Ribaut Social Club is a restaurant and social space for Beaufort locals and visitors to mingle over cocktails and impeccable regional cuisine.
Our aim is to capture the incorrigible spirit and convivial atmosphere of the original Ribaut Club, established at the Anchorage in 1891. In its heyday, the Club hosted performances, grand parties, dances and even gambling—a raucous getaway from buttoned-up social strictures of the time. Today, guests can cocktails and dinner with unrivaled water views or a sophisticated brunch surrounded by 300 years of Beaufort history.

    Wow. Simply amazing food, service, ambiance and view. We sat on the front porch and enjoyed a leisurely brunch. Service was spectacular and we can’t wait to return for dinner.

    As usual the food was cooked to perfection. The service was good. It was a special night in Beaufort so we had to wait 45 minutes to be seated even with our reservation. But we were well taken care of during the wait and the service was upbeat.

    We had dinner at Ribaut Social for my birthday. We were a party of three. Dinner was amazing! We ordered 3different entrees (scallops, swordfish and veal chop)and loved all of them. The scallops were the best we have ever had! The only disappointment was that there was no dessert. Apparently it did not come out to the chef’s satisfaction. It was fine though because we were all pretty full from dinner and we were only going to split one because it was my birthday. We will definitely go back! This is the best restaurant in Beaufort for a special occasion!

    Best in Beaufort! I've been searching for a great restaurant since I moved to this area - and finally found it. There are other local options that are 'fine' but not special. Ribault Social is special and deserves your business. There are limited tables but the menu is exceptional and the Chef could work anywhere in the world at a 5 star venue. It's that good. Treat yourself and go. You will be glad you did.

    This is our go-to restaurant for special occasions and for treating out of town guests to a wonderful Sunday brunch. The brunch menus always change, and always delight. Isabell takes care of us and the chef is inventive and talented. One of the best restaurants in Beaufort.

    This is by far the most expensive restaurant in our area. We were pleasantly surprised to find out the food is top-of-the-line. My lamb chops were excellent and the supporting dishes were also very creative. It is definitely a special occasion restaurant; expect to pay around $100 a person but you will not be disappointed.

    We came here to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. No one in the restaurant acknowledged our special occasion at any point in the night. The service was rushed although the restaurant was empty. It was quiet almost too quiet with no background music. The food was very good but not good enough to reflect the elevated prices and the sub par service. Overall disappointed and wish we would’ve had a better idea of what to expect.

    Really impressed by this chef! Creative and thoughtful dishes. Best meal we had in a 12 day stay in the area and a top of all time. Would love to see more vegetarian options. No bar and drinks and choices not great. Website says come early for drinks on upper porches but nobody seemed to know about that which made the start a bit awkward and disappointing. Could use more help but still a great experience.

    Exceptional meal and amazing experience! Sat on the front porch and what a wonderful setting - the Inn is beautiful and we appreciated a visit to a different time! We felt very at home and comfortable - the staff is very welcoming. Nice drink list along with decent beer selection. Had a cocktail and River Dog IPA. For starter, we had the seared foie gras appetizer which features local mushrooms. Every bite was awesome and didn’t want it to end. Almost licked the plate! Main courses were encrusted Halibut with mashed & vegetables and the Filet with roasted potatoes and vegetables. Both meals were delicious and very satisfying. Perfectly cooked and presented. Highly recommend and we will definitely be back! Highlight was a table visit from Chef Dan himself to ensure we enjoyed our meal. We didn’t kidnap him so the rest of you could enjoy your meals as well :-)

    It was a experience overall. I was disappointed by the menu as it had changed and did not have the options I wanted. Further, one of the appetizers was already sold out at 7pm (there were only three choices). However, food was very good and the outside seating was lovely.

    I’m going to give them one more chance. But as far as I can tell the chef prefers to do things their way rather than what the guest requests. The staff was a disappointment. A guest must book way in advance. I couldn’t align my schedule with a limited reservation schedule which makes the reservation all the more a “special event”. With a reservation for brunch, we were not greeted at the door, nor was there an inclination as to where to go once we crossed the threshold, I approached the staff at what looked like the staff “station” and was met with annoyance and I can assure I was respectful. Perhaps good hospitality is hit or miss, brunch isn’t their best time to visit, I can’t say for sure, so I will try again at a later date. There is so much potential for this venue to be a successful experience.

    Had the privilege of visiting beautiful Beaufort for my 47th birthday. Discovered the Ribaut from an article in my beloved Southern Living magazine. Unfortunately, they really misrepresented the "social club," making it sound like a much bigger, separate venue. All it was is a few tables at the Inn. We sat outside, and it is lovely, but not at all what was described as a "club dating back to Victorian times, where the aristocratic elite socialize and make merry."
