Turtles was good enough that we went twice in a week long vacation. It's conveniently located just across the street from Turtle Beach, and has a short but adequate lunch menu with typical resort area staples (think coconut crusted shrimp). The seafood pasta and grilled mahi mahi were both well prepared. The menu tilts towards the deep fried, and salads... More

The filet was terrible and the grouper dinner was less than par. When we complained to the waiter he sort of cowered and asked if my husband wanted to send it back. Duh.. we had already waited long enough for our dinner so my husband ate only the center of his filet. Then to make matters worse, I mentioned how... More

We went in time for the "Early Bird" menu that ends at 6 pm. So did everyone else! It was busy. We were given a buzzer and only waited about 15 minutes before being seated outside on the upper tier. The view and atmosphere is wonderful outside. The waiter was friendly and attentive. I had the grilled grouper - $13.99.... More

This restaurant is right next to turtle beach and has an awesome view of the bay( ask to sit outside). The food is all fresh seafood from the gulf but they do have sandwiches, salads and burgers as well. The gulf shrimp and mahi mahi were very good. The prices are about 10-15 dollars a person for dinner and a... More

Ate here on a Sunday morning in February with Mom. Be sure to arrive early as the parking lot is busy. There is always a lineup to get in, but they give you a buzzer and we were in within 20 minutes. There is a place to sit outside as well while waiting. We had the brunch for $9.99 which... More

We were a group of four and arrived just before the close of early dining discount prices, so we had a fantastic meal at a great price.

This place is for the locals who know what good food is all about. With indoor and outdoor seating, Turtles offers comfortable tables for all. We had a mid afternoon pick-me-up, their delicious milk shakes all round.

I had a wonderful chopped salad that has stayed in my mind. The service was friendly and attentive. There is plenty of parking too.
