Panini's offered me a great new twist to an old favorite, the Reuben. Their version was, of course, on wonderful grilled panini bread. Next came a homemade coleslaw to replace the usual sauerkraut. The finishing touch was a zesty remoulade instead of the typical Thousand Island dressing. Wow! It was great! Dined on the covered back patio to enjoy the... More

This was good good food. We only shared a thin crust pizza. It was late. But it was wonderful. Friendly staff and good service.

Panini's Cafe is in an old bank building. They refurbished it and their finished product is a wonderful place for a brunch, lunch and probably a great p;lace for an early evening dinner. We stopped in for a lunch on May 21st at the what would be the worst tie in the restaurant business… 2 O'Clock. Almost no one was... More

Great ambiance indoors and out. It is located in a majestic old bank, directly on Bay Street. Inside there is an beautiful ornate wooden bar. Outside, the porch sits on the park waterfront with great views of the bay. Our waitress was wonderful, and helped us with our meal selections. Some of the lunch selections can be ordered as a...

We visited for dinner. My children (9 and 11) are fairly picky but really enjoyed their meals (delicious manicotti dish made with crepes) for one; homemade chicken tenders for the other. I had the She-crab soup and a salad as I wasn't terribly hungry, but it was the best She-crab soup I've ever had! The server was incredibly nice, and... More

We tried this place while shopping on the quaint little street in Beaufort. We started with the clams as an appetizer which would have been pretty good had it not been for the crazy amount of sand in each bite. Its as if they didn't bother to wash them well or they didn't let the clams degrit, which is a... More

We've visited Beaufort several times as my family lives there. Our most recent trip brought us to Panini's for the first...and last...time. We went around 6pm on a Saturday night expecting a wait, but there was none. We know now why. Once seated, we waited quite a while before our server actually came over. Rather than introduce himself or go... More
