“A sassy shack of Caribbean eats and cooking, Turtle Bay is a restaurant-bar at the tip of John Bright Street, wowing city patrons with buckets full of BBQ chow and rum-laced cocktails. Following suit with the other regional restaurant bars in its chain, Turtle Bay mimics the Caribbean culture the only way it knows how: with colour. From shack-inspired seating areas and white-washed wood to walls laced in an abundance and colour bound art pieces, Turtle Bay is a bright and breezy spot for dinner and drinks alike. While Birmingham has seemed somewhat defunct of affordable Caribbean cooking, Turtle Bay is ready and raring with a reggae themed rustle of exotic eats. From jerk laced meat and curried goat to street hawker inspired cutter dishes such as Jamaican Fried Bait, it's as authentic and colourful as many dishes could come. But what would a Caribbean restaurant bar be without the rum? Boasting a tropical selection of cocktails, you'll be able to lock your lips around liquid fare the likes of Koko Kolada's and Tobago Tea.”
