Delicious sandwiches, fries, and dessert. It's hard to mess up a grilled cheese with bacon, but this went above and beyond and we SUPER TASTY! The seasoned fries were perfectly crisp on the outside yet soft on the inside. And the dessert was phe-NOM-NOM-NOM-enal!!! Chocolate peanut butter awesomeness.

Stopped in on a Saturday with 7 kids under the age of 7. Servers put up with our nonsense and the food came out fast. My buddy said his burger was good and I had the jerk chicken burrito which was tasty. All in all it was a great spot to start our vacation. I wish I would have found... More

This place used to be awesome. A nice hole in the wall place to catch some good tunes and have a couple beers. While still having the occasional drug problem or fight, it could be overlooked. Now it seems their only focus is underage or "teen" nights, and euro nights. No more is there awesome local, and big name bands... More

Tuesday is the day to go to the PIT!!! Lots of beers and margarita's for only $3 all day. We ordered Nacho's and it was so big and so delicious we couldn't eat dinner after them. The place has a carribean theme and is upstairs. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Prices were too high, food and service was not good. It took forever to get our food. Could never find waitress when we needed her. Food looked but didn't taste good. Will not go back.

This was our fourth year in a row going to The Pit for their Tuesday Taco special. We are a family group of 8, so we know to go early as it can get really crowded. This year it was the first Tuesday in September so maybe most people had gone home after Labor Day and we had our pick... More

This place did have very cheap drinks and was a great alternative to the overly priced and rude Outerbanks Brewing Station. The crowd is very surfer, and the music was pretty weird techno stuff. The women dancing on the stage were especially weird because the guys in the crowd literally came up within inches of them and leered. Kind of... More
