“Nice Lunch Stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Very good and unique sandwiches with generous portion sizes. We were a bit disappointed that the price of $11 for a sandwich did not include chips or anything with it, but those prices may be normal for St. Croix. Since we were on a cruise I think I would have rather eaten lunch on the boat, but if I were vacationing in St. Croix I would have it on my list of places to try. The outdoor seating has a beautiful view.

Tip: We had trouble locating it at first thinking we must have passed it but it is located beyond all of the shops in town on Strand St. Eventually you will see a little archway with a path leading to the deli along the shore. All of the locals know where it is at.

“Very nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

We actually ate at Turtles After Dark, which is the upstairs restaurant above the deli. Same great food, good service. They offer a good dinner menu! We had the grouper and champagne chicken. No complaints, it was all great. It's a bit of a local hang out, and they were playing trivia that night, we didn't participate but listening was fun! I can't say much about the view due to darkness,but you could hear the ocean from our table. It's not a fancy place but they have good food, good service, at reasonable prices. There is a bar inside the restaurant with a large bar menu. Large portions abound.

“Turtle's is a must.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

We happened upon Turtle's deli after a quick hike up to the light house and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. We loved it so much that we came back a second time. We even wanted to take some sandwiches to go for our flight but we didn't have time. The people are nice, the sandwiches are great, and the view is perfect. One of the island's best kept secrets.

“Huge portions for reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

The sandwiches are huge (some larger than others). The food is great. The view is spectacular. Note: they only take cash.

“Fantastic sammiches, great hangout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Great sammiches on fantastic made-in-house bread, a great hangout with a beach and pier view. Make sure to take a look at their specials... the couple that runs this place has a great story about how they got to St. Croix, chat them up.
