We have been coming to Plum's for decades, but this is my first review on Trip Advisor. Long ago it was a real quaint local hangout with the best shrimp roll around. Now it has almost tripled in size and continues to dish up some tasty food from the same minute kitchen. The restaurant feels a bit tattered around the... More

A very charming place to have lunch. Seating on the back porch gave a view of the water. The oysters Po boy and grilled shrimp are very good. The servers were very nice and very professional. Will be stopping back by on our next trip to Beaufort.

My husband and I are in Beaufort for 2 nights. We wanted a quick bite for dinner. Plums has a nice atmosphere, music I like, and very attentive staff. We don't eat seafood (I know, I know) and are pretty simple. I got the chicken salad sandwich and he got the cheeseburger. They weren't the best we ever had but... More

I ate the soft shell crab and grits. The grits were good but cheese would have made them better. Tasso gravy was a disappointment. Oysters were raw and good but not served with horseradish or hot sauce. Clam appetizer had tomato sauce on top? Our server was great and very thorough.

First, the good news: we enjoyed a raw bar tower (10 oysters, 10 clams and 10 steamed shrimp), some fried okra, and a peach vinegarette salad. Plenty of food for two. Everything was very good. But we were handed a menu with the price of the tower listed at $30. But then our server informed us this was an old... More

We went to Plums last night for an early dinner when we got into town. We were able to get in with no wait but when we left there was a wait. It's a quaint little place and it was a chilly night so no outside seating was available. Our group had the stuffed flounder, the gumbo, mahi tacos, and... More

Took a day trip to Beaufort, SC and tired to go to one of the 1, 2, 3 restaurants on Trip Advisor and none of them opened until at least 4:00 PM so we ducked into Plums, it seemed busy, so we thought why not. We were seated immediately, Meghan our server was prompt and took order. We asked if... More

My wife and I were there for lunch. We started with a plate of fried oysters that was great. They had a delicate coating that adhered to the plump oysters and did not detract from the flavor of the oysters. I had some delicious shrimp and grits and my wife enjoyed her chicken salad. The service was good and the... More

We had lunch here and scored an outdoor table at a time when they were pretty busy. Overall good experience for us but it is easy to see how they can fumble the ball at times. The menu offered several fresh choices as well as the usual fare. We tried, and liked a pecan craft beer. There are other craft... More

On our way back from Charleston's crowds and high prices, we were very positively surprised by the great ambiance, food and prices at Plums. Service was quick, our seafood dinner (especially the shrimp appetizers) were delicious, and the prices were very reasonable! After that, we enjoyed a stroll down the boardwalk between the restaurant and the waterfront, and had an... More
