We sat at the bar to watch the Patriots-Ravens game and had great service from the bartender. He explained that the food would be brought out as the dishes were ready, like tapas. We shared a very fresh green salad and then the best pad...More

We loved the menu choices and the food did not disappoint. It was well prepared, nicely presented and delicious. We were a group of five and were seated near the bar. Unfortunately the music was loud enough to distract from our conversation and there was...More

We visited on New Years eve and weren't impressed with the food or the way it came out to the table. Every entrée came out at different times. There were six of us and five of us were all done eating by the time the...More

At first glance the Fatty Crab is not overly inviting and a few hundred from the action, but don't let that fool you. The food is awesome, creative and fresh. Being a sushi lover, I had to sample some of the fresh daily catch and...More

A huge boatload of rice next to a small portion of glorified meat. Not sure what all the fuss is about.

The "Love City" cocktail was amazing - something you'd expect from NYC. Crisp, fresh, and cooling. Perfect for the Virgin Islands. We enjoyed the Papaya Mango Salad and Sesame Shrimp appetizers. Both outstanding. Had House Ramen and Pad Thai main courses. Also spectacular and had...More

This place has a very interesting menu and have won awards for their drinks (which were amazing). However be prepared that each order comes out as it becomes ready so it's meant for sharing and may take a while, but worth it!

Ate here on a crowded night and sat and ate at the bar. Brandon took great care of us and we had more fun eating at the bar than we would have at a table. Food came and was served family style. Many fun different...More

Fatty Crab is a much sought after destination in NYC. For some reason it is mostly empty here in Cruz Bay but the food is absolutely up to snuff, by far the best culinary experience in Cruz Bay if not particularly local in its vernacular.

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!
