Cool place for dinner.

We were staying at the marina and wanted to have dinner close by. We walked there. I ordered the salmon and my husband the ribs. The food was very good.

This restaurant is located in the harbor near the shopping district where cruise ships and million dollar yachts park. The service was a complete disappointment. We dined there twice because the kids liked the name of the restaurant. 1) We had to seat our selves. There was a reception podium but no-one standing at the podium to great or seat... More

We've visited Fat Turtle several times and were always disappointed. Yacht Haven Grande is so nice, it's surprising to have such a poor service experience, on top of lack-luster food and drinks.

We ate here on our first night on the island, which was a Friday. We got there around 6 and our service was just fine. "Fine" on the island is to get your food in about 30 minutes. We had eaten here previously on a different trip and remembered the pizza being pretty good. So we thought we would try... More

If you around downtown Charlotte Amalia and looking for something delicious, stop by the Fat Turtle for some incredible nachos. Being a native Texan, I can appreciate good nachos, these are top notch and I would dare to say the best on St Thomas. The other aspects of the visit were good, prompt service, strong drinks, and nice staff. Keep... More

Terrible service and dirty! The tables didn't look like they had ever been wiped off. Our drink order was wrong. We had to go to the bar and ask for replacements because our waitress only came back to bring us our cold food that had been sitting in the window for half an hour. Such a disappointment.

The food was delicious! We went back twice because the experience was so nice. A live band played soothing music and the singer was interactive with the guests. On both occasions, the owner was there to greet and meet the patrons and ensured your dining waa up to par. We will definitely visit again!

I had the jerk flavored wings which Chelsea recommended. Yummy! The calamari was delicious too. Thank you for good service and a friendly smile. Will go there for a cold drink and quick bite again.

Had a great time sharing drinks and appetizers. The pizzas and the "Where'd I park my $%^&*& boat" drink were the best.
