I've been going there for lunch for many years now. In recent years I have made a point to have a waiter named Wayne serve my table. The guy is a character!

The Turtle Club is an ideal place to spend the afternoon with friends and cocktails, drinking in the view of the ocean and bathing in the persistently calming Gulf breeze.
The menu is long on flavor and short on choices, but any of the few selections of chicken, beef, seafood and bread may soon be your stand-out favorites. The flavors are very distinct, and each plate is served with excellent presentation.
I had the Caesar salad with the seasonal fish, which was grouper. I really like grouper and salad (separately) but the Turtle Club managed to make them fit together in harmony both on the plate and in my smiling stomach.
Why only three stars? The drinks are not too strong, but the prices are. Also, the portions are a little svelte. A $15 salad better have me mooing like a cow from the volume of greens I ingest, you know what I mean?

Had lunch on Saturday afternoon at the Turtle Club...you can tell it's starting to get back into season in Naples....there was a 20 min wait for a table outside. It was a gorgeous day, so it was ok to sit on a beach chair and enjoy the breeze.
This time, I tried the Seafod Bisque....the best I have ever had!!!
The raspberry iced tea is homemade and delicious.
This is my favorite lunch spot in Naples!!

What a great place! Located on the sand, in Vanderbilt Beach. Very casual, amazing food and…

The view is fantastic if you are lucky enough to get a spot on the beach, we were with a large group so I got to see a touch of the water.
For starters...the bread....UNREAL. I tried to stop myself at one, but went for seconds, and the mixed drinks are large and strong...just the way you like 'em!!!!!!!!!! Especially dining with family...
The seafood is really excellent, we an amazing scallop appetizer with a pineapple sauce. Also got a very average ceasar salad to start. The rest of my family that had the seafood had nothing but great things to say...the halibut special came with marinana sauce...a little weird in my book, but the fish was great.
My entree was the tenderloin and shrimp. Came with 4 very large shrimp with a good flavor with a pile of mashed potatoes underneath...after 2 pieces of bread, what else could you need My tenderloin was slightly overcooked and a tad dry, but still tasted good...but what knocked this down a star was the fact that beef came with a garlic butter already on it...kinda gross. I didn't want to be a HUGE bitch so I delt with it, althou I do NOT like garlic butter on meat...a little au jus would have made the meat fantastic. I don't believe that garlic butter should be served unless it is upon request...it ruins the meat!!!
We opted out of dessert as we had it at home, althou I am sure it would have been nothing short of fantastic, I saw a waitress walk by with some cake that looked unreal.
For a beachy good time and good eats, give this place a visit!!!

Eaten here a few times and love the location and the ambience. Great menu and wine list. Stunning beach dining. Only the heat and humidity of Florida can detract from the experience.
Having dined here twice I have to say the food isn't anything special. While you can't find closer dining tables to the Gulf of Mexico you can find better food elsewhere. So...if you're looking for an awesome view and average food...this is your place.

Keep it on the top of your list when you are in SW Florida. This is a spot not to be missed. Friendly, clean and very tasty. I had the blackened grouper sandwich that was to die for. Much like Kate G.'s review- this place is worth the many trips and valet parking! The wife had the club sandwich which was also very good. For the price, you really get a great value- terrific food, good service and you are about 30 yards from the GULF! The only thing between you and the water is a couple of sunbathing beauties! But, you are there for the great food, too!!! The service is excellent- not perfect, thus the four stars.

There is nothing like dining right on the beach. I love coming here for lunch and have to say I have been here many times, only to have tried two things: 1) The Famous "Grouper" Sandwich and 2) the burger. Both are delicious. The grilled grouper is really the way to go, though, and is served with a good citrus remoulade.
