She Crab Soup

very good ! Salads are fresh and the She crab soup is spot on . I get it every time we go. Good wine list and full bar. Not a bad place overall.

This has become one of my favorite places to eat in Beaufort. The food has always been high caliber and delicious. Had the Frogmore Stew/low country boil last night and it was so good and highly seasoned and yum! Also recommend the stuffed flounder, shrimp and grits and gumbo from past visits. I like that at dinner one can get... More

My husband and I ate lunch here while visiting Beaufort as part of a Diamond Tours bus trip. I ordered the 1/2 ham sandwich and low country gumbo. My husband had the 1/2 ham sandwich and clam chowder. They were really good. The place was very busy, but the server did a good job.

Had a very nice lunch prior to taking the Spirit of Old Beaufort tour. I can't remember the waitresses name, but her Server Id is 5711. She was very attentive and pleasant. When I was having a problem deciding what to order, she made a recommendation and it was great - the shrimp salad deli plate.

My wife and I went to Plums the other night for dinner. The restaurant was recommended so we decided to try it out. Big mistake. Upon entering the front of the building, we noticed a lot of employees standing around, and even one laying in a booth. As we approached the "hostess", several more employees came in a side door,...

Good choice for a quick lunch in a quaint setting. This restaurant is a re-use project -- an old bank converted to a cozy restaurant.

Had dinner here after exploring around town. The food was delicious (we had an appetizer, dinner and desert) and the service was lovely! We sat on the outdoor patio overlooking the water and even considered going back for lunch the next day!

Very rushed atmosphere . But it took 45 minutes to get a sandwich. Sandwich was ok but certainly not worth the wait. Will not return

This is an ok place to grab lunch if you're on the waterfront. The food was average; a little salty, but the waitstaff was very nice, and the atmosphere was enjoyable.

The food here was very disappointing. My fish sandwich smelled very fishy and the rest of the food we ate was mediocre at best.
