1) Yes Thai Indeed - absolutely the BEST Thai food I've ever had, and I've eaten at a lot of Thai restaurant. Recommended dishes: Main dishes: Pad Thai, Panang Curry, Siam Chicken, Thai Basil Beef (if you like spicy). Appetizers: Excellent spring rolls! Try the meaty rolls, my favorite! Wine selection: Seven Daughters Red Blend is a great value! If you like Creme Brulee, theirs is better than any I've had in France. The secret is YTI torches brown sugar on top. Located at 2127 Boundary Street immediately to the right of KMart. (843) 986-1185
2) Boundary Street Cafe - Open for breakfast and lunch, Wednesday through Sunday. So good, when you pull up on a Monday or Tuesday and see that they are closed, you are SO disappointed! Ok, so this little restaurant has the BEST SHRIMP AND GRITS I've EVER had!! And I've been eating them all over the South for over 40 years. You will remember their shrimp and grits and drool when you're remembering them! But their sandwiches and salads, literally everything, is SO consistently great! Located at 1209 Boundary Street, Beaufort, SC. Don't miss it!! (843) 379-1811
3) Smokin' Planks - All kinds of great barbeque! Love their brisket, had it a week after having brisket in Texas - Smokin' Planks was even better! And try their unique citrus barbeque sauce, you'll dream of it and be back for more! Located in Port Royal at 914 Paris Avenue in Port Royal, SC, just a 5 minutes drive from Bay Street but SO worth it! (843) 522-0322
4) Q on Bay - If you want great barbeque right on Bay Street, this is the place. Had not tried their ribs until recently, but their ribs were AWESOME! Great beers on tap too! Located at 822 Bay Street, Beaufort, SC. (843) 524-7771
5) Old Bull Tavern - Great pub feel, right off of Bay Street. Dinner only, but make a reservation because they book up fast. Innovative "gastro pub" that has great dishes and now has incredible pizza too! And the only restaurant I've ever been to that has wine on tap that is actually great wine! Give it a try. Located at 205 West Street, Beaufort, SC. (843) 379-2855
6) Plums - this is a great choice for lunch! They've added additional seating out on the riverfront. Love the Curry Chicken Salad Wrap. Great burgers. Plums for lunch is a great choice! Located at 904 Bay Street, Beaufort, SC. (843) 525-1946
(These are just a few of my favorite restaurants in Beaufort.
