Mikki’s

1638 Paris Ave
Port Royal, 29935
Reviews:
We just had lunch here based upon the 5 star rating on Yelp. It was a very delightful place and the food was excellent, the portions, huge. I had the Oriental Chicken Salad. It was probably the biggest salad I've ever been served. The chicken was so tender you could cut it with a fork. My husband had the Philly Cheese Steak with fries. Again, huge portions. He was very pleased with his meal as well. We will definitely return.
The food is good but if you don't know the owners (like many people do) then you don't get very good service because they are too busy talking or helping those they know. It took 15-20 minutes for someone to take our order, and every time our server came to our table they seemed to not really care.
Ate at Mikki's today for lunch. The beach salad was gigantic and came out on a platter. It was enough for 3 people, so it will be dinner too. My husband got the corned beef hash with fried eggs. Food was really good and the atmosphere is fun and friendly. Everyone in the place ends up talking to everyone else because the place is small and feels like you are eating at your grandmother's house. They serve breakfast all day, so stop in and give them a try!

Alvin Ord’s Sandwich Shop No 2

1415 Ribaut Rd
Port Royal, 29935
Reviews:
OMG this place is awesome, on my travels to Beaufort I found out bout this local fave from a friend and become a fan since, shame I live halfway across the country or else I'd be there every lunch time to grab my fave 'The Salvation' It defiantly those local favorite type places, kind of a hole in the wall joint next to the highway but those are always the best :) The seating is limited so if go during a peak lunch hour it would best to take it to go.
So many people feel like sandwiches are boring. Clearly, they have never experienced Alvin Ord's. When my parents moved to the Beaufort area more than a decade ago, we visited Alvin's per a local's recommendation. It is a little hole in the wall that we never would have visited otherwise, but boy was it life changing. The sandwiches served up in this little shop are to die for - they feature homemade bread (French or wheat) with melted cheese and butter, LOTS of meat, and perfectly-allotted garnishes. I always get the medium 'Salvation' and leave a happy and filled man. It's a sizeable sandwich, and rumor has it that a monk blesses all the bread (is this sandwich my salvation?). The shop is adorned by cute little monk figurines, so perhaps there is truth to said rumor. My mom is a big fan of the sliced turkey. We also get a bag of chips and a soda. They have real vanilla and cherry syrups that they add to the soda, so I always get a vanilla diet coke, with the crushed ice of course. Helpful hint - call in your order about 10-15 minutes in advance and then you get to bypass the line when you get there! Also note that the staff are usually rather unfriendly, but in a "we're busy and don't have time to put on our fake southern charm" attitude. And in a way, that just adds to the unique charm that is Alvin Ord's.
Pretty good sandwiches but a little pricey. I'm not quite sure if the sandwiches are really good or if there just are no other really good restaurants in Beaufort to compare it to. I think this is the best in the area. Also, I agree with the others who say the place is annoyingly small. That is what really kept me from going there more.

Smokin’ Planks

914 Paris Ave
Port Royal, 29935
Reviews:
WOW!!! That's all I have to say... ...except, what kind of review would that be? IMPORTANT: You should ask for the "gator-dog" it's not on the menu (forgive me my fellow locals for giving away the secret) but it is just the right amount of spicy and flavorful. Give it a shot. This place has great BBQ, and every side I tried was awesome, Green beans, Cole slaw, mac and cheese all right on point. Prices are good and the place is just unique. Such a diamond in the rough. Great stop for lunch. They also have some beer and wine for those who want that extra flavor with their meal.
I am giving smokin planks 4 stars instead of 5 for one reason, which I'll get to. First, I read reviews and ordered the pulled pork sandwich for my husband and I for pick up. The gentleman I spoke to on the phone was very helpful and polite, I started out on a good foot. I walked in and they have a pick up counter and an order counter. Naturally I walk up to the pick up counter, as I had already placed my order. The older woman working there was incredibly rude. She acted like I was out of line for standing at the pick up and very condescendingly told me to stand in the order line. So I obliged. That naturally rubbed me the wrong way. Anyhow, I was helped by Brooke who very politely gave me a military discount because my husband is active duty. She was very professional which boosted my review from an automatic 3 to a 4. The pulled pork was good. Their sauces are pretty decent. I was left unimpressed with the fries. I probably will not return, but wouldn't be opposed to it if someone had to go there. Still wouldn't be my first choice.
Really good! Brought the family for lunch and the food was incredible. The cole slaw was a highlight. Sweet tea or Yuengling beer means all beverage needs are met. Had the Cuban sandwich and was very impressed. One downside: You have to remember to check-in or review later as there's no cell coverage...certainly not their fault.

Went to Yama for lunch service, and they weren't ready for a party of 13, but service and food was excellent, parking was great, food and service excellent.
Nice place to eat. I am surprised to see an excellent sushi house in beaufort since this town is very small. I order the yaki udon with shrimp, very tasty not your salty fare you get from typical sushi place. The only thing I am not sure was if the owner/usher was an actual Japanese. I have been to a lot of Japanese resto and upon hearing the workers/ushers/owner talk and they are either Chinese/Korean. Either way the food I ordered was hot and well balanced. The wife ordered the sushi-sashimi combo and the sashimi is two piece of salmon and octopus. The salmon is a block cut not the traditional sashimi. However it is very good cut, not cold and not warm. All the cuts of fish is very good, I will definitely be back. Only reason why it is 4 stars because of the amount of the sashimi pieces.
Everytime I have been their food has been delicious. I order the hibachi steak and shrimp and their portions are huge and they have great early bird specials for it. My service has always been excellent there. I'm always surprised to not see that they're busier! Definitely would recommend.

11th Street Dockside

Reviews:
Just left Dockside after a great meal!! I had the Swordfish & it was awesome. Other members of our party had various seafood items, steak, & chicken. No one had anything bad to say!!! Nuff said!!!!!
Been wanting to eat here for months. Finally found it. The treasure of Port Royal, tucked away on 11th St. I ate alone so my wait for a table wasn't terrible. Gorgeous views of the river from this restaurant. Busy, but not enough to make you want to go elsewhere. I started with the Buffalo shrimp with Vidalia coleslaw. Stellar. Amazing. Holy cow! Shrimp were perfect and the slaw was so good. For dinner I had the broiled seafood plate. The plate arrived hot and looked delicious. However, the scallops were the most flavorful thing on the plate; a bunch of seasons were sprinkled all over the food (jumbo shrimp, flounder, deviled crab), but the overall flavor was bland. I wonder if I should have ordered fried food instead. I also had a side salad with Greek vinegarette. Service was great and speedy. Atmosphere was lovely. I feel next time, I won't be ordering the broiled seafood platter.
This is my favorite seafood restaurant in Beaufort! Dockside is great for families with small kids, couples looking for a great night out and large groups! Their coconut shrimp appetizer is the best and I love their seafood pasta. Have not eaten anything I didn't love here in all of my years of coming! Would recommend this place to anyone & everyone! And the view is absolutely perfect!

Agave Mexican Grill

1430 Ribaut Rd
Port Royal, 29935
Reviews:
After three weeks of absolutely horrid service at every restaurant in Beaufort, we finally hit upon a place where our minimal expectations were exceeded. Really, we don't expect that much: water, drinks in a timely manner, no big gaps between each of the steps of a meal, don't ask us how the meal is 10 seconds after you place it in front of us, etc. Jose was our waiter for the evening. Great guy, great service. Just enough attention that you knew he was paying attention but not so much you felt intruded upon. The food itself was pretty good, too. I love the Tex-Mex variety and this fit the bill. Spicy salsa, good chips, really tasty margaritas go a long way for us in defining the quality of a mexican food restaurant. Agave delivered on all 3 counts. The fajitas were excellent as well. Thanks Jose!
I have been to Agave four times over the last several months. The first time I had shredded chicken enchiladas and was not very impressed.The second time was after reading Tricia W.'s mention of the Pork Tingas, and I have gotten that dish every time since. It is damn good. I took a friend from KC here and he declared it the best Mexican food he's had in the South. As others have said, the service is great and the chips and salsa are too. Beer drinker tip- Tecate 16-oz cans are $2.00.
Had dinner here twice while staying at the Port Royal Marina. Hubby got the Pork Tinga both times and it was really good. I had the Carnitas the first time and the Pork Fajitas the second. I guess we were in a "piggy mood" both visits. The food was really good and so were the chips and salsa. Service was fast both times and the food was good and hot. What more can you ask for... They had a pretty varied menu and would definitely go back if we come back through Port Royal again. Definitely worth a try~

Davids Crab House

1742 Ribaut Rd
Port Royal, 29935
Reviews:
I don't know why I haven't written a review for here yet. We've gotten crab here at least dozen times. The place looks a little dinky, but we've been getting crab here for over a year and it's so much cheaper than getting crab in a restaurant anywhere in Beaufort. There are no tables so this is purely take out. The prices are around $9-12/lb for the crab and I think $9.99/lb for shrimp. Be mindful that almost anything that says "garlic" is spicy. So if you like spicy and seafood, this place is awesome. They have the best spicy garlic blue crab I've had in awhile. If you don't like spicy, you can always get everything steamed. They do it for you right when you order. You can get snow crab or blue crab or even dungeness. The garlic shrimp is also delicious. I love their spicy sauce, but it has me reaching for the water after dipping about 5 shrimp in it. They also have low country boil, conch, and other sides. The only downside is they are not open on Sundays. But other than that, they are super convenient. We have strolled in 10 minutes til closing many times and walked away with 2.5 lbs worth of crab and shrimp in minutes. I highly recommend this place for some quick crab or shrimp. And if it's important, I have never gotten sick eating food from here ever.
