I have spent a great deal of time and money in Yacht Haven Grande. My husband and I had dinner the other night and when we left, I did not feel well. Both my husband and I drove there separately after work, so he drove home and I left my car there. It is very slow right now in St.... More

The view is amazing! I hardly noticed the service lag because I was enjoying that aspect so much and even though I did notice... More

Happened upon the Fat Turtle - the Calamari was soooo good. Very different with the mango sauce. Burgers are great too. Good view of the harbor. Little pricey, but everything is in STT since Charlie Amalie is a resort town. Close to the cruise ships.

Had a pasta dish for $30 that was average, service was slow and we left to watch football game elsewhere because we couldn't get drinks.

We stopped here for lunch and to kill some time before going out on the turtle cove excursion with Captain Mike on the Fury and loved everything about this small, comfy place.
