Visiting Beaufort for the first time, we dropped in The Spouter for some lunch. Crab cakes and salmon were excellent as was the salad with grilled triggerfish. The coleslaw that accompanied the meals was outstanding. Beautiful view over the water.

Yes. They definitely take dinner reservations and I assume lunch and brunch as well. Great local seafood, prime rib, breads and desserts. Enjoy!
