The once great place to eat every day meals is now an event space only. Every one was nice and helpful as I took a tour of the room for my dad's 85th birthday party. It's a great space to turn into anything you envision for your event.

Excellent service and atmosphere- our waiter was amazing . Got in after a baseball game- about 30 minutes before closing and the staff was amazing and the food was delicious! The sampler appetizer was great!

We "Googled" good BBQ in Durham. The Pit popped up. We drove to "the warehouse district" and discovered a really cool area of Durham that we didn't know existed. WOW. This whole area is being redone and there are some treasures there. Food, drinks, entertainment, you'll find it all there. The Pit did NOT disappoint. I read through some of the reviews. I disagree with all of the critiques on the food and the service. The place was for sure understaffed but why is that their fault? They are not unlike any other business in America right now. (That's what happens when you pay people to sit on their couch at home.) Ike! Ike is total professional. We loved this guy's way. Cool, calm, helpful, cheerful, professional. He made the experience for us. Thad was our server and he couldn't have been nicer either. If those two men are the face of the staff that The Pit, you will always in good hands. The food was fantastic. The beer was amazing too. We sampled some local brew. My wife enjoyed a pint of "Waffles and Syrup Beet" and it was truly amazing! WOW. You can't go wrong with this place. Reasonably priced. Clean. Nice atmosphere. You could do some day drinking in the district and cap it off with some fantastic BBQ. Thank you all.

We had Sunday lunch and it was amazing. Ike was friendly, informative and funny. All the meats were good. The biscuits and cornbread were the best I've ever had. The Carolina sauce was tangy and delicious. This place will become a regular visit for me. Kid friendly. Amazing banana pudding.
