We have been coming to this particular Turtle over the last 4 years with 3-4 plus visits each year. Won't ever be going back. Had a party of 7 and every single meal was awful. The soft shell crab sandwich had crab on only one half and tasted awful. The salads that were ordered had clearly not been prepped. Filled with mud/dirt. At first thought it was just one bite...figured that it happens sometimes. But as soon as one person said something about it being in her salad several others said they had the same thing but didn't want to seem like a picky eater. Well it's a health issue to expect that your food is at least cleaned. Wondering if it is under new (but poor) management because we have never had anything like that kind of meal before. Oh, and the server we had was terrible. Could never find her, always needed to track her down to get drinks, napkins, silverware, plates. Couldn't believe she brought out appetizers without any additional plates when we had made it clear they were for the table. Everytime we looked for her she was up at the hostess station just chatting away. Manager did take gritty salads off our bill and offered to serve us something else. At that point what would've been considered safe to eat. We paid for the rest of our meals and got the heck out o there as quickly as we could. Will never go back!!! Bad food is one thing but risking your health is something altogether different and with a topping of bad service it just doesn't make for a repeat performance.

Beer, bar food, good service and good views of the game on TV. Sounds like a fun night to me!

The Greene Turtle is a chain and all of them have the same great food and TV's showing sporting events.To be honest, I like all the Greene Turtles that I have been too, not just this one. This one has a nice layout and great service. They also have a great party room off to the side, I went to a milestone birthday party there last year and it was perfect. No idea about the price, but everyone loved it.

Living in Calvert County, we've been to the Green Turtle several times since it first opened in Prince Frederick. Before that, we had been to the Green Turtle in Ocean City and Annapolis several times over the years. The Green Turtle offers a wide variety of steaks, burgers, sandwiches and other entrees. The prices are reasonable, the atmosphere is sports bar. There are televisions throughout the restaurant, with several tables having switches allowing patrons to switch tv channels to find the shows they want to watch during their meal.

We have used the Green Turtle for meetings as well; and it is always a big hit with the kids as there's always plenty to see and do. They even have a game room where the kids can play video games or pinball.
