We have often visited Turtle's & were satisfied … decent food & great waterfront location but this time?? Two of the 4 of us ordered red steak . bad decision! Both cuts were poor ,,, tough, grisly uneatable. No chance to complain as waitress disappeared, only to drop off our cheque & run. By the food left on our plates,... More

Nice place to sit on the patio and enjoy the water view and the quiet from the fast paced north end of the island.

We were bike riding and stopped here for a drink and an appetizer. We sat outside on the patio and it was very enjoyable being by the water. The service was good, coconut shrimp was good, and our drinks were good. We would like to go back again and try a meal in the future as we loved the outside... More

My husband and I came for dinner with our teenage son. We put our name in right away, requesting outdoor seating. Found a high top in bar to get some drinks while we waited for our table. No one came to take order so my husband went to the bar to get our own drinks and bartender said someone would... More

Happened to get to this restaurant very early - they were super busy. We found out they have both happy hour 3-6 and early bird specials at the same time. It was packed. they did seat us at a table for 2 near the deck, but it took a while for service- which was OK for us- we had traveled... More

Located south on Midnight Pass Road on Siesta Key, it is in the more residential Turtle Beach, Little Sarasota Bay area. It is very popular and no reservations - it is first come/first served. We were there for dinner and waited about 15 minutes for a table for two. We were seated out on the patio overlooking the water at... More

I went for the 2nd time recently to Turtles and had a pretty good meal for a reasonable price. We both decided the fried avocado bites sounded interesting, and they were good with 2 Coronas. I then chose the coconut crusted fish, which was quite tasty, while my friend had the crab bisque, which had lots of crab in it,... More
