Opened up the door and was met with sewer smell masked by pine sol so we ate outside. Food is ok. There are better spots. Shrimp poor boys were disappointing, coffee lukewarm. Service was good.

Plums is not fancy but very convenient to the Beaufort where we were staying. We were looking for lunch around 3 PM and most places don't serve lunch after 3 PM, and Plums does. It was a lovely day and we sat on their covered back porch with a wonderful Beaufort River view. We had Shrimp and Grits and Low... More

Nice local menu. Friendly atmosphere. I ordered shrimp and grits but the sauce had an allergen for me. No sauce so it was very bland. 3 others at my table enjoyed their meals. We were 2, and they would not seat us at a 4 top. So, we asked the next couple in line to join us. That was fun!... More

My wife had the Peel and Eat Shrimp and hummus with garlic, feta,and olives with pita and pimento cheese. I had the gumbo and sea scallop with curry. All were fantastic. The service was superb, and the view (we ate outside) was priceless!

We were in Savannah all afternoon at a seminar. Left there starving. Opted to drive all the way back to our home town to dine at Plums. It is consistently great food and great service. One can choose to dine on the back porch (they have heaters) and take in the beautiful views of the bay. Or dine inside. The... More

We stopped here for lunch, not a large lunch menu, but everything was delicious. The crab cake sandwich was delicious and so was their gumbo.

We never expected to get one of our best meals on the long trek south this winter in a little, off the beaten path, southern town. We usually eat on the run but on the detour to Beaufort couldn't resist the Plums menu. It didn't disappoint...on any front. The service was wonderful...shout out to our most personable server, Monet. The... More

We used to enjoy Plums but a recent visit changed that. A few years back, it seemed the restaurant was a bit classier with white tablecloths, candles, nice dinnerware and excellent food. On our last two visits, we were disappointed. The building and furniture is much more "worn", very crowed with as many tables packed in as possible, the atmosphere... More

Great food and service. Ribeye was perfect. Sat out on the back porch. The heaters were almost not needed.
