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.

    Small dinning room in historic downtown inn. Service was very good with thorough explanations about each item on the menu as the menu changes daily. Some will think it is expensive but the portions are very large. We brought home plenty for another meal. Very nice for special occasions.

    By far the best brunch I’ve ever had. The entire experience was fantastic. Staff was friendly, greeting us with mimosas while allowing us to explore the premises. We had French toast and crab cake eggs Benedict and both dishes were amazing. The only regret we have is not dining there sooner. We look forward to exploring their dinner soon.

    Wonderful dining experience, from the ambience to the quality and quantity of food. The setting and location are both amazing. Wine prices are reasonable, with high prices for the food. The food is done so well it’s well worth the price. Enjoyable evening was worth the trip to beautiful Beaufort.

    Food and service were very good. Unfortunately, our table was near the front door. It was a chilly evening and there was a lot of activity through the entrance making it a bit uncomfortable. We expected to be in the normal dining area which is protected. It was Valentine’s Day and the volume necessitated the seating plan. We were unlucky. It would be beneficial to have a restroom on the main floor.

    A lovely, cozy respite with a good friend visiting Beaufort from out of town for a few days. We enjoyed a wonderful meal, each selecting the night’s Mahi-mahi special, and shared a delicious beet salad and a bit of chocolate decadence as our “night-cap” choice. The dining venue is particularly inviting, whether dining inside our on the front porch. We enjoyed a great evening catching up with one another while also enjoying a truly delicious dinner.

    The house is gorgeous and filled with history. Our reservation was at 5:30 so the noise level was quite low but as people arrived later in our meal, we both commented about how loud it had gotten. Just be aware of that. I guess the menu is different each day, determined by the chef. Some menu items were non-starters for us, like a 20 ounce cut of meat! Had it been a reasonable size, 8-10 oz, I would have tried one of those entrees but, truthfully, that portion size is rather obscene. That forced us into making other choices, scallops for my wife and crab encrusted mahi mahi for me. Serving sizes were generous but not too much. Both my wife and I thought the food was fabulous; flavorful, and presented exquisitely. We loved the experience and the meal but it is quite pricey and not a place we would/could frequent regularly. Definitely a special occasion destination.

    This is an intimate dining room in a classic B&B located in the historic part of Beaufort. About ten tables. Perfect ambience if you are looking for an elegant dining experience. They know how to make an excellent Martini, and the wine selection is ample and served properly. For the starter we got the soup, which was outstanding. The Halibut main was cooked and seasoned perfectly. We were too filled up for dessert, but the chef sent out a small sweet with a single small candle to help us celebrate a birthday. We look forward to returning for another special occasion.

    Dined on the porch which was quiet and lovely even in Dec. Portion size a bit too large. The steak's blue cheese topping was overpowering. The pork chop was excellent. The waiter was not as attentive as the wait staff for the other outdoor set of guests. Ours was a young man who seemed to be filling in. He did not make recommendations or seem as conversant with the menu as the other wait staff person. Only one dessert option. Heard others ask for recommendations of where else in town to get a dessert. I understand that all components are made by one chef, but having more than one dessert option would be welcomed.
