We frequent this place often. My wife and I are winter visitors. We love the atmosphere. They have some great employees. I will mention a few but several can be proud of their dedication to the establishment; Jamie and Dawn are two of the anchors that hold things together, they are fantastic! A few of the wait staff that do... More

We recently relocated to Havasu from Huntington Harbour, California and the first place we went for cocktails and food was the Turtle Grill. We met Lynn and instantly felt at home. She is personable, funny and gave us fantastic service including an intro to her famous bloody marys. We call Turtle Grill "Cheers" becuase it instantly became our favorite place... More

Just wow! We went for a nice Friday Night Dinner. Was seated....waited 10 mins., got water & placed our order. That was it....the end! No bread, salad, utensils. No waiter. After 45 mins. We asked to see the manager. No manager came. We left. You would think since you were spending $50 on dinner, you'd get some kind of service!... More

We were staying at the resort so this was close after a long day of travel. They had a special 3 course menu. Our experience started off rocky as we sat nearly 10 minutes before anyone even acknowledged our presence but after that smooth sailing. The food was really good!!! Not overly fancy but nice and good and the view... More

It was not an outdoor weather-wise eating day when we visited, but it looks like a prime venue right next to the water. We had lunch here, and it was good.

Right on the river off the beaten path. You can actually pull your boat up 25 ft from this establishment! Good food, great drinks and a friendly staff. My family of 5 teenagers and myself stayed at the hotel next door. We ate here 4 times during our 5 day stay! You will love it!
