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.

                        Outstanding food - the chef is superb. Excellent service as well. The restaurant inside is charming, but I didn't like the outside area as much. Not as attractive, and it overlooks a road that can be busy/noisy.

                        Our second Thanksgiving dinner at this wonderful Inn! It’s our new tradition because the food is delicious and the view second to none! Service was impeccable. Isabel is an amazing hostess. In. Owners dropped in and spoke to every table. Just lovely :)

                        Exhorbitant increase in prices since last visit! $95 steak. And who wants a 48oz (4 lb) piece of meat. We’ll never return.

                        The chef is a master and the cuisine creative and presented perfectly. The farm salad and squash bisque starters were wonderful. And the seafood cakes (crab, Seabass and lobster) and seared U-8 scallops entrees were to die for. They have an excellent wine list and the service is impeccable.

                        Been passed this mansion for over 60 years but never thought I would be eating there. Our 40th anniversary diner was the best and thanks to the staff at the Ribaut Social Club for making it that way. I would recommend this place for the romantic evening of a life time. The filet was outstanding and our complements to the chef.

                        I was exhausted and my cocktail was perfect and my server was professional and friendly. The menu choices were excellent and this was a wonderful sophisticated introduction to low country cuisine. Dining on the front porch watching the sky turn pink made everything special. Wonderful service, beautiful ambiance and absolutely perfect sea bass

                        Chef Daniel prepared wonderful, creative dishes with high quality ingredients. The kitchen produced food that was on time, complex, very attractively plated, and properly prepared. He worked around my wife’s significant dietary issues without diminishing the quality of the dishes or the enjoyment. His wife Misty was a pleasure to talk with, and did a nice job pairing wines with our dishes. The ambiance is exemplary. This was a wonderful dining experience, the best we’ve experienced for higher end dining in Beaufort.

                        A birthday dinner for my husband, this lovely restaurant did not disappoint. A beautiful setting on the veranda for a wonderful meal. The chilled pea soup with crab was excellent as was the grouper, bursting with flavors. The veal chop was cooked perfectly and all dishes were very well presented.A very good wine selection, so nice to see a Cava on the list! Couldn’t manage a desert this time. If we are ever back in Beaufort we will book this restaurant again. Highly recommend. Wait staff were first class.

                        Dinner was delicious. I had rack of lamb which was cooked perfectly. The wife had the ribeye which was also good. The fried smashed potatoes were awesome. The meal was expensive but I don't mind paying for good food. Their website is out of date however. They advertise doing a cocktail hour on the porches. We showed up 45 minutes early to have a few drinks and were turned away. They told us that the website should have been changed since they have not done their cocktail hour since covid began. That's been over a year. Seems like plenty of time to update your services. It was fine for us, we are locals, however someone from out of town would likely be a bit put out. Dinner was overall good but I would not recommend to anyone else. There are better restaurants downtown. When I spend almost 200 on a meal for two I expect to be blown away. This wasn't the case.
