The Turning Point has an interesting menu with many unique and delicious items for breakfast and lunch. For the most part, my breakfast was exceptionally good. However, I was a little confused about a part of the menu that advertised FRESH SQUEEZED Orange Juice and Lemonade. The prices of these items would certainly be justified if, in fact, they were...

We are frequent visitors to this sunny restaurant right by the beach, but today was even more special. My father is 92 and has trouble articulating himself and sometimes forgets what he wants to say even as he's saying it. Servers are usually impatient; understandably, because they have to hustle and are busy. However, our server, Rita, bent down so... More

Turning Point has an amazing selection for breakfast and lunch! I am never disappointed when I go there. You will love your meal whether you choose to have breakfast for lunch or lunch for breakfast. Always clean, great service and food is cooked to perfection!

This place has really delicious brunches, but plan for a long wait. The service is slow, but you won't feel rushed while dining when you finally get seated. The food is tasty, drinks too. Advance reservations are not allowed so get your name on the waitlist.

After meeting a friend we decided to try a quick lunch. We were seated at a table that was not clean. We showed the waiter the pool of water on the table He responded that is no problem. We then asked for napkins that he allowed us to have piled up wet through our entire meal. For some reason our... More

Just stopped in to get a drink after a very long walk on the boardwalk and could NOT get anyone to even acknowledge your presence. Waited at least 15 mins and left.
