The Turtle Club is our go-to favorite for special occasions. This event was our Anniversary and we brought my Father with us. They accommodated his walker with the flat surface outdoor seating. We had a terrific server, Doug, delicious food and wonderful weather. We had guests walk by and say Bon Appetit! It was a charming and special evening - as always - at The Turtle Club! Thank you!

The Turtle Club never fails to deliver a remarkable dining experience. Whether inside or out the view is beautiful. The menu is varied and the food is divine. We've always enjoyed excellent and friendly service.

The food, the service and the ambiance at the Turtle Club is always very good. Customers should be cautioned that the valet is insistent on leaving the car keys on the front driver's tire and the lot is across the street and not monitored. I asked them to lock it and secure the keys and they refused. this is the second time that I have asked them and they refused both times. They said it was their policy.

Love the Turtle Club. When vacationing in Naples, we make sure we go there for our Anniversary. We were greeted by a friendly Hostess who wished us H.A. Seated outside in a nice spot overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Truly Beautiful setting. The manager came by to also see how we were doing and wish us H.A. as well as our pleasant server. Food is awesome there, we get the same thing every year it's that good. Shrimp on Kielbassa with steak. Delicious.

It was a very nice place to eat. A bit pricy and fancy for us southern simply folk. It's a small dining area, inside which make it a bit loud. I don't think we will go back but we will tell our friends about it.

We celebrated our 43rd Anniversary at the Turtle Club (here on a vacation) and we loved it. Do not go without reservations. Outside seating is on the beach and very casual dress. Inside seating (where we chose) should be Country Club casual. Do not wear shorts, bathing suits, flip flops, etc. OK on the beach sitting for lunch. Please do not go from the beach and sit indoors. They will probably not turn you away if you insist on indoors, but be courteous to the diners who dress Country Club casual. Excellent food and service. We will definitely return on our next trip to Naples!

Initially, our experience was positive. The waiter was accommodating and helpful. However, we had requested they omit almonds from our son's dish (allergy) but the dish was served with almonds. The food overall was pretty good. The oysters turtlefeller were delicious. The wait attention waned mid-way through dinner.

Amazingly wonderful food with a one-of-a-kind view of the Gulf of Mexico. Nothing beats it. Very romantic and scenic, indoors and outdoors. Worth every penny.

Great place for a sunset beach dinner. View was spectacular and service was excellent. Food was all prepared exactly as ordered. Almost went back the next night because we were so happy.

Upon arriving an hour ahead of our 8:15 reservation, we were told that we could get a drink at the bar and sit outside while we were waiting for our table. That was all fine and good until we already placed our drink orders, (which were all different types of martini's in glass) and then told once we were served that we would not be able to bring them to sit outside by the Gulf View, but to sit in the courtyard which was more of a waiter station. We were not happy that they (A)-didn't have table bar service for those who were waiting for dining reservations and (B) didn't seem to even care! For an establishment of this caliber I would expect all of the waitstaff to be more accommodating to the wants and needs of the patrons. We were told when making this reservation that we would have a table on the beach. We were seated outside, but not on the beach. Our table was next to the building, next to the service entrance/exit. There were floor fans heavily blowing on us and they were extremely loud that we couldn't even hear one another. Our server was mediocre/did what he had to-nothing exceptional in his service. The food was above average, the Turtlefeller was superb. Doubt that we will return to The Turtle Club as Naples has many restaurants that exceed in all areas.

We've been there a few times when we visit Naples- the views of the sunsets are spectacular & all patrons are willing to snap each others pix!! We had a reservation & showed up early & they were able to accommodate us at a table right out on the sand. Our waitress was nice, but not as attentive as I would've liked or thought she would've been. After the salad had been served it was quite awhile before she even showed back up- tables that were seated after us had already been served...finally the manager arrived "the ticket got lost in the kitchen" was what we were told, a euphemism for "the server forgot to put the order in"?? Perhaps..The entrees were fair, nothing outstanding...expectations...thought we'd get the drinks comped?? no...nor a meal comped...we waited over 30 minutes for our entree. Will probably not return there for a meal.

It was our first visit and we will return. Food, service and atmosphere were very good. I would think of as The jewel on the Gulf.
Go for the view, not the food
Lovers of fabulous beach views won't be disappointed here. Outside dining is practically on the sand. Food, on the other hand, is unimaginative. Land & Sea combos seem to be the most recommended by the wait staff, but they disappoint. Worth a visit for the view, but don't expect an outstanding culinary experience.

Consistently excellent food & service. A classic supper club
I love the turtle club because of the view. Members of my party had some issues with bugs, you're right on the beach, so if anyone doesn't like sand, etc. they won't like it but in my mind, that's why you come here! Great sunset view.

Excellent meal. Sunset dining was very nice.
Seafood trio was excellent....all fish cooked to perfection. Asparagus ends should have been cut off not grilled...too tough. Calamari appetizer was Good choice to share with a group of 4. Desserts were incredible....berry tart with vanilla ice cream....carrot cake...chocolate cake and definitely go for the key lime pie.
