We were seven women having dinner after an event. I was sitting with my back to the wall, affording me with a view of the wall opposite, when we noticed a large palmetto bug ( roach) crawling up the wall opposite. It went behind a picture. Next, a large palmetto bug (roach) was crawling on the wall up by the... More

So great and delicious! I'll need to come back here next time I'm in town! Best place in Beaufort! They have wonderful drinks. The telephone booth that you can walk through is super unique.

Had a wonderful experience, best pizza ever in my life, Omar and Derrick are the best pizza chefs in the world. Seriously the best pizza I've ever had. My boyfriend had the beef shoulder and it was also to die for. Highly recommend

After we'd been out in Beaufort all day, we wanted a light dinner. According to Open Table, pickings were slim so we wandered to the OBT next to our lodging. The wait for a table of two was an hour and a half, but there were two seats at the bar. Check, sign me up. My wife and I shared... More

Third visit over three years and still delivers a cornucopia of taste. Here with our daughters, we started off with chicken liver pate, pork belly steamed buns, escargot, garlic shrimp and tomato basil soup. All were phenomenal. Next we had the pappardelle with bolognese sauce and finished with the tenderloin of beef. These were also full of taste and flavor.... More

We ate at TOB on a recent trip to Beaufort. What a find! We were seated at a table in the bar which was perfect so I can't comment about the atmosphere in the dining room but the bar was dark, very busy and exactly what a pub bar should be. We started with drinks after hearing about the talented... More

Our dinner was prepared to perfection. Very unique selection of entrees. Had lamb shank and it was great. Meals served hot and fresh. Ate in the bar area.....it is noisy and fun. Suggest sitting there rather than the dining room for better atmosphere.
