Fun place by the water

Enjoyed a good meal with family last week at Plums. The marguerites were very good and my shrimp and grits, which I had never had before, were excellent and very filling. I thought the prices were a bit high considering that salad was not included with our meals.

The food here is really fantastic, but we had a terrible service experience. Our waitress all but ignored us. We sat near the kitchen and could see our food sitting in the window for almost 10 minutes. By the time it was served many of the dishes were cold. The manager did a great job of helping fix the situation... More

My wife and I dined here our first night in Beaufort. Plums, recommended by our B&B, is located on Bay Street, with a back area outdoors fronting, appropriately, the Bay. Evidently people in Beaufort like Plumb, but we found it very noisy with slapdash service and so-so food. We may have ordered poorly (the low country boil), since many people... More

My wife and I wanted seafood on our trip to the coast. We were disappointed at a previous restaurant we visited but decided steaks were not an option. We started with a dozen raw oysters, $14.95. They were great! My wife had soft shell crab, $14, and I could not make up my mind. Decided on 1/2 order of scallops,... More

My husband and I had lunch out on the patio and enjoyed a beautiful afternoon, just chillin' near the Beaufort River. My husband had the Bacon Swiss Burger and I had my favorite, the Biarritz wrap. It was busy but we were seated within about 10 minutes, worth the wait for a seat outside.

We waited more than 45 minutes for lunch and my soft crab po'boy came out cold. Fortunately my husband shared his wrap with me. The sweet tea was good. It's a very pretty place and I was sad that they fell short. We had a walking tour that we had to get too.

Staying in Hilton Head and decided to drive up to Beaufort to visit the historic town on a cloudy day. Town was bustling and asked a local for lunch suggestions. She gave us 4 and we checked each out. Chose Plums for the menu and old town appeal of the restaurant. Place was busy with patrons waiting for table and... More

This place is associated with Saltus which is a few store fronts away on Bay St. Sit outside if possible overlooking the park and the ICW. Service one day was great but not so much on the follow up visit, but the food is worth it.

Plums was our choice for lunch after a carriage ride. We did not to have reservations, and we only had to wait about 10 min. to be seated. All tables were full. The menu had a wide selection of items to choose from. We choose Wraps that were so big we had to share them. Service was fast. We enjoyed... More
