Frogmore Stew

One cannot go to Beaufort without having Frogmore Stew - or in this case the Low Country Boil. Plum's stew included the requisite red potatoes, sausage, shrimp, corn on the cob and flavorful broth, and was available in both a full and half size. The shrimp were large and tender and vegetables... read more

We stopped for lunch - the place was very crowded and there was a wait for an outside table, we stayed inside. Ordered one of the specials of the day, half a turkey sandwich with a cup of Gumbo (the sandwich was plain, the Gumbo was very good); a cheeseburger with pimento cheese (they make their own with white cheddar...

Lunch was delicious and very reasonably priced. They have a great outdoor seating area that is dog friendly and quite large overlooking the water.

We hit Plums with a group of 10 that turned into 15, the staff was amazing, took amazing care of us with a big table where our loudness was welcome. The service was excellent with the number of picky friends in this group they handled us with class and care. The food was great as always and no one had... More

Do not let the exteriorior dissuay you, do not be put off by the initial walk in area. This is a darn good lunch spot with a great riverfront seating area. Food is really good and prices are reasonable.

We ate both dinner and lunch here in January. The shrimp tacos at dinner were excellent. Meals at both dinner and lunch were very good. Large portions. The view from the restaurant of the waterfront was very nice. Waitresses were very nice and helpful with suggestions. Overall, we had a great experience here and would recommend it to family and...

Excellent food in a relaxed atmosphere. The curried rice bed under the scallops stole the show. My wife would not share the stuffed flounder it was so good.

We traveled to Beaufort for the day from Hilton Head and happened upon Plums Restaurant on Bay St. Located in downtown Beaufort. We had a window view overlooking the Beaufort River. The lunch was so delicious. I had the steamed shrimp (the best I have ever eaten in my life) and a salad. My husband and friends went for the... More
