We enjoyed a delicious "local fare" lunch at Petite Pump House - an on the water restaurant conveniently located on Veterans Drive roughly midway between the bustling heart of Charlotte Amalie and the airport. Our friendly private car driver, Michael Campbell, who we had met a week ago at Inn at Blackbeard's Castle, agreed to come out and pick us... More

The Petit Pump Room is an ok place to stop for a beverage if you're waiting for a ferry to depart from the dock which is located just below. The outdoor deck provides a nice view of the harbor and it's nice to watch the coming and going of the seaplane that provides service to St. Croix. But, the food... More

A bit overrated on TripAdvisor. The setting is nice and overlooking the harbor. We had breakfast which was OK but nothing above average. The omlets were tasty but you could make them just as nice at home. I would personally find someplace else for breakfast.

This is always a good place to go for delicious island food. Remarkably the food is always tasting right and made as it should be. No tourist trap or fake food.

Great breakfast at reasonable price! Pancakes we're especially tasty. Nice outdoor seating above the water. Unfortunate ferry and seaplane engine fumes did detract a bit. But we'd definitely go back!

This locally owned restaurant in the heart of Charlotte Amalie offers a variety of daily Local dishes. I LOVE the Lobster special, as well as the OX-Tails. Their Pain-Killer is almost as good as what u get over on Jost Van Dyke! (Yummy). I've even posted pictures on my FB page.

Arrived via air to Charlotte Amalie and took a taxi to the ferry terminal. We had time to kill before the ferry to Road Town departed. The Petite Pump room was a great place to grab a bite to eat and have a cocktail while we waited. Had conch fritters, chips and salsa, and a painkiller. Food was okay, drinks... More
