Want a great lunch in Beaufort, then head to Hemingways. Zoe is one of the best bartenders in Beaufort. Great sus and sandwiches, and you can hear local musicians on Sunday afternoons!

I was in for lunch and had an awesome bowl of chili. The bartender was friendly, knowledgeable, and definitely made my experience a pleasant one. I would definitely recommend them.

My husband and I have a vacation home in Beaufort SC, and have had the bisque here before. We were looking forward to going back and trying it again. Well we got there around 4pm during the week and we were told that they only service food until 3pm. We were disappointed, until our waitress, Zoey,said she'd check the kitchen... More
