    Our group of 6 were all pleased with the restaurant! We ordered brussels sprouts, shrimp and grits starters as well as a Caesar salad. Entrées ordered, included the maple, seared scallops, the filet, the elk and the shrimp pasta. Each and everyone of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Our waitress was very patient with us because we were unsure of what we wanted at first. She guided us And made suggestions helpful! The noise level was energetic, but it was just what we were looking for because we can be loud group when we all get together. It was our first time there and we would definitely come back when we’re in Beaufort next.

    Ashley, We had a fabulous dinner last night. It was such a treat to be back at our favorite restaurant. Perfect timing with the new menu too! Shari had the filet and I had the elk. The presentation and flavors on both were outstanding. We especially enjoyed Lara’s new twist on our favorite cocktail- the Manhattan. New favorite drink for sure! Steve

    The Caesar salad was not a Caesar salad at all. A very poor substitute for such a nice restaurant. The other entrees were good though.

    This restaurant has great food but it also has a cheery wait staff that is very knowledgeable about the specials and the cocktail list. The atmosphere is quiet, especially compared to other restaurants close by, the seats and table heights are perfect! The place is very clean. We took some "foodies" with us, who had never been there before and they impressed!"

    The best meal I have had in this area - and I have been here since 2003. Everything was delicious. Main course portion sizes are a bit small. If you are hungry get an appetizer and plan to have desert too. The baked brie was a very good appetizer for a table of four. The fish was fantastic (really!), but a small portion. I left full after sharing a slice of cheesecake with my wife.

    Amazing as always! Awesome food and drinks. Our plates are always empty at the end of the meal. Much prefer the outdoor space as when the restaurant becomes full, it can be a bit noisy and you can’t enjoy the jazz music playing in the background.

    We shared 4 appetizers between the 2 of us and it was the perfect amount and variety. The Brussel spouts were our top pick, and the French onion soup, tomato tart, and shrimp & grits were also fabulous! Can't wait to go back and sit outside when it's warmer!

    Lobster bisque was full of delicious flavor and pieces of lobster. Salads were very tasty! The filet with truffle potatoes and grilled asparagus was excellent, tender with flavors that made it all awesome. The scallops with pork belly and grits and a glaze over the top was absolutely delicious. We wish that we had shared one creme brulee after all of the other food but both vanilla and carmel were wonderful.

    My husband I went there for our first time and fell in love with the ambiance as soon as we walked in. Considering it was originally a house they have transformed it into a beautiful relaxing place to enjoy a great dinner and cocktails. The server which was also the bartender was great. I cannot remember her name, however I do remember her Agave Pear Margarita that was delicious. The food was just as good. We enjoyed the Brussels sprouts for our appetizer along with the lobster bisque ( mouthwatering ) for our main course he had the nightly feature which was the prime rib that was cooked perfectly and I enjoyed the Short Rib ( melt In your mouth )! As for dessert we had the caramel crème brûlée and the baguettes, again both were perfect! Thanks for a wonderful night.

    We had a wonderful New Year's Eve dinner. The food was very good- we started with Lobster Bisque and Shrimp and Grits, then I had the Elk special and my husband had the Cassoulet. We finished with Beignets. Our server Amber was professional and knowledgeable. Our best dinner in Beaufort on this trip!

    We ate at the Blue Moon last night. It was superb!!! We had the fish of the day and the shrimp with ham and pasta, and it was amazing. It is so much fun when you go out to eat and the food is so good, that you don't mind paying for it!!
