We stopped in Fat Turtle to catch a quick drink and appetizer to hold us over. The drinks were excellent (I ordered a pain killer & bushwhacker) we sat next to the water & enjoyed watching the big fish swimming around. We ordered a pizza & loved it. I would highly recommend stopping in the Fat Turtle.

Food was ok, service was terrible. Waitress hardly said two words to us the whole dinner. Chicken Parm pizza was good. Worth trying if you are going to eat there. Just make sure you don't have the crabby girl waitress.

We had lunch here twice (tried to go to Fresh Bistro once but it was closed for lunch). Good food in a very entertaining setting watching the yachting crowd, with a school of very large and hungry tarpon waiting to help you finish your meal.

Web are a gay couple new to the island. We work near fat turtle and come here for lunch and dinner often. Bartender Erica made us feel so at home. This place has the best pizza on the island.

Nice place to hang for a bit. Basic Applebee's quisine but in a nice spot. Near the cruise so a little overpriced. Would go again

We stopped here on our way back to the ship for a quick lunch and a couple of cold local beers. Staff was good and off the back dock numerous tropical fish were abundant. We would recommend it.

We went for lunch at the Fat Turtle on our way to the Top of the Mountain. The location is great on the dock of the marina with some wonderful yachts from around the Caribbean. The food was good, the veggie pizza would have been enough for two people. The Mahi Mahi Cajun sandwich was very good on the spicy... More
