We had lunch here on a Thursday. We drove over from Hilton Head to explore the area. They were busy but seated us out back quickly. We had a great view of the water since it is right there on Bay Street. I had a...half salad with a nice size piece of Salmon on it. I tried 2 different dressings and both were homemade.More

Was only in Beaufort for the day, so we had to make good choices! Plums was definitely at the top of the list! I had the Shrimp Salad Plate with fresh fruit. It was wonderful! And the view of the river was fabulous. If I...was a local, I'd definitely choose this place often! Also very dog friendly which I enjoyed seeing.More

We had lunch at Plums on a Sunday. Food was average to good but seemed most tables were having trouble getting wait staff attention.

4 of us had lunch at Plums today. The location is is perfect and the food was excellent. Two of had the shrimp and grits, one had 1/2 lb of fried shrimp and the other had a shrimp Po Boy. All meals were excellent. My...bloody Mary was OK but weak and no more than a 12 oz glass. Disappointed on the BM but the food made up for it. I'd go back for sure!More

We have visited Plums many times for lunch or dinner over the past years we have been in Beaufort, and have always been satisfied and enjoyed the experience. We went downtown recently for breakfast and found that Plums was serving breakfast. The biscuits and gravy...were not what you expect, but were spicy (not spicy hot) and relatively light. They were so good, I have been back again for more.More

As a visitor, we had a very nice lunch at Plums. It’s right on the riverfront so the view is amazing. The hubby had a BLT sandwich and I had the curry chicken salad and a cider beer. The patio was full with a waitlist...so we chose to eat inside. The staff wore masks and the occupancy provided social distancing among tables but it’s so beautiful outside, next time I think I would slow down and get on the waitlist for outdoor seating.More

We love Plums for it’s relaxing atmosphere overlooking the harbor, for its good wine list and it’s food. Our server was friendly and efficient and my shrimp salad BLT sandwich was delicious. We’ve eaten at Plums several times on both visits to Beaufort, they never...disappoint, it’s the first place we go upon arrival for lunch to unwind and relax. Definitely opt for eating outdoors on the back side to watch the world pass by.More
