After eating out for several nights in and around the Beaufort/Charleston areas, Sweetgrass was really the highlight of our trip. We arrived a little early, so walked out on the docks in front of restaurants for a bit. So pretty!

We were seated out on the screened in porch. There were a few bugs out there, but no big deal. Our meals were incredible. From the sweet potato biscuits to entrees, everything was delicious. Our party ordered the special (a stuffed fish type of dish) and the shrimp and grits, which were incredible. Our service was great, waiter was friendly, and we thought the menu to be really creative and fun. The owners were busy in and around the restaurant, checking on tables, etc. Restaurant was relatively calm when we were there (6-7:30ish) but started to get busy toward the end. A total surprise from the outside- interior is so pretty and atmosphere is great.


The attached market at the marina is surprisingly cute and had a good little deli-type of area.

Great service and great food. The shrimp were very good as were the pecan scallops. I would recommend this restaurant above all in the area.

Typical SC fare.
Can get a nice salad with oysters or shrimp.
I had onion soup which was OK but the cheese had sunk to the bottom of the cup, making for an unimpressive presentation.
I had spring rolls with a nice chili dipping sauce.
I also had a nice attempt at sweet potato gnocchi. Was a nice dish; the gnocchi were light enough and lightly dressed.
Beer on tap and a nice bar scene.
I was down on this place but each visit has been better. It is not trying to move to gourmet upscale. But they are making a nice attempt at variety and new dishes.
I wish there were more choices and particularly one between average and very good, maybe a scale of 1 to 10? Maybe a 7.
Dinner for two would be around $50.

We've been going there for the past few years since they've opened, 2 or 3 times a year. It's always been good, often times great. Prompt and friendly staff, nice selection of tasty menu items, and beautiful views. I personally would like them to serve larger shrimp but it could've just been the dishes I had since they were more of a side than main course.
