We are so sorry to see Breakwater Greenville go. It filled a casual fine dining niche on the West End that fit below Halls and American Grocery. We'll be sure to visit in Beaufort.

WE had 4 dishes and 2 were great and 2 we're mediocre. Our server referred to one of the dishes as being "rolled like a cigar" which we both found quite unappetizing. We ordered the dish, despite this description and it was disappointing. Recommend the scallops and the tuna tartare. Martini was great!

Food varied from Excellent (grouper special) to just OK (Mahi). Great service, nice atmosphere, valet parking, but expect better than just OK for the price. Will go again, but won't order Mahi next time.

The hostess was polite and the server did a good job explaining the specials and delivering the drinks. We chose the special steak and shrimp meal, and though good, were a bit overpriced. For some reason we were not originally credited with our visit, but most assuredly was there. We'll be back in the future.

The food and service were reasonably good. Yet, no one at the table was particularly impressed with their entrées. The ambience was nice though not special. Overall, I simply wasn't impressed. For the prices, I would expect more. Not a bad meal, but there are better meals/experiences to be had for less.

love the new small plates.
We brought our friends who are very picky eaters and always ready with a restaurant critique. They praised everything.
We were pleased that they liked it. Good job!!

Service was very good. According to the food, my soup was too salty while the entree was excellent.

I would recommend that a door or screen put up where "employees only" enter the kitchen. It's messy and dirty. I wish I asked to move, it ruins my dinning experience at Breakwater.
