“Amazing food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Out of all the restaurants in the Abacos, I enjoyed Pete's Pub the most. Finding it was definitely an adventure (and one I'm not sure the rental car was up to) but we finally managed to bump our way down a long, winding dirt road to Little Harbour. The place is simply a bunch of picnic tables gathered around a small bar - the floor is the beach and the wooden ceilings are covered with assorted t-shirts from around the world. If you are looking for something fancy, this is not the place. If you are looking for a laid-back vibe and prefer to enjoy your rum punch with your toes in the sand, then this is the right spot! We enjoyed the Blasters (rum punch) - very potent, but a little heavy on the grapefruit juice. However, after having lots of sweet rum punches all week, the acidity was refreshing. The food is excellent. We had the conch fingers - a huge platter with very fresh, perfectly fried conch with just the right amount of crispy breading. The triggerfish was amazing, and the burger was quite good with a nice, fresh baked bun. Highly recommend this for a relaxed place to enjoy an excellent meal.

“First Night on Abaco”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

So we landed in Marsh Harbor and drove to Pete's Pub for dinner. What a great location in the middle of nowhere. We started getting into island time as soon as we arrived. It was by far the best fish diner of the trip at a restaurant. The waitress and bartender where very friendly and was a great start to our couples week in Abacos.

“Great Beach Bar!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012 via mobile

What a find! Driving to get there seemed to take forever....but it was worth it! A real " old timey" beach bar....built on the sand from old timbers....so neat! The cheese burgers were wonderful....the best we had on our 2 week trip! They were served with peas 'n rice and a wonderful pineapple coleslaw! The Little Harbor setting was pretty.....a real Gilligan's Island!

“Don't waste your time”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012 via mobile

We recently went to Pete's and have never felt so uninvited. The bartender would not speak, the beer was warm, and the crowd was the old, crusty hard core drunks. Never again.....

We apologize for your luckluster experience at Pete's Pub. We are sorry. I have already spoken to our bartenders about your review. If possible, can you tell me when you were here & describe the bartender.
Pete's Pub does get all kinds, from the well heeled at the Ritz down the way to the crustiest single handed sailboater.
Thank you for your time & we hope you enjoyed your time in the Abacos elsewhere,
Heather

“I come to Pete's 2-3 times per year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2011

Without exception Pete's Pub provides the most authentic beachfront food and drink in the Bahamas. "No shoes, no shirts, no problem". The seafood is all locally caught and the libation is, well, from wherever and plentiful. Never caught a bad buzz there...
Any visit to Abaco needs to include a visit to Pete's. I made my first stop there in 1970 while on Christmas Vacation from college on a 30' bareboat sloop w/ schoolmates and have never looked back.. The Pub at that time was the deckhouse off the schooner which the Johnstons sailed there to carve out this beautiful paradise, Catch Pete, Greg, Heather and Tyler while you can. You will not be sorry.
