One of the best burgers I have had in a long time. My father had the fried shrimp which were fresh, local and delicious. Both our meals were a good value ...bang for the buck. They made us some tasty Bloody Mary's as well.

My 84 year old father and I have a lot of burgers under our belts and both of us agreed this was amongst the best. Just the right fat content and quantity of meet and perfect marriage of bread, Swiss and sautéed mushrooms. Bloody Mary was also a stand out. FREAKIN AWESOME!

It is a little pricey but it is very tasty. The crab cakes here are amazing. Every item my family ordered was tasty. Come here after a trip to the beach.

We just ate brunch here for Mother's Day. We had a table of 4 adults and 2 children. Our server was good, and the food was good. However, about 10 minutes after we paid our $65 bill a teenaged boy who seemed to be acting as hostess/busser came to our table and said "excuse me, we need you to leave... More

I used "near me now" and found this place. Cute atmosphere and the food was really great. I got the Jamaican Hot Mama and it was delicious. Friends that we were with all enjoyed their meal as well. The waitress was also kind and helpful.

I've been to Tortugas several times now. For breakfast I had Crab Cake Benedict. What a unique and awesome dish. Plenty of crabmeat and combinations of spices! An I entrée enjoyed for dinner was their Chutney Grouper special: Quaint restaurant with an attentive and knowledgeable staff of servers. I will visit every time my journeys from Virginia Beach takes me... More

After stopping in Savannah for the night, we needed a place to eat breakfast but didn't want to leave the dog in the car. Tortuga's had a few outside tables, and immediately brought us a dog bowl with fresh water. Breakfast was delicious! My husband had fried eggs on a baked potato, with sauteed veggies and a bed of fresh... More

Found this place on TA. Exterior was not very inviting, interior plain and nothing fancy, sports memorabilia and art for sale. Front Doors were open and the place was covered with flys. Ordered a hamburger. Waited 45 minutes, for a hamburger?

This restaurant was recommended to me during a recent trip, so I made a point to go there for lunch on my way to the airport. I had a Blackened Flounder BLT and it was really, really flavorful and made perfectly. My side dish was cole slaw and you could tell it was made fresh, not a weird premade cole... More
