This restaurant has been around for over 30 years, and I've been here three times on vacation. I've never been disappointed. This time I ordered the fish tacos, and if I could have, I would have sent some home! They were that good! Very mild...More

Stopped on our way back from Key West for the conch chowder as I remembered it. Last time 1982 and it was still consistent served with the bottle of sherry on the table. The best chowder I've had in my 42 years living in Florida.

Coming from a local, don't bother going in there after 8. Their website says that they close at 9, but they'll find any reason possible to turn customers away. Their employees' biggest fear is having to work past 9.

We stopped at the Green Turtle for lunch on our way home from a vacation in the Keys. The room was clean. The service was good. The menu provided enough choice for most appetites and the drinks were cold.

We were literally just walking past on our way to catch the sunset when we decided to stop in for a snack and a drink to cool off. The warm welcome and refreshing a/c were reasons enough to grab a table and stay longer than...More

We are on a mission to find the BEST key lime pie and now the crust on this pie is the best we've had. We simply got the pie to go and ate it while watching the sun set. It is the most expensive pie...More

As we all know, bad service can ruin the dining experience, and Lindsey certainly did that for us. We saw her when she took our order, when she delivered our food, and when she hovered over us waiting for us to add the tip. Dinner...More
