Busy restaurant, but didn’t have to wait long for service or food. Lovely views across Little Sarasota Bay and there are tables on the terrace as well as indoor seating. The day we went it was very chilly outside, so not many people were on...More

Went to Turtles a total of 3 times, while we visited Siesta Key. It is across the street from Turtle Beach and food was delicious. The large fried shrimp with slaw and French fries were out of this world. Prices are reasonable and the wait...More

1st time visit for my wife and me. Lovely Siesta Key location in a non-touristy, residential setting.

Meal, atmosphere, service, and pricing,...More

Food is good, but not special for us, we usually have the Grouper while in Florida, its the new fish taking the place of the tilapia , fresh water farm raisable fish, in the area.

We have always had good experiences here. The Bang-Bang Shrimp is always a hit in and of itself at the bar, with a cold drink. My wife had a spectacular flounder dish, and I had almond crusted grouper that was perfection! Can't wait to go...More
