Met my husband here and still enjoy lunch and dinner - preferably on the porch! The food is tasty and there are some small and large plates. The service is very nice and it is right in the center of downtown facing the park. PERFECT!

We ate lunch here & it was superb! Best sandwiches, Cole slaw we had during our week's stay n Hilton Head. The soups were also delicious and unusual. The portions were plentiful and oh so good. No room for dessert. The place is busy though. There is some seating outside facing the water.

Not impressed with food, too loud and rowdy bar drinkers. Other areas of the restaurant were empty where couples or families could have been offered seating. Not happy!

Four of us had lunch here yesterday. Loved sitting on the porch. The food was very good. My husband and I had an oyster po-boy and a bowl of gumbo. My problem was that we had just returned from New Orleans and even though it was very good it wasn't as good as the po-boys and gumbo as we got... More

We were seated quickly right next to the bar. At the bar sat many young men who had obviously been enjoying libations and were very loud. So loud that it was difficult to have conversations with our friends at our table. When our dinner was served, we were even more disappointed. I ordered the shrimp and grits. The grits were... More

We visited in February, during a particularly cold snap, so we ate inside, but could see that the outdoor seating is lovely. Maybe next time. We came for a late lunch, after spending some time on Hunting Island, walking along the beach. Our waiter was very friendly and prompt. I do appreciate that, since we were hungry. I had my... More

This is a very nice restaurant and bar on the water front in Beaufort. Large beer selection served very cold. Excellent bar food served by a very friendly staff. This is our must eat place in Beaufort.

I eat here quite often. There is a bar and outdoor seating. I usually order a burger, pimento cheese or egg salad sandwich or boiled shrimp at lunch. Their sweet potato fries are good. Dinner time the menu changes a bit - they used to have a salad with ahi tuna which was a favorite of mine. Normally I order... More

While walking on the waterfront...I was a little hungry. So we stopped into Plum's and had the best Fried Okra appetizer ever. I highly recommend this restaurant - very well decorated and the menu looked fantastic. It was busy and that is definitely a good sign especially with all the happy faces.
