Parris Island Grads, Celebrate with Us


We proudly support our Parris Island Military Grads. Are you planning a celebration for your Parris Island Graduate?" We'd love to have you and your family celebrate with lunch or dinner at Panini's on the Waterfront in downtown Beaufort. Not only does the close proximity to Parris Island from downtown Beaufort make it the perfect spot to celebrate, but the team at Panini's is very proud of our local Parris Island Marine Graduates and love to welcome them!


To show our support for the men and women of our armed services, we invite all Parris Island Graduates (in uniform) to eat for FREE here at Panini's on the Waterfront on Graduation Day! These dedicated men and women have certainly earned it and deserve to be treated to dinner on their special day – and we're glad to do it!


Panini's is also a great place for visiting relatives and friends to eat lunch or dinner while in Beaufort for Family Day celebrations that take place on the last two days of recruit training. Family Day occurs Thursday and gives new Marines a chance to see family and friends for the first time during on-base liberty. Also remember that Panini's River Deck is pet -friendly, so your favorite furry member of the family is always welcome to join you for dinner!


Parris Island is not only important to our local Beaufort area, but the entire United States military as well. Did you know hundreds of thousands of Marines have trained on the Depot during each major conflict of the 20th century? Parris Island is also one of the most visited military facilities in the world, hosting more than 120,000 visitors a year. This translates into a significant economic impact for surrounding communities.


Family and visitors travel to Beaufort on a regular basis to attend the recruit Graduation Ceremony at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot. Visitors can find more official information about lodging, dining, tours and attractions in nearby Beaufort, Port Royal and Bluffton, South Carolina by clicking here.

We'd love to share your special Parris Island graduation celebration with you! We think everyone in the family will find something they enjoy at Panini's in Beaufort. We are proud to offer a delightful blend of old world Italian charm and new world cuisine. We serve unique and crispy stone-baked pizza, panini sandwiches, hoagies, large salads, inventive pastas, and fresh local seafood - all made with a Mediterranean flare. We are proud of our Marines and salute each and every one of you! Semper Fi!
