It's one of the places for which all the hotels will give you discount vouchers. So you should probably not expect it to be quiet or full of locals. That way you won't be disappointed. Food was good, plentiful and served quite quickly. It was every good value and, had we been with a larger group we'd probably have gone... More

We always go here as the food is fresh & made when you order it so you need to be patient but it is delicious. The staff is friendly & courteous.

Very touristy, but decent food and good service. We ate here twice--once for lunch, once for dinner. Moderately expensive. Credit accepted without hassle.

Pete's is located in the "hallway" between two other "Pete" buildings. It is a great place to stop for a "last lunch" before leaving the island. Dinner is fun and relaxing...sometimes with live music. We tried it the night of the Super Bowl and then looked out at the water, a full moon and the yachts before returning to "super... More

This restaurant is very nice, has live entertainment(guitar player that was my favorite compared to other restaurants in the area). Great vibe and food is very good. We loved the bartender on the side bar, friendly and fun and made great drinks. The staff friendly and accommodating. We had dinner twice during our stay.

Having been to both the main restaurant at Pineapple Pete's and the SPN Sports Bar, with both my husband and with friends, the food is always delicious and the service is great. Priced reasonably for the island, but well worth it, whether for lunch, dinner, or drinks and late night snacks.

This is always a must for us when on the rock. Great lobster Thermador, friendly service and peaceful entertainment. Unfortunately I cannot comment on any of the other food because I can never pass up the Thermador.
