Turtles Restaurant on Little Sarasota Bay in Sarasota, FL has been around since 1986. Our general manager Alex Ortega, adores the place so much, he’s worked his way up our culinary ladder from his first job as a dishwasher at age 15, and has reeled in his three brothers: Julian, Manual, and Agapito to cook up tasty meals for hundreds of beachgoers and boaters in the Siesta Key region.
Our restaurant sits at ICW Marker 48, allowing boats and kayaks to pull up to the Turtle Beach Marina. Diners experience a spectacular view of the Bay and water anywhere in and outside our restaurant. We are also within close proximity to Siesta Key’s Turtle Beach. If you “time” your happy hour (3 p.m. – 5 p.m. daily) or dinner just right, you can take a short walk over to the beach on the gulf side of Siesta Key and watch an awe-inspiring sunset, before or after dinner.
It is our goal to combine the charm of our romantic waterfront setting with only the freshest seafood and fine cuisine at reasonable prices.
An Even Bigger Catch!
We serve an extensive menu featuring all types of meals, from fresh seafood to big and hearty prime ribs. Our nightly specials also include grouper specialties, soft shell crabs, superb Mahi Mahi, filet mignon, and more.
Please Note: We do not take any reservations except for holidays. If you have a party of 15 or more, you may call ahead when you are on your way.
