Our customers tell us they can’t decide which they like better, our hand-pulled BBQ or the spectacular view of the Susquehanna River. We think you’ll love both.
Skeeter’s Pit BBQ has been serving the Susquehanna Valley since July 2005, earning a loyal customer base and making new friends almost every day. We pride ourselves on the quality of our meals – from our Signature Ribs to our Famous Pulled-Pork Barbeque, Chicken, and Brisket – or if you can’t decide, try a combo. For lighter fare we offer Wraps and Sandwiches with pulled pork, pulled chicken and brisket – veggie too. A bit of finger food can get you started, and our salads feature our pork, beef and brisket as well. Of course, you may want to add a side of Fries, Beans, Corn Muffin or Cole Slaw. We have a Kid’s Menu too.
Enjoy your meal with a beverage, a glass of wine, or beer (by the glass or the pitcher).
And, save some room for dessert. Skeeter has a sweet tooth, but can never make up his mind. Our dessert menu is always changing.
Take Out is also available. (Call ahead for fast pick up.)
And then there’s the view! Located on the bluff overlooking the Susquehanna River at the intersection of Routes 11 and 15 in Shamokin Dam, the sights are nothing less than spectacular – in all seasons. Owner and Founder John Skotedis describes Skeeter’s Pit BBQ as “like dining in a treehouse!”
The Skotedis family has been in the restaurant business in the Susquehanna Valley for over 50 years. Skeeter’s Pit BBQ was created to offer an affordable dining experience with the highest quality food in a friendly, casual atmosphere. We hand-pull our pork, beef and chicken – no machines. Watch your ribs and BBQ as they come out of our smokers. Place your order at the counter and it may well be at your table within minutes after you get your drinks and sit down.
Then enjoy the view and your meal.
