Panini After

The Panini in Beaufort is in an old bank building. The restaurant was once known as The Bank. A few years ago they became a Panini. Each visit has been more disappointing than the last. Tonight was no exception. The House Salad supposedly had a tomato dressing, but since it was dry, we asked... read more

I can't say enough about the food and the service! I even asked for the card of the person who served (Darrel). He was polite and came back several times to ask how the food was (excellent) and refill our drinks etc. The decor is wonderful and historic. The food was terrific. The price was reasonable and we all left... More

You will not be disappointed with this place. The service was excellent and the food choices provide a wonderful variety. We really enjoyed the nautilus pizza (shrimp, lobster and crab) with cheese and tomato sauce.

We were looking for a waterfront restaurant to dine at in Beaufort and decided on this one based on Trip Advisor reviews. We asked to be seated outside, but there was what looked like a festival going on, along with live music. The view was blocked by privacy fencing and the music was so loud we couldn't carry a conversation.... More

The food we had was delicious, the server (Darrel) was great, and the location on the bay is fantastic. We didn't have a seat with a view, but they have a nice walkway around the bay and we walked around that after dinner.

We could sit outside and even on a busy Sunday we found a table. Good shrimp and grits Italian style!! And mimosas. A nice surprise as we did not know anything about this or any other beaufort restaurants.

We had the pizza, very cracker thin crust but good. Can't really see view from water how they have the bar area but after dinner walked along the boardwalk back to our inn and it was very nice. Staff is great and you get a great deal for the money.

We loved the food at Panini's. Most everyone got the pizza and it was delicious. Not much in the way of happy hour discounts but everything was reasonable.
