Take out or eat on the beach. The biggest deli sandwiches anywhere. The Reuben was great. Right on the beach in downtown Fredricksted.

Turtles Deli sits at one end of Strand street in Fredriksted, right on the Caribbean. A lot of places say "on the water", they are...if you are there on a day with a little rough water, sit back a bit from the edge of the patio...or your lunch could end up in Davey Jones locker. Their standard menu seemed to... More

I have to start with I have never been a fan of chicken salad. The military ladies there said it was one of the best and even if I didn't like it I would love this one. She was so right!! it was a little messy to ask for extra napkins then use their bathroom to wash your face. The... More

We stopped here for a quick lunch on our way to the airport. We were pleasantly surprised -- the sandwiches were massive and SO delicious! The view of the water was lovely and it was cool and breezy on the patio. We also loved the cat who greeted us at our table. Fantastic (and hearty) lunch!

Homemade bread and a ten pound (slightly overstated) sandwich in this open air spot. Tons of locals and one of the best bites around. Not to be missed!

The location of the deli is kind of different, but the food is really delicious. I would caution you to order one sandwich for 2 people or be ready to bring home a take home box. Great value.

Every time I go to St. Croix on vacation I make sure to go to Turtles. The sandwiches are huge and delicious. The home baked, thick sliced bread is great! Everything is made to order. They have a great variety of sandwiches and salads. Stop by, grab a drink while you wait and enjoy the Caribbean Sea views - it... More
