When Peter Tierney and Michael Moore opened the Turtle Club in 1999 on the grounds of the Vanderbilt Beach Resort, they completely changed the landscape of waterfront dining in Naples. 

Focusing on fresh seafood and fine steaks and chops served in a spectacular beachfront setting, the restaurant quickly became a favorite “secret spot” for local Neapolitans.  No longer did exclusive national hotels or private clubs dominate fine waterfront dining.  

The secret has been out for some time now, and the restaurant has consistently been voted the area’s top restaurant for waterfront dining.  With a focus on casually elegant fine dining, hospitable and caring staff, outstanding food and wine, and excellent value, the Turtle Club continues to win rave reviews from both loyal locals and out-of-state newcomers.
