Ate there for lunch during the waterfront festival, so it was very busy. Enjoyed my salad and the egg rolls were terrific. Sit inside with a view of the water or inside. Good old fashioned cooking with quite a twist.

Pub like atmosphere inside. Good place to stop for a light dinner and a drink. Nice outside eating area. Try the eggrolls! Very creative.

I usually get the BBQ chicken which is tasty. I had fish tacos this trip, and tasteless fish. Nice view from patio seating, reasonably priced food. Will return and order my usual.

Right in downtown Beaufort (Byoufort) on Bay Street, this restaurant serves the best BBQ in town. The service was great and the food was delicious. It has outdoor seating with a great view and a welcoming bar.

This cafe is on Bay Street, but the back of the cafe has an outdoor covered area looking onto the water. There is not a massive choice on the menu, but what we had was good, I had the catfish and grits, very good and not too heavy, peach cobbler and ice cream to follow. I would recommend this cafe...

This was a very family friendly place with good food, large portions and a friendly staff. Great for lunch or dinner. Try the BBQ wrap with slaw and homemade fries or turkey sandwich - very good eats.

Saturday lunchtime in Beaufort, so everywhere was wait-listed except Q on Bay but service still slow 'because they were slammed'. Food was so-so, a Q-Burger, ordered 'medium' came back so overcooked and dry as to be almost inedible......and after the wait was not about to send it back just to wait some more. On the bright side, the wait-staff were... More

Took the long way round driving from Savannah to Charleston, and wound up on the Bay street in Beaufort. An aficionado of BBQ, I immediately zeroed in on the "Q" sign in front of Q on Bay. Now I have had better pure BBQ, typically take-away, from small roadside stands, in small towns, open uncertain hours, who close when the... More
