Fabulous food and bar; very festive especially considering a Monday night. Waiter could have been a little more attentive, but overall a great evening!
Really good service, we were greeted by an extremely friendly and welcoming hostess and everyone working seemed to be enjoying themselves. The food was great and the special, Red Grouper was amazing. Thank you to the staff at Breakwater!
We made last minute reservations for 6pm. The atmosphere was nice. The food was extremely overpriced. We had peanut butter cake for desserts it was a very skimpy serving. We were very disappointed.
Good service good food cannot ask for anything better than that....
Our dinner experience was wonderful! Wait staff was very friendly and attentive. Food was delicious !
Food was delicious. Service was ok…our waitress seemed to forget about us.
Great food and service. Worth a trip to Beaufort
I have been a fan of Breakwater for years. Unfortunately, the food experience is in decline.
Our server Juliette was delightful. We really enjoyed the meat and cheese board it is out of this world. We enjoyed a wonderful night out.
It was a rather surprising experience. Upon reading comments and ratings from patrons I was expecting an above average meal. Actually I was expecting an excellent meal. My crab soup was served at a tepid temperature, the flank steak was also served "less than hot", and although it should be medium rare and sliced thinly to avoid flank steak's tendency toward toughness, it was not. My wife's snapper dish was over salted.
Michelle was great!
Great food and ambience! The meat and cheese board was delicious and we will definitely be back!
Excellent food, cooked perfectly as ordered.
We had fried oysters which were excellent followed by the shrimp and scallops - outstanding! We walked from our B&B in about 5 minutes! Highly recommend!
Food was absolutely excellent. My husband and I both had the grouper and thought it was outstanding.
Chicken pot pie and Hamburger steak dishes were delicious.
The food was really great. The service by our waitress, Michelle was really great.
The hostess at the door was rude and the bartender was also rude. Once we were finally seated, the meal and service was amazing.
We always bring out of town company to Breakwater. We know they will always enjoy it as we do.
Birthday dinner for my wife. Just excellent all the way around. Superb innovative food and “just right” serves ce from server Liam
Hostess and waitress were very kind.
Good good! Very accommodating g chef. A favorite of ours in Beaufort.
We were very happy with our dining experience! The bar service was good, and the atmosphere was very sophisticated. We had the fried shrimp for appetizer which was wonderful! Followed by Shrimp and Scallops, DELICIOUS! Service was great! We will be going back!
Good was excellent. Portions generous. Service Staff fantastic
New menu is great. Did not disappoint. The Tile fish special was very good. Also had the Brazilian beef which was nicely presented. Good selection of wine.
Appetizers were great. I thought the entree prices were a tad high. I was disappointed that my husband didn’t get some recognition (a free dessert or drink) for his birthday.
Whole experience exceptional from the quality of the food (for the $$) and service. Best overall experience we’v had in a long time.
Our meals of Argentinian beef and fried chicken Alfredo were both marvelous as were the stuffed mushrooms. Service was as always professional and seamless.
It is our "go to" place for many years now !
Great meal. We started with the Pimento Cheese plate and the Fried Green Tomatoes. Both were perfectly made and went well together. I had the Catch of the day, Grilled Tilefish. I'd never had Tilefish before, but will look for it from now on. Excellent dinner.
Excellent meal. The strip steak was grilled perfectly and tile fish special was simply awesome. Nice wine list and the bottles were reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend.
This restaurant has an excellent serving team. Attentive, available, and well trained. Food excellent- always!!!! Love our Breakwater!!
Although the atmosphere and service were great, my steak was chewy snd didn’t have much taste. My companion I referred fried shrimp and enjoyed the meal.
We had a lovely evening at Breakwater to celebrate a birthday. The service was absolutely outstanding. Our waitress was very attentive and accommodating. When our first two dishes came out, we had remembered we forgot to tell the waitress about a change in the third dish due to dietary issues, so we told the young gentleman who brought the first two dishes. He literally ran to the kitchen to let the staff know of the correction, and the third dish was brought out, as ordered, a few moments later. We were quite impressed. The food was delicious, fresh, gorgeous. A wonderful experience at one of our favorite restaurants in Beaufort.
Delicious food and great service. I do feel like some bread should be served while diners are waiting for their food, especially if they are having cocktails. Other than that, it was a great experience.
Great food but a bit pricey. Good service. Nice atmosphere.
Better than expected! The place has three distinct dinner rooms that provides the guest different vibe or ambiance. Cocktails were amazing and the food was excellent. We are glad to have chosen this place. Upscale for Beaufort but not snobby. We will definitely come back
Breakwater is always a must for dinner when visiting Fripp Island. The food and service are a 10 out of 10.
I cannot say enough good things about the food, the service or the ambiance. This was a celebratory dinner for my friend’s retirement and I couldn’t have asked for a better celebration venue. I would highly recommend. We
