Panini's has a great deck overlooking the park and bay. It is dog friendly. Our server even brought our pup a bowl of water. The food was good and reasonable price, but the setting and the servers are the real gems here.

Our plans were to go somewhere else for lunch with some friends who live in Beaufort, but found they were not open for lunch so we ended up here. This old bank makes a great setting for a restaurant . Our server , Marcus was very attentive and did a great job. There were eight of us. I ordered the... More

When looking for a fantastic local fare sandwich, Panini's is at the top of the list. I had the BLT with Crabmeat and will forever be a fan! Service was great and the ambiance perfect. I chose the outdoor seating with views of the waterfront and park. A really wonderful experience.

Having eaten at Paninis on several occasions I can easily say location has been the draw. Pizzas are nicely prepared and can be the best thing on the menu. Live music is delightful. It is worth a go!

Excellent food and service. Pizza was oval and delicious. There is a light atmosphere and yet intimate. They have an outside patio near the waterfront park.

We had lunch here during our short, two-day, visit to Beaufort. The food, her panini and my pizza, was excellent! We ate outside, which was nice, and the server was attentive. The only problem was a few gnats, but not the restaurant's fault.

We had dinner a Panini's with another couple. The decor is really nice. They also have outside eating that overlooks Waterfront Park, which is a nice plus. Unfortunately, the food is expensive and not very good. My wife ordered a steak, medium rare because in the past they had the best steak in town. Her steak was well-done and thin... More

The wood oven pizza and Panini's is wonderful! The crust is crispy and the toppings flavorful. They also have a good selection of local beer on tap, which we enjoyed. The atmosphere is great, being situated right on the marsh. We went on a buggy evening, so we weren't able to fully enjoy the view but it was well situated.... More

We had great service and the food was amazing. The She Crab Soup was awesome and the sandwiches were not only very interesting but very flavorful and yummy. Pricing is very reasonable. Thanks for a great lunch today.
