Although the name is cute and the bar sits right next to the cruise ship docks, Fat Turtle is just a typical bar. The staff was friendly and the service was fine, but it didn't make me want to come back there again. Nice view but I think the bar catered to cruise ship workers and tourists, it really isn't what I would call a "local" bar.

The food was mostly bar food and overpriced. We had a party of 12 and no one was a fan of what they ordered. Delly Deck was way better.

Fat Turtle has a great location on the water. We went for drinks, which were delicious. I recommend the pitcher of Tortuga Gorda. Our group also had nachos, which I would characterize as normal bar type nachos. I'm glad we stopped in at this local spot for the drinks and the view.

Nice view, nice atmosphere.... However, we werent impressed and didnt go back. We enjoyed the less touristy places. This restaurant was right next to where the cruise lines come in so they were geared more toward the cruisers...
