Wife and I just bought a house with a sweet island:
Problem is, there's a length of it that's about 5'5" between two legs that is unsupported in the middle (the part with the chairs beneath it).
As you can see in the photo below, there are two metal bars running the length of it, but they have started to sag and are no longer supporting the granite. I've been advised to shove some shims in there, but I think it'll just end up bending the metal beams further and not actually help.
1. Is this a real issue for the granite? (Since its supported on either side anyway)?
2. If yes to #1, what should I do about it?
Thanks to anyone reading.

WOuldnt be a bad idea to have cabinets framed in on one side. You will loose one side and not have foot room but it will solve your prob. Adds support and utilizes all that space while still leaving room for your feet on rhe other side?
Disclaimer. I am not it the countertop or cabinet business. This is a simple, uneducated suggestion from a ingenuitive mind.
