“Excellent barbeque”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Right in downtown Beaufort (Byoufort) on Bay Street, this restaurant serves the best BBQ in town.
The service was great and the food was delicious. It has outdoor seating with a great view and a welcoming bar.

“Table with a view.”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

This cafe is on Bay Street, but the back of the cafe has an outdoor covered area looking onto the water. There is not a massive choice on the menu, but what we had was good, I had the catfish and grits, very good and not too heavy, peach cobbler and ice cream to follow. I would recommend this cafe if you are in Beaufort. Not too expensive either. Get an outside seat if you can, everyone seems to head outside so its pretty quiet indoors.

“Good barbeque”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

This was a very family friendly place with good food, large portions and a friendly staff. Great for lunch or dinner. Try the BBQ wrap with slaw and homemade fries or turkey sandwich - very good eats.

“Delish”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Had an early dinner with beers while sitting on the deck looking out over the water on a sunny Saturday evening....does life get any better? Food was delicious....highly recommend the blackened fish tacos. Great atmosphere and great food

“Lunch, just OK”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Saturday lunchtime in Beaufort, so everywhere was wait-listed except Q on Bay but service still slow 'because they were slammed'. Food was so-so, a Q-Burger, ordered 'medium' came back so overcooked and dry as to be almost inedible......and after the wait was not about to send it back just to wait some more. On the bright side, the wait-staff were cheerful despite being over stretched in what was not a full restaurant.
