This is a good restaurant, but we couldn't believe that they were actually offering turtle soup! Know it is in the name but turtle soup is not acceptable in this time of trying to protect them. Wont eat there again because of this.

My wife wanted fish for our last dinner in Islamorada, so we chose The Green Turtle over Bayside Gourmet (appears primarily Italian). We each had a wedge salad which was cold and crisp with plenty of bacon and bleu cheese. We shared the hogfish prepared in a "meunière" style, accompanied by what seems to be the standard in Islamorada, rice... More

Friends of ours suggested that we visit the Green Turtle Inn during our trip to the Keys. We stopped in for lunch on our way home and had a very good experience. The restaurant is nice and the service was very good. The food was very good as well. Our family had your typical lunch fare - French dip, club... More

Outside of the special cheese hash browns (which tasted spoiled) the breakfast was very good. Priced just right.

Recently a friend of mine and I had dinner at the Green Turtle Inn at the bar. After a very good bowl of conch chowder I ordered the yellow tail snapper on the menu.(I have visited the Keys for over 20 years and always love the local yellow tail snapper). I was served a partially grilled entree with two small... More

Love the Green Turtle, and coming next week for a wonderful breakfast and the hash brown casserole is to die for. Also, shrimp and grits, and their fantastic Bloody Mary made with Cucumber flavored vodka. Is a little pricy, but so good and very filling. Cannot wait to go back.

Three ladies working there we're all a bit curmudgeony or awkward. Food was good, but I wouldn't say it was the best value on the island.

We chose this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews and couldn't have been more satisfied! Excellent New Year's dinner!! The seafood was spot on and the bacon crusted pork chop was the most juicy, tender, flavorful pork chop I've ever had! John K. our waiter was great! Really took care of us. Will definitely go back next we're in town!

The Green Turtle offers a terrific menu, with fresh fish and a wide variety of other delicious options. The inviting inn provides a perfect Islamoradan atmosphere, with a lively bar and very comfortable seating for diners. The service is exceptionally good, especially when you meet a waitress from Margate, NJ. When visiting the keys, don't miss a stop at the... More

The Green Turtle Inn stretches along the half mile section of the Old Hwy, which was the only road when the railroad ran down the middle of what is now the Overseas highway. The rooms are comfortable, the amenities are good. I had coffee, toast and eggs for breakfast.
