The Green Turtle believes in being a community hangout for all ages that serves great food & drinks in a fun, casual atmosphere. Wonderfully convenient to WISP and Resort activities. ”

“Garrett County's eclectic spot! Live music, crazy, interesting setting, craft brews and a simple, fun place to visit. Awesome Firefly Farm cheese and wine shop directly across the street. Located in town of Accident, MD (interesting story with the town hame - easy to Google), this is a fun & tasty destination! My wife and I have many times grabbed a specialty cheese cut to our size at the Firefly Farm! Great gift ideas there too! less than 5 min away! ”

“This is a great place to bring the kids, or if you feel like acting like a kid yourself. We brought our kids here many times! Smiley’s offers full service dining. Choose from their pizzas, wings, sandwiches, and more. Smiley’s also has a sports bar and an amusement facility that has a little bit of something for everyone: with arcades, bowling, go carts, mini golf, laser tag, and more. Skeet ball always catches my attention! ”
