Fair Price and Food is Okay

They had IPA beer that was nice. We ordered Chicken Salad that was fine (7-10) , mozzerla sticks (7-10), and Nachoes that were terrible (2-10). Great setting at fair price for drinks, but not getting quality food experience.

This place was very convenient to/from the airport for us, so we actually ate there when we first arrived and also on our way to the airport at the end of our trip. The food was good, typical fare for a dock-side restaurant. Good service, huge yachts to admire at the marina. Parking was super easy. The chicken Caesar wrap... More

Food was mediocre and the service was less than that. Nobody looked happy to be working there. No one seemed happy to have anyone coming there to eat. Looked more like an inconvenience

When our flight was delayed we did not get into town, checked in and settled until well after 9pm. The Fat Turtle was one of the only places in town that was still open. We had fish and chips and the jerk mahi sandwich. It is in the marina where every seat is on the water and you can have... More

We have a very nice meal here. Very well conceived menu and good execution on every dish. We particularly liked the jerk chicken wings. My fish sandwich was complemented by the sweet flavor of a cooked plaintain while my wife's snapper fillet was well-seasoned and complimented with sides. Good service. Good value all around.

My wife and I stopped in here for lunch. The view of the yachts and cruises is cool. The service was prompt and friendly. The Mahi Sandwich was excellent.

We had salads and pizza. Nothing fancy, but it was good and the service was excellent. The place was very clean and we couldn't have asked for them to be anymore efficient. We would have eaten there again.

Had lunch here with my wife during a cruise stop. The servers were pleasant and the service was quick. We had a Hawaiian style pizza. I enjoyed it but my wife thought that the ham 'chunks' were way too large. If I'm every in St. Thomas again, I'd go back.
