Nice place with good food and drinks very friendly staff! Really wanted to come back here with the group but ran out of vacation before we could. I hate it when that happens!

We had a great time with live music and great food. The servings were huge and delicious! The staff was friendly and the vibe was so Island chill.

Three of us went for dinner and wound up sharing four different appetizers (dumplings, crab cakes, crab stuffed shrimp, lobster escargot style) and, a large chicken caesar salad. Everthing was simply scumptuous, very fresh and the price very reasonable. The service is excellent and friendly with a lively atmosphere. We will definintely be returning to Pineapple Pete's to try more... More

Been going to St. Smarten for 36 years and have dined at Pineapple Pete's more than a dozen times. The food is always very good and they serve a great variety. I've often ordered the conch fritters (yummy) and they are famous for their lobster thermidore. There is often little e entertainment with a singer and/or guitarist. The only problem... More

We decided to go here because nothing else seemed to be open! We tend to visit higher end locations to eat, but we were pleasantly surprised that the food was ok and the prices were decent. The place seems to attract the beer drinking, pool playing type of people. It's not eloquent by any means of the imagination. So in... More

Pete is great, but his staff follow and are extreme providers of great evenings. We had three fabulous nights here and I can't recommend this place highly enough. If you have a bad time here, move on, you will have a crap time wherever you go ! Food was fabulous, service and fun was extreme. A reason to return to... More

Food is good and not too expensive. Nice atmosphere, lots of live music. Kids meals are served on a Pineapple Pete's frisbee, a nice souvenir.

This island theme restaurant came highly recommended to our party of 6. It was one of the first restaurants we visited for dinner. The atmosphere was fun, vibrant, beachy. The waiter was upbeat, cheerful and personable. However, our dinners were sub par and not inexpensive. Would not recommend.

For the last 6 years my extended family has had a New Years Eve party at Pineapple Pete. We have rented a private room and had our own menu. The food is basic. The service is terrific. It's location on airport road is very convenient.
