Great food with a view

Known for their pizza, they also have a nice selection of low country cuisine. Sit outside if you can for the view, Service was polite and attentive, but not over bearing. A good value for the dollar.

I went to lunch at Panini's with 3 girlfriends. We sat outside on the covered patio (glad it was covered because there was a little rain). I had the Shrimp Salad and my friends all ordered panini sandwiches. The shrimp salad was very good but it was on a huge bed of lettuce, way too much to actually eat. The... More

Enjoyed lunch here with friends visiting from the UK. Enjoyed lovely fresh salads followed by great thick crust pizza. Staffs were welcoming and friendly. Well priced and generous servings.

I stopped here for lunch on a Friday, which are busy days in Beaufort, because bootcamp graduation happens every Friday morning. For that reason, it was a long wait and I decided to sit at the bar. My mom thinks their she crab soup is the best so I ordered that and a caesar salad. I had never had she... More

Had shrimp just about every place on Bay St. And this was one of the best. Service is always a issue, but it is like that at any place on Bay St. Anyway, you are on vacation so relax and enjoy being there.

We had visited Beaufort years ago and wanted to see how the bank building looked as a restaurant. We had looked up the menu on-line because my wife is a vegetarian and choices are generally limited. The fresh bread and rosemary olive oil that was served with our drinks was wonderful. Our server was excellent and his suggestions made our... More

My husband and I had dinner on the patio in March. Our server Rhyan was very nice and provided excellent service. We started off the meal with Calamari. It was fresh and fried perfect. My husband had the crab cakes and I had a salad with fresh shrimp. Both were very good. The pizza dough bread sticks were so good... More

We have only had lunch at Panini's but those lunches have been consistently memorable. The bread for the panini is made on site in the wood fired oven. The last time I was there I had the calzone of the day, Italian sausage, pepperoni, sweet peppers and onions served with an excellent basil parmegiano red sauce. The wait staff is... More

My wife and I were in Beaufort for the Air Show in April. We took our dog down to the waterfront to enjoy the mid-morning. As we were heading back to our car we noticed the restaurant and saw they were pet friendly. Being hungry we waited until they opened at 11 and received a warm welcome from the owner.... More
