Visited the Painted turtle while traveling with a bus tour with Gate 1 travel. Beautiful setting for the restaurant but that would be as far as I would go. They had a set menu with limited choice and what they offered was average at best....More

A more varied menu than you might expect, and good quality food in a great setting. Hard to imagine you can do better in a town of this size.

This restaurant is situated on the Dutch Lake RV resort and has a very nice terras overlooking the lake. The food was very good, the seafood jambalaya was amazing. The service very friendly and correct. Overall very good.

I agree with many reviews on here. This is an average restaurant charging really high prices. The reason being it's location by the Dutch lake. There are better places to get fed in Clearwater.

Basic fish and chips at very high price. Chicken in spicy cream sauce was just a basic chicken curry at a very high price. Disappointing evening meal out.

Charming place. We were there mid morning for coffee and a snack, and we loved the setting on dutch lake. There are turtles In the water along the bank. Absolutely worth a little detour.
