This is a very casual restaurant with such good food and service that we ate there 2 nights in a row for dinner. The first night we had steamed crab legs and steamed vegetables--- a very nice selection of vegetables with seasoning /sauces of your choice and delicious yellow fin tuna tacos! The second night we had steamed shrimp and vegetables and yellow fin tuna tacos again because they were so delicious.The food was a great value for the quality of food received.

We went here for lunch after several folks recommended and it did not disappoint. The Coco Loco was wonderful - lots of flavor. My son enjoyed his burger. The peanut butter and chocolate pie was fabulous - loved the real whip cream with it:) Server was prompt and prices reasonable!

My fishing buddy and I had a tasty lunch at Tortugas' Lie yesterday. We both had the tuna sandwich, which was tasty, quick, and simply done. Service was polite, good and speedy. There are two dining areas; we sat in the one not attached to the bar, so the noise level was low enough that we could easily converse.
We have stopped there before for lunch and enjoyed it. We were there in early May, before the busy season, so it was not crowded. During the Summer it is likely very crowded.
