We go here for breakfast every morning when we are on the island. Have never tried other places for breakfast because the pit has everything we could want. Have eaten dinner here also. Ribs, shrimp, everything is amazing. Staff has always been great.

I think this place is often overlooked because it's understated. They're a quiet refuge from the screaming trivia at Doc Myers and the boisterous music from Harry A's. In other words, a perfect respite for me! They're also the only place to get breakfast on...More
