We stopped in just for drinks at the bar and to take a quick look at the football scores. The owner and the bartender were super friendly. We enjoyed our short visit and plan to return on our next trip to Beaufort.

We went on a whim. We ordered from the tapas menu. If you like bland or low on flavors/seasonings this is NOT the place for you. We ordered the lamb, shrimp w/bacon, bacon wrapped scallops, Italian sausage, teriyaki beef, stuffed mushrooms, and the garlic beef....More

Amazing restaurant on a back street in Beaufort. Our server Sloan was awesome. She was friendly and quick with service. I can't say enough about this food they have a large tapas menu and everything was wonderful. You don't want to miss this place.
