Food was just ok...a little overpriced for the quality
no bread presented here...they dont serve it
lobster bisque was not hot , sent it back and it came back same temperature
overall food was just average, there are a lot of other locations in the area that are more deserving if you are looking for food...
if you are looking for outdoor ambience on the beach, then it is a nice site

Host was rude and dismissive.
3 orders of Sea Bass undercooked..slimey
1 guest had shellfish allergy, felt safe ordering sea bass, came without the topping..no mention of this when she ordered and no comment when it was served. She had to ask why she did not get it. Turns out it had shellfish in it. Why didn't someone mention that?
Dessert came with dinner forks..on of whine had a piece of old pasta stuck to it.
We went here because it was on the beach but it was entirely closed off so no view of the beach at all. It wasn't that cold!
One in our group was celebrating a birthday. This was mentioned at the time of reserving, also when confirming and again on arrival. It was totally ignored. If they don't observe special occasions some mention should have been made of that at least one of the 3 times it was brought up.
Overall a very expensive way to be disappointed!

What a find! My husband wanted to celebrate my birthday with a special sunset dinner. This was our first visit to Naples, & we were told this is about the only place in Naples to dine & be able to see the sun set! This was our best evening in Naples! Great food, service & sunset! We had a very patient server, Nano, that willingly took our picture. We would definitely come back if we are ever in Naples again! Book your table online for outdoor seating WAY in advance. We were fortunate that someone cancelled. 😊

I've been looking to try this place for over a decade so happy to have found them on OpenTable. Unique blend of casual, beach/ocean view and class. Meals were far better than I expected. Service excellent too -- much thanks to our server who happily re-seated us inside when I noted an approaching storm that was likely to arrive with our dinner. Overall I wish I had gotten to this place sooner. Will return.

Fabulous, the evening weather didn't cooperate that but we still had a great time thanks to staff. They were very accommodating to our group of 8, when the weather suddenly turned for the worst they had a table set up for us inside. We continued our evening inside and we all had a wonderful meal. Thank you Turle Club you are one of the best places to dine in Naples.

Sea food specialty, although many other items. Service was great. We ate three evening meals there with a different waiter each night. Prompt, knowledgeable, courteous service. Food well prepared. Good wine list for all tastes.

The Turtle Club is our favourite Naples restaurant! One of the few actually on the beach and with a great seafood menu and wine list! As far as we are concerned our stay in Naples would not be complete without a couple of e enings here

We went here for Valentines Day Eve since they were sold out on the day itself. We were seated outside which was wonderful, where you could watch the sunset....and wiggle you toes in the sand! The food was excellent.....filet was done to perfection, the grouper with crabmeat was the best I've ever had, and the salmon was beyond yummy. The service was excellent and our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and drinks. We would definitely dine here again!

Had a wonderful dinner. For an appetizer, had the sweet & sour calamari, which was served on a bed of soba noodles. It was to die for! Would have licked the plate clean if other people hadn't been around. Pear/pecan/gorgonzola salad was tasty. Filets were cooked perfectly. Will be going back again--as soon as we can get a reservation, that is. This place fills up months in advance. I can see why.

We had not been to the Turtle Club in several years. During that time, it felt like they added several tables and we felt very tight - almost like sitting on top of people on either side of us. It was not as comfortable as we remembered. The food is excellent - there were six of us, and everyone enjoyed their meal. Service was fine - not exceptional, but about what you would expect. A solid, but not great, experience. We will not rush to go back.

Loved the view, service, and food. One problem however was they did not serve bread or even have any available to buy. Provided a type of cracker, but no butter available either. Waitress said they stopped this a couple months ago. Unusual practice for such a fine dining place.

The Turtle Club is an excellent place to eat on the beach, enjoy some cocktails and have a very good meal. Although the food is not excellent, the views from the beachside dining area more than make up for it. Service is excellent and if you get there for sunset you are in for a special treat.

I have been a long time patron of Turtle Club. The location is unbeatable and the staff pleasant and efficient. This time I invited special friends. I ordered a favorite, sea bass. Normally it is flaky and moist. This piece was inedible, thick and grisly. My server was apologetic and brought scallops but they were also chewy and cold. Not up to par at all. Even though they comped my meal, I will think twice before going there again.

I’m reluctant to share thoughts about most restaurants after only one visit. You never know if you hit a particularly good or bad day. Because my visit this week was full of conflicts, I thought I should share my experience. First and foremost, the food was fabulous. The preps were elegant, tasty and extremely well executed. All of the multiple types of fish that we ordered were beautifully prepared. On that basis alone, I would not hesitate to return.
Now for the conflicts. Prosecco ordered for two of the guests at the table was warm. An abomination? Hardly. Disappointing? Sure. Service was friendly, professional and excruciatingly slow. Is it a great atmosphere in which to lounge around while waiting to be served? Absolutely!

The Turtle Club is one of our favorite restaurants. The ambiance of sitting on the beach watching sunset as you dine is breathtaking, They have a varied menu with some long standing favorites . The only disappointment was that they no longer serve bread. They brought us same flat crackers. We asked for butter and we're told they only have drawn butter.

I had been there before but I brought 4 people that hadn't and they all loved the place. They told me afterwards it was a good choice so you pass the test!!! :) We had a great waiter but I will admit I am terrible on remembering names :( but he was awesome and great personality and fit right in with our group as we like someone lively!!!!
Loved the turtlerockfeller oysters, I think they are the best by far in Naples!
