The River Deck


Panini's Cafe is located downtown in historic Beaufort on Bay Street with great views on the waterfront from the River Deck. Our outside area is ideal for relaxing with a drink, enjoying a great meal, and spending time with family and friends. Our patio is even pet-friendly, so please feel free to bring your four legged buddies. They can even order from their own "Doggie Menu" provided by Lucky Dog Cuisine.


Nearly every good-weather day on the River Deck is an excellent opportunity to catch the action of privately owned ships venturing to and from the Atlantic Ocean. Fishing charters, private yachts and skiffs, and everything in between can all be found along the water, heading out in the early morning hours and coming home as the sun sets over the city.


While watching the local maritime traffic is certainly entertaining, the River Deck serves up a variety of live music, a full bar, outgoing staff, and an expansive menu of fresh local seafood and Italian cuisine. This covered/uncovered patio area is also available for private events. See our photo gallery.
