Best Cornbread Ever!!!

When we visit Beaufort, SC, we always eat at Sgt White's Restaurant. All the food is great, but my favorite is their cornbread. Its flavor and texture is excellent. Friendly atmosphere and very good service add to this restaurant's list of reasons to visit.

You will never have food this good unless you make it yourself. Nothing in this restaurant will disappoint you other than the hours of service. A must try.

My husband enjoyed eating here , but I drank more tea than the amount of food I consumed. Their food was spicy hot , so I wasn't able to finish my meal. If you like spicy , this is the place. However, if my body can't handle it , go somewhere else.

I should have known when we were the only car in the parking lot, but we were coming back from the beach and were hungry. We got the crab cake appetizers. It came with lettuce that I would have thrown out two days ago. My husband's salad was brown and tasteless. I had the strawberry pecan salad. It was good... More

Sgt. White's tastes like a bite out of your Grandmothers kitchen. A meat,two sides, a piece of corncake, and a drink for $7.99. My personal favorite would have to be fried pork chops, collard greens, and mac & cheese. The drink choice is sweet tea or lemonade, just as it should be in the South!

Delicious and generous plate of ribs with two great sides (from the steam table) and iced tea or lemonade is a lunch you cannot refuse. Grest deal for $7.99

It was average for BBQ. Mac n cheese was meh. Potatoes were good with gravy. Nothing spectacular. Lots of Southern cooking options, lots of butter and carbs. This however is an average BBQ spot in the South.

It's a dive. Yes, but it's supposed to be. If you're going to Sgt. White's, you're not going for a fine dining experience. You're going for authentic slow cooked BBQ and made from scratch side dishes. My daughter and I both had the fried pork chops. Wow. They gave me two, but I could only eat one. My wife had... More

On Boundary Street and in a nondescript one story building. You select items from the steam table and then carry to a table. You will be told what's on the steam table. We had great pulled pork, Summer Bean medley, Collard Greens. Very reasonable. We had a tasty meal. Sgt White was a Cook in the Marine Corps. Lunch only.

A real "low country dining experience". The food was hearty and tasty. I had the ribs, sweet yams and corn. Great corn bread. All for less than $20 for two including tip.
