Awful bbq. The “baby backs” were NOT baby backs . Big as St. Louis style , fatty and tough. Really good fries though. Nice waitress it’s a shame was really looking forward to a nice new place. Been coming to St George for 20 years...but I won’t be back at the Beach Pit.More

While visiting SGI with friends, my husband and I decided to go to The Beach Pit for breakfast. It was pretty good, not great. Food was warm, but not hot. We both had the two egg plate with sausage. Plate included two scrambled eggs, one...sausage patty and one piece of toast. Husband also ordered orange juice. I would estimate the glass at 12 ounces and it was $5. Several jelly selections were on the table. Service was friendly and very fast. We thought the food was probably already prepared and in warmers. Everything considered, we would return to The Beach Pit for breakfast.More

I tried the barbecue pork at this location and we also had breakfast with the family. Everything was pretty good. A little high-priced. I guess that's what happens when you get to take advantage of people on the island. The barbecue was expensive the breakfast...was fair priced. But other than that this place had pretty good food.More

We stopped in to have breakfast here. I had the French toast and it was amazing. The cream and whipped topping were just excellent. The staff was very nice and friendly. Definitely planning to stop in for lunch or dinner.

We ordered various seafood meals, food was just ok. Our waitress disappeared after our food arrived and we had to go to register to get our checks. Would not go back-too expensive for the quality of food.

To be fair, there is a nationwide stag shortage right now and they even have a sign right inside as soon as you walk in talking about the staff shortage. So, I understand the staff shortage. We came here at the beginning of our vacation...for dinner. The food was fairly good and we sat outside on the picnic tables in the shade watching the seagulls out on the lawn while eating. Dinner was a fairly good experience. Nothing superbly over-the-top awesome. Then, we went there for breakfast on our last morning during the breakfast. The food was mediocre in terms of quality. Also, there was something wrong with their tea kettles so the waitress brought more hot water for our tea in a coffee mug and poured it directly into our tea cups (which already had tea in them) and spilled some of the water on the table. But, our waitress was nice to us and the atmosphere was nice for breakfast.More

We ate dinner and breakfast during our visit this week. Both were delicious. Dinner we had the BBQ pork and brisket sandwiches and both were great. Coleslaw, Onion rings and Brunswick stew were equally as good. We stopped for breakfast on our way out of...town and it was very good. Eggs, hash browns, pancakes and bacon were all delicious. FYI - I think it is the only place to eat a full breakfast. Staff was very friendly during both visits. We will visit again on our next trip to the island.More

We have eaten here often, for all meals. Breakfasts are fast and not pricey...mostly good. Likewise, lunch and dinner with way too much fried stuff but they can also grill. Dark inside and the outside covered patio is shaded except in the AM so no...sunny meals here. With some great exceptions, the serving staff is very average. Salads are generally good but not superb (since no eating experiences on SGI are superb). We will go there again but, as always, will order carefully. Drinks are usually good and generous. Apparently the same ownership of The Beach Pit and Mango Mikes, which we did not enjoy and will not likely revisit.More

Great breakfast, friendly and prompt service! The grits were served piping hot and were exactly the right consistency. Highly recommend getting a biscuit, I had a biscuit with sausage and egg. The omelette my daughter ordered (meat lovers) was cooked perfectly.

Stopped in for a late lunch first time on SGI. We sat outside all by ourselves and split a grouper sandwich with cole slaw and baked beans. All the food was terrific and our waitress was spot on - cheerful and fun. Refilled my Diet...Coke several times and didn't seem to mind our being the only ones outside or splitting an entree. Very pleasant experience.More
