Went there with a girlfriend to have a leisurely lunch and chat. We arrived and no tables were open downstairs (this was 1pm on a weekday). We were seated upstairs and weren't acknowledged by a waiter for over 10 minutes as he took separate checks and rang them up for large tables all around us. I walked down to the... More

Our server, Darrel, made a good dining experience even better - he was informative on the history of the town and building. The menu is unique, well prepared and offered with a good selection of available wines. We plan to return to Beaufort (may even settle there) but our first sto will be Panini;s on the Waterfront.

Love the surf and turf cheese steak our waitress Meredith was fantastic with her suggestions. They have a very nice space for out door seating, though you may have a small wait of they are busy. But if you want yummy food and knowledgeable friendly service it's worth the wait.

Ordered a pepperoni and red pepper pizza, pepperoni was thin slices, little strange, not the best coverage method. But the pizza was good and the service was good, great view of the river.

I was disappointed in our meal. I ordered half a panini with a salad. The olives in the salad did not go well with the other ingredients, but worse than that was finding an inch and a half long piece of bamboo (or part of a seed pod?) in the chicken salad. Luckily, I was using a fork to eat... More

Don't fear the almond-crusted calamari; the almonds are chopped finely into the breading and the result is delicious! The appetizer portion is quite large. Our "small" salads were incredibly loaded with feta, walnuts and olives. The small brick-oven baked pizza we ordered was a bit disappointing, but the toppings, including the anchovies, were plentiful. The service was very good, friendly... More

We had lunch here after taking the carriage ride around town. Service was very good and the food was excellent. I had one of their paninis and it was great. Make sure you try this one in Beaufort.

Our server, Darrel, was attentive, knowledgeable about the menu, courteous, professional & accommodating. Food was excellent--artisan pizza made with freshest ingredients! Red Velvet cheesecake for dessert, mmmm. To our surprise, Tuesday night was 1/2 price bottle of wine night. Salute!
