I like this restaurant. Because this restaurant is nice ocean view. The sunny day is very good. I always ordered soft shell crab sandwich. But I ordered pasta. This pasta also good taste! And I recommend the gumbo soup.

This restaurant is right in the heart of Beaufort with really nice waterfront seating. It's rather small with limited seating both inside and outside. It's nothing fancy, but it's clean and tidy. The menu has a nice variety of light food and a good selection...More
