Turn just south of the Island Shops down the dirt road beside Lowcountry Jewelers and discover a hidden treasure. The “PIT” is famous for outstanding lunch specials made from fresh, local ingredients, killer pizzas and meaty Crab Cakes. Grouper Fingers come with fresh vegetables or fries and slaw. Legendary barbeque, creek-style shrimp salad and soups are homemade and fabulous. Steaks are cooked to perfection, and you’ll find traditional seafood platters, too. Experience affordable dining in a charming shabby-chic setting where kids have their own menu.

The bar offers thirty-plus domestic and imported beers. Entertainment is a PIT strong suit. Thursday through Sunday, bands deliver the best in Bluegrass, Rhythm and Blues, Acoustic, Jazz and Classic Rock. Check out the website for a current schedule. Sign up for emails to keep you posted.  “Home of shrimp, beer and blues,” the PIT showcases a setting you won’t soon forget. Murals feature idyllic Lowcountry scenes. Indoors, in a rustic, barn-like setting, character is everywhere. An open-air patio tucked beneath Live Oaks lures many to perch on stools ‘round the Tiki Bar. Come as you are, straight from the beach or dressed for a night on the town. Don’t miss this classically shabby spot!
