This was our 2nd time in 2 years at the Fat Turtle and will return on our next trip to St. Thomas. Great outdoor covered seating facing the yachts, fast service, good food and reasonably priced. Recommended for families with kids. Delicious desserts too!

My wife and I called here on our way back to our cruise ship after a long day and tour on the island. Sat at the table, a very pleasant lady came to us gave us menus and asked what we wanted to drink. Had a drink only as we were going to eat on board shortly. Drinks were reasonable... More
