The Turtle Club - Naples Ratings and Reviews
We have been to the Turtle Club numerous times and had a wonderful meal and time. Sunsets are stunning. On this night we were celebrating my brother-in-laws 60th birthday. I made this reservation literally a month and a half before and requested an outside sand table and that it was a special birthday. Upon arriving I reiterated the birthday and they were like yes we have that. We were seated at an outside table but the furtherest from the sand on the concrete. When I asked about my request I was told they cannot guarantee a sand table. When they called to verify our reservation they should have stated so. We had the opportunity to wait about 20 mins at the bar for a sand table. We would have had we not been seated already. Our waitress was amazing and our food was exceptional. They never did acknowledge his birthday with a dessert or anything. All and all it really is a very special place.
Went here on Tuesday for a night out with my husband. We had a table in the sand in the third row from the beach. One disappointing thing was that they had a table closer that sat empty. Its quite scenic with the sunset and hearing the waves throughout dinner, but the food wasn't that impressive, with the exception of the apps we had. We started with the shrimp and crab napoleon and the oysters turtlefeller and both were delicious. We then each had $10 salads which seemed more like $5 salads and definitely wouldn't bother ordering again. Then for dinner we had the filet with crab and scallops and filet with shrimp and sausage. They brought my husband the wrong meal (and rather quickly corrected it). The food was ok but nothing to rave about. The sausage part of my meal was four thinly sliced pieces of kielbasa. The potatoes on my plate were cold. We tried the key lime pie for dessert and it tasted rather fake - again, wouldn't order again. If I go here again or suggest it, I'd say go for drinks and apps with a view and have dinner elsewhere. The food overall wasn't impressive.
We have been to the Turtle Club many times, and we have never had a bad meal. In fact, the meals are outstanding. I usually order some kind of fish, and everyone has been excellent. The scenery is outstanding. In season, you need to call way in advance for a reservation if you want to sit outside for the beautiful Gulf view.
We initially sat inside but staff gather around the bar if not busy and it was simply too loud
There were also some ladies (4) enjoying HO but very loud so we moved outside
It was a hot night but the fans helped and the view priceless -- food and service outstanding
Bring your sunglasses and the sun moves so you may be right snack in direct sun by the time you dine
Free valet parking ( but of course tip) can't wait to return
Stopped going to the Turtle club for a few years ago because the service was not very good, decided to give it another try a year ago and it was great, the staff was working together, I inquired if anything had changed and was told that management was upgraded. Well last visit, service was slow, the food came out great, but drinks did not, also it was my wife's BD and the waiter forgot to bring a candle or any form of celebration with dessert, he was not very attentive and very forgetful. Time to upgrade management again.
I always recommend The Turtle Club to any of my friends visiting Naples!! We were celebrating a 21st birthday and they went above and beyond to make it a perfect
Celebration! There is NO view like the one at The Turtle Club and NO service as good as The Turtle Club!!
We enjoyed the food and ambiance, not sure how the insect's would have been,
dining outdoors had there been no wind. Otherwise a nice patio. I would go there to sit on the many beach chairs on a nice evening for a few wines.
Menu a tad pricey for the offerings.
Very nice dinner by Gulf. Sat outdoor and had excellent service -- and delicious food.
Bit pricey but you get what you pay for -- no other seaside dining experience such as this in the entire Naples area! Make sure to make reservations WEEKS in advance, because this place books quickly.
Nice setting. However, since it was hot and we wanted to sit inside, we had to wait a bit to see if they could give us a table. They did, right next to the bar. As the bar got busier, it got nosier, and people were standing right over out table. The bar should be set apart a bit more from the dining tables. And, the waitress never brought us a bread basket which we noticed all the other tables received.
Turtle Club is one of the very best places to celebrate whatever... The staff is always very friendly and Sara is an outstanding server, who made you feel at home.. Crab cocktail was one of the very best around town. The sea scallops and lobster special where also very good. The only thing that was missing was some warm rolls or bread plus adding any organic items to menu. Thanks to Sara for making this one of best Birthday celebration our guest has had.
