Everything was delicious. Had the beef sandwich, turkey, and a hot chicken Reuben. The beef or turkey were our favorites. Plan to go back while here.

Came by for a relaxing BBQ lunch at one of their picnic tables overlooking the Caribbean sea. Brisket/Sausage with a side of cole slaw and cornbread. $21 and very good meat. I have never been disappointed at Turtle's, either old regime or new.

You order your sandwich and buy your drink at a enclosed building, then walk out towards the beach to the picnic tables to await your order being called. Overall it is pretty quick and when you unwrap your choice of sandwiches you will be thrilled!...We had the rueben which comes on marbled rye and a chicken sandwich which came on a "hoagie" bun. Both were delicious and much too large to finish at one setting. We had brought a small cooler bag and used that to transport the leftovers home for a snack! The taste of the rueben was fantastic and the wife bragged about the chicken, so it had to have been good as well. Needless to say, the best sandwiches on the island were at Turtle's Deli!More

If you are in or near F'sted during the day, this is a great place to stop. We ate at a lot of different places in nearly a month on island, from cheap to expensive. For the price, Turtle's Deli was one of the best--the...Reubens were fantastic with either pastrami or corned beef, the marbled rye bread was top shelf, the turkey and cranberry sandwich was awesome, etc. I wanted to order the BBQ but couldn't get off the Reubens (3 or 4 times). The staff was fantastic--GREAT service. PS the sandwiches are EASILY big enough for two people unless you want to waddle out. The buffalo chicken dip was a great snack to buy for the beach or to take home to eat poolside. BUT one of the absolute best things I ate in a month: homemade carrot cake cupcakes at Turtles. Wow.. just wow....More

We went for BBQ and were very disappointed. Brisket was not available so I tried the pulled chicken sandwich. It was unflavored, no taste, overcooked, and dry. Even drowning it in the watery BBQ sauce couldn't help. My wife had a BLT and the bacon...was not even cooked and the tomato was green. We showed the kitchen staff and they just shrugged and said sorry. We threw it all away. Never going back.More

It is now called Turtles Deli and barbecue. I cannot speak on the deli side, but I DO NOT recommend ordering from the barbecue menu. We visited as a family of 4 on a Sunday. This was my second visit. I rarely write negative reviews...but I felt the need to provide the type of review I wish I had. Pros: +barbecue sauces - they taste homemade +honey spiced chicken +smoked mahi dip and crostinis So-so: ~pasta salad ~potato salad Terrible: -brisket - served pulled, mushy, no char, unseasoned -Smoked Mac - not cheese, unseasoned -Baked beans - beans were not fully cooked -Corn bread - dry I have not tried the desserts yet but I will not be back. Checkout Riso’s barbecue for anything on the menu or blues barbecue for wings, brisket and sausage.More

This was probably the most proper Rueben sandwich I have had in awhile! It was huge so my friend and I shared. Perfect scenery and delicious lunch. The chickens running around made it feel like home.

Those of you familiar with Zingermans in Ann Arbor will relate: Zingermans size sandwiches and almost as good. Spent three hours sitting with island breeze and V & Ts. Recommend the club sandwich. Big enough for two. Crispy bacon, good bread and fresh tomato and...lettuce. Spent the afternoon enjoying the true island vibe. (Reasonable prices too .)More

We love here in St Croix and visit Turtles from time to time. On this particular visit the order was for take-out. This can be risky because by the time you open your package you may be miles away. ( check it before you leave)...I need to take my own advice, because I ordered a BLT and at $15.00 it should be awesome, but you guessed it, it wasn’t. It was by far the worst sandwich I have ever had at Turtles and rates in the top 5 Worst I have ever had anywhere. The bread was stale, stiff, and falling apart, the bacon was chewy and tasteless, the lettuce and tomato were ok but not enough was provided. The best part f the meal was the bag of chips. My advice is to never, ever choose this sandwich but if you do open the wrapper and take a bite before you leave. Please order something else I wasted the 15.More

Gourmet doesn’t cut it when you describe their sandwiches. Delicious, GIANT sandwiches on fresh baked bread, served by a wonderfully friendly staff. It’s a must for lunch in Frederiksted!

Had the Turkey Ruben one day, The Beast on the next. Both were outstanding. Hard not to just go here over and over and over again. Good sized portions - you're not leaving hungry. Highly recommend.

Love this deli. Sandwiches are large with good, fresh toppings. Recent merge with Smoke restaurant adds nice bbq options. Great location looking out over the water. This is a must visit if you are in Frederiksted.

Great new partnership between Turtles and the smoked bbq place, hit the spot after snorkeling the pier. I'm a mostly veggie person, and enjoyed their veggie sandwich that included tasty portobellos and pesto, something I never would have thought to combine myself but now will!...My husband enjoyed the beef brisket sandwich, and we both got sides of smokin mac which was amazing (probably has meat in it so may not be for pure vegetarians). Had a great selection, can't wait to try some other items next visit!More
