Have been to this restaurant in the past for great breakfasts only, but decided to try their barbecue on this trip too. I had the pulled pork, beef brisket barbecue plate with Brunswick stew, Southern pot salad. My lady had the baby back ribs with onion rings and coleslaw. We were genuinely pleased ,and now know why they call it... More

Food was fantastic - BBQ chicken, chef salad, and shrimp po boy. Prices were great, including the BBQ by the pound. Wait staff was great and very hard working. Will have to remember to sit outside next time.

Stopped for a late lunch. We were one of only two tables occupied so our order didn't take long. Server Magen was very friendly and accommodating. Even brought out a small bowl of water for our fur baby (small pets allowed on covered patio). Restaurant and patio were clean, as were restrooms. Food was tasty without being pretentious. Great fries,... More

My mother had eggs, bacon and toast. It was ok but she wondered why she only had one piece of toast and no butter. It was a $4 breakfast so it was ok! I had pancakes and bacon. The pancakes were good in texture but they had a bitter or sour taste. I really don't know what was going on... More

We ate breakfast here twice. The waitresses were friendly and the service fast. You have to try the shrimp or oyster omelet! The hashbrowns were very good.

It was almost closing time on Tues. night when 4 of us stopped here. We had planned to go across road, but that was closed, so pulled into the Beach Pit. Glad we did. The waitress was very friendly and patient with us even though we probably took too long a time perusing the drink and food menu. Everyone liked... More

And the food was so awsome. The macaroni and cheese, your going to want a bigger plate for! The owner is a... More

My stomach was a little upset so instead of the BBQ I craved, chose the turkey sandwich with fried okra, both were "just right" the okra was a real treat as it's not available where I live in Mexico. It took two tries to finish this complete treat. A real treat. Betty Allen
