“For the price, not impressed.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

We tried the Green Turtle last year in OC...we will not go back. The Green Turtle we have by our home is cheaper and has better food, cleaner facilities and faster service. I thought we would grow old and die waiting for lunch here. The service is so slow, the waitstaff appear as though they would rather be anywhere else. The food was also unimpressive. I got a burger, it was the driest burger I have ever had. I really do not recommend this Green Turtle at all. There are many other places in Ocean City to eat, where you can receive fast, attentive service and excellent food!

“Good Happy Hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

I have been to the Greene Turtle a number of times since arriving in Ocean City last month. Never been disappointed. Good cold beer, lively crowd and average to good food at a reasonable price. The daily happy hour has $2 drafts, steamed shrimp at $5 ½ lb plus .50 oysters and calm plus a daily special. As an example ½ priced dinner salads on Wednesday..average priced at about $5.50. Large and good! Service at the bar is very good but the table service really depends on the server. Overall one of the better local haunts!

“Other than a nice waiter, the place was unimpressive”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

Not impressed at all. Ordered crab dip sandwich. Came with chips that were the bottom of the bag--crumbs. Sandwich ok---they use the same crab that they use for their creamy crab dip appetizer and added tomato and bacon. Wings just ok.

We were there for Monday night football.....the "specials" were not impressive with the selection of food or the price. The place is overpriced in general........and we're not cheap.

The waiter was very nice....he spilled a little beer on us when he was serving it, but accidents happen and he was nice enough about it and so were we.

I would not go back..........there are so many other options. We were surprised they have a little shop that sells t-shirts, etc. Really........I think they may need to rethink that.....the food was mediocre, overpriced....we would not spend more money on a t shirt.

“Drinks, Food and Service...Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

We had a large crowd 20+ and they did great! All of our friends had a variety of food from soup to hamburgers to fish and chips to ham and cheese sandwiches and they were all pleased with what they ordered. Orange Crush cocktail was excellent as well!
