Breakwater Restaurant & Bar - Beaufort
Chef Lang and Chef Shaw's version of 'New Southern Cuisine' contains the past, present, and future all at once. Younger, lighter, and fresher than traditional Southern 'Old School' deep-fried fare while acknowledging culinary influences from the world beyond. Exceptional tapas menu, outstanding fresh local seafood and produce.
The bar at Breakwater exudes a lively energy with locals and travelers alike. Exceptional wine list with 75 wines by the glass.

hostess was quite flustered on our arrival and seemed unsure of herself. Food was good, server was good . . . an interminable wait to get our check. The same thing with the check happened the last time we were there.
portion size way too small, had lambchops (qty. of 2) way too little for an entrée.
Great place. Excellent service and the food never disappoints! my go-place for an overall great experience
Food was awesome. Waitstaff very attentive. Everyone had a great time.
Great for any occasion, been there many times, always superb food, great friendly service.
Another great Breakwater experience with friends. The menu is creative and varied. It was our first Taco Tuesday...only one choice and tasty, but nothing special...will try again! Everything else we had (soup special, tuna, sliders, and more) was outstanding! Highly-recommended!
We enjoyed our meal and received good service. Thank you very much
Had Scottish Salmon. Didn't have much flavor. Wife had Lamb chops which were very good
Biscuits were burnt on the bottom. Vegan meatloaf dry and lacking taste of anything but bread and spice. A big party was being served in the front area and it seemed that less attention was paid to our food.
Great food at good price. Glad you’re doing lunch!
This was the first time we'd been to Breakwater for lunch and we loved it! Creative cuisine using local ingredients. Highly-recommended!
It was my wife birthday. They gave a nice table. Since we arrive the service wa superb. The fresh catch was a very nice portion
Always wonderful! Breakwater never disappoints. Wonderful food and drink, evolving menu - great ambience. Our 'go to' place!
Amazing service and food. Worth stopping for lunch or dinner at.
Great service! A little pricey. Good food, not exceptional.
Fabulous food and atmosphere. Highly, highly recommend!
Best hummus we ever had. Made with butter beans. We ordered some to take home too. Had the scallops over risotto. Amazing scallops and the addition of fresh corn kernals to the risotto elevated the dish tremendously.
Company came to visit & wanted to share our favorite restaurant. Food was great, but waitress wasn’t attentive. We needed water, another round of drinks and never checked on us to make sure everything was wonderful.
Food was great! I will still eat there just hope for a different waitress in the bar area.
Mom’s Birthday. Great Food, staff and atmosphere. Don’t miss the opportunity to dine at this wonderful restaurant.
Great lunch. Be sure to try the pecan tart with bourbon ice cream.
Very good service. Chicken flavor was wonderful, mashed potatoes ok/a little bland, loved the texture of the green beans but strings should have been removed. Food was not as hot as we would have liked and portion was VERY small for the price. Would recommend but caveat on the prices.
We hadn't been to Breakwater for some time but took advantage of visitors to make a return visit. All enjoyed their meal -- one visitor said the grouper (nightly special) was the best fish he'd ever had! Having a selection of small plates was welcome for the smaller appetite, particularly since we enjoyed a couple delicious appetizers before the meal. The service was exemplary. Unfortunately, I don't remember our server's name, but she was very professional and knowledgeable about the specials. We look forward to going back.
Were not greeted for 15 minutes, had to say something before anyone can to he table, poor management
Delicious innovative cuisine
The service is excellent and the food is always very good, our favorite restaurant in Beaufort and our go to place for great food, ambience and friendly, efficient service.
Our meals were delicious! This restaurant is as good as the famous restaurants in Charleston. The crab cakes and pimento cheese burger are not to be missed.
Been here several times. Never disappointed. Good service, taste and value.
Lots of gluten free options which is rare and great service.
Wonderful meal with lots of options for everyone. I enjoyed my small plate of shrimp pasta...perfect serving & delicious!
Another great meal at Breakwater. Scallops and risotto were delicious. The surf and turf special was prepared just right. Crab cake was a little spicy and yummy and the strip was just the right size and prepared perfectly. As always service was nice and our server was very pleasant to speak with. The ice cream dessert was just right.
WE always look forward to dining at Breakwater. Best restaurant in Beaufort.
Breakwater's food is always delicious. The service could not have been more courteous or attentive. , the noise level was fine. It is just great for a good meal in congenial atmosphere. I will go back often
We took a group of 7 to dinner at Breakwater. The service was phenomenal; our server was Jennifer, and she was excellent. The food was extraordinary - preparation and presentation. We vacation near this restaurant and stop by for dinner every time we are in town.
Great dinner experience! Well banced menus for food, drink andnbest of all dessert!
The first table was in a room that just echoes and magnified the noise of people talking at the other table. There were only four people and just normal level of talking but the room needs acoustical help
Very good. Excellent service and unique food. We enjoyed it very much.
Boat trip stay over in downtown Beaufort and Breakwater didn’t disappoint. Great food, excellent service, highly recommend.
Had a reservation for supper to catch up with three friends. Environment was just right, food was delish (loved the blue cheese from Clemson!), fairly priced, server was very attentive. Would definitely come back and recommend to friends! Thank you!
Loved our waitress Lisa! Had the Water Festival Special Cocktail but with vodka - so so yummy!! Food was amazing!!
Yes we were going to be in Beaufort for vacation and as my wife was checking out places to eat she came across Breakwater and thought it sounded like good place to try. She made reservation for Friday June 8 at 7 pm. We walked in and were immediately impressed. We waited for our table in bar for just short while before we were seated. Staff was outstanding in every way. Our dinner was great. Thank you for everything and we will definitely return next time in Beaufort.
