Gorgeous setting. That said, prices are high. Cheapest entree was $18. Food was good but not amazing. Glad I went, but I will not return.

As a foodie and pretty creative cook, I usually justify going out for special occasions or for the friendships involved, delegating the food to 2nd or 3rd place. I continually repeat afterwards, "I could have made that at home". Well, not so for Sweetgrass! Each...More

Sweetgrassis a small full service restaurant on the water at the Dataw marina. A decent menu variety with a full service bar. Quiet location, good food, friendly staff. Nice out of the way dinner spot - about 15 minutes from downtown Beaufort.
