The staff was very friendly, and the food was different but good. Some of it didn’t seem so fresh, though. They were sort of busy but it’s a small place, so it’s easy to get that way. They forgot the order of someone I was...More

My first time eating Gullah style food since I've lived in Beaufort. From what I know about the Gullah culture this is true authentic Gullah style cooking. Everything is made fresh from scratch. A excellent tucked away little gem.

Our first visit to Momma Lou’s. Really good food. Highly recommend the fried fish and Gullah rice. Great prices for the amount of food you get. We went after the lunch hour and had the place to ourselves, but they get really busy around lunchtime....More

This is not a fancy place. It's more like your grandma's kitchen, if your grandma knew how to cook good Southern food or soul food or was part of the Gullah people who were brought here from Western Africa as slaves. The placemats give more...More

I enjoyed the collards the most, they weren't seasoned, but they were perfectly cooked. The ribs were cooked in a pressure cooker, with good sauce and flavor. The bread and peach cobbler were seasoned with pumpkin pie spices. I enjoyed the lima beans with okra,...More
