This has always been a go to place for out of town guests for work, I would rave about how great the food is and the waiters would always say the motto is "The chef does not want you to leave hungry" well there seems to be a miscommunication there. The last two times the appetizers have been enough for one person to have two pieces, the meal has been a giant plate with hardly a serving, and dessert used to be a giant slice of cake, and now has been made to a child's portion. Smaller sizes are fine, however when you are spending 10 on an appetizer, 20 on an entrée and 10 on dessert, you expect to "leave the restaurant full"

We have lived in New Orleans and were very excited to give Pineapple Eddie’s a try. Wonderful food, spiced with a lighter hand to allow you to taste every note, done to perfection with excellent, knowledgeable, friendly wait staff. Need we say more? We will definitely refer friends and return often.

We have always loved Pineapple Eddies and it was actually my bday . There were several large groups there for a young girl singing that evening that apparently had ordered dinner prior to our small party . We waited 1 1/2 half hours for our dinner and watched another couple actually leave because their food never came out in a timely manner . When my chicken was served it was burnt and greasy which isn’t typical of this restaurant so I was disappointed. When I said something to our server he apologized but never sent a manager over at anytime and we didn’t receive any apologies for waiting so long for dinner . It was disappointing. Although we had this experience I do believe this is a good restaurant that : 1) is short staffed 2) needs to retrain staff on customer service 3) management needs to be involved with customers to ensure that everyone is happy and food is being served! Their food is good but they need someone to manage their floor

Overall a good meal, not great but good. The appetizers were better than the mains, the hush puppies were great as were the pineapple wings. The catfish was middle of the road and my chicken was over cooked and dry. I had a lemon coconut cake that was dried out, possibly a couple of days old.

I think overall they have too many items on the menu and my advice would be to cut the menu in half and have 2 or 3 desserts. The makings of a truly great restaurant are all here.

The restaurant itself needs freshening up, not sure why the walls are painted a dark shade. I loved some of the bright paintings on the wall and I wish they had picked up those colours to make a fresh, bright dining room.

Our server was very friendly but he never offered another drink or coffee.

I can't say enough good things. Service was excellent, food was great. The daily specials, added to their regular menu, made decisions difficult. Nice drink menu with reasonable prices...lots of "wine by the glass" choices.
The bouillabaisse special was as good as it gets and the calamari appetizer was perfectly done.

We are from Pittsburgh and it was my birthday so we wanted to try something different. The atmosphere was nice but our waitress wasn't as attentive as I thought she should be. I asked her for more salad dressing and she only brought my husband salad dressing and I asked for butter for my waffles and butter for my husbands potatoes. She only brought a small amount to my husband, none for me. My drink was too strong and the desserts looked old and dry. My chicken tasted like it was fried in old grease.

The specials are always the best part! The drinks and appetizers were fantastic, and the dessert case is beautiful. They accommodated us adding an extra person to our party. The staff is friendly, the food takes a little longer to prepare but it definitely worth the wait!

This restaurant is a strange mix of budget and fine dining. They put out white tablecloths but then serve your condiments in disposable plastic cups you'd find at a fast food restaurant. They serve you a nice house salad but the tomatoes on the salad are sliced as if they were meant for a burger.

Great atmosphere, great service, wait staff very knowledgeable, the food was ok, overpriced for a stuffed pork chop that didn't have any stuffing...very dry and tough. The cocktails were also very good. Would recommend for a romantic evening but don't go off of the menu.

Every employee I interacted with was great, from the host to the bartender to the chef. I enjoyed the griyo with rice and beans, seasonal veggies and an additional side of Mac n cheese. I also got the hush puppies which were perfect and the chocolate cake with banana frosting.

Food is always great but service was really really slow. Maybe just understaffed for the night but 15 minutes to even recognize us at our table, another 15 to get our drinks once ordered. Flavors in the food were very nice and I love all the special options.

Absolutely my favorite restaurant. When it's my turn to choose it's always Shrimp and Grits at Pineapple Eddie's. One of the best things to happen to Erie.

The night we were there the Musical combo, Mambo, was playing - their sound was amazing and the volume not too much. Service was great - we were in the cozy barroom - we will return.

Pineapple Eddies NEVER disappoints. I've been numerous times and will be going back again and again. The owners are on hand and very friendly, the staff is helpful and friendly, the atmosphere is cozy and the food is delicious.
It is a gem of a place and I am afraid that once the secret gets out about how good they are, I might not be able to get a table.

Have enjoyed dining at Pineapple Eddies many times & have not been disappointed. I made reservations on-line on our recent visit. When we arrived, they had no record of our reservation. They were accommodating even though the restaurant was very busy. Will return when in Erie, but will call!! Good food, good service & good people!!
