Oh my! Love, love, love Pineapple Pete's. Beautiful outdoor setting, great service, great food, drinks and jazz guitarist to listen to. The Shrimp Brushetta Linguine is difficult to describe - large butterflied shrimp, tomatoes, garlic, oil, linguine.....A must visit.

What a surprise. The place was deceiving. The front is a bit run down but inside was clean open and relaxing. The food excellent. Know for lobster thermador. All good portions. Well worth the price. Will definitely go next time.
