Maybe once a year, we revisit this place, hoping that the food and service will have improved...always disappointed. It's a great location, right on the ocean, and when the sun is shining (almost always) and there's a sea breeze, there's no more beautiful beach in...More

Seated ourselves on the deck... promptly brought menus by our server Kimberly and she took our drink orders. She was very knowledgeable concerning the menu and the food came out very quick! It was great and the service was great also!

The history of this restaurant is very unique, and the view is absolutely beautiful. We come from a family of restaurant owners and feel it should not be up to the customer to find their own seating. So be careful when you go, if and...More

The fish tacos were delicious. Service was a bit slow but everyone said it was good. Chowder was enough for a meal.

Our condo is located right next door to the North Turn. We often had an evening cocktail and listened to the bands that played nightly. Our favorite quick meal was a cup of the best clam Chowder in Florida as a starter. We usually split...More
