What makes Fat Turtle a nice place for lunch is the view of Yacht Haven Grande and the yachts that are there. The food is good and served promptly. The only true negative has more to do with some of the customers who make a habit of scrapping the remnants of their meal into the bay to see the fish... More

Our food (a salad and a sandwich) was nothing memorable but we had a marina side table and enjoyed watching the boats. Service was slow and the crowd thin.

Food was excellent service was not great. 10% tip at best for service. I had the salmon which was a large portion with 2 sides and a side salad. It was delicious. We also had a mahi mahi sandwich and kids pasta with a side of chicken. Everybody was very happy with food selections

The food here is equivalent to Chili's at best. The bartenders are constantly spouting loud foul language despite it being Family Night at YHG and 5 pm. There are much better options in st thomas - spend your money elsewhere.

I will say that if you want to come and sit at the bar for drinks then this is a great spot. Eating out on the patio on the dingy, rusting, discolored tables.. well, that instantly made me wonder about the food. This is why I am giving the review 3 stars. The food was actually pretty good which was... More

We stopped here with friends on a Thursday night for drinks. Their happy hour was great with 2 dollar domestics and 5 dollar tacos. The service was great until we closed our tab and because they switched shifts. Then we no longer had a server! Lol we went to bar to get our drinks but weren't acknowledged. Would have had... More

Wonderful pizza. If you like a bushwhacker drink this is one of the best I ever had. The setting is nice right on the water where the yachts dock.

We took a short break here while shopping. The server was friendly but the food left a little to be desired. Not a bad stop, could do much worse at other places.

Excellent restaurant inside a cruise stop upscale shopping mall. A limited but excellent menu in this outdoor restaurant. I would definitely put this on my must visit list with some shopping after dinner😊
