Amazing fish and huge popovers!

One of the best, if not the best fish dinners. Started out with the popover, light, airy, and warm, which were as big as the bread plate. I had the crispy scoured flounder, which was served whole and cooked to perfection. My husband had the crab stuffed grouper, which was also very tasty. We... read more

How can a chef overcook a filet mignon? Anathema! Two of four filet mignons overcooked ,no color except dark tough meat. Knives were requested to be able to cut meat. Husband not wanting to make a scene exchanged his brides meat with his as she could not chew meat with ease. Spoke with chef who pretended to be concerned and... More

We've been there a few times before. Went on a Thursday night and the place was not busy. The service was outstanding. The she crab soup was good, but not the best we've ever had--but still quite tasty. Our entrees were perfectly prepared and very good. The dessert (a small chocolate brûlée, a small piece of strawberry cake and a... More

Spouse and I escaped for a relaxing night. The Beaufort Inn room was wonderful. Ate at the restaurant, Southern Graces, because of proximity and menu looked good! First of all was not aware of BYOB! Secondly, reserved table in the library and when we arrived were told that the other group had booked first (though my husband had spoken to... More

We were passing through the Beaufort area and booked a table at Southern Graces Bistro in order to have a taste of the Southern cuisine (when in Rome...), and we were really glad to have done so, as it ended up being one of our best restaurant experiences in the United States. Beaufort is a beautiful, quiet (in February, that... More

The most important thing to remember is to bring your own wine as the restaurant is not licensed. There is no corkage charge. the setting is very nice with attentive staff. The prix fix menu on Valentines day was very good and reasonably priced.

Love, love, love Southern Graces. The staff is always friendly and the atmosphere is historically quaint. LOVE the popovers for lunch. Yum! A treat to watch a new customer receive. The salads are perfect, love the sweet potato grits, and priced affordably. No complaints - just kudos!

Southern Graces has always been a favorite for me (and family and friends who are all locals), but a recent visit during restaurant week put a bad "taste" in my mouth. I privately messaged them but got no response, so here's my two cents: Good morning. Southern graces has been one of my favorite dining places since I first moved... More

My wife and I went for the first time for restaurant week to try. We made a reservation and were seated 30 minutes later. Overall the ambiance is wonderful, the food is good, but like previous reviews stated, food was barely warm. They are in need of management with better structure and organization. I would recommend this restaurant for the... More

We eat out a lot, so expected so much more given the chef's credentials. After one hour, our entree arrived Luke warm. The staff was apologetic and promptly took care of it. Nice ambience and you can BYOB.
