First day in Beaufort SC and the rain is torrential. We stopped into the Plum restaurant at the recommendation of a local store owner. It was crowded but we were seated quickly. We orders the Shrimp and Grits and the Biarritz. Both were good but...More

My first time in this city. Somebody recommended Plums, so I went, hankering for raw oysters. That's what I got, for a reasonable-but-not-real-cheap price, in a pleasant setting with notably friendly staff. A dozen oysters on the half-shell ..... SLURP, BURP, SIGH ! Washed down...More

You know this is a good place as at 12:30 on a Thursday we had to wait 30 minutes for a table, as the kitchen was slammed. Not a big issue though, we went to the bar, got a couple of drinks, went out the...More

Had my share of fried oysters and this was the best-fried oyster po boy ever. Fresh juicy plump, lightly fried, not greasy, and not heavily battered. Crowded but was seated inside looking out to the view. We had a sweet waitress who helped me with...More
