Great location, personable staff, yummy food. The fried Oysters were so tender I wanted more. The chowder was delicious but watch out, if you don't eat ham they failed to tell us it's in the chowder. My friend had shrimp and grits for the first time and loved it. Generous portion. Their Cole slaw was a "10". We sat outside... More

We had dinner here on the patio overlooking the water on a beautiful warm evening. The crab & shrimp dip appetizer was excellent, as were the fish tacos. My wife had the grits with shrimp which she said was only average. Overall though we were pleased with our meal and great service by Frankie.

Entering about 3:30, we were the only diners. Having the restaurant virtually to ourselves, our service was great, though not the most friendly. However, too late for lunch specials and too early for dinner specials. It's Restaurant week so we had hoped to take advantage, but...only for dinner.

It looked like it might be a cute place for lunch on the waterfront. I ordered the egg salad sandwich and as I was biting into it, my friend noticed a hair dangling from it. The waitress invited me to order something else. So I ordered a different sandwich. When it came,I couldn't believe it when I saw a Hair... More

We had lunch at Plums recently. It is situated on the waterfront park on the Beaufort River. Since it was relatively warm, we ate outside. Lovely view. Food was fine I had Classic Rueben and a side salad and my wife had the Plums club sandwich and fruit salad. Nothing gourmet, but very good. Dog friendly also.

Maddie our waitress saved the day for us, excellent service in spite of denying that we made reservations which we followed by several phone calls to confirm our reservations as we were running a little late while traveling. The food was really good, the raw oysters were great, as were the low country boil, the Brie, the salad, the fried... More

Food and service were OK. The cramped seating arrangements were aggravated by the crowd of the late lunch. No view from inside. Only good view is with the outside seating.

Loved this restaurant. Friendly manager and staff. Shrimp and grits were excellent as well as the rest of the family's meals. Reasonable prices. The also offer 1/2 portions at reduced prices which were just perfect for our appetites. We will return!

Thank Robin F
