Wonderful views of the harbor park. Fantastic Fresh Food & local Beer. We've had many tasty luncheons throughout the year.

Haven't been there for a while. We had a nice dinner served very efficiently by Paula. The stuffed flounder was really good and the gumbo was excellent. We'll be back.

Had dinner at Plums for an anniversary and we would visit again. Sat on outside deck and even though it was a cool night, heaters made it very enjoyable. Service was good and our food was served in a timely manner. They were out of several things items this night (sausage, taco shells, hamburger buns) it didn't impact the enjoyment... More

Nice friendly spot for lunch although a bit over touristed. The small plate fried shrimp or oysters just right for a bite. Service always with a smile and dog friendly:) You gotta have fish tacos at lunch!

Great location, personable staff, yummy food. The fried Oysters were so tender I wanted more. The chowder was delicious but watch out, if you don't eat ham they failed to tell us it's in the chowder. My friend had shrimp and grits for the first time and loved it. Generous portion. Their Cole slaw was a "10". We sat outside... More

We had dinner here on the patio overlooking the water on a beautiful warm evening. The crab & shrimp dip appetizer was excellent, as were the fish tacos. My wife had the grits with shrimp which she said was only average. Overall though we were pleased with our meal and great service by Frankie.

Entering about 3:30, we were the only diners. Having the restaurant virtually to ourselves, our service was great, though not the most friendly. However, too late for lunch specials and too early for dinner specials. It's Restaurant week so we had hoped to take advantage, but...only for dinner.

It looked like it might be a cute place for lunch on the waterfront. I ordered the egg salad sandwich and as I was biting into it, my friend noticed a hair dangling from it. The waitress invited me to order something else. So I ordered a different sandwich. When it came,I couldn't believe it when I saw a Hair... More

We had lunch at Plums recently. It is situated on the waterfront park on the Beaufort River. Since it was relatively warm, we ate outside. Lovely view. Food was fine I had Classic Rueben and a side salad and my wife had the Plums club sandwich and fruit salad. Nothing gourmet, but very good. Dog friendly also.

Thank John H
