Sgt whites has been one of the best barbeque restaurants ever. We miss this restaurant, since we do not live near by. Their barbeque is amazing, and their cornbread is my favorite and without it, this would not be a true barbeque restaurant.

I'm a local and what is the old adage? Go where the locals go. If you love soul food then you wont want to miss Sgt. Whites. Originally located on Hwy. 21 across from the Marine Corps Air Station, Sgt. Whites moved to it's current location on the corner of Ribaut and Boundary street in what used to be an... More

I came here with my family the day of marine graduation, when we arrived the lady waited for all of us to get in before she started explaining how everything works. I ordered the shrimp dinner and my mom had the catfish. The shrimp were small but tasted great! The catfish on the other hand was excellent! ! I also... More

We read the reviews and they got it right. The food was fresh and the vegetables were full of flavor. The cornbread was outstanding. The two meals with drinks were about $18 with tax. It was a big meal for a small price.

Excellent southern soul food, and the nicest people running the place. The chicken was amazing, as were the collards and the corn. I think it was &7.95 for a meat & two sides? Can't be beat! We will be back soon. They are only open weekdays, and only for lunch. Try it!

Homemade food that has no rivals. Fresh ingredients prepared daily on site. A great lunch buffet. Very reasonable prices, speedy service (you do all the work). Homespun charm and local flair. Limited menu and hours. Soul food at its best.

Lovely place to eat a really good BBQ. The welcome was friendly and informative and everything was explained clearly as being from UK we were not familiar with all the dishes on offer. We chose ribs and didnt regret it, they were lovely as were the sides. Really good food at a great price. Well worth a visit .

Sgt. White's is the must go to BBQ joint in Beaufort. They're not open on weekends, and their business hours are kind of funky, but well worth working your schedule around. The service is cafeteria-style, and there's always a line of locals waiting to get a great BBQ meal. My wife insists that we go there whenever we're in town.... More
