A large party of us dined here and sampled many different seafood entrees and appetizers. All were good, but I think my favorite was the spicy shrimp app.

Really good place to just sit out on the deck and watch the sunset. Moderately priced (for Siesta Key), offering few (but acceptable) vegetarian options, despite being a seafood joint. Great key lime pie too.

Enjoyed a relaxing dinner on the bay in June 2014. Second time we have visited Turtles. Food is good, average seafood prices, friendly service. The outdoor deck is spacious with a beautiful view of the bay. We also recommend this for group reservations as my brother in law had his wedding rehearsal dinner here 2 years ago. They have a private dining room on the second floor that has gorgeous view of bay and can seat approximately 30 people.

This is our second visit to this restaurant, mostly cause its the closest restaurant to our condo rental. We were here for dinner a few nights ago and came back for the Sunday brunch.

$10 gets you your choice of an entree and a Mimosa or Bloody Mary.
My Coconut crusted Mahi was very good, veggies were cooked just right.

You can eat indoors or outdoors, both look over the bay.

you just can't beat this deal.

We decided to eat at Turtles as it was just across from our rented condo. We had heard good things about it from friends who had eaten here before. We arrived and it was a VERY slow night. Our waitress was very pleasant and assisted us with our choices. We got our food in a timely fashion but thats where the pleasant ended!!! Just as we began to eat, one in our party discovered a HAIR in her grilled grouper. We called the waitress over and pointed out the issue and her response was "Oh yeah...that happens". That happens?? Seriously?? We were shocked by her nonchalant reaction as if this was an everyday occurrence! She did receive a completely new meal which was acceptable...if a meal can be acceptable after finding a hair in your food. I had the Maine lobster tail and King crab legs...very disappointing.... The lobster was...well small shall we say. And...the king crab legs were NOT KING crab legs they were regular small crab legs. VERY disappointing. The lobster was overcooked and tough. The accompanying roasted potatoes were good. I ended my meal with a piece of key lime pie which was a pleasant ending to what was a less than enjoyable experience. Clearly I cannot recommend Turtles nor would I return. Even after the hair incident not a single word from the manager and no offer to comp the meal. NOT good service!!
