Food is fine. The mixed cocktails are great. And our server was fantastic, super friendly fellow. Definitely need to eat outside on the deck overlooking the river. Also nice they have shade umbrellas to avoid hot sunshine.

The atmosphere is beautiful on the dining terrace by the bay. This might be a nice place to stop in for a drink but I'm sorry to say the food is not good at all. I was looking forward to trying the "King Neptune" seafood...More

Lunch in the old Beaufort Bank building on Bay street with friendly wait staff, attentive service and a very nice Caesar salad, tasty dressing, house made croutons, topped with fresh shrimp. My companion ordered a panini that he very much enjoyed.

excellent panini sandwiches right on Bay Street almost next door to the starting point for many tours. Reasonable prices. Don't miss this place when taking tours.

Birthday lunch for a party of ten. Food scored four stars. Service scored five stars. We ate outside on the patio where the view of the waterfront is spectacular. Will definitely return.

I saw this place online. It was pretty nice. We sat outside. The only thing was the birds will bug you. We had the margarita pizza and salad and it was delicious. The view is pretty good.

Our first experience at Panini's was not that great. Service was OK. We shared a Caesar salad and Baked Ziti. Portions of both were large. Salad was good but the Ziti was dry and the cheese topping was gooey and tough. Couple of nights later...More

Great Visit to the waterfront area in Beaufort SC. This was some of the best brick oven pizzas my wife and I have ever had The outside seating is great. This restaurant is very affordable and won't kill your budget.

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
