The Turtle Club at Vanderbilt Beach / Restaurant and Bar

Focusing on fresh seafood and fine steaks and chops served in a spectacular beachfront setting, the restaurant quickly became a favorite “secret spot” for local Neapolitans. No longer did exclusive national hotels or private clubs dominate fine waterfront dining. The secret has been out for some time now, and the restaurant has consistently been voted the area’s top restaurant for waterfront dining. With a focus on casually elegant fine dining, hospitable and caring staff, outstanding food and wine, and excellent value, the Turtle Club continues to win rave reviews from both loyal locals and out-of-state newcomers. This is a GREAT PLACE!!
