Beautiful day for water front dining. Went with friends and ordered the soft shell crab in a pita with potato salad. It was excellent. My dining companions were also very pleased with their house specialty, shrimp salad. Wonderful view and delicious meal.

the view alone is worth it. outdoor seating is the way to go if weather allows. I had a salad with grilled shrimp that was good.

I always come to eat here, because it is so peaceful sitting outside. The service is very nice: efficient but not intrusive or hurrying. The view is the best. Food is pretty good, but combined with the ambience and service, superb!

We are here twice while in Beaufort, first for a delicious meal on the deck enjoying the beautiful view, the second time just for dessert. Lots of boats pass by. Wild horses on the island across the water.

Family of 5 adults enjoyed a good meal on back deck/porch. Crab cake was delicious. Others enjoyed the blackened grouper, seafood trio and ribs. Waitress was good.

The Spouter Inn gets it. Service is good and food arrives well prepared. I like the view and the food. It can get a little loud, so if noise bothers you, bring earplugs.

I stood at the desk waiting for someone to acknowledge my presence. The two servers stood there discussing switching tables. SMH Not a good first impression.
