    Green Turtle excels

    Every detail, every Green Turtle server/employee, every bit of food - all outstanding. Highly recommend the catering as well as the restaurant. Only the finest people succeed as Green Turtle & company have succeeded - and they did it prior to changing hands in 2004. Green Turtle excels!

    Exceptional!

    The entire Green Turtle team was exceptional in everyway! I've already referred multiple friends to them for their events. Can't wait to make it down to the restaurant for Wednesday night Steak and baked potato. Thanks again!

I had the pleasure to work with Green Turtle this past wedding at a wedding in Key West. The staff was phenomenal! They knew what team work was all about and helped accomplish a quick turn around from ceremony into reception for 90 people in less than 30 mins! Their professionalism was apparent and the food was delicious! I cannot wait to work with them again in the future!
