We dine here frequently. As usual, we enjoyed the corned beef, the steak burgers, and the cod. Only complaint was that the Pit Barbecue Sauce at our table was watery, not the thick and rich sauce we usually have here.

Been going to this restaurant for over 20 years and it still is fantastic. Food is always cooked fresh and very good. Atmosphere is very original with a lot of memorabilia and historical items throughout the restaurant.

Nothing special but decent bbq at a great price. The ribs were ok and slathered in sauce, but very tasty. Sides were fine. Good service and enjoyed our meal.

If you like zesty BBQ and fall off the bone tenderness, the "PIT" is the place to be. Very casual, paper plates, but the service is fast and the hickory smoked meats are great.

The Pit Rib House has mastered the art of barbecue using the finest cuts of meat and then slow cooking them over an open wood pit. The result is a delicious, authentic wood-smoked flavor that guests have come to love. Our world famous ribs are fall-off-the-bone tender and smothered in our sweet and tangy sauce.
