Great food & music.

This place is right next door & part of BananaRama resort. Like I said, the food was great, we ate there 4 times as I recall. Ribs, pizza, grilled fish & lobster. Great hamburgers too.The music was different every night with local musicians.

During our week stay at West Bay the Thirsty Turtle became out home away from home. It does an excellent job at being what it is: A beach side bar and restaurant with a friendly atmosphere and no pretensions. Affordable drinks, fresh food (the lobster bites are a must!) and a staff that takes the time to get to know... More

Returning after our 3rd visit to WB we were disappointed with TT. In the past we often ate & drank here but this year the drinks were weak & the food not as fresh? Example is the burgers were very plain & small compared to last year. The sweet potato fries & pizza night were still a plus!

We were exploring West Bay and stopped by the Thirsty Turtle for some R&R. We ordered lobster bites and drinks and enjoyed our visit quite a bit. I also tried their smoothies, which are delicious! My only complaint is that the service was slow.

This is a very Americanized/touristy restaurant that is completely overpriced, in my opinion. Two people in my party got pizza, which was actually pretty good, and others got a chicken sandwich, a burger, and a brat sandwich. All food was just OK; nothing amazed anyone. Drinks were decent, but again overpriced. For 5 of us the total bill was around... More

Nice beach but the music in the bar was loud. The drinks were excellent and quite reasonable. The food prices were also good and the drinks tasted excellent and had quite a bit of alcohol.

So many restaurants are so expensive in West Bay so it was nice to find a place that had something for everyone (family of 5) at very reasonable prices.

We were just stopping in to have 1 drink.Cool place, full of life on a nice stretch of beach. Ended up staying the whole day. Our bartender Harlan (aka "Smooth") was fabulous with his welcoming personality, very entertaining and kept making some great exotic drinks. Before we knew it we had to get back to our ship. Awesome place to... More

I was in Roatan in a hotel close to here. Was here every night for beer games music and the people! A great place to go! Sunday nights are the best. Crab races fire dancers in the beach and live music

Stopped at the Thirsty Turtle while visiting West Bay Beach. Prompt and friendly service! Views were great - a real beach bar feel to the place! Food was good, nothing special. Typical "pub grub", we split nachos and quesadillas and they were decent. Apparently the pizza is really good and will try that next time. Will definitely return for the... More
