My wife and I ate at Sgt White’s on our recent visit to Beaufort. The food line was very eye appealing. I ordered the meat loaf and three sides. I was told the meat load was not ready. So, I then ordered the ribs. Then the meat loaf was placed in the window. The nice lady gave me meat loaf... More

Oh, man! Be sure to enter on an empty stomach. Sgt. White gave us the grand tour of his buffet offerings, and it was all delicious!! I don't eat pork, so I had the grilled chicken. I was sucking the bones! The mac n cheese, greens, and bacon cooked corn were out of sight! I got a taste of my... More

Absolutely delicious. I loved the authentic Southern food. Highly seasoned, just like it's supposed to be. I can't wait to come back to try some other selections. Very friendly folks, simple decor, but it's all about the food. Portions are plentiful and price is reasonable. Come try it!

Sgt White's definitely attracts the crowds with the big tanker truck outside and the smell of open pit BBQ. After living in Beaufort almost three years, I finally got the opportunity to check out Sgt White's for lunch. After a friendly welcome, Ms. White went over the fresh meal of the day. Too many choices to narrow down to a... More

I ordered the meatloaf with three sides. The mashed potatoes and gravy, collards and lima beans. All were fantastic. The meatloaf was a little salty, but still very good. From the time the nice lady greets you at the door and explains the specials till the time you walk out it was a very pleasant experience. The portion was huge,... More

There is a choice of meat, this day pork chops, bbq ribs, pulled pork, baked chicken or fish; choose two or three side dishes from a choice of about 10, included is a square of cornbread and a large glass of...

As new residents of Beaufort, my husband and I have been looking for the restaurants where locals eat. We hit paydirt with Sgt. White's Diner. Customers are served by a lone server who helps each person courteously. She didn't seem to tire of running through the menu items as new customers lined up. My husband ate pulled pork; the sauce...

Step through the door and you come face to face with a steam table loaded with freshly-cooked Southern foods. The day we were there, the choices included pulled pork, ribs, meatloaf, fried and BBQ chicken, and fried whiting. Down-home Southern-cooked vegetable selections and delicious homemade desserts round out the offerings. A truly personable proprietress is right there at the steam... More

This place is a step back in time. The lady who dishes up the food and calls out the orders warms your heart. The smoked BBQ pork melts in your mouth. Red and white checkered tablecloths and a view of folks going about their daily business on the street of this local downtown restaurant. Priceless atmosphere, Great food and Southern... More
