We drove all the way across the island to have lunch at Turtle's Deli only to find it closed in the middle of the day! The upstairs was open, however, so we ventured up to "Turtle's After Dark"...

Here the views, service and drinks were pleasant enough, but the food was lousy. My hot dog bun was rock hard and the nachos kind of odd. Basically they just have greesy, bad bar food there...

A serious disappointment given the whole round trip from Christiansted took us about 4 hrs!

My wife and I went into Frederiksted and stopped here for lunch. It was enjoyable and offered a great view of the water and the cruise ship pier. My wife said her grilled Mahi Mahi sandwich was good and she enjoyed the home fries as a side dish. The cheeseburger and onion rings were very good. The Caribs were ice cold. We would go back again.

Our cruiseship docked in St. Croix for half a day and my husband and I grabbed a map and started out on our own walking tour. Just when we thought we were at the edge of town I spotted the sign "Turtles Deli". Even though it was only 10 am we thought we would wander around and take a look. It truly was a great find, right on the beach!!!!! We sat down grabbed a couple of beers and wine, met the owner Bob, ordered the Spicy Chicken Deli sandwich and decided we had hit paradise. The sandwich was incredible!!! So fresh, tasty and filling. It was also a great change from our cruise dining!! Free wifi, and our pleasure hearing Bob's story. More than highly recommend it!!! Huge assortment of deli sandwiches from veggie to beef, chicken to asst meats etc. And the view........breathtaking. We could have spent the whole day there!! Oh well there's always next time :)

They have excellent sandwiches and they are absolutely huge! We ate there three times during our stay. The ultimate club was the best. All the sandwiches are big enough to share. The prices are very reasonable. It's a nice place to relax and eat on the beach.

You will not be disappointed in these sandwiches. They are huge! They average $10, chips are $1.25, canned drinks are $1. We had the ultimate club and it was plenty for the two of us. Seating is limited, but right on the beach. We ate on site twice and also got an order to go. It is a really good value. The ingredients were always fresh and the bread was fantastic. We had the ultimate club, Cajun jack, the beast, the Reuben, and the smoked turkey! Nice folks and great sandwiches!
