Typically a great place to meet and eat. I've tried them in other locations and out-of-state and always found it a memorable experience.

Bad location to put such a rowdy and noisy crowd of people.....shopping will be difficult with all the noise from the Green Turtle and the race cars at the speedway roaring in the "background"....seems that someone did not think this one out too much and therefore they removed/ cut all the buffer trees down and now the sound from the raceway travels like lightning throughout the area....Panera customers not so happy about this one.......

Really???? Where else would you propose they put these establishments. I guess the rowdy crowd that will be coming from the movies will be too much too... Hmmm....Glass half full ....Glass half full, dude. SMH

Stopped at the Turtle for lunch on Sunday, I’m hoping to see this place succeed but my first experience was awful. I’ll be sticking to the Turtle at the mall. When I arrived I love the setup with all the TVs, no matter where I sit, I was going to be able to watch the game..but it went downhill quickly after that. Our waitress was hardly ever seen due to management giving her tables in every section of the restaurant. My food came out missing a side, I mentioned it to the girl who brought it out and she just rolled her eyes at me. I never did see the side. I saw one server delivering meals to a table and the customers actually had to take the food off the tray themselves. This place has so much potential, but management needs to work out the kinks real quick. I’m sure other customers had a great experience, but my first one was awful.

I had no issues with the crowd at the Turtle…I’m expecting it to be loud since it’s a restaurant/sports bar. The one thing that will be awful is parking.

Development=fewer tress and natural buffers. We got what we deserve. From the looks of things it appears as if there will be no shortage of DUIs in the future. Never did like Panera Bread. The race track can now serve as a reminder of what 'prgress' and the drive for $$$$ does to the environment. Think about the impact this has on all the houses there. What happended to the impact studies that were supposed to be done prior to permits being granted? We had diner at the Italian Market in the old shopping center, sat outside as we usually do, and listend to the race cars - never heard them before. THANK YOU PROGRESS. Keet the racetrack and hang the developers. Moving here appears to be less and less of a good idea.

I love how people from a sprawling area like Crofton seem to think that the land west of route 3 is there for their buffer etc. perhaps you should be more concerned abut the lack of trees on YOUR side of route 3

Mine was not so great either on Saturday. Wrong orders, wrong happy hour pricing quotes, long waits for waiter and food. I love Greene Turtle but I will not head over for a while to give them time to work the kinks out.
