Wonderful pizza. If you like a bushwhacker drink this is one of the best I ever had. The setting is nice right on the water where the yachts dock.

We took a short break here while shopping. The server was friendly but the food left a little to be desired. Not a bad stop, could do much worse at other places.

Excellent restaurant inside a cruise stop upscale shopping mall. A limited but excellent menu in this outdoor restaurant. I would definitely put this on my must visit list with some shopping after dinner😊

We went on the advice of our hotel staff and found a great place for dinner. Seaside tables and feeding the fish (very large fish) was an unexpected treat. Huge Mahi sandwich was great. Cold beer and a view of the bay was a treat. Go here and enjoy.

We have been to Fat Turtle a few times on our trips to St. Thomas. It has a nice bar and will cater to request of different sports games the guests would like to see.

After a day of shopping in town we stopped here. The area is full of shops and a nice marina. Restaurant overlooks the bay ...food was good and their drinks were amazing. Service was a bit slow but overall is a great place to stop eat in the downtown shopping area.

Affordable drinks and finger food served right on the canal-front seawall. Unbelievably clear water revealed many varieties of fish swimming by. Great place for sunsets!

Granted we went to St Thomas in the "off-season" and many shops were closed in the harbor, we enjoyed a great lunch at Fat Turtle. The calamari appetizer was the best we've ever had! Our Mahi-Mahi sandwich was delicious, a bit spicey for me, but still delicious. The staff was attentive and very friendly. If we are ever in the... More

Service very slow and the food was mediocre. Late evening dinner and apps and the view of the harbor was nice. No entertainment.
