Great place

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... read 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 wife, son, his girl friend and I had a wonderful dinner at the Spouter Inn on the Beaufort Waterfront on a recent Saturday Night. What a fantastic night. Great Martinis, Fresh Seafood, breads and desserts from the restaurants bakery and spot on service. While it was too cool to sit outside on the water on this night, the view... More

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.

I had a shrimp sandwich with cheese, on rye bread with a cup of Gumbo, it was delicious. Had a glass of wine that was a great pour, not a shot glass full......my Husband had the same as I did and both were great. The server was sweet and the service was quick.

Excellent service at this restaurant. The atmosphere is very nice. It's on the water with large windows. They have outside seating and a separate bar area. My husband was not happy with his prime rib which was one of their specials. I had ribs which were very good. I'm sure the seafood is excellent. We just weren't in the mood... More

My wife and I frequent Spouters as often possible when we are in town. On the deck in the Summer is a highlight of our visits. Service is always friendly and efficient. Food is just delicious and portions are just right.

We have been eating at Spouters for years. The food is very good, the people are friendly and the views are of the Beaufort waterfront and Carrot Island. I generally get the "Catch of the Day" which is fresh local seafood. The restaurant business in Beaufort is brutal. I have seen many good restaurants make a go of it there... More
