We went during happy hour. The service was very fast. We had our meal and drinks in less than an hour. There are TV's all around so this is great for those who love sports. We went early so the noise level had not gotten that bad. If you go later be prepared for the noise level to amp up.... More

Thought the crab cakes were excellent but don't know that I'd order anything else here as the meals I saw did;not look particularly appetizing. My wife ordered the salmon and she said it was fine but somewhat bland as there was very little seasoning, if any. Stick with the crab cakes and you can't go wrong.

This Green Turtle is like all of the others in the area. Loud, average customer service and average food. The menu is massive and they nothing stands out. Five years ago I could have suggested two or three items on the menu, but now it's all the same. If you are looking for a place to watch a game, drink... More

Good food and fast service. Friendly servers. Lots of tv's and different sports playing. There is a roomy bar or table seating. A few games for the kids too. Affordably priced.

Stopped in just to have a small bite after a long working day the drinks were good the meal was a little better than average the service was a little better than average. It is not an exotic restaurant there's nothing super special on the menu. They did run out of Tito's vodka which was really a crying shame. Other... More

Food is good, perfect venue if you are a mad sports person but if you want to have a conversation during your meal you better get a table outside if the weather allows it

Great service and very good food. They were updating the dining room but it did not affect us. Big Burgers and other pub food. All of us really enjoyed it. A little bit costly, but the fresh food and service made it worth it.

We went here to get something to eat & it was @9pm or maybe a little later. Not too crowded, we did not have to wait to be seated. This is a sports bar, so expect some noise. It was not too loud when we went. We started with drinks (some fun drinks on this menu!) and crab cake sliders.... More

This location gets plenty of traffic. Everything you'd expect of the Greene Turtle is there... good food, cold beer, lots of sports on the TV, and a very friendly staff. My boss likes to have work lunches here and even with 15+ people we've never had an issue getting seated or getting our orders promptly. The 5 o'clock crowd at... More
