We had to queue for a short while for a table outside high we were happy to do. Beaufort is lovely and this little cafe provided pleasant service and a lovely lunch. Definitely recommend

I didn't know Beaufort was a foodie's city. We ate at Plum's twice. We shared an inside table with the busy lunch time crowd that comes here for the great food. Get there early for a table on the porch where the river breeze is wonderful and the company and service are friendly. The cat fish and oyster po" boys... More

What a delightful place! A table on the deck overlooking the water made for a perfect lunch. My Low County Rueben made with thinly sliced turkey, cole slaw and pimento cheese was the perfect pairing. Not a crumb was left. Combine with a little ole Swamp Water cocktail made for happy customers.

After a weekend in Hilton head we decided to delay our trip back home with a detour to Beaufort. Looking for a view found Plums walking down the street. Did not want to stop as plums did not sound like a seafood restaurant. We saw inside oyster bar but it was not happening. Being hungry we stopped. Got a table... More

Was in town for sightseeing. Stopped at Plums. It was a great location, close to the water. The food was outstanding. I had one of their salads with fried oysters and it was excellent. We were with frienda and everybody was very happy with their food, and very complimentary. Would highly recommend it.

I live in Bluffton but grew up in Beaufort and have been going to Plums since I was a kid. We visited today for lunch, had the fried oysters which were great as always. However the atmosphere seemed stressed. I feel like the male manager on staff today was not concerned with the quality of service, our server Sarah did... More

Took friends for dinner on Sunday evening. My wife's drink was horrid, tasted by three of us and decided it was medicine with coconut flavor. When we told waitress she became defensive and took the drink away. Told us someone else just ordered that same drink and she didn't mind it! Wow! Two of us had cheeseburgers and neither was... More

I have eaten at alot of restaurants in my life, but I have never seen such a badly trained waiter that we had here. Food was average. View overlooking the water was good. However, the waiter was terrible. We sat for 15 mins with him walking by numerous times without eye contact. Finally, I asked the hostess to send us... More

Their shrimp and grits for lunch is one of the best meals I have ever eaten. I was a bit disheveled after taking Janet's Walking Tour of historic Beaufort, but the staff seated me graciously and served me efficiently. I sat on the patio with a nice view of the harbor. Very nice ambiance throughout. A good way to experience... More
