I went to Pineapple Pete at the recommendation of a family member. The quality must have dropped since she visited, because I was not impressed. The food was nothing special, and extremely salty. The service was slow (they are very busy). The atmosphere was stressed, and not at all inviting. There was someone, who I assumed was the manager, who... More

The food was good as a group of 8 of us ate here on our last night. All of our entrees were good but the service was super slow. That's ok tho because when in st Maarten you are on island time. I would recommend this place as the food is good.

Great to see the staff and Pete on our annual vacation. Go early as they get busy fast and seating becomes more difficult. Everything on the menu but I recommend the Lobster Thermidor which can easily be shared. Also their Mojito is outstanding and a specialty of Ziggy !

Went for lunch yesterday. Servers were great. My wife had the garlic shrimp which she enjoyed and could only describe as very garlickey. I had the crab stuffed grouper. Would not recommend it as the crab topping was mushy and mostly filler. The vegetables and rice were bland and nothing special. If u go. Just stick to the basics -... More

If you are looking for an Island Sports Bar this is it! Don't expect the TV quality from your back home bars, but still a lot of fun and good food. We had a mushroom burger and spicy quesadilla's ... all very good and Arkay was a great server. The only disappointment was that the Packer's lost.

This is an annual stop on our yearly trip to the island. This time we went twice...lunch and dinner another day. The salads are amazing, and seafood always tasty. Servers are always friendly.

We went to Pineapple Pete's based up on a recommendation of the concierge at our resort. The first night we had a very lovely dinner worthy of 4 stars. We started with crab cakes that were ok. I had a rib-eye that was made to perfection. My mother had the lobster haven special: 1/2 lobster made thermidor -style and the... More

Best Moijos, Conk Chowder is filling and the Lobster Thermidor is def. sharable. Ask for Ziggy, get there early or make reservations.
