Great Place

This place has great food and a fab. view. This is the place to go in Beaufort. Parking is a problem sometime but is worth the wait to find one. Employees are wonderful, We really miss Maryann, but still have some wonderful people working there.

The desserts are wonderful -my favorites are the key lime pie, the peanut butter pie, and the french silk. The art is interest. The food is delicious. The view from outside is possibly the best in Beaufort. I would definitely go here. I've had the brunch, which was also delicious. I always bring family here when they visit.

We love the covered outdoor seating facing the water. The Spouter serves lunch and dinner and has an onsite bakery for delicious desserts. They do close for the winter in January and part of February so call before visiting.

We were attracted in by their specials listed outside and their menu. We went inside and were told it would be a 10 minute wait. The wait took 35 minutes. Once we were at our table we were given a menu and told the restaurant was closing for the season soon and they were out of ALL seafood, pastas and... More

This place is wonderful. We went for Sunday Brunch. Eggs Benedict done to perfection. Mimosas, after noon, of course. We had super, fun service. And --- at the end of November --- sunshine! What a deal.

Got the seafood omelette with cheese grits. I can't even begin to describe how delicious it was. We frequent Spouters often, but this was our first brunch. Service is always friendly and fast. Love this place!!!

we were there in the off season....3 occupied tables including ours. yet we waited over 30 min. for our food and it came warm....certainly not hot and fresh out of the kitchen. I ordered the mixed seafood plate ($27.50) and my wife had the house salad with a grilled mahi-mahi on top. Both of these were excellent...but why did it... More
