Sun was setting and it. Are for a beautiful evening. The food wasn't great but wasn't bad either. We had the stuffed flownder, and like I said... More

Great food with a super view! Our group of three ate a late lunch at the Sprouter Inn and really enjoyed it. My crab cake sandwich was pleasingly composed of mostly crab and very little filler.

Very relaxing dinner always at the Spouter Inn. Food is fresh and excellently prepared. The friendly staff enhances the experience. The view of the water for inside or outside dining is very calming.

We were in Beaufort and daughter was working in the area so we met for lunch. Got to sit out on the deck where there was a very nice breeze. It was very relaxing and we enjoyed watching the boats out on the water, in particular sailboats. The food and service were good. Sent daughter back to work after enjoying... More

Linguine and clam sauce tasted pitiful. Pasta over cooked, way too buttery and hardly any clams. Peel and eat shrimps were tender but over seasoned ! Try a different place

We ate our meal outside and enjoyed the view. My husband had the crab cakes, I had the shrimp and grits and the kids had crab legs. The food was good and the service was prompt.
