LOVE IT

Last meal before we left. Either have a big appetite or be prepared to share. I love the peppered Turkey. I don't even read the menu any more. My sister in law had the Italian and it was enormous. What a value. The owners are a wonderful couple. Be sure to strike up a conversation with time... read more

This place has some of the best sandwiches in the world! And you get to eat them outside under shade right on the edge of the caribe. I would highly recommend it!

Order the half and half - sandwich and salad - it's a very satisfying lunch. My husband ordered the Italian Hero and it was HUGE . . . the location right on the beach is nice and relaxing. Great place for lunch.

Whether you are on a cruise ship just in for the day, on vacation, or a local, Turtle's is a must do. Budget a little extra time as, depending on how busy, it could be 15 or so minutes before you get your sandwich. It is, however, well worth the wait. All sandwiches are huge and most can easily be...

These guys make a great sandwich. Homemade bread fresh and sliced meats. If you go bring an appetite. My wife and I have been traveling to St Croix since 1987. we've been making at least one stop here for sandwiches since the shop opened. On most trips we swing by on the way to the airport and get to go... More

The sandwiches here are great and filling. We had one of the daily specials which was a club sandwich with turkey, ham, and double bacon. This sandwich was about 5 inches high with so much meat we could only eat half. No problem though because the friendly owners gladly wrapped our leftovers to take with us. The only bad thing...

This was a nice little deli right on the beach in Frederiksted. The sandwiches are HUGE and they have unique combinations of sandwiches and they taste great. We visited them twice; it was the last place we grabbed a sandwich on our way to the airport our last day on the island. You won't be disappointed in this one. Definitely... More

Huge sandwich with great flavor. Had to visit more than once. First trip had the club on roasted garlic bread. Sandwich was so big I couldn't get it in my mouth. Second trip, had the Spicy Trouble.....buffalo chicken, chorizo, and bacon. This sandwich had so much flavor, you can't even describe it. Sit in one of the ocean side tables,... More
