ever had.

Wow. So not impressed. Friends wanted to go here so I read reviews and heard their crab cakes and onion rings were great. O rings were great when they were hot but later later when cooler saw they were greasy. Crab cake pretty darned good. Service was sketchy and place was a dump Can't imagine any good reason to go...

I came here for lunch with 2 friends in the off season (Feb 2) It was very busy for the lunch rush, so the few servers were not enough. My order was ok, but I had a hard time getting the waiter/bartenders attention. My friends appetizer was not the way she ordered it. My food was ok , good Ahi... More

I ate a late lunch here today, accompanied by my fiance and our daughter. I had a hamburger with sauteed onion and provolone cheese. It was amazing! Our server was exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly. I believe her name was Megan. This was my first time visiting The Turtle Shack, but I will certainly be back for another burger!

You wouldn't really want to stop here if you were driving by; it's a largish shack and basically nothing special from the outside (and not so much from the inside either), but the crowds tell you different. It is popular and packed. Picnic-table seating, nothing fancy, but the food is exceptional. I went with a group of seafood lovers and... More

Avocado egg rolls the best! They do blackened mahi that is the best around! Food always fresh, wait staff always accommodating.

This small cafe is located on N. Ocean Shore Blvd. a short distance from the centre of Flagler Beach. Great drinks and great food served in a very casual and beach-style atmosphere. We also had good wifi here. Prices very reasonable and staff very personable and helpful. We had an amazing creme brulee for dessert.

Hadn't been to the Turtle Shack in years & went with friends for lunch. We were bad & split the most fabulous onion rings - the best I can remember! My husband had the Mahi Tacos that he said were okay & I had a chicken salad which I enjoyed. Fun beach spot that we'll have to go back to... More
