This restaurant has the honor of having quite nearly the best location in Beaufort..right in the heart of shopping and right smack dab in the center of the waterfront near the marina...how cool is that? Let's talk food: Portions are commendable. Pasta cooked and served like it should be. Serving parm, oregano and chili flakes on the side was a... More

I have been here several times and sent guests here. We have enjoyed our previous visits as have our guests. However, tonight was not so good. My cousin ordered the pasta with meatballs. The sauce consisted of canned tomatoes served in large chucks without much else. My pizza was a bit dry and not very hot. Usually the pizza is... More

We stopped here with my brother and sister in law for lunch during our Thanksgiving week stay at Harbor Island. We picked the restaurant for the outside patio and as dog owners it was delightful to see all the pups on the patio. My husband and I had Panini's but we should've ordered pizza. We should've payed closer attention as... More

We were referred to this spot by the locals and it was terrific. Flatbread pizza with outstanding toppings. The pizza is airy and crisp and cooked in front of you. Their chopped salad had lots of flavor. Had the full size pizza and took half of it back to our inn. It was delicious cold! We enjoyed our evening in... More

Stopped here for lunch. Food was very good but as others said the waitress was slow. My wife and I split a small pizza. Was the perfect size for two (for us anyway).

We chose to eat here today because it was a beautiful afternoon and this place offered outside seating with a great view of the waterfront. The restaurant was busy but not packed. After being seated by the hostess it was at least ten minutes before our server appeared to take drink orders. We then had to wait an additional twenty... More

Had lunch, this was a great place to sit out side. Crab cake salad was fantastic. Nice balance of flavor and texture. Great location to than walk and shop at neat little stores, and walk along the water. Very nice.

We ate outside overlooking the harbor and enjoying the patrons who brought dogs with them. The food was great and different, not the same old thing. Our server Ginger was excellent.

I am a traveling Ob/Gyn (drcathylbagleydotcom) who frequents Panini's along Beaufort's scenic riverwalk whenever possible. It's location, location, location is key as it's situated at the start of the riverwalk adjacent to an ample parking lot and marina allowing you to fuel up in preparation for a grand walk through down town for power shopping, along the riverwalk or across...
