Crab cake was just ok. My husband got the spaghetti and meatballs and said it was pretty good though. Very warm at the bar though because of pizza oven. Ask the servers about the history of the place.

We tried Pannini's at the recommendation of the B&B we stayed in. We stopped in for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. It is an od bank building and very nicely done. The bar is amazing, nice old dark wood, very nice. They had a great wine list and a good assortment of local beers and a nice list of specialty... More

The menu didn't offer the one item I was looking for, a fried shrimp salad, and our waiter took it upon himself to make sure I got what I wanted. He went and cooked it himself! My husband had the King Neptune pizza and it was great as well! Thanks to Brett for the great service!

If you have a group of people who can't agree on what kind of food they want for lunch or dinner, then you want to head to Panini's. The restaurant fronts on Bay Street, the main shopping street in downtown Beaufort, and it backs up to a beautiful waterfront park along the Beaufort River/ICW. Panini's occupies an imposing, grand building... More

If you want a fun place to eat in downtown Beaufort on the river, then Panini's is a great choice. Most of the food is delicious and the pizzas are very fun. Some of the Panini's are bland, but overall most of the dishes are worth the purchase!!!

I love this southern specialty, & couldn't get enough out of the cup I ordered! My boyfriend had a panini, which he really liked, it was also very large! So the paninis were ~$10 each, but it was a lot of food so it was worth it. I had the sangria which I enjoyed, also a nice caesar salad. Waterfront... More

This place was ok. It was sort of generic considering the area's spirit and unique culture. Prices were not bad.

Panini's offered me a great new twist to an old favorite, the Reuben. Their version was, of course, on wonderful grilled panini bread. Next came a homemade coleslaw to replace the usual sauerkraut. The finishing touch was a zesty remoulade instead of the typical Thousand Island dressing. Wow! It was great! Dined on the covered back patio to enjoy the... More
