The Greene Turtle Sports Bar and Grille, a Maryland-based sports bar and grille franchise, has been a Maryland tradition since opening in Ocean City in 1976. Equal parts sports bar and casual restaurant, The Greene Turtle combines the best of both into a different kind of neighborhood gathering place, where friends and family can gather to grab a bite, watch the game, or just enjoy a beer together in a lively atmosphere. It's a sports fans dream. With TVs everywhere - including flat screens in every booth - there's not a bad seat in the house. At any moment, cheers may erupt or friendly banter between tables. Everyone gets involved, even the super-sociable Turtle staff.
