Our second visit this week. Our waiter Curtis was very attentive and offered menu suggestions when asked. The calamari appetizer is very good as are the daily fresh catch selections. Sunset view from outside tables is a plus!

We visit Naples 4-5 times every year, we would not miss coming here! Most time we dine 2-3 times while in Naples! Excellent 5 star food, as well as ambiance, and wonderful service! Most beautiful sunsets every evening!

My husband and I were celebrating our birthdays. His was on July 9 and mine was on the day of our dinner July 17. We had a great table near the windows over looking the Gulf. The food was delicious. We were both happy with our meals. The waitress was attentive. We were pleased to each receive a wonderful complimentary birthday key lime pie dessert. The Turtle Club is one of my favorite restaurants. Being on the beach makes it the best choice for a special occasion. We enjoyed the sunset outside after dinner. It was a perfect evening.

While the oysters turtlefeller was great , the rest of the food was fair. When we arrived at 6: 30 pm the restaurant was almost empty. They seated us next to the bar and runway where the servers went in and out. Halfway through our meal the bar got very crowded with people standing t6hree deep banging into our table and spilling drinks. It started to rain outside and there was a mad dash to get the outside diners indoors. Once again our table was right in the middle of it. They could have seated us anywhere else. We travel to Naples very often and will certainly cross this place off of our list.

Started outside. Got rained out. They moved us in and made it seamless. Like this restaurant. Wish it was more available in season. I cannot make reservations weeks ahead. That seems to be the only way to book this place in Feb and March.
Still a nice experience and pretty simple plates. My kind of place.

Watching sunset was great. It wasn't very busy but we made a reservation anyways. Sat outside on the sand. Our server was good but not amazing. She didn't come and check on us that often to the point where I had an empty glass in front of me half the time and had to wave her down to get another. Luckily when our food was dropped off we didn't need anything because she didn't come and check on us until we finished our meal. Fried calamari was the best I ever had. Angel martini was great. I got the sea bass and it was really good, not as good as uss nemo but still ate the whole thing. My husband got the filet and it was perfect.

Love the Turtle Club! Each time we go we have a great time. Just walking through the tiki torches sets the tone. Then on to the magnificent ocean view of the Gulf and the fabulous sunset steals the show! The food is always amazing, paticularly the twin lobster tail special! Cheers to good service and an amazing dinning experience at the Turtle Club Naples Fl!

Even though I'd made a reservation with OpenTable and spoken with the restaurant directly about an indoor table we were told that non were available for us when we arrived. After a little fuss we were asked to wait at the bar and a table was eventually found for us some 45 mins later.
The starters and mains were all very good but my wives Key Lime Pie was soggy and tasteless. This was pointed out to the server who remained apathetic throughout saying "if you want good Key Lime Pie go to Key West"... Disappointing to say the least. At this point the server lost all interest... except in the size of the tip.
On the whole the night was good and the food excellent but it was a shame to be somewhat spoiled because of their 'over booking' and lack of customer care.

This was our first time trying the Turtle Club. We were pleasantly surprised and will definitely return. The food, prices, ambiance, service was outstanding! The number of shell fish options were extensive on the list and the portions were large. We have dined many times at other restaurants such as trulocks, the bay house, roys, balleen, etc... We not would put the Turtle Club above all these others. The food was a bit better and the pricing more reasonable compared to other restaurants mentioned. i would recommend sitting outside as sunset for a wonderful view.

can't beat the views....outside dining is also avld...you are looking at the beach views....and sunsets are amazing! Great menu...can have app's and drinks too. A hidden gem...must visit if you are in Vanderbuilt Beach area!

The Turtle Club can't be beat for atmosphere - but only if you have an outdoor table! I've never sat inside but since you have to walk through it to get outside, I've seen it many times. I wouldn't accept a table inside; I'd rather walk away from the reservation (which isn't easy to get). Not only is the interior dull, but traffic is constantly passing through to get outside - NOT a good plan. The food isn't the best in Naples, but it's a B+ Service is generally very competent. If you want a reservation in the winter BOOK WEEKS AND WEEKS IN ADVANCE.

My wife and I enjoyed an early, relaxing dinner where the food was exquisitely prepared and service was top notch. This was my second time back, and once again found this place to be quite pleasant. Look forward to returning one day soon.

One of the best dining experiences I have ever had. Arrived at perfect time. We were there July 4 weekend. I thought crowd on the beach was for planned fireworks until I saw the perfect sunset from the beach at Turtle Club. Service and food truly outstanding.

VERY NICE LOCATION, RIGHT ON THE BEACH, WHEN THE SUN SET IT WAS UNBELIVEABLE. ALL
THE I PHONES CAME OUT AND HUNDREDS OF PICTURES WERE TAKEN.
FOOD WAS GOOD, SERVICE WAS A BIT SLOW, HOWEVER, IT WAS THE 4TH OF JULY WEEK-END AND THE PLACE WAS PACKED. IF YOUR IN NAPLES AND YOU LIKE TO EAT BY THE WATER, THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO.

The food and service at this very special seaside restaurant was excellent! We went with our daughter and son-in-law and our six-month-old grandson. Not only was this a family-friendly space, whether eating indoors or out, the staff did everything possible to make sure we were accommodated with a young child, while providing one of the best seafood dinners we had ever eaten (and we live in Manhattan, NYC!). We will be back any time we are in Naples!

Of course the ambiance and view are outstanding but the food is the true star. We ordered the Rack of Lamb and Roasted Chilean Sea Bass, both had wonderful pestos and sauces. I stole all my husbands grilled artichokes, best I have ever had, including lots of them in California where they are superstars. We will return for other special occasions. Kudos to the chefs!

Excellent menu and all our choices were highly rated by our party of 4. The shrimp and sausage dish was just spicy enough and not overwhelming at all. The mahi mahi and shrimp was excellent and the black grouper was as good as my guest had ever had. The sea bass was also excellent.
