Have visited this nicely located spot several times as we waited for ferries from time to time. This past week, we decided to have lunch. Unfortunately, we were not all that impressed, at least as we have been in the past. The service is OK though the waitress made us move our bags from an adjoining table and stack them... More

We ordered off the menu - fried red snapper and it was over cooked and over priced. rest of the sides were average too. The only good thing was a view..

We had the pleasure of eating here twice during our last trip to the BVI; Their menu has a nice variety for breakfast, lunch or dinner, with the added bonus of sitting on the deck outside watching all the activity in the harbor. Service is a little bit "island time", but we were just waiting for a ferry anyway -... More

My husband and I ate here while waiting for our sea plane flight. The food was OK but make sure you ask the prices for the local specialties before you order. My husband's chicken dish was $14 and my fish was $29! More than twice the price - really? I understand fish costing a few dollars more but more than... More

The Petite Pump Room is always a repeat stop on our trips to St. Thomas. I usually visit several times a year with friends, and we are always impressed with how delicious the Local Food and Tropical Drinks are. Mary and Martha always provide efficient service with warm smiles. Please be sure to try Mike's famous Painkillers and the Kallalloo... More

We stopped here on the way back to the airport from our stay in St. John. Just wanted something not too far off our route and--preferably--something right on the water. This was just what we wanted. Our food was fresh and the view overlooking the bay was outstanding. Parking can be a bit of a struggle.

After my flight got delayed had time to kill before returning to the airport. My boyfriend (who is a local) decided to take me to Petite Pump for breakfast. The service was fast and the food was awesome. The outdoor view was also amazing. I can definitely see myself going back.

Get and outside table looking over the bay. Its a mad house when all the ferries are in. Drop your bags with your ferry company and head upstairs to have a beer or a salad or apps.

Thank you so much for stopping by. We look forward to seeing you on your return from the BVI to get your last "painkiller" before heading back home. :) Try the freshly made conch fritters. They are great!!! More

It seems nice, and the food was OK. But the server messed up my drink order, then begged me to take the one incorrect drink anyway, I did (relaxed after 2 weeks chill time). Then, while serving the people at the table on the side of us, he spilled one drink, and dropped another one that ended up all over... More

I am sorry to hear that you did not have a good experience. I am a little confused because we don't have any male servers. I hope that you are able to stop by so that we can provide you with a positive memorable experience. More
