We came here with my family for a late lunch. We shared loaded nachos and they were delicious. I ordered the tacos; one mahi, one chicken, and one beef. They were okay, nothing to write home about. I would come back again to try other things on the menu. My sister had a mahi sandwich that she... read more

What a great place to have a restuarant bar. The Harbor is wonderful, and the view is perfect. We have eaten at this place for atleast 5 years, and always pledge to never return. Service is slow, if at all. The place runs out of items on a consistent basis. We were there in January, and when we went back... More

Food was a little below average, and the staff made us feel like we were bothering them. Would not go back again.

Pretty average fare - Fish & Chips was three big frozen fish sticks & some French fries - new waitress - probably first hour - might go for the crazy drinks but not for food

First off, I would give the Fat Turtle a 3.5, if was available here TA. We had Wednesday dinner at the Fat Turtle during our recent stay in St. Thomas. After having a couple of beers for our first round, we moved on to two of the Fat Turtle's cocktails, the pain killer and the frozen where to f*** is... More

Good burgers and nice and clean setting in the yacht club area (open for everybody). You can conveniently park your care in the private car park area. However, not a unique Caribbean setting. You could be anywhere in a yacht club on mainland US.

My husband and I had a snack and a drink here while waiting to meet the captain of our sailboat for the afternoon. Cold beer, a great pina colada, and a huge helping of nachos. Great value for the cost, and a great view into the yacht harbor. Can't go wrong!

Nov 12, 2014: The drinks are cold and icy, and the location can't be beaten when going to or from the cruise dock. The area is clean and well tended. The restrooms are well maintained. The server we had was personable and prompt. We didn't spend much, but enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere, under shade, on a hot day when walking... More
