Great views AND great food!

Excellent food, service, and water view with dolphins! Patio dining over the water, great value considering everything. Loved my Parmesan Scallops; hubby raved about the ribs. Parking on street is free. We'll remember this night!

As soon as you step in the door, you will be in a food paradise with the smells of the bakery. My husband and I stopped in for dessert and coffee and we were very pleased. Observing others plates the food look amazing. Great atmosphere, views, and service.

This is one of my favorite places. It's on the water and when the weather is good I highly recommend that you sit on the deck. On more than one occasion we have seen a pod of dolphins. The food is fantastic. Lunch is very reasonable and the dinner entrees have never disappointed! They get fresh bread and desserts from... More

I can't say enough about the staff, service with a smile the food was very fresh and delicious. I always try something different for lunch, you can't go wrong. Dolphins swam by the last we came be boat, yes they have slips for your boat. Pull in and take a sit @ a table or get some take out. Dave

As a local here and picky about all the seafood restaurants? This is great place for a first date out on the deck watching dolphins, while you dine or a place I bring friends from out of town visiting. They all loved it as do I. It can get busy and you may need reservations at times, but well worth... More

Great for a quick lunch. Menu has lots of options for most any taste. Ask for a table near the windows and enjoy the view of Taylor's Creek. Wait staff are efficient and friendly.

We sat out back on the water. Our server was great. Nice sized lunch menu with a lot of sandwiches on homemade bread. Try the steamed shrimp! Kids and adults were happy!

My husband and I really enjoyed our lunch at the Spouter Inn. The crab cakes were delicious! The soup, salad and sandwich were very good. The waitress was friendly and on target with suggestions. Great waterfront seating. We will stop there again the next time we are in Beaufort.
