Stopped in for a guick lunch and had one of our best lunches of our trip. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was great. Just be hungry when you go here because the portions are big. Always a plus with us. Going back tonight for dinner before we leave in the morning. Great service too. :-)

We ate here twice during our holiday. The menu is extensive and the food was fabulous! I recommend the Full Rack of Ribs, you won't need a starter. Delicious cocktails list too. Pete (Pierre) is on-site and visits the tables to welcome and chat to diners. There is a gift shop nearby and Pete's Harley parked outside to admire.

We frequent this restaurant every year...never miss it. The food is excellent, the restaurant eclectic and family friendly. It is semi outdoors giving you the real island feel and the prople are very friendly. It's a happening.

We have eaten here for years. The Lobster Thermador is the best on the island. The service is always great. It is usually packed so reservations are suggested.

I just went there with my wife. The food was delicious, served fast, good quality. The chicken wings were great. We tried the ones at Buffalo Wings, but the ones at Pineaple Pete are better. Certainly the best. The servers were very friendly and always paying attention of what you need. See you soon!!

Enjoyed dinner here; walking distance from our place to stay ( Villas at Simpson Bay) - atmosphere nice, servers friendly - you can't really see the water from the seats; it would be nice to sit out on patio near the marina. Really enjoyed it though.
