Dining - The Vanderbilt Beach ResortDine With Your Feet in the Sand

I have been visiting the Vanderbilt for the last 10 years. As soon as you enter the hotel, you are always greeted with a smile. I was very much impressed, it’s like heaven. The Turtleclub restaurant is 5-star and everyone from the bartenders to waitress/waiters are wonderful. Sitting outside by candle light, eating a fabulous dinner and watching the sunset...it does not get any better than that.

The best beachfront restaurant in Naples -- the Turtle Club Restaurant -- is located right on the grounds of the hotel, and it is open for lunch and dinner. Take a break from the sun to enjoy a refreshing salad and crisp glass of wine for lunch under the shade of our umbrellas.  Dine under the stars with your feet in the sand for dinner while sampling the best seafood that the Gulf of Mexico has to offer.  Or sip a tropical cocktail after a relaxing day on the beach.  As the sun sets to the muted applause of our guests and local beachgoers, you then can turn to the serious business of sampling our extensive wine list and the culinary delights that our expert staff create each evening -- fresh seafood and the best steaks, poultry and chops available.  Dining at the Turtle Club is a truly unique Florida experience, where the flavors of expertly prepared dishes and the ambiance of our seaside setting combine to create unforgettable memories.  Although many want to keep the restaurant a "secret spot," the word has leaked out. The Turtle Club already has won many awards and is well known as a jewel of the Naples dining scene.

While at the resort, we will be happy to help you with Turtle Club reservations during the times when they are scarce and in demand.  Once you finish dining, take a romantic stroll on the beach, or just walk a few steps to the comfort of your room for a final glass of wine on your outside porch as you listen to the sounds of the surf.  We are warning you, once you have eaten at the Turtle Club you may never be satisfied with any other beachfront dining again!
