Welcome to the Turtle
Slow, Fresh Food
A local gem and Texas foodie destination since 2004, The Turtle Restaurant is situated in the town of Brownwood, Texas, owned by multi-faceted Mary Stanley and architect David Stanley. The first year (2010) the bar was opened, our wine list received an award of distinction from Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Since 2017 the Turtle Enoteca has received two stars from the World’s Best Wine Lists sponsored by the British quarterly World of Fine Wine. This year, 2022, we were gobsmacked when we won their global award for Best Value Wine List (in the world!!!) Honestly, that's our goal to curate delicious under valued wines for your drinking pleasure.
The Turtle Gelateria was a finalist in the North American Stage of the Gelato World Tour and a participant in the finals in Rimini, Italy, in 2014; and in 2018, Mary’s original flavor, Hill Country Lemon Lavender, won a silver medal at Gelato Festival, Dallas.
