The outdoor setting is always beautiful. We tried different dishes this time and liked them. One of us had lobster roll and onion rings, which are consistently delicious, as well as your warm homemade chocolate chip cookie with toast and jam ice cream, which gotta say, made me happy. Service this time was slow. The first impression you get when you go to a restaurant is from the hostess, so I must add that the hostess was blah. But in general, I love The Turn House for its creative menu, the lovely job you've done with the interior and the beautiful views.

The food is inventive and delicious. Even the kids menu was impressive, and our two-year-old daughter loved the "healthy plate" (minus the sharp cheese, of course). The service was mediocre. Items were left out of dishes; the bill was calculated incorrectly; and we didn't receive the proper amount of attention considering that few other guests were in the restaurant. The next time we visit we will choose the patio, as the dining room is stuffy. A helpful tip for Tuesdays: arrive early! Only six oysters were left when we attempted to take advantage of the "Buck a Shuck" promotion.

The drinks and ambiance are awesome! Highly recommend sitting in the outside area, but bringing bug spray. Our server was great, very funny and polite.

We loved the crispy brussels sprouts, tuna poke tacos and the peel & eat shrimp. The fried green tomatoes were not the best (too much breading & hard tomato).

Overall, definitely would come back again.

Great service; however, my sandwich (grilled cheese with prosciutto was great. The toast was very hard and difficult to chew. My daughter and her boyfriend enjoyed their meals, i.e. avocado and crab toast, Reuben sandwich, and brussel sprouts (too hard for me...I like mine softer.

Crab cakes were over cooked on the outside(crispy) and under cooked with shreds(very little) of actual crab meat. For the price of $31 -I would suggest this meal.
The atmosphere looking out to the greens of the course- OUTSTANDING.

A good place to grab a drink and peaceful conversation at best. And of course- GOLF.
