My food (cheese grits with shrimp, home made biscuits on the side) was superb. My wife had a standard breakfast fare of eggs, bacon, sausage and hash brown casserole. Both of ours were good. Our companion ordered biscuits and gravy and found them to be...More

Stopped on our way back from Key West for the conch chowder as I remembered it. Last time 1982 and it was still consistent served with the bottle of sherry on the table. The best chowder I've had in my 42 years living in Florida.

Coming from a local, don't bother going in there after 8. Their website says that they close at 9, but they'll find any reason possible to turn customers away. Their employees' biggest fear is having to work past 9.

We stopped at the Green Turtle for lunch on our way home from a vacation in the Keys. The room was clean. The service was good. The menu provided enough choice for most appetites and the drinks were cold.
