Great crepes!

We went for breakfast and it was great. Most small places don't do crepes so I was happy to see them on the menu! They were fantastic!

The outdoor screened patio was nice and dog-friendly. Our server was nice and took good care of us. Our bloody Marys were tasty, a little spicy, no garnish. But the food? I'm sorry to say it was pretty bad. My over medium egg was cooked perfectly but the rest was worse than an old school breakfast. I ordered sausage gravy... More

My sister and I went to Harry A's the night before and I wish we had just came to the Beach Pit first! Unlike having a drunk waiter trying to flirt with us the night before, we had professional grade and friendly service from the ladies here. The food was great and fairly priced for a place on the beach.... More

We go to St George every year for a week long vacation and tried The Beach Pit for the first time this year. Top notch barbecue and fried seafood. My husband loved their brisket and I really liked their fried oysters. Really good breakfast too, especially their hash browns with onions. Friendly wait staff and super duper clean. A great...

After searching around for a little bit, we stumbled into the parking lot. With breakfast on our minds we entered and was promptly seated. Our waitress' name was Dawn and she did a nice job with a smile on her face (even with the rude folks a table over). The breakfast menu was priced just as you'd find in a... More

We head good reviews. So we decided to try it. No cars in the lot ever. We walk in wait for 10 minutes. We left. No one came out to seat us. We walked around the place.

this restaurant is not physically on the beach but close to virtually everything St. George has to offer. It's a good combination of menu items and the value is decent. Service is a bit slow.

We were the first people in for dinner at about 5 pm. Had a dozen raw oysters that were perfect, then BBQ sausage with fried okra a Brunswick stew. Son had pulled pork and chicken, father-in-law had pulled beef with fries and my wife had pulled pork with southern potato salad and baked beans. Everything was very good as well... More

Had the pork with 2 sides...husband had the beef sandwich. Both good. Fried okra was pretty greasy, but the baked beans were good. Would go back.

The breakfast was a perfect amount on our plate. It was great to leave the restaurant feeling not too full, but just right and ready for another wonderful relaxing day on the island.
