Surprise in Beaufort!!

My wife and I were driving from Charleston to Savannah and decided to take a quick look at Beaufort having never been there before. My wife spotted Sgt. White's and almost did not tell me because it looks like the kind of run down local place I love and she can pass by. She was feeling kindly so we... read more

We'd been looking forward to visiting Sgt Whites since first spotting it on trip advisor and reading all the great reviews. Looking for a place to get some authentic southern BBQ, we were not dissapointed! It's a really unassuming place, no frills but feels wonderfully homely. You can choose a meat and either two or three sides. The pulled pork... More

An unassuming place to look at, stuck in the corner of a strip mall parking lot. As you walk in, you are greeted by a woman at a steam table which holds numerous meat choices - barbecued, fried and baked (chicken, ribs, pulled pork and so on) and lots of sides. We chose pulled pork and BBQ side ribs in... More

While on a Low Country road trip we were driving north toward Beaufort, getting ready for lunch, so checked Trip Advisor for references. Found Sgt. White's. This place is a real "find", having been on The Stern's selection of best road side diners in the USA, 4x. The owner, Sgt. Mike White, is a former Marine DI. Being a Vietnam... More

This is a little, special place on road into Beaufort, you go up to the server and choose what you want from what is before you. For lunch meat and one or two sides. I had chicken, collard greens, spicy corn, great mashed potatoe and great gravy with delicious corn bread and either lemonade or tea. My husbands green beans... More

Been by this place 100 times and finally stopped. Best bar b q I've had in the south. Had peppered corn, gumbo, collard sides and 2 ribs. Fantastic. Friendly place on top of it! Will be back

I asked my GPSr to find a bbq place and she headed me to SGT White's. Well done, GPSr! It doesn't look like much from the outside - good cammo, Sarge! The inside is full of military signs, most dealing with the USMC, of course. Serving, either for eating in or take out, is cafeteria style with paper plates and... More

We read a recommendation in Road Food & gave it a try. The sign outside said 13 choice buffet. What it is actually, there are 2 ways to order, either 1 meat & 2 sides $7.99 or 1 meat & 3 sides, $8.99. We enjoyed the experience. Very patriotic, which reflects the marine base in the area. If you are... More

The food is really good.. you do get a lot for 8.00 worth going. The owners are very nice.. it's not the cleanest so don't go in a think it is. Would like them to change the food up cause it's the same kind every time I ever go

My daughter lives in Beauford S.C. We to Sgt. Whites restaurant for lunch . She warned me the portions were big. The atmosphere is welcoming but very patriotic and supportive of our fighting men and women especially the Marine corps. The food is as advertised just as grandma made but healthier and portions generous! The chicken , sweet potatoes, fried... More
