Took my family here tonight while happy hour in progress. Cheap drinks and beer along with wings. Their calamari was excellent. For mains we ate burgers and pizza. All was very good. Dinner for 5 about $100.

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.
