We stopped by for a quick lunch during our recent visit and were extremely disappointed to find Nippy's closed. A Google search revealed recent news articles that indicated it closed a week before our visit. Apparently there were issues with both the lease and liquor license (drinking outside, but all of Nippy's was outside!). The owner was quoted as saying... More

Well, as the picture shows, not fancy and not much more than a snack stand with outside tables.......but the blackened shrimp was the best I have ever eaten ANYWHERE! Omg. Spicy, garlicky, and melted in you mouth. Everything else was fabulous: soup, blackened fish, chips, etc. Not a huge menu but fresh, spiced perfectly. Off on a side street and... More

We stopped at Nippy's after having people recommend it. The people working there were really nice and the food was excellent. The owner came over to talk to us and when we told her our interests she started pulling out information and writing notes to help us find things.

We stopped for lunch on a lovely Saturday. Enjoyed our meal as well as the live music. They should have Mr. Dempsey play often.

We were drawn in by the local atmosphere and the promise of "fresh seafood, live music and cold beer in a parking lot." And on a sunny Saturday afternoon, Nippy's delivered. Nippy's a little more than a shack with a take out counter and a small "patio" in the parking lot. Tables are wooden, primarily picnic tables with white plastic... More

Had lunch here recently for the first time with a friend who recommended it. It was excellent. The grouper sandwich I ordered was the best I've ever had. It was obviously right from the sea, cooked perfectly and accompanied by wonderful and unique fries and very good slaw. Service was good and location was convenient, I liked the laid back... More

Do not be dismayed by their location in a bank parking lot. If you are a lover of freshly cooked, delightlfully seasoned seafood, I encourage you to try Nippys. We saw Nippys while on a carriage tour of Beaufort and decided to try it for lunch. We arrived on the back end of the lunch rush. Service was friendly and... More

This is a restaurant where you would not stop unless it was recommended to you. It is located in a parking lot with only a few inside seats. We ate there twice and had the shrimp basket and the shrimp poboy. Both were delicious. The food is very reasonable priced and the service is good.
