“Great food, staff, and location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We ate here 3 times during the Beaufort Pirate Invasion. Staff was great, they were honest when they were running little slow due to the invasion and being so busy before they seated you so you knew what to expect. We ate there twice for lunch and once for dinner. Food was always very good and service was always very accommodating and friendly. Would definitely recommend this place and will eat here again when visiting.

“Great Waterfront Breakfast or Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

We love to go to the Boardwalk Cafe for a waterfront breakfast at least one day each time we visit Beaufort. You can sit outside and watch the boats, or site inside in a very quaint cafe atmosphere that looks like a classy soda fountain from the 1950s (black and white tiled floors, etc). Lunch is good too--good food in a good location.

“OK food, OK service, just all-around OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Stopped here for what I thought would be lunch with our three children prior to taking a pirate cruise. Just an FYI- 10:45 is not lunch time in Beaufort, it's breakfast or nothing! We parked the baby's stroller at the empty table next to us (only three tables were occupied on the deck) and the waitress got snippy and wanted me to move it to the sidewalk. I couldn't do that without unloading our gear (purses, digital cameras, video cameras) and informed her that I would be happy to move it, should someone want to occupy that table. Perhaps that set the tone, but she was in no rush to come to our table. Despite the fact that it was a pretty slow Friday late morning, she took FOREVER!!! My middle daughter desperately wanted a salad- no go. We had to order off the breakfast menu. We can deal with that, but the food took over 30 minutes to arrive. Were they waiting for the chickens to lay the eggs before they could cook them? Had to ask for ketchup, had to ask for jelly, had to ask for butter for the pancakes- would think these things would be standard with breakfast. The food was Ok- just about what we expected. We really enjoyed the outside seating area and watching the boats- has it not been for that feature, I probably would have given 2/5 for a rating. Once we got the bill, it took her over 15 minutes to come back to take our credit card. We had to flag down another server to tell them we were ready to leave and ask to pay our bill. She seemed nice enough and perhaps our experience would have been better if we had another server.

“Good Food With a Nice View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

This is an above average breakfast/ lunch place with a nice view along the water of beautiful Beaufort, NC. The city is very charming with cute shops, friendly people, and this nice breakfast place. Its definitely worth a visit or two if you're in the area.
