Fun place for a quick bite

We had a great meal and drinks. If you're looking for atmosphere, there are certainly plenty of better choices on the island, but the food and mojitos were tasty. Our waiter was very attentive and made great suggestions. The jerk chicken was fabulous! Definitely worth a stop if you're just... read more

We have visited Pete's numerous times over the years and always had a decent experience. He have noticed that when we venture outside the "burger" portion of the menu, we aren't all that impressed. We were looking for a quick dinner the night before our departure, so we dropped by Pete's in the midst of a rain storm. Service, as... More

Famous for their Lobster Thermidor but for me, it tasted just ok. Would have preferred to just have grilled lobster but not on the menu. Too much breading on the conch and was gummy. Their wine selection is better Service is great! There is a small section for kids to play pool and run around. Entertainment was excellent. There was... More

We visited Pineapple Pete's for dinner on a recent stay in St. Maarten and it was much more than we expected. The open air ambiance along with the very talented musician playing made this restaurant very inviting. The cocktails were large and high quality and the wait staff went out of their way to make you feel like you were... More

Hat's off to the staff at Pineapple Pete's! Our family went to eat there twice while we were on vacation to Saint Martin. Our food was excellent along with the desserts. Had a blast with their staff. There was one of the waiters asking us how many forks or spoons we needed for our dessert. I included him in the... More

Just reminds us of a overrated hamburg and fish fry tourist type restaurant. If you're on an island should try something else which leaves you feeling like you're away from USA chain type eating establishments. SXM has many other better places to eat.

Just visited St. Marteen on a solo trip and enjoyed my visit to this restaurant. This place has a lot of character, lots of people, great ambience and music to the ears. The staff is great and the on floor manager is top notch. Started with the escargot and with all the resaurants on the island it is my favorite.... More
