We were shopping in the city and decided to try this restaurant as we had never been before. We were seated quickly even though the place was busy. The atmosphere was great; it was quiet and we were able to have a conversation without tons of noise. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and had great recommendations....

Can't comment on the food. Arrived at restaurant and was sat. Was not given a menu, so got my own. No one came to table. So, after 15 min, we left and went across the parking lot where we received fabulous service. Will not return.

Turtle Jacks satisfies again! We had a delicious meal with excellent service this evening! Shelby was an excellent server and was attentive to all of our needs. She even asked if anyone at the table had food allergies, after we ordered our meals. (This was the first time we have ever been asked this, at any restaurant! We thought it... More

I was surprised by the varied choices offered. Lots of trendy choices like chicken, pasta, etc and almost hidden a sirloin steak.

After 13 and a half months my husband and I finally got a night off from Baby duties. We decided to change our usual family outting locations for somewhere new. We ordered the chicken Parm while the chicken was great they noodles were very bland making our meal simply an OK experience. Our server was Bronco and he was wonderful!... More

The lovely young girl who showed us to our table easily answered our questions and gave us the seats we asked for. Servers were wonderful and food was good. I had fish and chips and my daughter had one of the specialty sandwiches . Very well seasoned. Lighting for paint nite was good. A great evening

The slow service, was I invisible at the bar? It was empty, I should have picked up on that sign. It was clean. The loaded baked potato had liquified nacho cheese instead of cheddar. The steak was tough. Ordered med rare got near rare. The blue cheese dressing, couldn't tell. Now I know it's Canada and all but this American... More
