Extremely busy but worth the wait. Hubby had oyster poboy and I had shrimp...both super fresh and dee-licious. If it is too crowded, get food to go and walk 20 feet over to the benches, sit, and eat while you soak up the harbor view....More

We especially liked the patio at Panini's even though they have lots of room for indoor dining as well. I loved the shrimp salad and had it a several time during my time in Beaufort. They had a varied menu and good service.

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
