Alright BBQ. Pork was very overcooked. Advertised as Texas style, more along the lines of Carolina style. Sauce was amazing. Like any other BBQ restaurant in any southern state ... Except you're going to pay twice as much here.

My family and I just returned from a week long stay on SGI and The Beach Pit was our first dining experience there. I ordered the shrimp scampi. What I got was 6 quarter-sized pieces of shrimp over a huge bowl of noodles. Very dry. Zero flavor. My husband ordered the fried grouper dinner, and he was pleased enough with... More

We stayed for a week at SGI. We decided to eat here for a late lunch early dinner. We had a large party of 7 which included kids. Kids menu was great!! My 3yo loves grilled cheese and this was a well done, great tasting sandwich, she ate every bite. The adults were split with half getting seafood and half... More

We ate dinner here one night and carry out breakfast one morning. Both meals were more than satisfactory. They offered BBQ and seafood at dinner and we liked both options. It's certainly not a fancy place but the food was good and reasonably priced. Our servers both times were friendly. If you don't want to drive to Apalachicola, definitely try... More

I was not impressed by the interior of this place, but we sat on the "screened-in porch" and had a great time. It was clean and quiet. The meal was served promptly and everything was really good. It was nice for some of us to have BBQ for a change from seafood, but the seafood was really good as well.... More

We had a very nice dinner without having to leave the island. Good variety... Seafood, burgers, kid meals. Everyone was happy. Grouper sandwich was great.

Trip advisor reviews were good, so we went. And we were not disappointed. The blackened shrimp were fresh, plentiful, and seasoned to perfection. The deviled eggs as a side were also seasoned perfectly. My husband had the BBQ beef brisket sandwich, with a side of baked beans. He really liked his meal. We would go back to this place for...

We ate here twice, once for dinner then again for breakfast. Both time were great. They accommodated us last minute for a party of 11 and dinner was great although they were out of ribs. I got the barbecue (beef and pork) and loved it. You sauce it yourself and everyone else said they loved their food also. Breakfast I... More

If you want white table cloths and a fancy wine list this is not your place. If you enjoy fast, friendly service and good food, I suggest you try this place. They have a kids menu and had our food out to us in under 20 minutes. Atmosphere is your typical beachfront bar and grill. Would go back again.

This is the only option on the island for breakfast, so that's where we ended up. It was late morning, maybe 10 or so, in the middle of the week and there was only one other table occupied - a large group of maybe 2 families, it looked like. Even so, service was very slow. We're on vacation, so not... More
