The place has been empty for days. No music, no employees, no customers, no lights. I've heard that they closed down because they couldn't pay the rent

a great place to eat and listen to music. We have eaten there several time, including New Year's Eve, and have never been disappointed with the food. Great bands as well.

Having been there before, I hope they were just having a bad night on our last visit. After seating us, it took a good length of time before our drink order was taken, finally that came and we [l;ace our meal requests. My wife ordered Fish Taco's and asked the waitress if they were very spicy. The waitress said no... More

Why sit home on a Friday night....when you can go listen to the sweet voice of Latraia Savage and her band. They are excellent! Music started at 7:30 PM. We got there after Happy Hour - it's from 4-7 PM - we still ordered some wings and beer. The wings were excellent! Would have been better if we made it... More

Although my party was only here for the band and drinks, we had a terrific time. Looking forward to going back to eat dinner. Fun! Fun! Fun!

They need a good cook and it sounds like they need some good bands. Also, they need more attentive wait staff. We were in town and noticed that they were doing trivia on Monday nights. Because my Wife and I love trivia, we jumped in the car and ran over. Had fun with the trivia but that was as far... More

Pineapples is kind of an institution around here. I've eaten at the bar (not in the restaurant) and the food is really good. Happy Hour ..... Of course! and at nite .... Usually some kind of band. Some good and some ....... Oh dear .... Not so. The place seems to have LOADS of locals and characters and when you... More

This restaurant has location, but nothing else. The food is ill-prepared and the wait staff is ill-prepared as well. So many more good restaurants to visit in Venice, FL.

Our second visit to Pineapples was disappointing from last year's visit. The entertainment was especially good with the band Bandana performing. The decor is still attractive. The service was less than spectacular. My wife had Fish Tacos, I had a Philly Steak Sub. The Sub was OK, the tacos were overpriced and my wife could not even eat them. We... More

After the reviews I read we almost did not try this place. We found it to be good food, good service, great atmosphere, awesome island style music. Glad we stopped.
