“Graces Hits All of the Bases”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

This intimate restaurant tucked inside a bed and breakfast serves innovative southern style dishes with grace and efficiency. While the number of dishes is small there is something to interest all tastes. The wedge salad was unlike any I have had before with balsamic vinegar added to the typical ingredients. The flounder was marvelous; unlike any preparation I have sampled. Foodies who prefer fillet should stay away however. The shrimp over sweet potato and grits was to a northerners liking. Deserts were tempting and the strawberry celebration cake a delight.

Portions are generous but not overly so. A starter of fresh baked popover with strawberry butter was mouthwatering. Having made popovers myself, these were freshly baked. The prices were just a bit above the chain family restaurants.

Bring your own wine to make this an even more pleasurable dining experience.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Just returned from a lovely lunch with 6 other friends. We all enjoyed the food. Our waitress was very gracious and took excellent care of us. Between all of us we had the salmon, orange-marmalade chicken salad in croissant, crab cakes, fried chicken and pannini. Will be going back in 2 weeks to try their "high tea". Great place!

“Southern fine dining at its best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I had the privilege of having dinner in Southern Graces while visiting my sister in Beaufort. I had known beforehand that the food was good, but what I didn't expect was that it was AMAZING! I had the best pork tenderloin ever - cooked to the right doneness and melted in my mouth...oh la la!!! My ten year-old daughter had the duck which she polished off in no time. She declared that it was the best food she's ever had in the US! My only regret is that we didn't have time for a second visit. Would have loved to try some of the other dishes as well. Will definitely make this place the top priority the next time we visit Beaufort. Kudos to Chef Christopher and Bethany for a job well done!
