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.

While walking the scenic Beaufort waterfront, we stumbled upon HEMINGWAYS, an unassuming bar/bistro. We just loved the laid-back atmosphere. There was even a bassett hound named Hemingway sitting comfortably at the next table. The bartendress, Zoe, was warm and welcoming, but best of all, she makes the most incredible bloody mary and mimosa in the world!!!! Unlike many local spots,... More

Ate lunch here April 24, 2015. It was after 1:30 pm so not many patrons inside or outside. We ate on the covered patio as it was a perfect day weather wise in Beaufort, mid 70s, light breeze, humidity not noticeable at all. We each had their She Crab soup and we each thought it was by far the best... More

My husband and I left Hilton Head Island, SC for a trip to nearby Beaufort, SC. It is a beautiful Southern town with wonderful Antibellum homes which they say were spared by the Pirates, since the citizens befriended them. All in all, this historic town has so many beautiful homes set among the huge oak trees dripping with the legendary... More

Cute place. Everyone is super friendly. Wonderful Bloody Mary. The bartender is full-service. She'll even spray Ya. ya with poison-free bug spray while you enjoy your drink outside. :). She's awesome.

My husband and I stopped by to have a quick bite to eat. We found our way down an alley and into the small bar, which had a great atmosphere. We sat down at one of the few tables and waited for someone to acknowledge us. There were three others sitting at the tiny bar. The waitress yelled over the... More

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.
