Excellent meal in a lovely setting. Inn keeper Jenn was the perfect host. Gazpacho was fantastic. Everything was delicious down to the cocoanut cake. Can't say enough about the food an the Inn. Didn't stay at the inn this time but planning a trip back!

We visited the Cedars for dinner only. We did have reservations so the hostess was ready for us. The food was excellent. Snapper and red drum were our entrees. They were prepared with finesse and delighted the taste buds. Cannot describe everything the chef did to prepare a delicious dish. We also shared the garden salad which is an understatement... More

Lovely, quiet dinner. The quality of the food and service is always superb! We all had different fish and appetizers followed with a raspberry, Prosecco sorbet which was awesome. This is a great place for a local meal.

A beautifully decorated restaurant with especially pleasant staff! We thoroughly enjoyed the menu with something for everyone with discerning palates! We had a lovely wine with a cheese board appetizer. We had the filet and tuna steak, both delicious. For dessert we shared the coconut cake, which was absolutely delicious! Highly recommend for fine diners staying in or visiting Beaufort!

A restaurant run by foodies! Superb quality. Coming from the Pacific NW, mid-Atlantic fish are all new to me. This is the restaurant to enjoy local catch. They know their product Total aside, the art on the walls is local, and the building is original mid-1700s

From the moment I called for a reservation, to our arrival and greeting by our waitress, Jen, we felt like we were so special. The Inn is beautifully, tastefully decorated- A nice quiet reprieve from the crazy waterfront restaurants. We had cocktails and appetizers, all more tasty than the next. Especially enjoyed the bisque- full of whole shrimp and tons... More
