Mimosas are great for brunch either on Saturday or Sunday. The service was okay. The server was slow and didn't anticipate the guests needs. We always had to ask for napkins or butter or jelly. Kind of annoying when it took her a long time to come back to our table. The food was good. I ate the the French... More

Hoping to find a place that wasn't too crowded for Sunday lunch.. this turned out to be a good choice. We were seated immediately and our server was very helpful. We ordered soup and sandwiches. The Pastrami Reuben is excellent. One in our party ordered the chicken salad sandwich and had a hard time eating it, as the bread was... More

Shrimp salad sandwich very good. If it's the end of the week, skip the bakery items. They tasted old to me.

Maybe if we had not just had the most wonderful breakfast at Beaufort Bread Company the day before, then maybe we would have thought this was an average breakfast. But to be sat at a table next to the restroom and wall while only 2 other tables were filled was a let down. The 3 cheese omelette was a combination... More

Efficient if not particularly friendly. Quite awful dried sandwich. Not just lack any butter but dry bread. I always thought USA was great for sandwiches. Obviously exceptions exist.

My family and I went there for a quiet Sunday Brunch and we weren't disappointed! We got omelets which were mouthwatering! And the bakery treats were fantastic! The atmosphere was quaint and relaxed.

Hey, if money is no object to you and you are OK with small portions, drop by. After all, it is very tasty. However, if you are like me and need some value when taking the family out to lunch, I'd suggest elsewhere. Good luck finding value in Beaufort, by the way.

We had eggs, grits, crispy bacon and their oatmeal toast. Everything was prepared perfectly. The service was excellent and we enjoyed the nice outdoor seating with a beautiful view. The coffee was good along with the mimosas we had. I totally recommend this restaurant.

Went for lunch the other day. Took my mom there, as she was visiting from VA, and I knew there was enough variety to please us both. It was 12:30 on Sunday, so almost every table was full. We were seated promptly, but then it took another 10 minutes for anyone to pay attention to us. Our waitress took our... More
