“Ok food, ambiance seems nice, but the wait staff will rip you off.”
Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

We decided to go to pineapple petes one night of our 6 nights on st maarten. We saw all the horrible reviews but thought we would go because the ambiance seemed fun. We ordered the hamburger and jerked chicken wrap, and it was decent. We were asked if we wanted water and was brought a big bottle of water in a champagne bucket, that's when I should have known there was going to be something wrong. When the bill came for our two ten dollar entrees it was 32 dollars. 6 dollars for two glasses of water, and then 4 dollars for taxes. When asked about the tax, I was told it was 3 percent for tax and 15 percent tip. Besides the fact that the math doesn't add up, adding your own tip is just shady, on top of that, we found out there is no tax for food on st maarten . Never will go back. They are just trying to rip you off

“Love it!!!!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We could eat there everyday! The staff is friendly and the food is delicious...so are the frozen mojitos!:) Just an FYI; they do add 15% no matter what size of your party is and we didn't realize that and double tipped. Wasn't a huge deal since we caught it before going back again but it's something you should be aware of. Since we have kids it's great that they are family friendly. We enjoy it each time!:)

“Just okay”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

The menu here is large, so that is a bonus...unfortunately I wasn't overly impressed with the food. The flavor was lacking overall and I left disappointed. The atmosphere is nice however, and there was live music while we dined.

“Good times, good food!”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

After several recommendations from locals we went to Pineapple Pete's for dinner. The atmosphere is super laid back, island feel. Live music every night. The food was good, huge menu. Service was a little slow in regard to getting drinks but not horrible and server was always busy with other tables... I would go back.
