“Good food and good times”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

We come to the island with family and friends every Ground hog Day and always stop here for food and drinks. The food is great, something for all ages. The atmosphere is also great.

“Year Round Enthusiast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

PPP offers something for everyone - my favorite is their amazing Veggie Burger... moist, flavorful and super generous. My carnivorous husband goes for the pulled pork or one of the juicy beef specials. A relaxed and friendly, down-to-earth atmosphere. Big tables accommodate big families or celebratory friends but you won't feel wierd eating at the bar solo; a few small tables where couples can tuck away off to the side; late hours for the party crowd. As a year round resident, I appreciate Poor Peoples during every season with friends, my husband and by myself.

“something for everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

This is the go to place for solid pub fare from a great chef and staff. I've been going since it opened and you can choose from a eclectic seafood or meat entre or go for the always delicious poor burger. It's great to go for a quick lunch or to bring kids and hang out and sit outside. And it's a great place to go and watch a game on the tv's. The staff is the best there is and I eat there more than any other place.

“On of the only places open”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

The beer was good, decent prices, food was as well. It was one of the only places open on the island during the offseason.
