The Turtle Club

The Turtle Club

Nestled on the grounds of the Vanderbilt Beach Resort and founded in 1998, The Turtle Club is the perfect place to unplug and spend time with those most important to you. Providing elegant beachside dining for lunch or dinner, The Turtle Club is known for its delicious chilled seafood – including ceviche and Alaskan king crab – as well as its coastal-inspired salads, steak dinners and daily catch.

The 7 Best Restaurants in Naples - The Bay House

The Bay House Restaurant

The Bay House Restaurant
799 Walkerbilt Road

From the formal dining area overlooking the Cocohatchee River to the casual outdoor seating where you can enjoy sitting around a fire pit, The Bay House Restaurant is also home to The Claw Bar (a seafood raw bar) and The Tavern, a casual area featuring live musical performances. The menu includes unbelievable chilled and hot seafood dishes, fabulous burgers (we recommend The Butcher’s Tavern Burger – you can’t go wrong), jerk-marinated swordfish and pan-seared salmon, and so much more.

Campiello Ristorante & Bar

Campiello Ristorante & Bar
1177 3rd Street South

Campiello Ristorante & Bar is where food, family and friends blend seamlessly into a singular fine dining experience. Featuring a rustic-contemporary Italian menu (including the “Tour di Italia,” a rotating menu that highlights regional Italian cooking), Campiello Ristorante & Bar was named one of the ten best restaurants by USA Today. With an exceptionally well-rounded wine menu, as well as lunch, early dining and dinner menus that include meats grilled over open flame, wood-fire pizza and house-made pastas, Campiello Ristorante & Bar may just become your next favorite restaurant.

The 7 Best Restaurants in Naples - The Dock

The Dock at Crayton Cove

The Dock at Crayton Cove
845 12th Avenue South

The Dock at Crayton Cove is casual, laid-back and fun – and it’s home to one of Naples’ most popular dishes: The Great Dock Burger. You can also enjoy a wide selection of grilled and blackened seafood, perfectly grilled seafood (such as key lime black grouper or pineapple Chilean sea bass), roasted quinoa and so much more – all while basking in the authentic charm of one of Naples’ original waterfront restaurants. The Dock at Crayton Cove has been delighting guests since 1976, and it’s one of our local favorites.

Sails Restaurant

Sails Restaurant
301 5th Avenue South

Sails Restaurant, an upscale fusion of Italian, Greek and French cuisine, is the perfect place when you’re looking for handmade pastas, incredibly fresh seafood towers and an expertly curated wine list in a beautifully designed environment. The open kitchen concept adds to the restaurant’s ambiance, and the service is always impeccable. Sails Restaurant’s raw bar and dinner menu are unparalleled in quality; you can handpick each course of your meal to create the ideal experience.

Hob Nob Kitchen & Bar

Hob Nob Kitchen & Bar
720 5th Avenue South

Hob Nob Kitchen & Bar is the ideal place for modern, all-American cuisine. From “sweet heat” squid to rotisserie chicken, two-way duck and steak and fries, you’ll find your next favorite dish here. Beef and fish are brought in fresh each day (and even filleted on-site), and in-house chefs come up with a daily pasta creation. We’d be remiss if we left out their delectable desserts, too; try the key lime crème brulée, the flourless chocolate torte or the housemade ice cream.


2110 Tamiami Trail North

Dorona, one of Naples’ premier steakhouses, opened in 2018 and offers only the finest custom cuts of beef from sustainable farms. The same couple owns a handful of other Naples restaurants, as well (including Sea Salt, Barbatella and Grappino – all worth visiting for fabulous food). The environment is relaxed and expertly designed in a seamless blend of comfort and style, while the carefully crafted menu offers aged beef, pastas, sandwiches, seafood and more.
