“Bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

This is a dive hidden down a private lane off rt. 17. Great burgers, sinful fries and good beer selection. Great place to eat after golf. Recommended.

“Unique, Cool LowCountry Atmosphere, Somewhat Pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Low Country Ramshackle best describes the PIT. The food is good, not great. The music is generally very good. In short it is a neat place that we highly recommend.

“Our favorite dive place in Pawleys!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

The PIT is just a simple dive with great food and beer. Its a little rustic, but exactly what you'd expect. The food is always prepared fresh and better than expected.

“Locals call it The Pit, but its better than that!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

This local hang-out is set way back, hidden off Highway 17, but find it for really quality bar type food. Pizza was tasty, crab cakes were filled with crab and not too much filler. Peel & Eat shrimp were good sized and excellent. There are lights hung all around the patio and live music on the week ends. The hamburgers got rave reviews too. This place is not a pit, so definitely give it a try. Kids menu too. The "wallpaper" was very unique too.

“Best bar in the WORLD!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

It is hard to find, but you will come back a million times. Best live bands and drinks you will find anywhere.
