The River Deck is partially shaded and can be booked exclusively for a tour group.

Panini's on the Waterfront provides live entertainment on their River Deck along with the full menu. This can be an ideal place for a relaxing dinner and early evening at the end of a day of sightseeing. Guests can relax while overlooking the river and enjoy their freshly prepared meal and then linger over drinks while listening to the live music. What a great way to wind down after a wonderful day of shopping and sightseeing in Beaufort.

Only the freshest ingredients are used to prepare the variety of menu selections. Almost all produce is certified South Carolina grown and the seafood is purchased from the local fishermen.

We Work With Tour Directors for a Wonderful Dining Experience

Panini's on the Waterfront is happy to work with tour directors to customize the menu especially for the group. The options are not limited to what is on the current printed menu. Tour directors are welcome to call or stop in and make these arrangements ahead of time. The staff at Panini's on the Waterfront is experienced in helping tour directors make these arrangements; they have been catering to the needs of tour groups for years.


A tour director also has the option of contacting the restaurant ahead of time and selecting a limited menu for the group. Limiting the menu helps ensure a group can order and eat in a short time. This is a good idea for a lunch stop so the group can eat, take a short break in this serene environment, but still get in and out quickly to continue sightseeing. If desired, a tour group can have a break that is done in 45 minutes. Passengers, ask your tour director to be sure to book Panini's on the Waterfront for your dining experience in beautiful downtown Beaufort.
