Can't say enough about this institution in Islamorada. Have had breakfast, lunch and dinner here and all were great. Service was prompt and friendly. Always plan on stopping here at least once or twice on each trip.

My husband and I have been coming here for years. It's a landmark. I'm sure Sid and Roxie would NOT be happy. The decor and atmosphere is nice. Everything was clean. The food was excellent!!! The service left us wondering What Is Going On!? The Host/Manager was very polite, professional and deliteful. However, the waitress had a rude, arrogant attitude.... More

Stopped here again,, one year later. As before the food and drink were perfect. I had the Prime a Rib special and my wife enjoyed the days catch of grouper. Cooked to perfection and very tasty. We had a great bottle of wine to compliment our selections. Service was really good but the bartender could have smiled a tad more... More

We should have walked away upon entering at 7:30 PM on a weeknight. Only one table was occupied. But, we sat (4 of us) and got what we deserved... Mediocre food at luxury prices. Atmosphere and service were very good. Won't be back. Makes me wonder who is really submitting their TA reviews.

We sat at table 11 and Diana was our server. I was so disappointed going back to the keys were before every where we ate had lump crab and not these crab cakes. Now all they have are crab cakes every where. I noticed on the menu they had lump crab but not with the meal I wanted. Well Diane... More

We chose the Green Turtle Inn as another great sounding dinner choice in Islamorada and were very pleased. Although the lamb and beef dishes sounded great, we chose seafood again, because we're in the Florida Keys after all. All dishes were well balanced and nicely presented. I had a beet and goat cheese salad, which was a classic take on... More

Lots of seafood choices and different preparations. Nice, friendly Keys vibe. Good cocktails, too. Recommend the Key Lime Martini for something different.

Our last night of vacation we stayed at Cheeca Lodge. Decided to go down the street for dinner. All we had heard about Green Turtle Inn was wonderful. There is just something about the evening atmosphere. Kinda like a Cheers place -- you just feel right at home. The food was amazing -- hogfish, steak tacos and double baked potatoes.... More
