Stopped in for lunch after reading the great reviews and it did not disappoint. I ordered Patrick's Pastrami sandwich. The pastrami was delicious, tender and lean with the right amount of cornichons and mustard. My husband ordered the pork schnitzel sandwich which he raved about. It was perfectly prepared with cucumber and dressing which made a wonderful combination. The dinner... More

My wife and I stopped in the Great Gardens Café based on the reviews on TA. And we were just absolutely surprised by the friendliness of the entire staff (really a family that owns the Café), excellent food choices, reasonable prices and tasty food. You could really tell this was not a chain restaurant but a family business that really... More

From the road, this place looks like nothing. Once you enter and look out over the creek, you start to realize you are somewhere special. The food is as breathtaking as the view. The schnitzel was great. All prepared when ordered. Their desserts are suppose to be very good but who can eat dessert after such a filling meal?

I have being to Great Gardens at least six times. Every time I have gone the food, customer service is consistently excellent. I have gone to Great Gardens for Dinner, Lunch and Breakfast. You will find a lot of dishes from Germany and Austria. The view from this restaurant is spectacular. What makes it so special is the family that... More

This family owned and operated business is an amazing experience. Remember "never judge a book by its cover" when you drive by, and it is easy to miss. From the road you would never guess what the view is behind this restaurant. It is one of the most beautiful anywhere near this town. The view is one of a secluded... More

I'm not an expert on German food, but I know the food in this restaurant is very very good. I love the fact that the cook, the hostess, and the waitress are family. I also love it when the cook brings the food to the table with a big smile. I would do that too, if I could cook like... More

My family is German and I was a German exchange student in Bargteheide, Germany...best German food I've eaten since this time in my youth! We had sausages and Sauerbraten (like a German Pot Roast!) I meant to write this review some time ago! We ate there back in March and we are now traveling back to Beaufort from Charleston and... More

The service was very good but we were the only ones in the restaurant for about an hour. Food was only average, We sat outside with a view of the marsh which was nice. We won't go back and can't recommend it.
