Whenever we have eaten at the Green Turtle - we have enjoyed ourselves so much. It has a sports bar type of atmosphere and is large and roomy. They have both the classics and some trendy and up to the moment dishes as well! It is one of my favorite places!

Great late night spot if your looking for dancing, music and karaoke. Check it out if you're looking for something to do on a Wed night in Southern Maryland.

The servers at The Green Turtle are better trained and helpful than most servers at chain restaurants. Tables and floors are always clean, and the noise level is acceptable, even fun as a casual place. All the menu items taste fresh and well seasoned; the chicken tenders are especially good. Prices are fair, too.

We had a enjoyable dinner, fried pickle spears and pretzel sticks were a decent appetizer, burgers were the fare of the evening, brownie sundae was the highlight of the meal. We hung out at our table for a good three hours and even though the place was packed and people waiting for a table, they didn't hurry us out of... More

Parking was not fun. Spots fill up fast, so get there early. As you walk in, there is the hostess and if you look straight ahead and slightly to the right is where you can sit and eat. Immediately to the right is the bar area. The food was ok, but nothing to write home about. I got the fish... More
