This restaurant had food for everyone in our family - especially the kids. It's not fancy or heavily local, but the food was good. Pizzas were great. Calamari was good. My son liked the fried cheese sticks.

Food was awful except the wings. Waitress never once checked on us after delivering the food. My husband never received part of his meal and waters were never refilled. I had to ask for the check and didn't even eat the Mahi that came on...More

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..

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.

Cool atmosphere, very good wings. I would go again and again for the wings. Please remember everyone is on island time. Be patient. There's no such thing as fast food here or any other restaurant.
