We ate lunch outside. The food and service was good. Our waitress did a great job of making sure our needs was met. It was not very busy when we where there, and was able to sit and talk.

I like this place, great choice of food and drinks. However, they do not know how to make a Bloody Mary. The put it in a small glass and the mix is terrible. Everyone knows to make them in large glasses and the mix is very important plus the condiments.

Maybe it was because it was a Saturday night, or maybe this is the best that PSL has to offer and it's just not good, but we won't be going back to the Thirsty Turtle. The service was terrible, both because it was really slow (30 min to get to order) and because it was beyond the capabilities of our... More

Went with my wife to have a few beers and some shrimp appetizers. $40 later we left pretty much unsatisfied. Maybe we should have had something else.

We have been long time fans of the conch fritters (maybe the best in Florida) and Wings with celery and blue cheese sauce. Fried Oysters (when they have them) another favorite. For Wings, seafood and fish platters at reasonable prices, hard to beat Thirsty Turtle, Plenty of on site parking. Service is friendly and attentive. Full bar service and many... More

The wings are always excellent, peel and eat shrimp are equally as tasty. The fried shrimp and scallops are delicious. Great local atmosphere. Server was very nice and attentive!

Best wings and fries in Port St Lucie. Crispy, fresh, tossed just right, with a side of steak fries and you have a great meal. Live music, good hand out, even try the loaded nachos great for sharing with a crowd. Kid friendly too.
