We ate here the other night and it was just ok. This is the original Green Turtle and, for the longest time, it remained different from the others in the chain. It was really special back in the day but now, not so.

I stopped by the Greene Turtle today for lunch. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. When you go try the angus burger, it is the greatest. Jean the bartender was great and has a smile that just won,t quite.

Not the OC location but the Lewes, Delaware location is about 30 mins north and they have a beautiful outdoor dining area. Lewes is very dog friendly!
