Owner description: Amelia Island's funkiest and frendliest bar! Come see us for great music on our porch! We are located in the heart of historic Fernandina Beach adjoined with Floridia's oldest hotel The Florida House Inn. Stop by and enjoy our great hand crafted cocktails using fresh local fruit and ingredients from our garden! Craving a great mojito? Got it! Frozen Strawberry Margarita? Got that! The best Old Fashoned Cocktail you have ever tasted? TOTALLY got that! Got it! And if you know of a bar with a better bourbon selection, please let us know where it is so we can go there for ideas! Start your island adventure with us for the best advice on what to do and where to eat! Pull up a bar stool and post up alongside shrimp boat captians, tycoons, authors, hippies, pirates, chefs, and the ocasional celebrity! This is where the locals hang!

Beers where priced right, the crowed was good and a lot of fun! The porch was awesome! We loved the place. We almost stayed all afternoon, but we wanted to explore. We will be going back often! Really enjoy this place!

Stopped by to see Johnny Miller and have a Bloody Mary. Pam has tried Bloody Mary's in many places and said "this is the best Bloody Mary I have ever had"! Kudos Johnny.

I think our bartender Johnny Miller was mentally challenged but was a great mixologist. Great bar with a local vibe. A+ ....

We had a blast at The Green Turtle. Stopped in several times during our visit to Amelia. Different bands and solo acts throughout the week and the bar had a major facelift since last year. They now have liquor and its all reasonably priced. Great crew. Johnny and Karey are the best! Don't miss it when you're downtown.

There are a lot of great local bars, but The Green Turtle has always been a favorite, especially now that they are a full-service liquor bar. They have a perfect historic downtown location. There's always great music, great local art, and an awesome staff. And if you're from out of town they'll make you feel right at home. There's something for everyone!
