We always go to Fat Turtles when we visit St. Thomas! Lots of great shopping within walking distance. Leave the hubbies there with a drink while you walk to 1st class shopping. The good there is always delicious. My husband and I had nachos they were delicious!! Can't beat Fat Turtles!

My boss and I ate here for lunch. Nothing special. Servers were good and friendly. He gave us a list of must see places as well as history of the island. The food was okay. I had chicken. The food reminds me of Applebee's. Right on the water near shopping and the cruise ships.

Came here on January 2 for dinner. This is in a open concept shopping area with some of the usual shops you might expect to see in the US. It is on the water and the food was very good. They were busy when we first arrived so we had to wait a while to be served, but hey we... More

When we stopped for dinner there was a wait, but the staff did their best to accommodate us. The food is good, but on the high priced side...not the best value around. I had the Snapper entre...very tasty.

Great spot for strong, affordable drinks and endless dancing. There is a DJ that starts at 10pm. Did not try the food-but it looked good. The environment is casual and perfect for big groups.

Wanted to grab a quick drink while waiting to board the Carnival cruise ship. Walk right up to the bar and start enjoying within five minutes. Great view of the harbour. Watch the other cruise ships leave the dock! Nice atmosphere and drinks are half the price as on board.
