We had a great seat overlooking the harbor to start our morning (great breakfast, not many breakfast options). Prices were the best value on the island! If you are looking to save some money on your trip this stop is very affordable with a great view and friendly staff. Bar like atmosphere which was fine since breakfast ranged from $6-$13... More

Have eaten here several times while waiting for the ferry. Always a good snack or meal. Service can seem a little slow at times but that's usually when I'm in a hurry so I'm sure it's just my personal impression. Drinks are good. For a nice view of harbor activity including seaplanes taking off and landing sit on the porch... More

We stayed on St. Thomas for a week and ate at as many different restaurants as possible during the week. St Thomas is an expensive place to eat out and The Petite Pump Room is very competitive. Being right on the water the breeze and view were great. If you like spicy, ask for their house hot sauce for your... More

We were waiting for a ferry so figured it'd be easiest just to eat at the Petite Pump Room upstairs. Based on the location, we were expecting mediocrity at best. We were very pleased with the Blackened Mahi Mahi Wrap we split. There is a great view of the water & the waitstaff were friendly and helpful.

I'm often on st. Thomas traveling on seaplane so this restaurant is in close vicinity. Tried it for lunch. Server was very rushed. Burger over cooked. My drink was never refilled. When you look around the place decor is old and not updated. Paint rubbed off the metal chairs. Other than nice view I'm not impressed. It feels as no... More

From the get go you will feel like you've come home when you walk past the bar and out to the patio overlooking the water and port authority. If you want great food with some local flair followed up by an amazing bushwhacker or painkiller this is the place! Also, watch for the resident barracuda swimming below waiting for food... More

Highly recommended to stop off when you arrive on the ferry or are about to depart. Great view and very welcoming staff. Shame the breakfast stops at 10.30 and there is no cappuccino machine. Had a good BLT sandwich with fries. Recommended.

Had a delicious breakfast while waiting for our seaplane departure to St Croix. The food and drinks are made with love, no cutting corners. They go the extra mile!
