During our last visit to St Thomas we had lunch at the Fat Turtle. The food was great, I had a great chicken wrap and my wife and fish tacos. Great food for a decent price. If you down a Haven Sight and want good food for a good price, we say Fat Turtle...

We ate here 2 times while staying on St. Thomas for the week. It was just about the only thing open near our hotel that wasn't $30+ per plate. We had burgers the first time and just appetizers and drinks the second time. Both of which were good, but seemed just like "bar food" I guess you would say. Nothing... More

Food was horrible. The menu sucked. I ate there a while back and the food was awesome. The menu used to be great with whole snapper and a local sauce. They also had a BBQ chicken sandwich. Whoever did this menu doesn't know what they're doing. They had a horrible smothered chicken that's not a smothered chicken. I then asked... More

St. Thomas itself is a touristy place catering to the ultra rich with their yachts or cruise ship passengers. The Fat Turtle has a great view right next to the cruise ship dock. One day the drinks were pretty good but I thought a little weak the second day. However, as we found throughout most of the islands, they barely... More

We ended up there because most everything else was closed. The food was good, service a bit slow, but not terrible. As pretty & serene as the view is from there, it still lacks ambiance when the table of folks next to you are loud & obnoxious. I was so happy when they finally left.

Good lunch location near Havenside pier where cruise ships dock. Good drinks and casual, picturesque restaurant/bar within easy walking distance from the ship. Located in upscale mall at one of the marinas. Reasonable prices. Food was above average.

Our family stopped in while on a cruise. Great shopping and views of the harbor from this location. The Mahi sandwich comes with roasted plantains which are a great complement to the spicy mayo. I also had a mango daiquiri. The seating area is all open air with tons of shade.
