Good Food for Cheap Eats!

We had a great seat overlooking the harbor to start our morning (great breakfast, not many breakfast options). Prices were the best value on the island! If you are looking to save some money on your trip this stop is very affordable with a great view and friendly staff. Bar like atmosphere which... read more

Food was well prepared, but the wait staff were overworked or slow, can't figure out which. Great place to wait for the ferry.

The view from this water-side restaurant was amazing. I had the conch and found it to be delicious. The staff were very friendly and helpful in making my decision as to what to try for lunch.

I visited the Petite Pump Room with a group of 40 fellow college students this January as part of our study abroad trip. The owner made sure we got to try a huge variety of local Caribbean foods - and it was ALL amazing. I loved everything from the fried plantains to the stewed goat to the incredibly flavorful rice...

After a long flight on our way to Marriott's Frenchman's Cove, St Thomas, we always stop here for lunch. This restaurant is on the water where the pontoon planes take off from and the ferrys leave from. Across from Hassel Island, the covered, open deck is a great place to eat. It's a nice way to start our week of... More

We had lunch here while waiting on the ferry. Nothing exciting about the food, but clean and reasonable service.

Have eaten here several times while waiting for the ferry. Always a good snack or meal. Service can seem a little slow at times but that's usually when I'm in a hurry so I'm sure it's just my personal impression. Drinks are good. For a nice view of harbor activity including seaplanes taking off and landing sit on the porch... More

We stayed on St. Thomas for a week and ate at as many different restaurants as possible during the week. St Thomas is an expensive place to eat out and The Petite Pump Room is very competitive. Being right on the water the breeze and view were great. If you like spicy, ask for their house hot sauce for your... More
