“Casual fare, delivers on promise”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

We were drawn in by the local atmosphere and the promise of "fresh seafood, live music and cold beer in a parking lot." And on a sunny Saturday afternoon, Nippy's delivered.

Nippy's a little more than a shack with a take out counter and a small "patio" in the parking lot. Tables are wooden, primarily picnic tables with white plastic patio chairs. Menu was a little limited but they deserve points for sticking with what they know! Members of our group of 4 ordered either grouper or shrimp, offered blackened or fried, and served with plastic cutlery in a paper basket with french fries, slaw. Food was fresh. Portions were satisfying. To use the restroom you literally pass through the kitchen. And the live music, outside under a tent, added flavor to the atmosphere.

As the sign above our table reads "If you have a "reservation" you're in the wrong place!"

“Freshest Grouper I've ever had”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Had lunch here recently for the first time with a friend who recommended it. It was excellent. The grouper sandwich I ordered was the best I've ever had. It was obviously right from the sea, cooked perfectly and accompanied by wonderful and unique fries and very good slaw. Service was good and location was convenient, I liked the laid back atmosphere with the outdoor tables in the shade.

“Casual outdoor dining in the heart of Beaufort”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

Do not be dismayed by their location in a bank parking lot. If you are a lover of freshly cooked, delightlfully seasoned seafood, I encourage you to try Nippys. We saw Nippys while on a carriage tour of Beaufort and decided to try it for lunch. We arrived on the back end of the lunch rush. Service was friendly and fast; food hot and tasty. My husband had the special, shrimp po boy, and said it was great. My fish tacos were very good as well. The fries were thin - not my preference - but still good. While we weren't there for cornhole or live music, I can see where that would be a popular activity in this outdoor venue.

“Good locals spot”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

This is a restaurant where you would not stop unless it was recommended to you. It is located in a parking lot with only a few inside seats. We ate there twice and had the shrimp basket and the shrimp poboy. Both were delicious. The food is very reasonable priced and the service is good.
