Pizza was very good as well as the sandwichs. Waitress was very good and gave great tips on sights to see while in town. Very pet friendly.

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

In a lovely old converted bank building (note the ceiling), I was in The mood for a steak and I was not disappointed. The pizza was made right in front of us and had a rather thin crust with a variety of options. I loved the hand cut, crispy fries. It was worth the trip

We had a great lunch here outside on the deck. Lovely view of the river. There was a quirky band playing next door which encouraged us not to linger. Server was very attentive. Would try again. Beaufort is a charming little town and worth the visit!

I came across a recommendation for Panini's from a guidebook for the low country. As only three restaurants in all of Beaufort were mentioned, I figured this would be a great place for lunch. I had previously eaten at several very nice restaurants and none of them were mentioned in this article, so we went to Panini's. This turned out... More

My friend and I were visiting Beaufort and had Panini's recommended to us by the lady at the tourist center. The hostess was very strange and stared us down while walking us to our table. When we sat down she said "that's interesting necklace," but it was not said in a nice way. She sat us at the edge of... More

When we visited the restaurant it was quiet only four out of the 14 outdoor tables were taken. Indoors was not that busy either. The food was good but the food was extremely slow in being served. One of the tables had a full glass of a large soft drink dropped right on a young ladies lap she was completely... More

The service was definitely above average. Server & manager went out of their way to make sure our experience was above average helping my friend with recommendations on a special bar drink. Our water glasses stayed full. The shrimp & grits while good and the shrimp cooked well, I've had better. Both husband & friend had pizzas. I also tried... More

Although this place has a small eating area inside, the outside dining area is very welcoming and you will even get a cool breeze off the water. As for the food, delicious. The pizza was one of the best that I have had. If you want something to eat more in the comfort food category....try the mac & cheese!!! This... More
