While passing through Beaufort found this lovely spot on the water. Nice outdoor seating and great seafood. Had great peel and eat shrimp while my wife had oysters. They were great. Service was excellent. Definitely would come back again.

Enjoyed a nice lunch here. The gumbo was yummy. Best thing though was the nice view of the waterfront park on on a gorgeous December day.

The location is perfect, the food is great and the service is excellent! Enjoy dining inside or outside. My favorite dining spot is on the patio because it has a great view of the waterfront.

Have driven and walked by PLUMS many many times. Finally stopped in for the first time today, I've been such a fool for not stopping before today. Had Frankii as a waitress and she was absolutely AMAZING!!! Had the Ruben sandwich, and my wife had the absolutely BEST Shrimp Po boy! The best advice I can give anyone is GO... More

Excellent choices, delicious food, fabulous homemeade biscuits with honey and pecan butter-yum. Well run, cordial staff, and good for families as well as couples. Fish tacos, gumbo, and scallop curry were fantastic. Key lime pie tasted like limes, not lemons. Would go back anytime.

We enjoyed our visit to Plums. Our waitress was very accommodating to our large group. Fried okra appetizer was great. My husbands penne pasta and chicken was good, nothing special. My hamburger had cheese scraped off even though I asked for no cheese. However the butter pecan nutty butter spread was amazing. We should've ordered all apps. They were best.... More

We had to wait a few minutes while they moved some tables around to accommodate us on the terrace. The terrace offers a nice view of the park and the river. Good low country food. Great shrimp. Good salads, and sandwiches. Friendly wait staff. Reasonable prices.

If you're looking for a yummy, quick and inexpensive lunch in downtown Beaufort, this is your place. My husband enjoyed his fish sandwich with fries and slaw. I loved the chicken salad sandwich. On a sunny day their outdoor patio overlooking the bay is great. It's a great place to meet some of the local folks too!!

As suggested by the inn keeper where we were staying, we had lunch at Plums sitting outside. My wife had the Biarritz and I had the lowcountry boil, both very good. Our server Angela was very informative and helpful, both in reference to the restaurant but also about the area. A very pleasant, relaxed lunch sitting outside overlooking the water.... More
