paninis has the best customer service!

My daughter and I had the pleasure of being helped by Darrel who was very friendly, courteous and helpful. By far, the best customer service I have experienced at any restaurant in a long time! The food was delicious and my tea glass was never empty! I highly recommend this establishment!!!

Stopped in here for lunch on a recent day trip to Beaufort and thoroughly enjoyed it! We ate out on the back covered deck, which has a great view of the adjacent water front park area, marina and open water. The food was excellent, we had paninis and brick oven pizza and all of it was very fresh and tasty.... More

This restaurant was highly recommended, and it did not live up to its reputation. Food was just okay. Service was lacking, even though the wait staff had few customers. Overall, I would not return.

We visit Beaufort twice a year and ALWAYS make it a point to stop by Panini's. The food is very good. We especially like the antipasto platter. Incredible quality ingredients, a generous portion and great value make it a must have. The seafood pizza is also really, really good. Darrell was our server Valentine's weekend and was on-point. Another perfect... More

Nice variety of specialty pizzas and food. Terrific service, friendly staff and perfect family dining experience. As frequent diners our family really enjoyed this establishment on our last dinner out! Clean and well staffed with minimal wait time on food. Love the pizzas!

Waffle fries were soft and luke-warm. Panini sandwich was not pressed -- bread was still soft and colorless. Darrell was excellent server, though.
