The owners picked the right animal for their logo--the service is very slow. If you are island time and not in a hurry to get somewhere, this is an excellent choice for lunch. We opted for the half sandwich and salad combination and I can't imagine eating a whole sandwich--the half, pepper turkey, was on wonderful bread and a huge... More

We stopped by here on the advice of our scuba dive guide. We were starving after having gone scuba diving at the pier. A variety of sandwiches both standard and custom are on the menu. Drinks and chips are "on your honor", take what you want but be honest when you tell them what you took. Picnic tables are right... More

Having been to Turtle's Deli on our last trip to STX, we knew this was on our "must return" list. The sandwiches are huge and really delicious. Once the sandwiches arrive at the picnic table under the trees just several feet from the water, all talking ceased and just eating noises start. I couldn't even get past the thought of... More

Never thought I would review a sandwich shop, but this I can't resist. An out of this world great sandwich. Big enough for 2 adults to share. Fresh meat and vegetables on the sandwich. Picked up one day to take with us for later. The sandwich was so good we came back another day and ate there.

Not your normal deli. Great sandwiches made with homemade bread and large portions. You can sit at picnic tables at the waters edge. Great spot to stop for lunch.

If you're in the mood for an awesome sandwich, this is the place. We ordered the Club and and Reuben Sandwich and they were both the best we had ever had. Great beach front picnic table. Get there early to avoid any lines!

The sandwiches were very good and large. The seaside tables are a great place to eat lunch. Be prepared for island time getting your sandwich though. Just get a drink and relax and wait on the sandwich.

Outstanding sandwiches! Made-to-order deli-style sandwiches piled high on super-soft, fresh bread. The sandwiches are very large/filling, and I often split one with a friend but my husband seems to manage it just fine! Hours of this deli are unpredictable with seemingly no set hours, however, this may be due to the time of year I'm visiting--after Christmas and through the... More

We drove out to Turtle's for lunch from the east end and it was well-worth it, we been here a number of times and we are never disappointed. The sandwiches were huge and delicious. And you cannot beat the view of the Frederiksted Pier and the Caribbean.
