Places to eat from a Beaufort SC native.

I was there this past weekend- 10/17-10/20- we went to Saltus late on Thursday-a round 8 pm and were able to get a tabel outside- We weren't too hungry so one of us got seared tuna and the other ordered steak tartar- both were excellent! we went to nippy's for lunch on Friday- i got the shrimp basket- Superb! and my friend had the balckend fish tacos- not a bite left! We cooked in(snapper, peas and squash) on Friday night... Saturday we went to Hunting Island and hit the Seafood Shack on the way back- had the scallops, onion rings and slaw- which i lvoed- not a huge serving but very good. My friend had the shrimp salad and she said it was good. We went to Breakwater on Saturday night- service was excellent- one ahd sampler paltter($17), fried oysters and calarmari appetizer-very very good then 2 had crabcake for dinner and scallops over risotto- all excellent. prices were good and a big variety on prices and food!

I would think most places would be closed that night- Dyron's is a good choice too and Ollie Irene in mt Brook but not sure if they are open... Ruths Chris should eb open since it is in embassy Suites- great steaks~~
