What a great place to gather for lunch. I had a delicious lunch: big delicious salad and a big half sandwich with a hot drink. The bill was under $10.00. I couldn't believe it. Our waitress was the most friendly, attentive, pleasant person ever. She made you feel you were the only one she was waiting on. Delicious. It is... More

We had a group of ten for lunch. The staff was very accommodating and moved 4 tables together for us with no hesitation at all. We were near the play area, as we had 2 small children. The toys were a terrific occupational ploy so the adults could visit. Our waitress was delightful, and service was excellent. Food was delicious-... More

Had to wait for a table in this cute little place close to the NCU campus. It was a pleasurable place and a great menu. Had the sirloin on mashed potatoes special and it was delicious. Would stop here again.

We had dinner at Turtles while staying in Eugene. The food was very good! Things we liked: nachos, salads, grilled wild salmon filet, spicy salmon sandwich, BBQ ribs and the blue plate special with roast beef.

Arrived 6:20pm seated 20 minutes later, no problem, it is Saturday evening. Ordered food and waited for 50 minutes. People after us got their food. Ask waitress about our food and never saw her again. We left after 1 hour and 20 minutes. Saw a yelp review that confirmed this is the norm. Gordon Ramsay help!

Turtles is one of our top favorite spots in Eugene. You can always expect the food to be fresh and cooked from scratch. We have never had bad food or service here. Great for a date or dinner with friends and family.

Turtles has an extensive menu of delicious food. You must try the nachos and the salmon cakes! I have not had anything on the menu that I did not like. Portions are large...so come hungry. Very family friendly, with "The Loft" bar if you would like a childfree environment.
