Description: Serving Funky Southeast Asian Inspired Cuisine!We serve our food in an unconventional manner, where there are no appetizers or entrees. The food comes out of the kitchen as it is prepared by the Chef. Therefore, we recommend ordering several dishes off of the menu and encourage sharing. Our cuisine is made up of locally sourced ingredients when available. Our flavor profiles are comprised of spice, sweet, sour, salty, and savory. Our cocktails are just as flavorful and as interesting as our cuisine. All of our wines were sourced from Michael Skurnik Wines and were hand-picked by Michael himself. The wines were selected to complement the wide variety of flavors in our cuisine and they were shipped in temperature controlled containers to ensure the integrity of the wines.We believe this style of dining creates an intimate, comfortable, and fun atmosphere. We serve sophisticated dishes in an unpretentious manner.If you are a diner looking for a traditional dining experience, there are lots of other great restaurants on island, come in for a drink and we'll recommend a few.Live well and be happy!

Food was outstanding as usual- drinks as well. Brandon the bartender came to our table and was extremely helpful in guiding us towards the perfect cocktail. Delish all the way around!

My husband and I ate appetizers here and they were very good. Our favorite was the fried fish sliders. They were made with mahi and hawaiian rolls. We also had watermelon juice. That was expensive, but very refreshing and was nice to see on a menu.

Read the reviews and arrived when they opened to find no one there. One family showed up as well without a reservation. We were seated in a very very small table not in a great location which I thought was strange since the entire restaurant was empty. We even stopped by an hour later after we ate, still no one there. Food was exceptional though. The BBQ appetizer was really amazing. And the server was great, very friendly (I should have said something about our lone table!)

Great selection, informed and friendly servers. Wonderful for a larger party that wants to sample different fare. One of St. John's best casual restaurants.

Over a year and a half of living on St. Thomas, and in the restaurant industry, Fatty Crab consistently delivered excellence. Whether it was with the creative, full-flavored menu selections, the delicious cocktails or the friendly service, Fatty Crab rocks. I must have visited a total of 10 times. I highly recommend their chupacabra and gin & tonics from the cocktail menu and the fish fry sliders, veggie tempura, and brisket above all else. Now that I've moved I miss it dearly! Go now!
