Whenever I can find a restaurant that focuses on the quality and freshness of organic and sustainable prime ingredients and local products, I'm all in. That's why we ate at the Front Street Grill in Beaufort. The theme in Front Street Grill's dishes is “Coastal Food with a Southern Soul.” Humble southern ingredients (such as local vegetables, fresh fish, smoked ham and stone ground grits) meet Caribbean spices, for a blend of two cuisines.

The dining room is small but tastefully done, and the views are lovely.
The first time we visited, hubby and I both ordered the organic burger ($8.95), made with beef from grass-fed cows. Served on a toasted Brioche roll with lettuce, tomato and onion and your choice of coleslaw, fries or dressed greens, this burger made us both very happy.
This time, we decided to branch out. Hubby ordered the Neuske Ham and Cheese Panini (smoked spiral ham with Monterey Jack and sweet hot mustard on grilled sourdough.....$10.95), and he raved over it.
I ordered the Pit Cooked Pulled Pork sandwich with a house-made BBQ sauce and spicy
coleslaw on a soft brioche roll ($9.95). The pulled pork was good (what there was of it), not sure where the BBQ sauce was, but I was still remembering 12 Bones Smokehouse. Quite honestly, no one could measure up to that. Also, the waiter goofed on my order and brought me a side of coleslaw, but the sandwich already came with coleslaw, so I got double coleslaw, which I didn't want. He didn't come back to check on us, so I left the roll and coleslaw and just ate the very small portion of pulled pork. This was a little bit of a disappointment.
