Drinks were a little expensive and not very strong. We were there while the after work happy hour crowd was dominating the bar. Felt a little ignored, hard to get good service. I understand - it's busy and the bartender is going to gravitate more towards the regulars. But, as a tourist, in a touristy area, it isn't a bar... More

We have eaten at the Fat Turtle on our last 2 trips to St. Thomas. Nothing spectacular, but nice atmosphere on the marina, easy parking and moderate priced food.

I would say it's probably a good fast food place. We had some Jazz as a bonus on Sunday night. Definitely directed at Cruise Ship Tourism. Mahi sandwich was ok. Good views of the marina are a bonus. Fast, friendly service, but I would probably still not go back.

The family loves the location and looking over the pier at all the fish! Now to the food. The Turtle has above average pub food, excellent service and a very good overall experience. Highly recommend for families or with friends.

This place was alright. I ate here on a family trip and everything was good enough. However, my order seemed not to have been put in because my food didn't come out with everyone else's and the server didn't even notice. She obviously forgot to put my order in. I work as a waiter myself so I am very forgiving... More

The fat turtle's main attraction is it's location. It overlooks the marina and the bay. The pizza is brick oven and is tasty.

We arrived at Fat Turtle early to grab a bite before heading over to Water Island. The food and drinks were great, the service very friendly. We actually stayed a little longer than planned and caught the next ferry to Water Island. Next time we stay at Magens Hideaway, we will definitely come back!

My boyfriend who is a local suggested this place for a lunch date during my visit to St. Thomas. It was a nice cabana-style restaurant in the Yacht Haven. The service was great, the prices were okay and the food was awesome. There was also an amazing view of the yachts and the marina. I would definitely go again.
