Kevin "Turtle" Krople opened the Dwight location in April of 1985. He purchased the single store front bar that was known as Art's Bird Store. He added on and expanded the location several times to make it the Turtle's known in Dwight.. Our House dressing was created at the Dwight restaurant. The Morris location was opened in September of 1997. Turtle decided to part ways with the Dwight location in 2014 giving him ample time to remodel and design the newest addition in Morris.. Lady Lux and our Carlson room were opened in 2015.
