Have been to turtles many times. But this was the best. Best prices had filet Pittsburgh style cooked to perfection with 2sides and salad for 16.99. Unbelievable they have 1986 prices all day long. Will be going back

I always enjoy eating at Turtles on little Sarasota Bay. Nice atmosphere and good specials. The food is always good. You can eat outside on the deck on the water or inside.
