This is just a pool bar. No business taking reservations on OpenTable. There are so many better options in Newport.

Lovely location and view. Fun vibe. Great service. Very limited menu but the choices are good for families. Quality of food is average. Burger and salad were good. Quesadillas was not great quality and a bit disappointing. Still a fun evening.

Enjoyed the lobster roll and the hot dog. The beyond burger was delicious and would enjoy again. Allison and her assistant, our servers,were very attentive. The View of the bay was lovely and relaxing.

A poolside bar and restaurant area with befitting food not for that, great harbor and bridge view. Definitely recommend it on a nice summer evening at sunset!

Food is served in paper plates and plastic utensils are handed out. That in itself would be ok if you were not being charged standard restaurant prices. Very expensive meal for mediocre food. On top of everything the food took over 1 hour to arrive. The only saving grace for this place is the location and view.

Great experience. Fabulous view. Band was great. A little more loud up close, conversations were way better in the back.

The views at Pineapples are breathtaking. The resort is in the best location in town. As expected, restaurant is overpriced for what they offer. Food was very limited and blah. I had chicken quesadillas that are $22. I am not sure what to say about them. They were ok but the price is ridiculous. Drinks were good and prices are about what you’d expect.
All in all you don’t go for the food. You for the AMAZING view.

Made a reservation for lunch. Have been there before. Looking forward to the food and beautiful location. Went on line to review the Menu. To our surprise the Menu was very very limited. Very disappointed. Basic on the price and reduced options to choose from it certainly was not what we remembered. Maybe it is the times.

Went for dinner with my family of four on a Friday evening. We had a reservation and were seated promptly, but no one came to take our drink order for about 15 minutes. It took another 15 for someone to come and take our food order. Servers were pleasant enough but clearly overworked.. Throughout our dinner, a server attempted to deliver us another table’s food three separate times! There was clearly a lot of confusion and disorganization going on. The food was fine - nothing special and overpriced for what it was - hot dog, salad, etc.... But the biggest issue was how dirty everything was. The tables had not been wiped down, there was a used face mask shoved under my daughter’s seat cushion, and the grounds around us were littered with leftover food, bottles and garbage. The water view was beautiful but the grounds were a mess. The bathrooms by the restaurant were disgusting - had clearly not been cleaned or restocked. Overall, not a pleasant experience and we will not be back.

Best spot in Newport to grab a bite and watch the sunset but their signature pineapple drink is terrible and the name of the place is Pineapples! No pineapple flavor and the pieces of pineapple are old and tired. Need to step it up!

Our reservation was cancelled without any notice. Needless to say, finding a last minute reservation MDW at prime dinner time wasn’t on my list for experiences I was willing to have.

You pay for the ambiance. This is a beautiful location and great spot to watch the sunset. Not worth getting a full meal unless you like overpriced, fried bar food. Cocktails were not good either.

I thought we were going for elegant dinner, didn’t realize pineapple club is more of a Childrens menu ;chicken fingers, hotdogs) & the table smelled like old dirty sponge. Fortunately we went inside & enjoyed delicious dinner at the nicer restaurant but the view we were looking for was at casual pineapple restaurant. They should switch where restaurants are

Amazing venue. It is great to have contactless ordering but would have appreciated a few more menu options and the ability to customize a bit more (no bun with the burger please). Service was outstanding as always!

We were told before booking because of covid precautions there would not be anyone outside the resort on the property except hotel guests - that was absolutely not the case - it was mayhem . The pineapple club has a minimal pool menu at best ( I’ve had more poolside selections at other resorts ) and this is presented as a place to actually make a reservation and eat lunch or dinner ! There is also no connection between the wait staff and the orders . You order and pay thru an app like you are at a theme park . The crowd was boisterous and mostly people not from the resort there to have a drink at sunset - very disappointing overall .

Yes you are seated next to the ocean. But prices are insane and menu options very limited. Served with plastic utensils and on disposable plates and you order on your cell phone. No water in a glass (plastic bottles), no iced tea, no refills. Enough said. Go for an expensive drink and the view and then go to a real restaurant.

Should notify booking that the reservation is casual poolside and not patio or restaurant. Very disappointed.

Best bay view in Newport! The food was very good, but the menu is very limited. I didn't see any vegan or gluten-free options.
Bathrooms are shared with pool guests, they were very dirty.
Free parking.

Having been to the pineapple club before, this visit was a bit underwhelming. While we had arguably the best seat in the house (table 1), it was extremely dark. The menu was also very limited and we were unable to get the signature drink served in a copper pineapple that we had gotten before and really enjoyed. I had also alerted the establishment that this was a special outing as part of a bachelorette weekend: they did not acknowledge the special occasion at all. So, it was a bit disappointing that such a high end establishment could not be bothered to make their guests feel special when they had received a request to do so. I won't be running back to the pineapple club for special occasion meals or experiences in the future. Too bad, because the view cannot be beat.
