Beautiful day....beautiful lunch.

Each year when my wife and I visit Hilton Head, we always reserve a day for Beaufort. Our routine is familiar and special for us. We stroll the shops along Bay St. and look for a bite to eat at one of the restaurants that have a “back porch” with a view of Harbor River. This year we chose... read more

We sat outside in the back facing the water for lunch. It was nice to see the boats and relax. Absolutely enjoyed ourselves and the food. Family friendly.

My girlfriends daughter suggested this place as a 'cheap lunch'. I didn't expect such a beautiful restaurant set in an old bank, much less the wonderful view from the outside tables. So, after the aesthetics being so pleasing, I was thrilled by the delicious food. We had the white pizza as an appetizer, which even her picky palate appreciated. She... More

I had a Cesar Salad and my wife had She-Crab Soup. We also shared a pizza. My wife said that her soup was "Okay". My salad consisted mainly of iceberg lettuce with very little romaine. I have never seen any place put iceberg lettuce in a Cesar salad. Romaine lettuce is what belongs in it. The pizza was good, not... More

My husband and I went to Panini's for dinner last night. We ordered a house pizza as an appetizer. To us, it had No flavor. My husband ordered a half lb of pasta.with marinara. It must be a half lb of cooked pasta because their serving was rather small. My husband said it tasted like jar sauce. I ordered baked... More

We went the night before our Marine's graduation and the food was fantastic as well as the service. The decor is very nice as well. We decided to go back after graduation with our Marine and were treated like family. They did not charge our new Marine for his food and were so nice to him. I would recommend Panini's... More

We had an average meal, salad & seafood ravioli, and fettuccine. It was a late dinner, we were told our 8:30 arrival was not late at all. There were two other parties dining, many empty yet dirty tables vacant. The staff appeared tired and sorry to see us. Our meal was average at best. Will try one of the many... More

Very nice restaurant downtown Beaufort. Quaint, beautiful shops, great view out the window. The food is gourmet and at a very good price. The wait is not long and the atmosphere is better than just an average grill. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, the staff are fairly friendly.

While sightseeing in Beaufort, we stopped in here for a late lunch. The server, Lauria, was prompt and courteous. I had the Reuben panini, and my friend had the Mac 'n' Cheese. There was more than enough food for both of us. If we ever visit Beaufort again, we will be sure to stop at Panini's.

We stopped in for lunch on a day trip. Was seated quickly and server arrived shortly after. The selection of pizzas are really great! I couldn't resist the chicken cheese steak. It was excellent!! I wanted to order 2. The sawbrook chardonnay @ $5 a glass was smooth and buttery just as described. The pasta salad is interesting. Sweet and... More
