This another place we hit twice during our off season stay (we were on island a week before the season started, choices were limited). I am not even a little embarrassed to say I ate the same thing twice! I had the chicken and waffles, which I think was a special. I have actually considered taking a trip back just... More

Good value, yummy sandwiches and burgers. Sit outside and people watch. Inside is fun, a bit noisy, but happy. Skip the overpriced places, or spend the money on other things. You will be filled up with delicious food at a very good price.

Cool, laid back bar with pretty good food. My husband had their pulled pork sandwich and I ordered the cheese pizza. Both were good. We saw they also do a Sunday brunch but we didn't get to try it. Next time!

After I morning of biking to see the island, my wife and I needed some lunch. We ate on the porch and the service was great. I enjoyed a bowl of chili (very meaty, few beans but tasty) while my wife had chicken quesadillas, we both enjoyed a glass of local brew. The pub is large and the menu is... More

We visited twice in 3 days, both times we sat inside. We would have preferred outside the 2nd time, but it was not available. The inside décor is quite rustic & there were flies, which I guess is hard to avoid being the doors are always open. Now for the important stuff...the food. The BBQ mac & cheese burger was... More

PPP is an affordable place with high quality food. Their sandwiches are consistent and delicious and the specials are always fantastic. The ruben was incredible, probably the best ive ever had and the staff is always exceptional. Also a great spot to go at night for a few drinks and some fun competitions.
