From succulent, fresh lobster and spicy beer-steeped shrimp to mango and ginger “wings in paradise” and our signature Fat Turtle burgers or brick oven pizzas, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Situated in the midst of the sprawling Yacht Haven Grande Esplanade, yacht crews rave about our festive atmosphere, charter guests and owners revel in our relaxed vacation ambiance, and visitors of all ages take-in our family-friendly, laid back setting.

“Good food”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

Food was okay - usually sandwich/salad type fare. It was fun to eat and take in all the amazing private yachts and cruise ships.
I would eat here again.

“Good for a quick stop”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

We stopped here on our way back to the cruise ship after a long day of walking. It was a good place to stop and wait out the rain. The bathrooms in the back of the building are a bit odd. The beer was the exact same price as on the cruise ship, so don't expect any "island" prices. The service was fast and attentive.

“Perfect for Happy Hour”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

The happy hour starts at 4:00. Get there early for the best view....although all views are good and seating is outside. The happy hour includes some appetizers as well as as drinks. My favorite happy hour appetizer are the wings.

“Great place to Eat on the Harbour”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

While touring the town of Charlotte Amalie with friends from back home we decided to have lunch at the Fat Turtle located right next to the docks buy the harbour. There were a lot of choices on their diverse menu and all were pleased with their food and service. The view of the ships in the harbour was an extra and we all look forward to returning.
