Returned for the second time during our vacation- two years later and loved experience even more. Great food and ambience. Eight of us dined outside and everyone loved their meals . Everyone had the crab/corn chowder and individuals had various salads and entrees including shrimp, crab cakes, filet mignon! Only wish we lived closer to visit more frequently.

Only had dessert here, but the waterfront views - especially near sunset - were fantastic (as was the dessert). Wish we had chosen The Spouter Inn for dinner as well, the menu looked great.

My family and I have been visiting Spouter Inn for 7 years on our family vacation and we have looked forward to visiting every time but not anymore. There were several things that weren't good. No fresh catch of the day. No bread, for a restuarant that is on the pricier side we should have gotten bread. We didn't know... More

We are visiting in Atlantic Beach this week and decided to check out The Spouter Inn while taking a look around Beaufort. We were a party of four... 2 adults and 2 children. We sat on the deck and found it to be comfortable. The only complaint we had was the trash that was blowing around with a small portion... More

This restaurant is tacked in away from the crowd and street noise. Offers indoor (lots of shade) and outdoor seating. The staff of very courteous and the food is good. Bowl of clam chowder soup $6.50. On front of the restaurant is the incredible bakery. The best part is the view!!!!

The food was good, but not a large quantity for the price. However, the bakery which you pass on the way in, had incredible pastries. We had one regret - that we didn't buy more of them!

Great view and consistently good food. I personally think they under season the food which would improve flavors but the food is solid and the service, wait staff and drinks make up for seasoning. I understand they are probably thinking healthy but you can still work on seasonings. We always go back

For whatever reason, finding a top-rated restaurant that is open for lunch on a Saturday in the tourist town of Beaufort is a difficult thing! My friend and I had our eyes on one of the top-three rated restaurants, but none of them were open during the high tourist season. Nonetheless, we used our TripAdvisor app. To find that the... More
