Waterfront Naples fine-dining spot makes Southern Living ‘most legendary’ restaurants list

Dave Osborn | Naples Daily News

A Naples restaurant left heavily damaged from Hurricane Ian in 2022 has written its own comeback story, reopening earlier this year.

Now the regional lifestyle magazine Southern Living has named the popular and resilient waterfront Turtle Club to its list of “most legendary” restaurants in Florida.

What did Southern Living say about Florida restaurants?

Southern Living earlier this month named “Florida’s 17 Most Legendary Restaurants.”

“It’s no secret that Florida restaurants are good at keeping their doors open,” the article said.

“The Sunshine State has seen countless hurricanes, watched rockets soar into space from its shores, and served coffee through the Cuban missile crisis. Through it all, Florida restaurants continue to survive and thrive, keeping residents and visitors satiated and coming back for more.”

And the only Southwest Florida one to make the list was the Turtle Club, 9225 Gulf Shore Drive.

‘Dine with your toes in sugar-like sand’
The Southern Living story raved about how, despite a powerful blow from the Category 4 Ian, Turtle Club had a “slow and careful comeback.”
