Went to Turtle's Deli THREE times for lunch in our 9 day stay. Outstanding sandwiches and huge portions. If you go @ noon, you may have a bit of a wait, but it is well orth it.

Turtle's Deli has awesome and HUGE sandwiches. The club sandwich was about 4 inches thick and presented a challenge for eating it. Had a couple different sandwiches and they were all awesome. Be aware they are cash only, no plastic.

During my stay on St. Croix I went to "Turtle Deli" multiple times and it never disappointed. The sandwiches are simply SUPERB (and huge). They bake their own breads and they taste incredible. I had the "Spicy Trouble" sandwich and I highly recommend it. And then there is the "view" ......right on the water, which makes it a very relaxing... More

Hard to write a review on the quality of food when you can't get any. Came for a late lunch and was told that we would have a 45 minute to an hour wait. There were about 10 people there and some had already finished there meal. So my guess is that a large order to go was the priority... More

We stopped in here twice during our week visit to St. Croix. We didn't want anything heavy for dinner so we ordered a sandwich and chef salad to go. We shared them and still had some left over for the next day. The chef salad had a mix of great veggies, and your choice of meats and cheese. Their bread... More

Note: This restaurant only accepts cash. This is easily the best deli in Frederiksted, if not the whole island. The sandwich portions are huge and they use good, quality ingredients. I highly recommend grabbing the sandwiches there or taking them to go.
