“The BEST Lobster Thermidor!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014 via mobile

This was our 2nd visit to Pineapple Pete's!!! Our cab driver recommended it to us as we love seafood. The place is a "come as you are" type of place. Very welcoming and friendly. The Lobster Thermidor was out of this world!!! FANTASTIC! Caution: it is HUGE! Two can share easily. Definitely will return on next visit!!!

“mediocre”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

tried it because there were some many good reviews. The dumpling appetizer I had seemed like I could get it from a freezer at the grocery store. My husband had seafood pasta and he hardly ate it. I wanted to go back for the music but won't eat there again

“Will be back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

We really enjoyed everything about Pineapple Pete in Simpson Bay. For starters, they had a kids' menu, which doesn't happen everywhere. The gentleman who take care of us was fantastic... the music was great (we sat close to the stage)... the atmosphere was perfect for a Caribbean vacation... and the food was wonderful. I had the special that evening - the filet with blue cheese sauce - the steak was tender and cooked just like I like it. My husband had the crab-stuffed shrimp - and almost didn't get any as our 13 year old tried to steal it! The 10 year old got to color and order from his own kids' menu. Thankfully, no one was smoking near our table - that is always a concern when we go out. The kids are already planning our next trip to St. Maarten and Pineapple Pete made the list of things we must do again.

“Not what we hoped for...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

Service was slow and disinterested. Food was nothing to rave about...the chicken was pretty moist, but everything else, including the dumplings and ribs, was subpar. The atmosphere was nothing special and was made fairly unpleasant by a smoker sitting closely next to our table. My husband agreed this choice was a miss. Rather disheartening when the meal wasn't exactly cheap.

“VACATION ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014 via mobile

This is a place that we Will return to again and again. Our group went 3 different nights and never had a bad meal. The desserts and drinks were fabulous. We loved the Mango Daiquiris and the B52 was great. Tut ès très bien !
