Based on a recommendation from a store clerk we decided to check out Beaufort Grocery Co. for dinner on Father's Day weekend. The place was a little busy and we didn't make reservations so we had to sit outside. I was impressed by the menu selection and ordered a steak and a few hefeweizen to compliment while my wife ordered a steamed fish of some sort. Both were specials of the day. We were willing to overlook the slow service since our waitress was nice and it was a beautiful day outside. Once the food arrived we realized the place was nothing more than a façade for a Rachel Ray wannabe. The fish was bland and tasted like something old, frozen, and on its last leg trying to be revived by the chef through steaming. My steak was ordered medium rare but came out almost well done. When I told the waitress about my steak she said it'll probably take about 30 mins for another one to come out since they're busy in the kitchen. We decided to finish our food and take it as a lesson learned. Paid the bill and noticed my credit card was missing. I went back inside to ask the waitress about my missing Amex and it took the hostess about five minutes to find her. Waitress said she was sorry she must've dropped it and will look for it immediately. I waited for about ten minutes and she came back and asked if I can leave my phone number and she'll call as soon as she finds it. I politely told her she needed to find my card. Another five minutes and she returned with no card and said she'll call me as soon as my card is found if I leave my number. I asked to see the manager and within a minute she returned and said the manager was really busy and would be out in about five to ten minutes. She saw the look of anger on my face and went back inside to get the manager. She returned immediately with no manager but had my Amex in her hand. She said she was sorry but still no manager. I crossed off the original 25% tip and left her a less than desirable amount. During the time period my card was unaccounted for there could've been an identity theft gang operating out of the kitchen but the waitress nor a nonexistent manager did nothing to assure me this wasn't the case. Needless to say we won't be coming back. The place is a tourist trap where travelers hope to dine in classy settings with locals. The owners were really hoping for a star in the Michelin Guide and turned out to be not worth the hype.
