Lovely place, upscale but unpretentious, with interesting cooking and friendly service
We came to Breakwater on the last night open before the governor’s mandate went into effect. Of course the dinner was delicious, salmon and rigatoni, but even better was the camaraderie amongst the staff and patrons.
The food was very bland and I was served a half of a flounder which was all bones. The meaty top of the flounder was cut off...
There are many riverfront restaurants to choose from in Beaufort. Despite its name, however, this is not one of them, so views are of a busy side street, not the Mighty Maye. Decor is lovely and service was good, but the quiche was really skimpy (for the price), the fish tacos OK but not memorable, and the Caesar salad tired-looking. With just water and tea to drink, our bill came to more than $60 for lunch. Reasonable, but I cannot recommend.
We enjoyed a very nice meal our last night visiting Beaufort. We will definitely return the next time we are here! Our server was wonderful! She had good menu recommendations and was attentive.
We had a wonderful meal! Great selections for food and beverages. Such a fun restaurant! Kelsey was our fabulous server! We'll be back - every chance we get to be in town.... :)
Our dinner was extraordinary. Great food, attentive wait staff and excellent wine list made our dinner a great way to introduce friends to this unique restaurant.
Excellent food that is consistently good for the past 10 years Staff is very knowledgeable about ingredients for those with food allergies This is a favorite among many very good restaurants in Beaufort
We were meeting friends over lunch and spent at least two hours or more. The restaurant emptied out and we stayed with no problem. The food was delicious. Service friendly and prompt following our requests. And we thought the atmosphere lovely and serene. The decor soothing and high end. All in all a great find.
Food was good, not fabulous. Excellent, attentive waitstaff.
We love Breakwater and have been there many times. The food is consistently good and the atmosphere lovely-- it is a very pretty restaurant. However on our most recent visit, the service was spotty at best. While the room was hardly busy, we had to wait for a very long time to have our drink order taken and then it took a very long time for our food to be delivered
I'm certain that our evening was not typical-- usually the service is top notch. Certainly we'll return soon
Server and food were great. I would highly recommend.
Been to Breakwater many times. Service and food is always very good. Very nice dining room and nice sitting in the bar. Small dishes on the menu which is nice. Staff is always friendly. Never had a bad meal or experience here. Cant go wrong.
Loved my dinner here with a friend! Our server was wonderful! The food was delicious. The hostess was not so accommodating but overall we had a wonderful time.
Everything was great as always!
We mentioned birthday dinner on Open Table when making reservation but when we were toasting our drinks the waitress was surprised and wished a Happy Birthday.
Why do they ask on reservation if their is a special occasion if they are not going to recognize it?
Breakwater has become my "go to" lunch with colleagues, friends, and out-of-town visitors because I can rely on great service, great food, and a lovely setting.
Food was good as always but I’m not sure what the issue was with the service. Our waiter that took our order was rarely present, our food was brought to us by 2 different people and our last round of drinks (never got my last drink btw) was ordered by grabbing other servers as they walked by. The people that were seated next to us actually got up and left. Very uncharacteristic of this place as where we were seated (bar area) there was very little of a crowd to have caused a lack of service. It was Valentines Day and a rare outing for me and the wife without kids, wish it was better.
Food is always excellent! Great waitress.
We, as always, had fantastic dining experience! Triggerfish was beyond comparison in its fresh, unique, and beautiful appeal. Wait staff always exceeds expectations and "house" ambiance never fails in warmth and welcome. Top of our list- Breakwater!!
Had an amazing fresh crab and avocado salad for lunch (special for that day), so good I asked our waitress Heather to be added on the menu. Heather was a top notch waitress and service excellent. Nice quiet booth ideal for romantic or business meetings. Highly recommend this place as both food and service are excellent!
Food was good but not superb. Service was great. Ambiance was nice. Somewhat pricey. Would recommend it and will probably eat there again sometime.
I had a birthday dinner reservation! Outstanding Service, my waiter was very patient and very kind! I had the fried chicken, it was cooked to perfection! Would definitely go back!
Amazing food, attentive but not overbearing staff. Everything was phenomenal
Wonderful food. Wonderful service.
The service was exceptional, however the food (entree)was almost unacceptable. The starter plates were great. We both had fish, both portions were overcooked and the fish special was tasteless.
Love this place. Meal was excellent. Only issue, it got noisy as the night went on.
Food took a very long time to arrive and the served two plates first before the other two awkwardly.
Well thought out designed restaurant and super clean
Grilled cheese tasted fishy and the mashed potatoes were like a scoop of ice cream very small.
Best part was the environment.
For a great meal in a relaxing setting.. You must try Breakwater.
Long wait for service. Never received one of our desserts. I will say it was very busy tonight. We are locals so we’ve been there before and service was fine.
The wait staff at Breakwater are the best in Beaufort. We went during Restaurant Week and were very pleased with the food. They had a good selection and the portion sizes were perfect for a 3-course meal. I thought it was a good value and a very enjoyable evening.
I had dined at Breakwater before and had an excellent experience at lunch. This time was for dinner and unfortunately the food fell short of our expectations. The shrimp appetizer from the menu section called "for the table" was very good but really only enough for two people. Maybe it should have been listed under the regular appetizer section. Then the main course arrived. One entree was blackened Maui Maui and it was overcooked to the point of being chewy. I had the beef short ribs and they really didn't have any flavor. After a few bites I asked for the pepper mill and that really didn't help. So I took them home and added my own seasoning before reheating. The two other entrees were described as just okay. The desserts were slightly better. I had the homemade bourbon ice cream and although delicious was a quarter melted when it arrived at the table. All in all I would not go back. I would also add that prices are very reasonable here and the service was very professional.
Very good food and terrific service in a lovely space. We did not realize it was Restaurant week, and (unfortunately!!) we were not very hungry. The two-course menu looked great. We will go back the next time we are anywhere close.
Came for first time during restaurant week on a Monday evening. My meal was delicious! Restaurant was not crowded so not noisy and we were seated far from the bar area that was busy. I’m glad I chose this establishment from the list of participants in the event as am new to the area and will be back with visitors and friends!
We were celebrating a relative’s birthday & they were very kind to bring a sparkler candle in her dessert and she very much appreciated that nice touch. All 4 of us enjoyed our meals...the blackened mahi was delicious & the pasta with mushrooms had wonderful flavors. We’ll definitely be back!
Not so good but as expected for the off season. Service was fine but somethings we ordered did not meet expectations
The place is immaculate and the bartenders and wait staff were wonderful. We appreciated the small dining area and ability to hear our guests talking but the food was not as good as we hoped it would be.
This was our second dine-in experience at Breakwater and just as the first time, it was excellent. Our waitress and all of the restaurant staff were extremely nice and went above and beyond to make our experience enjoyable. Will definitely dine here regularly and bring friends and family to the restaurant as well.
Wonderful restaurant - great, friendly service and excellent food!! We were well taken care of despite the lack of consideration of other guests, making it hard for the staff to seat people and serve people. We love this restaurant!
New Year’s Eve w/family.
Had our New Year’s Eve dinner here. Living local it is a great place to eat! Food was outstanding! Service was spectacular-our server Melvin did a fabulous job with a great personality! The food at Breakwater is consistently great and you can always count on courteous and attentive servers. Love this place!!!!
