We sat outside on the dock it was a beautiful view I had the Beaufort Benedict it was absolutely delicious crab cakes were perfect eggs were amazing. Service was great we were the only 2 that chose to sit outside but the server was very attendant and never missed a beat. Only downside no military discount.

We ate here for dinner and would not recommend it. The bread was old. The shrimp appetizer was nice, but both fish dishes were bland and not tasty. The best part of the meal were the collard greens. Go elsewhere for dinner.

I love the location and setup of 34° North. We arrived for brunch on Sunday at noon and there were quite a lot of other patrons but we were still able to enjoy a private experience. Service was great as always!

Great experience! Plan to return for future special occasions.
Of note: the Beaufort Benedict was delicious: poached eggs on crab cakes, plus yellow grits.

New Years Eve. Food was great as usual. Service great. We were drinking champagne and eating dessert at midnight. Only complaint is no one started a countdown. So we missed midnight by a few seconds. We kept our champagne and did our own countdown at 1am on the docks. Priceless.

Everyone was pleased with their entres. The place is both chic and casual with great views of the water. But it is noisy so folks with hearing problems do suffer.

Overall good experience. Ambiance was very gooo. So was the service. Food good, but not compared to pricing. My side of collards were hard to eat. Stems left in and some gritty substance when chewing. I’m used to different way they were prepared.

Reservation made weeks ago / said we received last table - it was in the bar area and near reception area. Disappointed in that.
Food was awesome. Service ok as restaurant was very busy.

What a great dinner! We needed a last-minute reservation after our original plans were canceled and grabbed the last reservation available. From the French onion soup to the Mahi Mahi and pork dishes, with excellent cocktails and a fantastic bourbon bread pudding, every bite was a celebration. We had heard mixed reviews and were pleasantly surprised. We had the sweetest server and the festive atmosphere was great for our impromptu New Year’s Eve dinner. Our only complaint were the insane markups on the bottle wine list, but we stuck to cocktails and glasses and were quite happy.

We stay at the Beaufort Hotel several times a year. Our little happy place. The restaurant has always been top notch. My absolute favorite is breakfast on the deck overlooking the water. The food has always been amazing, hot and priced extremely well.
A cozy spot in a chair by the fireplace while sipping on a beverage and enjoying one of their many delicious desserts, late night is most delightful too.
Thank you for pushing through these rough times and continuing to wow us with ever single visit.

We like the food here - but every time we come, the service is not good.
The waitress doesn’t check on the table much. Doesn’t clear the plates when done.

Very nice ambiance, great Christmas decoration & impressive service.

Their are Front Desk could be more efficient in seating us though. They took too long to have us seated despite the restaurant being less than half occupied.

There were not many people there which certainly assisted having a low noise level. We had made reservations and were taken to a window table with a lovely view. Our wait staff person was friendly, efficient, and checked on us appropriately to see if we had any needs. We had a fun, relaxing and delicious meal.

Beef came undercooked with old mashed potatoes that were crusty. Green beans were undercooked as well. Sent meal back and still came back undercooked with same potatoes and green beans. Never eaten here before and highly disappointed. Server never came back to check on us but because of holiday they added a 20% gratuity automatically. Had to flag down servers and manager to get help once meal arrived. Sent food back again and just asked for soup. Soup took 6 minutes to arrive and was bland. No flavor to it at all.

Atmosphere was elegant, yet energetic and bright. Lots of windows, gorgeous view, everything was beautiful. The food was incredible too - more NYC-sized portions, but each one created with care and details to quality and taste. It's a meal I appreciated very much, and my family had a great time. It was a little loud in there, as it's a very open area adjacent to the lounge, which was fine for me but a little hard for my older parents to hear. Everything was so amazing, this did not impact our incredible experience one bit though.

Christmas Eve Dinner at 34*. It was just lovely. The ambiance is calm and sophisticated. Our server was extraordinary, kind and attentive and professional but not aloof. The food was just fabulous. We had crab cakes and pork belly which were beautifully plated and delicious. Dinner came quickly; we hadn't finished our appetizers, but it all worked out. Mahi Mahi and Grouper and we'd order either one again. Nicely prepared, delicious and fresh. The restaurant was crowded but didn't feel noisy or like we were packed in. I can't wait to go again!
