The staff at the Green Turtle, especially Elena, were absolutely amazing! My fiancé and I and our guest do not have enough great this to say about the food and service Green Turtle provided! They were involved and available every step of the way, helped with the cost of everything, and worked with us on last minute changes. They made our rehearsal dinner, wedding reception, and the morning after brunch so memorable it meant the world to us! The food is incredible! Highly recommend!
Green Turtle Inn catered my daughter's wedding on July 2, 2019. From the moment we went to Green Turtle Inn for a tasting in March to the wedding dinner in July, we knew we had found a very special place and group of people. The food was delicious, the service great. Elena, who handled our event, listened carefully to what we wanted and followed through with grace and efficiency. The two other staff members at our event were so caring and made sure we had everything we needed. Green Turtle Inn contributed to making my daughter's wedding extraordinarily wonderful. I highly recommend.
"I have been eating at the Green Turtle Inn for years. The food is consistently fresh and delicious. You can see the kitchen and chefs when you walk in. The scallops are seared to perfection and taste like they just came out of the ocean."
"This place is absolutely the best breakfast I have had, EVER! Splurge on the Lobster Benedict. You will not be disappointed. Also try the turtle bun. It was huge, fresh, and amazing! I would come to the Keys just to eat here again!"
"The Conch Chowder was delicious! Cobb salad with chicken was fresh and very good, as were the collard greens. I ate at bar. Service was excellent."
"If you are traveling down the Keys and are crossing Islamorada, a great stop for lunch is the Green Turtle Inn. When a place has been around for almost 70 years, they must be doing something right -- and they are! The wait staff is friendly and helpful. Well worth a stop!"
"The Green Turtle Inn was, by far, one of the best meals during our trip to the Florida Keys. The wait staff was very attentive and pleasant. The food was amazing and the atmosphere cozy. We would recommend it to everyone!"
"Wonderful food and service! Our waitress gave the best recommendations. Amazing atmosphere. This was our favorite restaurant and dinner in Islamorada!"
"I highly recommend, as the service and food is more than above average. They have delicious gluten-free bread for sandwiches and some different choices that are yummy. Very fresh and savory."
"The sticky bun is unbelievable -- and enough for two people. You have to try it. The building is beautiful, fresh, clean and new. Stop next door to explore the liquor store or the beautiful clothing."
"We made this our go-to restaurant for the final meal on our vacation. The service is wonderful and the food is beyond comparison. I had the best scallop dish, ever. Plus the desserts are fantastic!"
"We go to this place multiple times every time we visit Islamorada. They have the most delicious breakfasts with the nicest waitstaff. Shrimp and grits, eggs benedict, pancakes, etc are all delicious. And a great bar for Bloody Marys and Mimosas! Love this place!"
“This place has been here forever. My Dad ate there in 1950!! It is way updated and way upscale (for the Keys) and better than ever (says 88 yr old Dad). Great menu, beautiful renovation, excellent service. Our favorite place."
“Great food. Nice atmosphere. As soon as the door closes behind you your nose will let you know you're in for a nice meal."
"This is the finest restaurant we found in Islamorada. The food was great and a good value for the quantity. The salads are exceptional and all food was of highest quality. The folks know how to prepare a meal."
"Food was outstanding! service was great and restaurant was very clean. Best food on the Island. Lots of history and many years of serving travelers shows."
