Please don't pass this place by if you're visiting Beaufort!! It's easy to miss, but DON'T MISS IT!! The food was amazing, I had the blackened mahi special, and we literally came back again the next day to get it again! My husband had a burger and he said it was probably the best one he's ever had! The next... More

We had the ribs and the crab cakes- both were great. Great atmosphere here and we love sitting outside on the water. I would definitely come back here next time we visit this great little town.

We (three of us) just dropped in without a reservation on a Sat in mid September. We were seated graciously and immediately on their lovely open porch room on the water. Unbeatable view and perfect weather. Appetizers (Mahi bites and Shrimp/grits) were to die for! Cocktails were quite good and different enough to be fun. Entree's were great but not... More

This restaurant was walking distance from our bed and breakfast, Old Seaport Inn, We enjoyed a lovely window table overlooking the sea and a great meal. Our server was sweet and engaged us in conversation. We would go back.

Really nice staff and service, Food was good but not fantastic. Atmosphere was great and restaurant décor was great but the food was just good. I had the shrimp and grits. They were excellent.. my mother had ribs that were tender and flavorful. My brother ate the scallops in parmesan sauce, rice and steamed vegetables. He raved about the scallops... More

First time in Beaufort....what a beautiful little town! Finished our visit with dinner on the deck here. It was so nice with beautiful views & a nice breeze! My husband had the grouper and I had chicken. Both were delicious!

We were in Beaufort for a week and had two opportunities to dine at The Spouter Inn. On Saturday of Labor Day we managed to get a table for four on short notice and ordered dinner and drinks in the bright and cheery dining room. Enjoyed a seafood combination and the local fish special - as well as some delicious... More

Really great service and really nice staff, but I don't understand the other positive reviews about the food. The food we had was very mediocre to bad other than the desserts - they were good. The crab cakes were average and were served with a basic white rice with no flavor, and over cooked vegetables, also with no flavor. It's... More

We have loved many things about NC since moving here from Maryland 20 years ago...but the crabcakes here are usually a big disappointment. My husband raved about the crabcake that he ordered when we visited this restaurant. Finally, one that is actually make with almost all crab instead of so much filler! I, myself, am now a vegetarian. Though I... More

Thank you Catharine for the nice review! Maryland knows CRABS & CRAB CAKES! We brought this recipe with us from Maryland in 1982. We are known for our great crab cakes with little filler and NOT fried! The southern style, with green pepper, lots of filler and deep fried is just NOT as good as Maryland style! Glad to hear...

Our party was unsure of where to go to get a good seafood dinner while vacationing in EI. We googled restaurants in Beaufort and narrowed it down to two. The other was our first choice however it turned out they were not open.....LUCKY for us! We couldn't have done better. In addition to the beautiful location, the food was fantastic.... More
