There was nothing spectacular about the food here, it was just average. We went when it was extremely busy because of the water festival and it seemed like it was the least crowded. We waited quite a while for our food and then they mixed up my mother's and aunt's order. Don't waste your money, go somewhere else!

This place is in downtown Beaufort. The food was good and so was the service. They were definitely overwhelmed with the crowd but they still did a great job

We had a nice dinner on the back porch, but the most memorable part of the evening was the door that slammed every time a server went in and out, which was constantly since this is a busy little restaurant in a great location on the river. It was difficult to hold a conversation, and we finally skipped dessert and... More

I went with two other friends to visit Plums. We had lunch. We arrived a little before 12:00 and thank goodness we did because it sure filled up quick inside! The inside is okay, and the outside has a nice view. My friends both had the tomato pie and they both raved about it. They thought it was delicious! I... More

We've enjoyed Plums when we make the trip to Beaufort for years, especially when we dined on the back porch... and now it's even better since they've added a nicely shaded outdoor dining patio overlooking the park the river. Excellent food selection and quality for a moderate price, and very good service. The funky interior is just fine for cool... More

This restaurant is located on Bay Street in Beaufort, the restaurant at the back has a covered seating area looking out to the water and the park. This is the best area to sit in as everybody heads to the back. The food was good I had a sirloin steak which was good, most of the menu is seafood or... More

Grabbed a quick bite at Plums on the porch with our dachshund. I can personally vouch for the fried okra and Lowcountry Boil - both really good. Great views from the porch and we met some really nice people walking along the Waterfront which is just out the back of the restaurant. Definitely worth a try if you're in Beaufort.

Our 1st stop from Charleston to Savannah did not disappoint..Lunch was delicious and plentiful, service was a little slow but they were also packed with a waiting list so that can be over looked as long as we had our drinks/water/beer...the Potato salad was the best I have had in a long time and the fresh tomatoes were simply divine!

we had a couple of hours to kill on our bus tour and we stopped there before heading to Savannah. Beaufort is a very cool town, and the main street has plenty of places to eat. We chose this as it had a sign for jambalaya. that soup was really good, and the other dishes not so much. We odered... More

Nothing to rave about. We had hopes to eat outside but it started to rain as soon as we arrived. The table of screaming children didn't help the atmosphere. The meal was average. Somewhat southern but nothing too spectacular.
