This restaurant is old fashioned in that they care more about food than about decor or ambience, although the ambience is quite good.

Their new site is always packed and has limited parking. We try to get there early on a Friday to reduce wait time. Food is good and so is the service I enjoy having their sangria and I buy their salsa for home. They have a great atmosphere and have a small patio when the weather is nice.

I looked up the Green Turtle on Trip Advisor because we saw a young man waving a sign (dancing....). We were already walking right by so we took a chance. Indoor seating seemed small and a bit dark, so we sat on the deck. The view of the water and harbor was nice. The menu was limited but appealing. I... More

Upon having a Saturday evening dinner at the Green Turtle, the experience was delightful. Service was superb, the menu displayed good choices and the food was prepared and served in an excellent fashion. The appetizer which we chose was presented well, although the serving was quite small (for 2 people) and could have been more generous. The main entrees were... More

Had lunch here. No kids menu but there are some things kids can eat. Ceasar salad was very good. Great view on the harbor.

Went to lunch with my husband and daughter after having been there several times in the past for dinner and lunch. Host/ server was not very congenial or inviting. The view is always a plus, but the restaurant needs a facelift and a good cleaning - it seemed shabby.Lunch was extraordinarily expensive. My $17 salmon burger was mediocre and bland.... More

Visited on a weekday evening -warm, sunny night. the view of the inlet - and Mt. Rainier probably the best in GH. Food was great - not your "standard" selections, and timely.

We weren't expecting such a nice experience as the way we decided to eat at The Green Turtle was because of a guy standing on the corner flipping an arrow sign while hopping around to music from his earbuds. We sat on the deck overlooking the entrance to Gig Harbor. Cloth tablecloths...was the first sigh we were going to be... More

We've celebrated many an occasion here. Generally find being on the deck the best due to a rather small place inside. The food is always top notch and the service to match.
