Food is good

The place was packed so we did not get an outside seat which would have been better. The inside is a bit drab and the tables are very close together. My husband and I had the Po'Boy sandwiches. They were very good and there was a lot.

We sat outside on a beautiful spring day and it could not have been nicer. The service was very good and the food was good. We had oysters that were very fresh and shared salad and fish tacos which were also good. If you visit Beaufort and can get a patio table, this would be the place to eat.

Four guests, asked to be seated either inside or out. We were seated at a table outside and we felt fortunate--but then......we waited, and waited, and waited. When our wait person finally decided to ask if we would like to order a drink we felt things might get better. Nope! Three tables around us who came in after us received... More

At home in California, planning our trip to Beaufort, I pictured a nice lunch on a sunny day by the waterfront. Plums fit the bill - lovely location, delicious shrimp sandwiches on French rolls, an afforable glass of wine, and good service. It was fun to people and dog watch as we ate on the first day of Spring. Would... More

First off we waited over an hour for food that was terrible and definitely not fresh at all. Our waitress was extremely rude and unhelpful. All this place is a tourist trap. I would never go back to this awful place. The TV was "broken" during the NCAA tournament. My wife found a hair in her sandwich and the bread... More

Nice outdoor dining experience. The food was good, as was the service. Tables were a bit close together for complete dining comfort, but fun for bumping into someone new.

We walked through the downtown and didn't see any restaurants but finally took a side street to walk along the waterfront park. Then when saw several including Plums. Not sure why we picked this one over the others but glad we did. We had an excellent meal and great service. It was worth the walk back to the hotel in... More

Over the last 10 years we have gone to Plums every time we visit Beayfort. The food and the fun never disappoint and they TAKE reservations! We went Friday and then took visiting friends on Saturday. The Low Country Boil we had Friday was a new menu item for us and reminded us of the ones we did with our... More

We ate here for lunch. We had the peel and eat shrimp(with a kicker cocktail sauce) and oysters. Good local beers on tap. Dog friends too!
