While my husband and I were staying on St. John we decided to give Fatty Crab a try after seeing the chef on an episode of Chopped on the Food Network. We walked in and it was practically empty (still low season) so there was no problem getting a seat. The hostess sat us and our server then came over to tell us how it worked. You would basically pick a few items on the menu and they would bring it out one at a time while everyone tries it (similar to tapas).
For the first course we had two orders of the fish fry sliders - which were amazing - made with fresh wahoo. The next course was an order of the soft shell crab sandwich, followed by pork spare ribs. All were eaten too quickly before I could take a picture. Following the ribs, we had the watermelon pickle and crispy pork belly which was delicious. The last course was a pulled leg of lamb with a mint curry yogurt served on a roti.
Everything was delicious and the service was outstanding. I would DEFINITELY go there again!
I highly recommend checking out Fatty Crab while on St. John.
