We always look forward to an evening at Plums. The food is dellightful fresh, service "spot-on," and no rush. Oysters on the half-shell, fried oysters, and shrimp were as great as ever.

A pleasant surprise. I recommend the Beaufort reuben. My friend who is a vegetarian found an amazing salad. Our husbands enjoyed a burger and seafood gumbo. We were all pleased with everything we ordered and our service. I highly recommend to all tourist and locals.

Plums was recommended by a shop owner , and we chose it because the view of the bay was spectacular from the back . Let's say that the view was the best part of the meal. The crab cake sandwich was undercooked and the shrimp...More

A number of restaurants in Beaufort are not open on Sunday, so Plums is a welcome relief -- they serve both lunch and dinner. The menu is definitely above standard fare. The candied pecan and Roquefort salad was very good -- tons of pecans and...More
