Wow what a Rueben! Club style and good kraut. Stopped in with the Sweeney Tour and was already quite full which means better seating. You can move around a bit and have some personal space feet from the West side of St. Croix's, Friedrichstadt coastline. Definitely worth the money. Actually saved the Sammy for dinner, em,em. Good job guys and... More

Fredericksted, in the words of my Texas friends, appears to be rode hard and put up wet..... it has seen better days. As the cruise ships generally stop on the west end of the island, this sleepy town ironically keeps the east end pristine. As I was staying on a hill overlooking Teague Bay on the East End, I was...

It's a deli so the sandwiches are not hot on a grill. But still are delicious, and HUGE. Wiht one sandwich believe me 2 person can eat and get satisfied. If you're a solo eater you'll be satisfied too. I love the view of the beach while you're eating.

We enjoyed our lunch at Turtle's Deli. There is a menu of sandwiches, but you can also build your own or modify one on the menu. The bread is baked fresh everyday - we tried the wheat swirl and it was wonderful! The deli is small but has places to eat "under cover" as well as in the open, but... More

Best sandwich on St Croix. The bread is so fresh. Unbelievable variety of sandwiches. The view, with the shop right on the water is unbeatable. If you make it to to the west end this is the only place to have lunch.

This is a family-owned gourmet sandwich shop that never fails to fill and delight! There are not many lunch options in town and this is certainly one of the top, if not the best option! I eat there once a week now since moving to the island.

Great place to relax and have a huge sandwich. Great value for what you get. You will not leave hungry. It is what it claims to be a Deli and they make large fresh sandwiches (hot and cold). You are right on the water with a great view. Like many places on the island they have free roaming chickens. Do... More
