Our party of 6 went here for dinner and sat upstairs( which was comfortable and festively decorated for the holidays. We were sad to learn that there were multiple panini offerings for lunch, yet you cannot order one for dinner. We felt a bit misled judging by the name, but even our waiter said he thought they should serve paninis... More

Many restaurants in Beaufort are not opened on Sundays. The restaurant at the Beaufort Inn was also closed until after New Years. We were walking thru town and saw they were open also it had been recommended by one of the locals. Service was very good and prompt. The food was good and the portions plentiful. View didn't matter because... More

On a cold Thursday night in beautiful Beaufort, SC, I just wanted a light meal and a beer. After walking around the business district, I found Panini's. I got the wood oven baked pizza (with Italian sausage and caramelized onions) which was a very good, and was a perfect size and a decent price. The pizza is served with a... More

The food was good, the outside view was great and the staff was very good. If you want the waterfront view lunch would be best.

I'm not sure if my lunch friend and I hit an "off" day or if we should have just stuck with their panini specialty. The mussels appetizer was mediocre at best, lukewarm and unremarkable white wine sauce. The she crab soup was good except for the splash of malt vinegar on top (wondered if they confused it with the sherry... More

I should have known this would not be good when the bread served was stale. The paella we ordered was terrible- the shrimp and mussels were overlooked to the point that the shrimp were mushy. There was supposed to be chorizo in the paella - I had one tiny, tiny piece. Do not waste your hard earned money on this... More

Some unusual combinations for the pizza toppings. I had shrimp, chorizo, mushrooms and apple strips on mine as they obliging changed one of the toppings to something I liked. It tasted fantastic. Tuesdays seem like a good time to visit as a bottle of wine is half price and if there's any left, you can take it home! I'd recommend... More

The decor and atmosphere are inoffensive. The service was decent as our wait person had a trainee in tow. The pizza was rustic and quite good, the chicken panini was acceptable and the white bean and sausage soup was insipid. Maybe they should change the name of the restaurant to "Pizza".
