Decided to have the grouper, it was light and delicious, tastefully prepared and also beautifully served. Wine selection is good and the meal was a great success, totally enjoyed it.
Wonderful as always, adding upscale to the menu while keeping the originals available. Fabulous service
As in all of my other reviews of Breakwater it's one of the finest restaurants I've eaten in. Food and service are always first class.
My friends and I have mixed feelings about this place. Two of the three meals were super. The pork chop was like eating leather. They ran out of desserts, but no one bothered to tell us until we had finished our after dinner drinks (20-25 min). The owner/chef came to speak with us and comped our drinks and half of the pork chop meal, which was appropriate.
Nice restaurant with very good service and good food (lamb meatloaf). Yes, good...but not great. The best item was the pecan pie tartlet I had for dessert. It was outstanding, and although I vowed to eat only half, I didn’t follow through. I ate every single bite...it was that good!
We had not been there for a year of so and it exceeded our expectations. Excellent!!!
Great food with great service! Forgot about COVID while we were there too as the restaurant was nicely filled but not crowded. Thanks for a lovely time!
While we appreciate being able to eat outside, the chicken pesto pasta was just not very good.
Another dinner experience in the main dining area. Our waitress Lisa did not miss a beat, as usual. Very attentive, prompt, polite and so charming!! Food was exquisite and is very consistently good. We had their new appetizer to share with the table of four: flash fried chicken livers with demi glace, amazingly good!!! all four of 4 were very pleased with our choices: my husband had a perfectly cooked beef filet, I had delectable salmon w/ med. veges, and our guests had the grouper and the crab cake with haricots verts. All super delicious!! My favorite in town, and I keep coming back....
Three of us had dinner at Breakwater's new outdoor dining venue. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Started with drinks (excellent wine and you can't beat the martini's) and conversation and moved onto to dinner with two in the party having tomato pie with a salad and I having the grouper, all was outstanding. Juliet gave us excellent service. I applaud BW for thinking out of the box during these unusual and trying times by having this outdoor dining area. If anything I would add another tent and expand it. It was a very warm day and would recommend getting there as the sun is going down to beat the heat as after the sun went down it became much more comfortable. But, hey its summer in the South! Would highly recommend for good drink, food and service!!
The food was very good. The service was very good.
I guess I miss the hustle and bustle and background noise. Maybe one day soon
The food and service were great. We will be going back !
We made the reservation because we had a gift certificate to use— points from Open Table. They were to be worth $50 but we were only going to get $25.what do we do with the card.
Waitress said we could not use it.
Our party of 4 had crab cakes, grouper, salmon and scallops. All were excellent. Chopped salad is a great way to start. This was our 4th time to dine in and we have always loved the food and quiet atmosphere. Highly recommend.
Great food and cocktails. Server was friendly and attentive. Felt like they were taking Covid precautions seriously.
Great atmosphere, delicious food!
Visiting from out of town. Food and service were great, plan to return next time we are in the area!
Wife’s food was excellent(fried seafood appetizer) my dinner on the other hand was very disappointing. The chicken looked like it was a prepackaged chicken made from parts. Reminded me of a large chicken McNugget. This dish has always been my favorite when it was a real chicken breast this was disappointing
My favorite Beaufort Restaurant!
Lovely place, great experience. Great food, we had the fried chicken and the lamb, both amazing!! Knowledgeable and attentive staff. Overall we liked this place a lot and will return next time we’re in town.

Super. Lisa is the best!
Safe Clean Welcoming.
Great spot! We love their pimento cheese bacon burger and, well, pretty much everything else on the menu.
Great as always
Went for overnight trip to Beaufort to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant actually took us in ahead of our reservation time, and did not disappoint! My husband had the fried chicken with the Nashville sauce- he loved it! I had the pesto chicken and the sauce, with the vegetables was amazing. Would highly recommend!
Consistency in service, tastiness of food, and overall presentation, and appropriate serving sizes are always on the mark. We have eaten here for years and have never been disappointed. The guests we introduce to Breakwater always thank us for the introduction.
We absolutely Love Breakwater in Beaufort. When we are in town it’s a favorite for our family. From the appetizers to the after dinner drinks it’s always perfect. All Of the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable of their menus
Great dinner. Was very nice atmosphere.
I got the lamb meatloaf and it was amazing!! I’d go back anyday!
my wife had the chicken
and I had the lamb meatloaf
tender and well seasoned
perfect setting for a romantic evening
Great meal and excellent service! Social distance practiced, and all of staff wearing masks.
From start to finish the restaurant was excellent. Friendly attentive staff, well conceived and executed meal. We really enjoyed the experience and highly recommend if you like great food!
Vacation meal! Local seafood with great food and beautiful sunsets!!! Busy and Covid makes for a lot of waiting for tables!
Good, service & ambience were all superb! Recommend to everyone!
We had the Wine Room for a group 10. We could make all the noise we wanted without bothering other guest. Our server was amazing! Funny, on her game and knowledgeable. The food was perfect too. Excellent.
This is a must do place every time we visit Beaufort! The food and service was amazing!
The filet mignon was incredible. The she crab soup was incredible. The scallops were incredible. What a wonderful dinner!
The main dining room is quiet and elegant. The side room is a little louder due to acoustics, so chose it for a quiet dinner. The salads and filet are delicious! We really enjoyed our meal here. It’s a little pricey, but the food is superb.
We went on recommendation from our B and B owner. They didn’t disappoint. The food was fantastic as well as the drinks. Everything was priced well. The only disappointment was that we didn’t go back the next night. We will be back the next time we are in Beaufort!
Great restaurant - will go back again. We had he grouper and it was delicious!
