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!
