Thirsty Turtle Seagrill (Boca Raton, Juno Beach & Port St. Lucie)


       Thirsty Turtle Seagrill, 9908 Yamato Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33434 (561) 852-6244.

Thirsty Turtle Seagrill is a “sports-bar”…dark wood decor, sports memorabilia on the walls, flat screen tvs, pool table, live music (Wednesday-Sunday nights)…there are 3 locations, Boca Raton, Juno Beach and Port St. Lucie. Check the joint’s website at for menu/hours/pictures.

I recently gave the Boca Raton location a shot… The good news, although the menu features “seafood” there are enough appetizers, salads, sandwiches, burgers, wings and meat/chicken entrees  so no-body is going to starve. The bad news is, that after trying the cheeseburger, philly cheesesteak sandwich, wings, clams casino, fried shrimp, bbq ribs, french fries… the food is just passable.

You and I know both know, that most of these “ale house sports-bar” restaurants are not exactly bastions of  great-food. Most of these joints have just “ok” food (microwave-city), pleasant service,  reasonable prices, loads of tvs and are real casual.

 Going in…you know what you are “in for.” With that in mind, Thirsty Turtle is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.

    Hey Jeff,

    Your blog is Awesome! I just moved down here about 9 months ago from Brooklyn myself. Born and Raised in queens, I love it down here (probably cuz there are so many New Yorkers, seems like its a little more wild and crazy… oh and you can actually afford to eat and live and breath).

    Great Site! I just started my blog about 3 months ago,

    Will definitely keep an eye out for your suggestions! Thanks for the posts!

    This is not a good restaurant. The wings and fries were okay but that’s about it.
    The place is so bad that it doesn’t even give you fries with a burger, but instead gives you potato chips. Give me a break. That’s absurd. Don’t waste your time.

    Wife and ate lunch last Saturday at the Thirsty Turtle. We got there around 2pm and the restaurant was totally empty, not one other customer. Ordered two cheeseburgers and was surprised that fries didn’t come with the burgers but instead potato chips. Well, we got the burgers and ordered fries and found the both to be good. That’s all I can tell you about this joint, but I think that based on location alone this restaurant may have some serious problems.

    Barry ,I hope you are wrong ,we need anything we can get out here.East Boca has so many amazing eateries ,and we have really none out here.I have eaten there 3 or 4 times ,and have never been disappointed.The French fries really are excellent , and the Wings are above average ,in my opinion !!!! Not plain ole’ buffalo wings ,but a pleasantly sweet and garlic-y sauce !!!! the Ribs are also above the average sports bar ,and the seafood is on a higher plain, then any sportsbar I have been to. I disagree about the 6 months thing , I say the Sabra Grill ,goes down ,and the Turtle ,Lives !!! The yknow what they are doing ,as they have another turtle in Jupiter ,I think? .I say the Turtle will Float!!!!!!!!

    P.S. The Sabra Grill is in the same plaza as the Thirsty turtle,and I have never been there.It may be good ,but I don’t know if that will be enough.
