They are known for their burgers. I had the filet sandwich which was really sirlon per server but good. Their cob salad was good. The wasabi tuna sandwich was different but good. Their spaghetti and meatballs were good. The meatballs are from N Y. We had a good lunch with 9 people and no one had any complaints.

My family and I had dinner here tonight and were pleasantly surprised! We hadn't heard of this place, but the reviews were good and we liked what we saw if the menu online. When we arrived, we were greeted and seated immediately. The menu had something for all of our family which isn't always the case when you have kids... More

I used to love to eat this place because of the food and the wonderful experience. It all changed when I went in there one day with a lot of my friends that I have convinced to come to the restaurant. I had told them how wonderful the restaurant is and how it is a must visit. Well needless to... More

When you go to restaurants that are 'unknown' to you pre-qualifying is natural. It appears to be a 'dive kind of place' from driving by. The name isn't something that screams food so it's easy to pass. Reading reviews can never tell you a whole story because we are too subjective to get a broad experience. My wife and I... More

I'm usually here a couple times a month. The food is always good, they have a decent beverage selection and even an apple cider. The wait staff is always friendly.

We have eaten here many times over the year. It's a great local hangout spot and one we love to go to with friends. They have almost everything on the menu, offer great service, and it's all reasonably priced.

I have been bringing friends and family to the Turtle Shell for years. We enjoy the food and have had a very friendly relationship with the staff. There have been some disappointments (No more draft beer, no more karaoke, and changing the steak Caesar salad to sirloin), but the new burgers and good food have kept us coming back. Friday...

You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Maybe I was confused as to what sort of establishment this was. My husband and I wanted a nice quiet dinner. The dining room is not quiet or very inviting. The food was average at best. We ordered the chicken teriyaki and the NY strip. Service was ok. You... More

What a nice, casual place to hangout! The food is very good, prices are reasonable, and the service is friendly. There is a small patio out front with a TV so you can enjoy the game and a beer outside on a pretty day. It has a great neighborhood feel to it and we look forward to our next visit.
