Lunch with a friend, everything was perfect. We were seated outside and were able to enjoy the food and talk. Not a place to go if you are in a rush, which we were not. We both got the house burger, which was fabulous. Can't wait to go back and try out other items on the meu....such as the turkey and avocado. I would highly recommend for any occasion.

We went for Sunday brunch. Definitely reserve a table ahead of time! The food was delicious and the prices were very good. The Waterview was wonderful. The only tricky part was parking. It took a while to get a spot but there is valet parking if you prefer.

The food was very salty. The steak was overdone. For the price, it wasn’t worth it.

The charcuterie board was really good, Browne cabernet wine was nice too. But that's it. The windows need cleaning, ambience was great, the bar looked inviting, however, the main entrees were bland. I had the pork chop, good cook but nothing special, no flavor. The potato soufle was awful, no flavor it tasted like left over potatoes. The collard greens were too sweet and again very bland. My husband had the Mahi, same experience. Menu too small, which I understand is due to covid. But a couple of seafood dishes doesn't warrant it to be defined as a seafood restaurant. It was almost empty and we weren't allowed to seat outside. Overall, I will not be back.

Great view, great food and great service. It will become more 'regular' dining as we all move forward.. Am tempted by the very good selection of 'whiskies' at the bar!

Last night of prime rib wasn’t that good. My family has been there multiple times and the food is usually 4+ stars but service has always been poor. One repeat waitress at the conclusion of our meal approached my wife and stated I hope you are not wanting dessert I am swamped. Bartenders are not very knowledgeable, drinks are not horrible but choices of garnishments lack severely.

Everything was phenomenal, from the staff to the food. We started off with the Pork Belly and Cesar Salad. Incredible. Our entree we got the New York Strip. Cooked perfectly. The sides are large enough to be shared. We had the 4 cheese macaroni, asparagus, and the Parmesan Risotto. We had an awesome time.

Totally enjoyed our visit! Steak was cooked to perfection! The sides were large enough to share & should be mentioned to first-timers. Our entree came too quickly & we didn't get to enjoy our appetizer. We were expecting a relaxed evening & the weather seemed to encourage the staff to get food out quickly as they couldn't seat people outside. Otherwise, we totally enjoyed & even made another reservation!

The restaurant is by waterway with nice view. The quality of food is decent, but nothing special. Nothing on the entire menu is gluten free, from appetizer to dessert, not even GF crackers with cheese platters. Very disappointed as gluten free is special request at reservation. Neither online menu and restaurant call back mentioned GF is unavailable.

Great date night or celebratory place. The ambience is beautiful, inside and outside--waterfront! Service was good and attentive, food was good. The Monday night prime rib night is a great option and the smoked wahoo spread is a fantastic appetizer. This is a classy, though relaxed establishment....and open table was perfect for reservations.

We went to 32North to celebrate my Dad's birthday. We had a nice view of the water from our table. The food and drink were very good. The staff was friendly and helpful. My only complaint was the level of noise in the restaurant. It was so loud, we could hardly have a conversation and hear each other. The waitress couldn't even hear us ordering. The acoustics really need to be worked on, otherwise a very nice place.

This was our second time eating here, but I don't think we will return again (at least not for Brunch). It took 20 minutes before I could wave someone (perhaps a manager) over to our table. We placed a drink order with her and she never returned once. We were shocked that she didn't at least bring us waters. I did see her hanging out with another table just chatting after she took our order. Drinks took at least another 15 minutes and were brought by our new server. We also requested a booth (as we had a baby with us) and we were given a table in the middle of the restaurant. The food is good and our server was friendly, but he was overwhelmed and didn't appear to be getting much support from managers.

We stayed at the Beaufort Hotel, and the restaurant is a part of the facility. We had dinner and breakfast. When the weather is nice, dining al fresco is an option. We did that for breakfast, and we were treated to dolphins playing in the water outside the resort. The noise level is quiet unless there is a boat passing or launching.

Our dinner was indoors and delightful. Delicious crab cakes for an appetizer. My husband had the grilled fish of the day over rice and was pleased with it. I had the BEST shrimp and grits with red eye gravy that I have ever had. It was full of more shrimp than I could count. Delicious.

Everyone was friendly and professional, from receptionist to waitstaff to management.

If we return to the area, we would definitely dine there again.

Someone here sure knows how to cook!!!! Food was outstanding, couldn’t find anything to complain about if I wanted to. Good size portions, wonderful atmosphere, nice eating pace...not rushed at all...just relax and enjoy your meal and drinks. At the table for desserts we had cheesecake and mango sorbet, both were perfect. If you are a sorbet person (or even if you’re not) the mango sorbet was like none I had ever had, like biting into a juicy mango 🤗

A bit pricey, and for some service may be a tad slow, but worth the time and price!

This was our first visit to this restaurant. We ordered an assortment of appetizers and a salad and dessert. The shrimp appetizer was our favorite and the scallops were delicious as well. The bread pudding with bourbon ice cream was yummy. We plan to return and try some of the entrees. Our server was pleasant and very helpful with suggestions. No complaints there.

The only cons were the unripe tomato on the caprese salad plus the salad dressing could have been more flavorful.
