If you love the Green Turtle franchise this is a must stop. It's the original Turtle. The layout is completely different. I've been going here for 20 years. The food is basically your typical Turtle food but the vibe is much better than your typical Turtle.

I always feel comfortable in this place. To me,it's more of a bar than a restaurant. But the food is pretty good. We visited twice last week for happy hour. Steamed oysters and sliders. Nothing to rave about, but the value was good. The bar help is very friendly and there's always sports on the tube.

Food was good but they sat us in the bar (with our kindergarten age son) and a group of guys was super loud and cursing at the games on tv literally next to our table. There was an entire section we could've sat in that wasn't next to guys betting on a game. Service was nice also.

I go here every year with the family just before we depart OC. It has always been fantastic food, but not this time. I believe the owner was eating with a family this day also as he was getting all of the attention. Don't get me wrong, our server was good! I started with a bowl of MD crab soup.... More

Was looking for a good spot for the Caps playoff game and pub food. Good happy hour deals- half off apps and $2.50 domestic beers. Featured the Caps game on the overhead speakers and most televisions so it was perfect for us. It was busy and only one server on the bottom floor. He kept up and our drinks and... More

I was in Ocean City for an event that weekend and decided to meet a good friend for dinner. He suggested this place since I had my boys with me so I agreed. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the meal was great. We ordered some wings as an appetizer and mixed the types. They were all great. I had... More

We arrived for dinner during Happy Hour. No hostess. Dirty tables. Closed section on one side. We asked to sit in the restaurant, but was directed to sit in the bar instead. It's Friday! It's a bar atmosphere. Got it. Just wanted to sit in the restaurant. I should have known when I had to search for a server that... More

Great place for a burger or steak sandwich. We like to eat on the balcony. Nice view of the ocean, and people watch.
