Best meal in Frederiksted

We ate at Turtle's Deli a handful of times during our stay at The Cottages in November. We loved our sandwiches (which are HUGE - often would eat the second half for dinner or lunch the next day). We had fun watching the little baby chicks run around and the view is awesome. We would definitely... read more

It was good and large portions. But sandwiches and deli meat are not anything to be too overly excited about. Due to these reviews had to try it. I would have given 4 stars but the guy (owner?) at the counter wasn't too friendly and acted like we were an inconvenience. So much more friendly places to spend my $.

Great and unique sandwiches. All huge, most big enough to share. Sandwiches run $10 to $14. Went there 2 times with friends. Our favs are the smokin chicken, tuna melt, and the Beast. Very casual place with plastic chairs located on the beach. It's a great stop after scuba diving or swimming. No worries about wet suits or bare feet.

Go early, preferably at 11:00 because it gets quite busy and it will take some time for your order. Your order is taken at the counter and you wait outside - they'll yell out your name when its ready. They take cash only. Seating is limited - about 12 tables. Parking is limited. Be careful pulling in & out the... More

Sandwiches are so big you cannot eat a whole one.We had the Reuben with marinated sauerkraut and the Raven - turkey, cheddar and bacon. Excellent!

Even before I get my meal, I am submitting a review to warn of the rude service. The man at the counter was VERY RUDE! If we weren't super hungry, we would have gone elsewhere.

My parents came down to visit from Chicago, and this is by far the best place to get a Reuben Sandwich anwyhere! My mom loves it, and is specifically requesting next time she is here... More

Great sandwiches. I had a Reuben and could only eat half. Right on the water and very popular. Good place for lunch.

It wasn't busy when we went, but it was clear that the staff (i guy) would rather we hadn't come. He did eventually summon us to get our food, and even let on where the napkins were. The view is lovely but we wouldn't go back.

As most other reviews have mentioned, Turtle's Deli has one of the best sandwiches on the island! It is big and worth the price, they are all around $10-14 from what I saw. We ordered the Italian and Hot Chicken sandwiches and they were both delicious. We couldn't eat the whole thing in one sitting so we took it home,... More
