Great service, nice menu!

We recently visited the beach pit, our first time to St. George Island. Our server Ashley was terrific, very responsive and treated us as if we've been coming there for years. We will definitely return. I do ask that they add streamed shrimp to the menu!....pretty please! 😄

This a a good place to eat. We had breakfast and the food was good, the service was fast and the staff was great. They handle a lot of people during the summer and make everyone feel special. Will be back.

From the poor service to the poor food, our dinner visit was a total miss. The crab legs were overcooks, the pasta was bland and the bbq was fatty and dry. Just getting a refill of drinks was difficult and took a long time. I will focus on one dish-the bbq. My wife and I got the brisket and I... More

Ate here on the 4th, because the Blue Parrot had a HUGE line,.. REALLY glad we came here instead. Sat outside in anticipation of the fireworks- Kind of muggy, even at night, but they have fans out there, and there seems to keep a constant breeze. Plus there was a little yard beside the screened in part that the kid... More

We vacation at SGI regularly. We "discovered" The Beach Pit about 3 years ago. The food is very good and the wait to get seated is usually short. The food service is not always very fast, but the wait staff is friendly and the food is good. We usually have dinner here twice during our weeks vacation. The menu offers... More

We ate here one night on our beach vacation to St George Island. We had great service. The food was excellent. I had the seafood platter. We spent less than $100 for a family of five, which is better than you expect at a vacation venue.

We ate breakfast and supper here. The breakfast was ok. For four, it cost us $22. The supper was ok as well. It was a little pricey, around $55. Service was good.

Restaurant was on the warm side. AC not working very well. We all had separate checks but as we were a party of 6, we were each charged a mandatory 18% gratuity on each separate bill. Food and service was good.

We ate here twice during our week on the island. One time I had barbeque and the other blackened shrimp. Both were good, perhaps not great but tasty and a generous amount. We had kids with us and they were very accommodating and the kids liked their "kids meal". My wife loves smoked mullet and they were out, coincidentally they... More
