The Fat Turtle is a great little stop for lunch or drinks.. You can sit next to the water and look at all the mega yacht's, and all the big fish that swim next to the rail. Drinks are good, pizza is good..

This establishment has a great atmosphere. Even as a tourist you are treated as though "everyone knows your name."

Fat Turtle is a family-oriented restaurant at water's ege in Yacht Haven Grande in Charlotte Amalie harbor. A great selection of food along with low-cost domestic beers.

This place is definitely not trying to hard. The menu is standard pub fare, though the vegetarian member of our crowd was easily able to find options. The service was not too attentive, but when we left, our waitress was able to quickly get us...More

Had lunch here while in port with a cruise line. The beers & handmade drinks were ice cold, the food hot & tasty and the service impeccable. We had pizza, grilled mahi mahi sandwiches & a chicken cesar wrap. If you like good food, cold...More
