The pros: - Views of the water are great - Food is fresh - Clean and well decorated interior - Well stocked bar - Soups are delicious The cons: - Basically a soup, salad and sandwich shop. If you're looking for seafood platers, look elsewhere. - At 12:15PM on a Monday, it took 50 minutes for two sandwiches, a shrimp... More

Shrimp and grits are fabulous but so was the Mahi Mahi au gratin! Nice views and service has been consistently good. This has become a favorite dining experience when we are in Beaufort! Will not disappoint.

We had dinner here on the outdoor deck. The weather was perfect and the views wonderful. We watched the dolphins swimming out to the ocean. Service was very good and the staff attentive. I had a grouper dish which was on the special - it was a bit undercooked but the waitress told the manager and she came and made... More

This restaurant is located at the west end of Front Street with tables out over the water. On a nice day, it's a great place to eat and watch the activities along the waterfront. The food is very good and the ambiance is really nice. It can be a bit noisy inside sometimes, so try and get a seat outside.

Great service, beautiful view (with outdoor seating by the water available), and a great menu that has something for everyone. Everything was delicious and fresh. This is our new favorite in Beaufort. We will definitely be back.

We sat on the porch/deck for lunch. It was hot, but there was a nice breeze and the view is wonderful. Lunch was terrific, especially the shrimp salad -- the shrimp were very fresh and perfectly cooked. Service is casual and friendly.

We popped in here for lunch . . . great waterfront view whether you're inside or out. Had the linguini with sea scallops, shrimp and red clam sauce and it was excellent! Great service too. Highly recommended. My sister had a bloody mary and said it was great too. We'll definitely go back!

My husband and I visited Beaufort for my birthday. I adore seafood, especially crab. I ordered the crab cakes for dinner, and may I say, they were the best I have ever eaten. I have been to a lot of nice coastal restaurants, and this one can't be beat. Great food, great service.....we will be back!

My husband and I recently visited the North Carolina coast and stopped by here to have dinner. It was a week day so it wasn't super busy so we got an awesome table on the porch looking out at the water. The view was spectacular. Our waitress was good and the food was pretty tasty. I would recommend this place... More

This is a pleasant place to sit on the deck and enjoy your lunch. The food was very good. I enjoyed the seafood gumbo and Out Island sandwich (shrimp, mushroom, cheese). My wife and kids enjoyed their salads, burgers, and club sandwiches. The dessert tray was excellent. I had a very good carrot cake with cream icing and the chocolate... More
