A Real Treat For Lunch

I stopped in for a quick lunch while exploring Beaufort and was very impressed with the atmosphere and food. I had the regular Reuben sandwich with fries. The service was friendly and helpful. A real treat and would come back for more.

The sign on the sidewalk showing the lunch & beverage special had an arrow pointing "this way" down and around the corner. With other more obvious eatery options, I could have missed this one. I thoroughly enjoyed the homemade Quiche Lorraine w/a side of their delicious cucumber/red onion/vinaigrette salad (yum) and a very refreshing Absolut Basil Breeze (must try) while... More

Hidden along the waterfront walk, this small place has a cool porch when the breeze is up. Great frosty pints to cool you off after walking the town with good options for lunch foods.

My family and I stopped in for something to eat after our full day of airplane and car rides. They had great food, drinks and service! Highly recommend!

Stopped in here after reading TripAdvisor reviews to have a light lunch and a Bloody Mary. Bloddy Marys were excellent! Wife got seafood salad, which she loved, son got grilled ham n cheese, which he noted had a ton of ham. Daughter got a hot dog, and I got a chicken cranberry wrap. Food was generally pretty good, and prices... More

Hubby and I found this hidden gem snuggled In between two popular restaurants. Realized quickly it's a locals spot when wait and a kitchen staff from other places stop in for a drink. Good specials - strong Jell-O shots for a buck! Tiny little place, had a great time chatting to bartender and other local people! Look for the umbrellas... More

My wife and I stumbled upon Hemingway's Bistro in downtown Beaufort. The restaurant/bar is on the back side of many shops and restaurants (In between Panini's and Luther's) and next to the Century 21 office. We stopped and had a couple of drinks on the covered patio area overlooking a park and the water. The server was incredibly friendly. While... More

You have to look for Hemingway's, its behind the stores and facing the waterfront, but worth it. We sat outside in the shade and it was very relaxing. We had a simple lunch - I had a hot dog with mustard and relish (it was grilled and tasted great) and my friend had a tuna salad sandwich that she said... More

Love these guys. Great service. Cool little dive in middle of town with a river view. Couldn't have had better service. Our waitress even brought our dog a bowl of ice water. This place wins my loyalty.
