Before 1972 the property was a Marina and Fish house. In 1972 Pat and Betty Ann Ricks opened Blue Petes. It was a small place with seats for about twenty people, a bar, country music, fish bait, beer, Pool table, sandwiches and a beautiful setting right on Tabernacle Creek. The restaurant has grown over the years. Its goal still is to provide a variety of good, fresh seafood and great Certified Angus Beef in a friendly and homey atmosphere.

Today the restaurant is owned by twin brothers Nicholas and Aristotle. They were born and raised in the Back Bay area. Growing up they became avid hunters, fishermen and outdoorsmen. Their love for this area, good people, great food, and the country lifestyle is what has inspired them to acquire Blue Petes and provide a place for locals to come together and enjoy themselves.

"Blue Pete" is another name for a bird commonly known as a "coot". At one time Back Bay and the surrounding ponds in Pungo were filled with these Birds and also many other species of ducks and geese. Tabernacle Creek, which runs behind the Restaurant, and Back Bay were some of the greatest freshwater fishing and hunting grounds in the country. People came from all over the United States to hunt and fish these waters.
