“The original”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

This is the original location and I was very excited because my husband and I love the Greene Turtle. It was a Sunday so the place wasn't hopping but the wings never disappoint. I had to have the Maryland crabcake and my husband had the burger. Good food and atmosphere.

“Just OK - Overrated”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

Food is just OK and nothing special. Some items overpriced. Our takeout order got messed up and of course didn't notice until it was too late.

The Original Green Turtle on 116th St. has gone way down hill. We tried to have a meal there last night and just ran into problem after problem. The place is dirty and too cramped to ever be clean. Air ducts were dripping water on 3 patrons that we could see. The food is all over the place. We sent a steak back twice, then gave up. Chicken on the caesar salad was old and dry. Salad was old and dry.
It has been a yearly tradition for our Family , but never again. They need to switch the staff with the Rehb. Beach location, we had a great meal there.

“Last visit a problem”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

We've been to this place half a dozen times. Everything was fine until the last visit. During that meal we had a fly in our soda, dirty utensils, multiple orders done wrong (such as cheese despite asking twice for no cheese), water brought with lemons more than once when we asked for no lemon (one of the waters that arrived with no lemon tasted more like lemon than plain water), they forgot to even bring drinks multiple times, and copious smoke blowing over our table from the front door that was open much of the time (probably also where all the flies came from). Staff apologized repeatedly but then kept making mistakes so the apologies didn't help much. To their credit they did take the fly soda and one order that was messed up twice and couldn't be eaten off the bill. This last visit was not at all like the others so maybe this was just a very off day. However I'm not sure I'd return.

“Good bar atmosphere but no outdoor dining”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Food is not too good, but the beer and atmosphere is good. Its perfect for night out for beer, but not a family friendly atmosphere.
