“Excellent food and service in a noisy and crowded restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Both my wife and I enjoyed our meals despite the cafeteria like restaurant. My scallops were particularly good. We were very lucky with our service too. We thought that the chef and the staff deserved a better setting.

“Big Reputation, good food spoiled by Rotten Service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

I joined the beautiful patio scene and ordered a glass of wine which had to be returned because of its dirty glass. Then, asking if there was a choice of oysters, I was told no but the table beside me had three options 5 minutes later. The oysters arrived with no fork, no horseradish and my request was met with disdain as if it was my fault. No bread or crackers were served with the oysters. Indicating I wishes to sample a couple of things I requested an appetizer portion of the shrimp/grits and a cup of soup. I was told the chef was unable to divide a dish so no go on that one. I was never asked if I wanted a second glass of wine; was presented with a "here's the bill, do you want anything else"? The whole experience was appalling, cost me $80 and although the food was good, the treatment was unforgivable. When I left, there was no one at the door to say good night or how was your evening. I might have let them know but courtesy is not their thing.

“Excellent food, service and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

This restaurant has great food and wine from a good menu. The chosen main courses of salmon and blackened Dorado were perfect. We had excellent service from our friendly server, Belle. A very pleasant terrace atmosphere overlooking the Beaufort Marina.We would definitely return and thoroughly recommended.

This is the best located, decorated and staffed restaurant in Beaufort. The menu favors local ingredients and a creative approach.
