Went twice in one week and really enjoyed the food. I consider it the best burger on the island.
However, drinks are good but food service is very slow. 45 minutes from food order to delivery. Weak. Can be hit or miss sometimes on food delivery speed.

Our party of 4 was seated right away. Drinks quick. Food was slow. Wife's pizza came out 20 minutes or more after 3 other meals. 18% was automatically included in bill. Would not recommend. Too many other good places.

Because of the great location, being right on the water, prices were a bit steep and the appitizers were small. We ordered the calamari and conch fritters and were surprised at the size for the price.

Fat Turtle is right on the water. We always have good service here. It's a great place to get a sandwich and a frozen drink while shopping. Nice spot for people watching or checking out the boats in the harbor. Fun night scene!

This is a nice place to stop and have a bite to eat or a drink. The scenery is pretty cool being right on the harbor.
