“Enjoyed by all 5 of us”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

We were a group of 5 friends looking for a good breakfast and a local sent us to Blackstone's. The eggs were cooked perfectly, the corned beef hash was delicious, and they even offered gluten free toast and bagels. Only negative was from someone who had never had grits before - and probably never will again - but everyone else thoroughly enjoyed them. Service was friendly and quick.

“Ugh.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

Worse. Breakfast. Ever. Burned scrambled eggs, burned toast and scorched grits. Appalled that this place even calls themselves a restaurant. Avoid at all costs. You'd be better off with a cold sandwich from a curb store.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

We were staying at the city marina in Beaufort and wondered up the street for lunch. Our friend had heard about the Shrimp & Grits...and she was not disappointed. Even though it was time for lunch - three of us opted for breakfast...which was very filling and delicious! French toast - cook perfectally! Ham & Cheed & Mushroom Omelet - yummy! Hash w/ eggs - again delicious!

“Best shrimp n grits”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

We ate lunch there based on the TA reviews and were not disappointed. The shrimp n grits were fantastic. Grits were really cheesy and creamy. Only 1 short block from the river/bay park. Overall, a great lunch in a beautiful town.

“Great Taste in the Low Country”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

My friend and I were camping at Hunting Island State Park, and we stopped in here to treat ourselves to a good meal (we were on a budget Spring Break trip). I tried the shrimp and grits. It was delicious, and I don't even like shrimp! It was alot of food for a reasonable price. Also, our waitress was very friendly, and she gave us a map of Beaufort and directed us to some great sights to see. Also, you cannot get bored at this restaurant because they have plenty of interesting decorations on the walls.
