Great food

Lovely restaurant with a nice view over the sound towards Carrot island. Having an in store bakery makes for some great breads and cakes.

View was great but restaurant was especially loud and food was mediocre. Service was fine, but food came out cold. The shrimp pesto I had I could have made myself better. Bread and dip prior to dinner was good. They had a cute little bar area--- recommend for drinks and view, not necessarily food.

Wonderful restaurant right on water! Great selections of seafood and other foods. Great people with great personalities and just so helpful. Manager always walking by asking us how things were. Desserts were out of this world! A must go!

We go here often and always have great food and great service. You can sit out on the deck for a beautiful dining experience. The staff is always friendly. The food is delicious.

The crab cake was held together with gobs of mayonnaise, as were the potato and pasta salad. The restaurant gets a four rating due to the covered deck by the water. The food gets a two rating, with the final insult being the key lime pie that was topped with cool whip instead of the whipped cream we requested.

A delicious lunch and pudding. Very nice staff. Beautiful view of Beaufort harbour and boats. Ask for an outside table if the weather is fine.

Waiter and service staff was wonderfull taking care of my wife, myself and our two grandsons. The food was great and waterfront seating very nice. The only complaint I could have is with the hostess.

OK Food, a bit pricey, the thing you should know about Beaufort, is nothing is open on a Sunday afternoon. Gift, shops, ice cream shops, or restaurants. This is one of the few places open. The food was good, the wait staff was excellent.
