Good enough to eat

The restaurant is a favorite for us. We come back every year. The food is good and plentiful and the staff are very friendly. We also enjoy the music.

Pete's definitely catches your eye as you drive by and it's worth a stop to check it out. They're known for everything pineapple related and their wings. The wings were really good but the burger was nothing special. Some of their drinks were crazy and worth checking out.

This is one of our favorite places to eat. Had a wonderful lunch and dinner this time around. The service is great and the food is delish. I highly recommend the french onion soup and pork tenderloin. Hubby loves their burgers. The lobster thermidor is the best !! A friend got the rack of lamb and said it was the... More

Wow! Although prices are high (a St. Maarten standard, I think!), you get lots of food and will not leave hungry! I love seafood, and you can get it here! The Lobster Thermidor was over the top. However, we would have preferred to just have a lobster, w/o all the sauce, even though it was good. We would try this... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by another beach goer in St Maarten. They had the best tender ribs around the island.

The food was mediocre for the price paid, nothing special to remember. It was noisy and there are much better places around to eat. Not worth to spend you hard earned there.

Pineapple petes is recommended by locals. We had dinner here during our island stay. It is a short drive from Divi Little Bay. The Lobster Themidor is very good. Just be prepared for a rich meal. It is enough for 2 people.

While on the Island, we ate here once for lunch and 3 times for dinner Menu is excellent, service is good and the food is very good. They have guitar player at dinner and he plays soft-medium music. Hard to find a place to park but well worth it

We had never eaten here before so we decided to give it a try on this trip. We started with some appetizers, the pork dumplings and the conch fritters. The conch was great and since my wife doesn't eat seafood I had to eat all 3 myself, darn. She had the pork tenderloin and I tried the specialty crab stuffed... More

We always go to Pete's for lunch on our first and last day as well as at least two dinners during our four week stay in St. Maarten. The lobster thermidor and lamb chops are superb as well as anything with grouper (very fresh). This place is popular with locals as well as tourists because of great food, great service,... More
