I could not believe my eyes! My husband I were there over the New Years weekend and we decided to stop in for a drink. We also ordered some wings. We sat at a tall round table by the bar and we could see directly into the kitchen. We ordered bloody marys - they were good and some wings -... More

Now I understand it was Thanksgiving day, but the bartender, Sean (something like that) kept telling us at the bar we were lucky because he decided to work. Hon I've been bartending since 1986 holiday work is PART OF THE JOB! Stop whining and suck it up or you shouldn't have come in! Getting the attention was difficult because I... More

We had gone here before the Christmas Parade as they offered free funnel cake fries and hot cocoa for the kids. It was her cramped in there. My son kept on bumping against a picture that was very loosely nailed to the wall. The server has a personality of a cardboard box..and you could tell she was just there to... More

Plenty of TVs, choices of food, selections of beer. Good service. Place is bigger than it looks, two floors. Want to watch a game with a half dozen people, they got seats and service for you. Went there with wife, kids, grand kids on a Sunday afternoon. Got beers, pizza, sandwiches, kids meals and we watched a half of the... More

We ate here while on vacation. It was packed. After waiting a long time, we were seated in a noisy dining room. Food was just average. I probably would not return.

Do not like elderly customers. My husband and I wanted to try this Green Turtle when we visited Ocean City. We usually go to the Green Turtle in West Ocean City and always have excellent service. We walked into the one on Coastal Highway and did not get a very friendly welcome. We wanted to sit in the bar area... More

This is a sports bar with damn good food and superior service. The menu is great -- with lots to choose from. This place won't break the bank and you should take advantage of the many drink specials. My wife and I are in our late 50's and went to a couple of "fine dining" restaurants and found this place... More

I'll admit it up front, I love this place. This was the first tavern my wife and I frequented during our first trip to Ocean City, and we keep coming back during our visits and especially during football season. Unlike newer more modern sports bars, the Greene Turtle doesn't have cavernous ceilings and the largest state of the art large... More

Been coming to the Turtle for almost 30 years. While the service is inconsistent, it still is usually a fun place. Food is decent for a sports bar, and they sell beer in pitchers if you are looking for that. It's not the home run it was in it's heyday, but it's still the Original Turtle...
