Good Location For A Relaxing Lunch

This spot is a nice little place to get a snack on the water. The sandwiches are good and the service is alright. $11-$15 for a sandwich seems a bit high, but food here is not cheap anywhere.

We had lunch at Turtle's after horseback riding during a recent trip to St. Croix. They certainly have earned their reputation for having the best deli sandwiches on the island. Awesome food, beautiful setting, and friendly service. I would highly recommend.

Small sandwich shop with BIG roar! Cute little place right on the water offering great views. Offering many varieties of fresh baked bread to choose from this deli is a MUST! So packed full of meats, cheeses and toppings they are for sure super-sized. So much flavor and flare this place will for sure turn any non sandwich lover INTO... More

The sandwiches were great! The bread was just okay. My small salad was ok. Please note this is unairconditioned, and they only take cash.

Visited Turtle's Deli based on a recommendation, the actual deli is not too appealing, it is old, dark and has a flock of loose chickens running around the place. The sandwiches are a bit pricey, but after we ordered I understood why. The bread is fresh baked, rye, marble or hero. The sandwiches are enormous, two people can share one.... More

The best sandwiches you'll have on island. Period. I can't say anything more. You just need to try these before you leave and you won't be sorry!

Great deli short walk from the pier. Large portions. Beachside dining. Highly recommended. Grab a chair on the beach and a cold drink while you wait for your handmade sandwich. They do not scrimp. Glad my wife and I shared a sandwich since portions are plentiful.

We stopped here after visiting the beer drinking pigs. Wasn't our first choice we were going to get burgers at the Domino Club but they were all out. Worked out to our advantage. Big sandwiches that were out of this world! I would highly recommend this place!! Quite yummy!

We had several hours to kill between the noon checkout and our 4:30 flight home. We stayed in Christiansted so didn't see much of frederiksted. We stopped first at the botanical gardens and then asked the woman there where we should grab lunch. She recommended this place, and boy was she right! Super friendly husband and wife owners, fresh baked... More
