We tried this place on a recent day trip to check out the area. It was recommended by a local real estate agent. It's a small place, with the ocean directly across the street. The staff were super friendly with great service. The food was...very good. We ended up buying property in the area and this will certainly be someplace we will frequent.More

Old, little place across from the ocean. The ice tea was instant and just awful. I ordered the Italian Caprese and my husband ordered the jumbo Sea Scallops. The presentation was nice, but the taste for both dishes was disappointing. Did not check back for...refills.More

This is a small restaurant just outside of 'downtown' Flagler Beach. The food is fantastic and the service even better. We made the mistake of arriving without a reservation (we had a party of 7) and decided instead of waiting an hour to be seated,...we made a reservation for the following night. They were really busy, but seated us as soon as we arrived. Patrick was our server and he was wonderful! He seemed to be taking care of several tables while handling other issues and deliveries, but he was always smiling and right there when we needed him. Never had service this good anywhere! The food is fantastic! There was a red snapper special that was over the top; the coconut shrimp and fried shrimp are HUGE and delicious! There desserts are homemade--the key lime pie was excellent and creme brulee was outstanding! We had a wonderful dinner and will definitely be back when in the area.More

Took our grandson here and he commented that they had the best chicken fingers ever! I had a mahi-mahi sandwich blackened and it was amazing. Food and service were both fantastic. Nice little place across from the beach

It was nice day, so we sat outside for the view. I had the mahi tacos, and they very good. Cute place, fun atmosphere, great place for a decent lunch.

Considering the ratings, we were expecting much more than what we experienced. The waitress was very businesslike and although she did check on our status, seemed to rush things. My wife's crab soup was literally inedible and somewhat deceiving on the name. It appeared to...be canned vegitable soup with a little bit of crab thrown in - which the waitress confirmed. The waitress did accomodate us by removing it from the bill. My burger was overcooked and, although generously garnished was flat and tasteless. The location beside A1A had an excellent view. My wife's crabcake sandwich was good and on par with those of most places we've dined - as were my onion rings. Overall portion size was good but quality was lacking for the price.More

We stopped here as it was dog friendly and were pleasantly surprised. Had the fish and chips and they were really good. Staff were very friendly.

Stopped here because it appeared full, Trip Advisor gave it a good review and our intended destination was closed. What a disappointment! My fried shrimp was so heavily breaded and must have fallen off a Sysco truck. The Souper Grouper was anything but - rubbery...and too peppery. Epic fail. Don’t go here!More

We found this little shack a couple of months ago and have visited three times now. We usually go after lunchtime and before dinner crowd so we get right in and served quickly. The portions received are so generous and the grouper sandwich is the...best I’ve had! The sweet potato fries are delicious as well! AND The view of the ocean while you eat never gets old!!! I highly recommend checking out The Turtle Shack Cafe!!More

This place was just right after a day of golf. The grouper was very good, our server was attentive and the atmosphere was casual. Just what we were looking for.

Our most recent visit the repairs to both building and patio were delayed by persistent rainy weather. However, there is seating on the patio. Two four (or maybe more if small) seat tables are available. Two bar height... More
