“Enough for two (meals or people)”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

There is a large variety of interesting sandwich combinations. Something to please everybody. The staff is also very flexible with special requests. For those with a smaller appetite, order one sandwich and share or be prepared for left overs. The owner gave us an interesting talk about recycling on the island and only gave us a plastic bag after we promised to dispose of it properly. He obviously cared about the island very much. The food was great and the value outstanding!

“Huge sandwiches and GREAT VALUE”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

The sandwiches at Turtle's Deli are excellent and enormous, enough for lunch and dinner. Eating at Turtle's might have been the best value we found on the entire island. And the view of the ocean is outstanding. This place is a MUST if you're on St. Croix.

“AWESOME! YOU GET MORE THAN YOU PAY FOR!!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

We stopped by based on recommendation from a member (Chris from D.C.) of Big Beard's crew after half day snorkeling trip. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but it was the best lunch we had during our entire vacation! Located right on the beach...you can move your table or chair to the beach if you wanted to! The sandwiches are made to order and huge!!! Bread/buns/rolls are fresh! They have a large selection/variety of soft drinks and beer to go with your sandwich too! Each sandwich comes with a large crisp dill pickle! What a nice, relaxing place on the ocean. The owner (we think it was the owner) was very friendly and had no problems with our car staying in the lot while we walked around. Recommend not eating breakfast if you are going to eat there so you are starving and can eat every bite of your sumptuous deli sandwich. We would even go so far to say this place rivals New Orleans's "The Central Grocery's" muffelatta!! YOU DON'T GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR, YOU GET MORE!

“Excellent sandwiches and good value”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

My wife and I had lunch here on 2/5/13 and we split a smoked turkey sandwich w/ cole slaw as a side. As everyone has already stated, the sandwiches are large (enough for two unless you're REALLY hungry!) and it was incredibly good, not to mention a great value at $10. The view is great and it's a nice place to just chill out and relax as you eat and have a couple beers. Walk inside, give your order from the menu on the board, grab a couple drinks out of the cooler, grab a table outside and chill as you wait for your name to be called. Too bad it's in Fredericksted and not Christiansted, but then, Fredericksted needs it as your food choices there are pretty limited.
