The food here is very good and affordable. We were seated quickly after entering. The waitstaff were at our table taking our drink order shortly, very attentive. The food arrived within a short time. We were overall very pleased with our dining experience.

Went in expecting typical Tex Mex food but got a real surprise. The décor and the view of the gulf from the patio are great, especially at sunset.

We were looking for a quick dinner after getting into Galveston late and the Tortuga fit the bill. It was a little like walking into the Denny's of Mexican restaurants, but the staff was excellent and the food was good value and tasty. The menu has a little something for everyone, and the drinks menu was pretty standard fair for... More

Bad margarita, salty chicken fajitas, no one around to bus dirty tables...this was not the Tortuga's I had visted many times over the past several years. Better off choosing Salsa's further down on Seawall Blvd.

We have been coming to Tortuga's for years. It is as good as it gets. Service is great, food is better. I have the stuffed pablano, a real treat. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting real Mexican cuisine

Had a good meal here at an odd hour - 4 p.m. on Friday. Good margaritas, good enchiladas, solid service. Everything seemed very clean and for convenience you just can't beat it. Must be a local LEO favorite too, we watched some of Galveston's Finest go in for lunch the day after we were there.
