We stopped in for lunch and had pizza. Our waiter was friendly and very helpful. We ordered the Margarita Pizza we were surprised it was good but we like our traditional pizza being from the North.

Went to this wonderful old bank building with friends for drinks. It was late on a weeknight and the place was pretty empty. Our waitress was not very nice or helpful. I will return because I have been here before and and had a good experience.

Hostess went to seat the three of us and some cranky older server announced that we could sit there but SHE sure wasn't waiting on us!! The tone said enough. Well Ms Cranky ended up taking our drink order in which we waited 15 minutes for. All three of us ordered salads and the proceeded to wait another 20 minutes... More

We got there around six PM, and it wasn't very busy. We were seated and sat, and sat, and sat while most of the servers were standing in a corner chatting and laughing, having a good ole time. After about ten minutes, we left. This was the one restaurant we wanted to try during our stay in Beaufort. So much... More

My wife and I were wondering along the waterfront in Beaufort looking for some where to eat and looked up reviews of local restaurants in our vicinity and decided to give this restaurant a chance. We were both happy we stopped by and I was well fed and I know my wife was too.

I had the surf 'n turf cheese steak and it was absolutely amazing. Others in my group had other things and were less impressed than I was. I'd go again

Best crab cakes ever! We really lucked out - just wandered til we saw what looked good, and was near the waterfront. Food delicious, and we had a great breeze off the water. Our server was attentive and polite, and the service was quick. We had a chance to hear the Parris Island Marine Band play at the amphitheater, too,... More
