Clawsons is a staple in Beaufort and we always enjoy our dinner there. A little pricy, but good food and service.

We thoroughly enjoyed our shrimp and flounder. Absolutely delicious! We walked in really late, like 10 minutes before they closed, and they treated us wonderfully!! Didn't seem to mind the late business at all. Great staff, and great food!

We are here after the Independence Day parade. The service was good but our food wasn't great. We both ordered a Cobb salad and it was warm...?? Not sure why it was warm but I prefer my salad cold.
