Fat Turtle

The food was average, but the setting was beautiful. You overlook the beautiful Caribbean water. The food was fresh, but nothing out of the ordinary.

This restaurant is in Yacht Haven Grande which is the high end shopping mall on St Thomas. It has a very good location but I found the decor a bit run down - the tables and chairs need updating, a bit rusty. Prices are good. The burger is quite good and they have excellent fries.

I recently had the pleasure of eating at Fat Turtle in St Thomas. What a fun place. Presumably staffed with Angels with black-belts and Phd's in patience. I sat at the bar, along with about 56413213545641 other people because of a boating event that was being held . The view from the bar alone is worth the visit. Not only... More

This was our second visit to Fat Turtle. The atmosphere is "cool" particularly if you can be seated on the perimeter so that you can feed the fish down below. Both visits were at lunch time, so the place was not that crowded. We actually were able to seat ourselves, so naturally, we chose the best seat in the house... More

If you are looking for decent burgers/sandwiches/bar food/cold beverage, then Fat Turtle's will do. Really nothing special about the menu selections. Most of what is served can be found in a many places. Located in a shopping area on the water, the scenery is again decent but again nothing I would go out of my way for. Service was pleasant.

good place on the water overlooking the bay and cruise terminal. One of many places to get a good lunch out of the hustle and bustle of the city, You cant see this place from the road so its easy to miss if your driving. but once you park in the YHG parking lot its a short walk. If your... More
