Best subs on island! Get there before noon because there homemade bread almost always sells out! My favorite is the raven on sourdough, the sandwiches are HUGE. 13$ is a steal here for the size

This place rocks. Don’t judge a book by its cover, this small deli is delicious. Great spot to chill while you wait for a sandwich and stare at the blue water. It’s right on the beach. I would suggest walking to it, the parking spaces...More

We always visit Turtles for one of their huge sandwiches. Also perfect place to enjoy the beach. Perfect location between where we stay and town.

The sandwiches are piled high with all the fixings. They have comfortable picnic tables overlooking the West End beaches. It's really a great place and a Cruzan fixture. Don't miss it.

Had a business lunch here. Service was a bit slow but the curry chicken salad sandwich was worth the wait. Be warned its messy so you will likely end up eating it with a fork.

Turtles has the best sandwiches. Whenever we visit STX, Turtles is a must stop during the trip. The sandwiches and bread are freshly made and we often get two meals out of them as they are very thick. It is a place we look forward...More
