Blackstones great breakfast menu will suit all appetites.Chef Gregg does a great job. Portions are ample and most delicious. The decor is eclectic with banners from so many colleges, prep schools and branches of the military from all over the US. When folks come in...for the first time, they look around in wonderment. A special and unique treat awaits if you are there at 8 AM each morning. Everything stops, the owner Lou Gaudio rings a brass ship’s bell and announces that the tradition at Blackstone’s is to rise, salute the glad and recite the Pledge of Allegiance. You will not find a better and more colorful local restaurant for breakfast of lunch in Beaufort and it is located just off Bay Street on Scott Street. Enjoy!More

So me and my brother and dad went here for breakfast to end the weekend with the boys. We got the best pancakes which were cooked to perfection, they cook the most amazing eggs I’ve ever had, their bacon was absolutely delicious, the hash browns...just made me speechless, and their biscuits, oh their biscuits. They have the perfect density, perfect fluffiness, perfect taste, and the perfect balance between the food, and the biscuit itself. I would recommend eating here when you visit Beaufort.More

A great place to start your day! Extensive menu for breakfast and you can find everything you can imagine. Servings are generous and prices are great. Service here was also excellent. Restaurant has a very large turnaround, line was long on a weekday and waited...30 minutes but glad we did! Indoor and outdoor seating!More

We all ordered breakfast food and to be honest, none of it was very good and the servings were very small for the type of menu. The one item we all enjoyed were the hashbrowns and the serving was very small. The omelets were over...cheesy--very few vegetables. We waited more than an hour (which we knew--we did not call ahead), so that's fine, but they put five adults (two men over 6'3") at a table for four...we were so hungry that we just took it, but we would not return. On the bright side, they are a skip from the quaint downtown/water view area. That was lovely and made the wait easy. We ate on the way home at Waffle House and everyone said it was so much better than our brunch here... Service was good, so giving three stars...if based strictly on food, it would be two.More

I was very disappointed. The reviews I read, the website, menu, photos all looked good. I ordered biscuit and gravy thinking that being in the south they would know how to serve this southern staple. Wrong. I've seen fast food biscuit and gravy that was...better, in fact I've never seen it so sorry in all my life. I really wish I'd taken a photo to post. I could not suggest this place to anyone, ever!More

My husband ordered a patty melt. It comes with Swiss cheese. My husband asked them to use cheddar instead. Received the bill and there was an up charge for cheddar cheese. What? Besides the fact that it doesn’t make any sense, nobody said anything about...an extra charge for a different cheese. Management did not care to address it, either. Lost us as a customer.More

Good afternoon Passport, Thank you for your review of our great Patty Melt and yes it does come with swiss cheese as the menu states. The grass fed beef has a delicious taste and cooked to perfection. This is enhanced when served on our jalapeno...More

Had breakfast here 3 times. Was great. Food was super and so was staff. The wait on the weekends are around one hour for breakfast, weekdays around ten minutes. We had the two eggs and protein which was great. Also had the Cajun Shrimp and...Grits which was super good.More

We were offered a coupon from our Inn to use for breakfast. Blackstone’s is just a block off Bay Street conveniently located to the dock area. It seems popular even with locals and has a unique charm. I understand they recite the pledge every morning...at 8 am. We called ahead to be placed on the waiting list so we bypassed the line waiting and we’re seated right away. The food was not overpriced and was good but was not exceptional.More
