First stop for lunch on a day trip to PIB. Excellent drinks and sandwiches. Great views of the water and for people watching if seating on the patio out front.

Stop there for phenomenal Brandy Alexanders anytime. They had a little trouble keeping up with demand during the super heat this past summer. All is well now. And their food is also very good.

This has to be my favorite place to eat on South Bass Island. I go there every time I visit. The food is great. I have enjoyed everything I have tried there but the Cubans are by far my favorite. I did take a picture but after I had eaten half my food. It was too good to wait!
