It was ok

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... read more

It might be OK as a sports bar but the food needs some improvement to get to ordinary. Staff inecperienced, unfortunately unless the food improves they'll never be experienced.

Food was ok, honestly the best thing our entire table had was the tater tots!! If I were to visit again would def get a large order of those !!!! Shell raiser beer was good very comparable to new castle! Service was OK but def not the best ever!! Not a overly impressive visit but not terrible either!

The Green Turtle is a serious sports bar. They have about a dozen TVs with at least 6 games on at the same time.They show sports like soccer, hockey, and stock car racing in addition to the big three - baseball, football, and basketball. They are also serious about their food and service. The meal we had was better than... More

Visited this sports bar while visiting family. The service was extremely slow and the food disappointing. I had what was supposed to be fish and chips. The tiny pieces of fish were rolled in something that resembled thick dough. Just bloody awful! My family members were equally disappointed except my daughter who had the cowboy burger. I am crossing this... More
