Told this is the original. I hope GT has no connection anymore because it is unfriendly, run down and dirty. GT should be ashamed. Hard to get service. Tables sticky. Game room a complete joke. Looks like they stopped caring. Will stick with mt GT in Crofton. Avoid this one. Go somewhere cleaner.

We arrived for a quick Happy Hour snack and beer and actually skipped dinner. This is a bar in a resort area. The bar is small with a few tables to one side and in the bar area. Take it for what it is and you see how cool this place really is! It reminds me of a local bar... More

My husband and I went in for dinner and a few drinks. We were immediately seated and our initial drinks order and food order were taken. From there it went completely downhill. Our entrees came out before our appetizer. We received no silverware and had to pick at our crap fries. Our waitress was non existent after taking our order.... More

If you love the Green Turtle franchise this is a must stop. It's the original Turtle. The layout is completely different. I've been going here for 20 years. The food is basically your typical Turtle food but the vibe is much better than your typical Turtle.

I always feel comfortable in this place. To me,it's more of a bar than a restaurant. But the food is pretty good. We visited twice last week for happy hour. Steamed oysters and sliders. Nothing to rave about, but the value was good. The bar help is very friendly and there's always sports on the tube.

Food was good but they sat us in the bar (with our kindergarten age son) and a group of guys was super loud and cursing at the games on tv literally next to our table. There was an entire section we could've sat in that wasn't next to guys betting on a game. Service was nice also.

I go here every year with the family just before we depart OC. It has always been fantastic food, but not this time. I believe the owner was eating with a family this day also as he was getting all of the attention. Don't get me wrong, our server was good! I started with a bowl of MD crab soup.... More

Was looking for a good spot for the Caps playoff game and pub food. Good happy hour deals- half off apps and $2.50 domestic beers. Featured the Caps game on the overhead speakers and most televisions so it was perfect for us. It was busy and only one server on the bottom floor. He kept up and our drinks and... More

I was in Ocean City for an event that weekend and decided to meet a good friend for dinner. He suggested this place since I had my boys with me so I agreed.
