Fodor's Review

This popular, casual, and fun (if slightly touristy) place is well located, with a game room that includes seven pool tables, four dart boards, an arcade, and flat-screen TVs tuned to sports. A friendly, efficient staff will serve you burgers, seafood, and ribs, but for a real treat try one of the specialties like the tasty crab-stuffed shrimp appetizer. Follow it up with succulent, herb-crusted rack of lamb. There's free Wi-Fi and live entertainment Tuesday through Sunday.

It's an easy choice for a bite near the airport, and is open from 11 am through closing. Note the 15% service charge included in the check. There's also a little shop for with T-shirts and local crafts for sale.

Ripped off

We went for a simple lunch and a few cocktails. We heard the place was pretty good. The wait staff was slow and the place was not that busy. When we received the bill I was a bit confused. There was a line at the bottom that said tax and it was crossed out and beside that was written fifteen percent. So I called the guy over and inquired. He told me three percent was a tax and the rest was a service charge. So I asked what is the service charge for?

He was not sure. So I asked if that was gratuity ? He said no. So I believed him and put down a tip anyway. I later inquired at another restaurant and found that Pineapple Pete or there wait staff robbed you. It wasn't a lot of money but it's just the point. And I took the bill to prove it to all. I will never go back there again. So who is the loser.
