Great Lunch Establishment

Stopped by after reading the reviews. Quaint little place on the bay. Indoor and outdoor seating. Really pretty views of the water if you eat outside. Kids meals included two sides, which you don't see often. Selections of chicken fingers, etc. Regular menu included salads that you could add... read more

We did not feel that we received great service. We always eat at the bar to receive personal service. This was not the case here. Bartender was preoccupied and did not give great service. We just got an appetizer and left.

It was nice area. On the waterfront, see the ships come in and out. My husband and I stopped to have an adult beverage and my son wanted to try the shrimp and grits. I can't eat seafood, but I will tell you it smelt so good that I want to take a bite so bad, but did not want... More

We held a rehearsal dinner here last week and everything was wonderful. The food was outstanding but the people that work there made everything even better. From planning the party with Chip to Shelly being there the night of the dinner to the wait staff they could not have done more to make the night memorable. Everyone that was anyone... More

Plums has been in Beaufort for years and there's a reason,,,, it's a great place to stop and eat. Nice atmosphere. You can dine inside, or go outside overlooking the waterfront. Great selection to choose from and prices are reasonable. We make a stop at Plums every time we visit Beaufort.

For starters we had grilled green tomatoes with mozzarella and basaltic glaze... Very good! For lunch I had their magi and it came with fried okra over a chipotle tomatoes sauce with corn in it.. I guess a southern dish? It was about $11, but the smallest piece of fish I have ever seen. Then ran out of the dish... More

Nice place. Nothing spectacular. There were house fly's everywhere. I didn't hold that against them in the review. It was just annoying trying eat. For some reason the fly's really enjoyed corn.

Ordered the curry scallops with Carolina rice. Second order was half pound shrimp and Gouda Mac & cheese. The curry scallops with Carolina rice was absolutely amazing I wish I could go back and order again! The Gouda Mac & cheese was also fantastic! The shimp wasn't bad either. We sat outside on such a beautiful evening but the flys... More
