The hippest eatery in Beaufort, Saltus River Grill wins over diners with its sailing motifs, breezy patio, and modern Southern menu. The bar opens at 4 pm, as does the raw bar with its tempting array of oysters and sushi spacials. Take in the sunset from the outdoor seating area overlooking the riverfront park. A flawless dinner might start off with the signature crab bisque, then segue to the seared sea scallops with green pea and pancetta risotto. The wine list is admirable, and desserts change nightly.
