The Turtle Club was founded in 1998 by Mike Moore and Peter Tierney on the grounds of the Vanderbilt Beach Resort, which was the very first hotel established on Vanderbilt Beach in 1951. It has been operated by the Moore family since 1968. Mick Moore joined the Turtle Club in 2004, and over the past twenty years, The Turtle Club has come to represent perhaps the finest fusion of Olde Florida and New Florida in Naples – combining a relaxed casual Olde Florida beach environment with sophisticated modern cuisine and outstanding gracious hospitality.
We share a very simple philosophy with a strong emphasis on hospitality and authenticity. We believe in extending gracious hospitality to all of our guests and employees. In a fast-paced and frenetic world, we are focused on providing a place where our guests can relax, unplug, unwind and rejuvenate themselves as they spend time with their loved ones and friends. We recognize that true hospitality is a step above excellent service and we strive to combine high quality food and wine with service marked by courtesy, kindness, friendliness, and authenticity — all in a simple and beautiful beach side setting.
