Thin crust pizza with fresh ingredients. Cocktails are reasonably priced, service is friendly and the view our back is outstanding!

Our group tried everything from the Hoagie’s, Omelette, pizza and salad. Everyone loved what they ordered. The service was very good. The atmosphere was really neat, being an old bank building. It right on the waterfront in Historic Downtown.

Food was horrible and service mediocre. We chose this establishment because it was quiet and afforded a large table for a family get together. We were the only table occupied so that should have clued us as to what to expect. The pizza was passable...More

A hot day along the water. Visiting Beaufort for the first time I wanted to sit out on the deck with the umbrellas. Upon being seated I asked the server what the incredibly noisy machine was we were listening to. It was a fan ....More

Nope, not going back. Driest gluten free pizza I have ever had in my life. Horribly slow service. A sheer waste.

Friends from Charleston came to Beaufort for lunch. We had two shrimp platters, mac & cheese with shrimp, and a Mediterranean pizza. We all agreed we would order the same thing again. Great place, you won’t regret having stopped by.

If you're concerned about this, I recommend avoiding this place all together! The food is great: well seasoned, presented and portions are ample. Of course, they do have salads with oil and vinegar on the side to dress it up. More
