This was our first time at Nectar. The food was excellent and the service wonderful. Our very enthusiatic server, Perry (?) made it a lovely afternoon. We're local, so looking forward to the new Nectar in Bluffton.

We had a good meal at Nectar. Our server, Nickie (Nicky, nikki, etc), was very good, helpful in our selecting apps and dinner, and genuinely nice.. They are understaffed, like most places, so she was taking care of multiple large tables. Food was hot when served. Longer wait between courses because of staffing. Meatloaf and short ribs were good.

Just ok visit this time. Both of us ordered the butter bean burger. Burger had good taste but was supposed to come with lettuce tomato and pickle - neither burger came with these included.

Food was good but wasn’t “hot” - it was odd. We will try it again but not overly impressed. Service was great.

Food was very good. Had that farm fresh flavor and there peach sauce on the salmon was great. The waiter was attentive but could have been a little more personable. I would recommend to friends and family to try Nectar.

We were greeted by a smiling hostess and attended by a sweet server. Despite being short-handed (like every other place on Hilton Head) everyone we had contact with was very pleasant. We loved the beginning (biscuit basket with local honey and yummy preserves, and fried green tomatoes) and ending (delicious bread pudding) of our meal. Entree reviews were mixed…two thumbs up for meatloaf and BBQ ribs, a so-so for the smothered breast of chicken (heavy and the sauce was a bit pasty) and a thumbs down for the roasted sirloin (chewy and tough). All in all a pleasant, if a bit uneven, dinner. We will likely try again when we’re back on the island. The breakfast menu looks pretty great, so we might give a morning meal a try.

Dinner food was ok. I would go there only for the breakfast food.
Dinner portions were great others on the smaller side.
Not a place to go celebrate a life event, more of a weekday place.
Relaxed atmosphere that was quiet for the most part.

Our reservation was at 6:15 so the restaurant wasn't crazy busy yet. As our meal progressed and more diners came in, it got louder. It didn't help the tables next us each had an obnoxiously loud diner at them. Obviously, no fault of the restaurant! We were fortunate to have Ramone as our server. He was super helpful explaining the menu and was very attentive. We started with the tomato hand pie...delicious and served hot! I got the short rib meal as you can see in the picture. I was kind of disappointed as after pulling off all the fat, which was gross, there wasn't a lot of meat left. (I make short ribs so I know about the attached fat...it was just a lot) There was a lot going on with the plate. Was it horrible? No. Would I get it again? No. My husband got the sea bass special. That was a winner!! Flavorful and perfectly cooked. We shared a buttermilk biscuit...yum!!

This was our second time dining at Nectar. We were here last April. We were somewhat disappointed in the overall experience this trip. It is apparent that covid has caused some struggles. Our server was mediocre at best. We felt like we were his last table of the night and he really didn’t want to take care of us. My husband wanted to come back for the fried chicken sandwich. It didn’t compare to our first visit. We had We asked twice for a dessert menu.

This beyond charming restaurant hits all marks as far as our group was concerned. Creative menu that really delivered on flavor. Even the cocktails were fun! Every single dish, from the fried green tomatoes to the meatloaf were eye-rollingly delicious. The only thing that was less than perfect was the service, but it seemed clear they were a bit under-staffed. Food was delivered in a timely fashion but there was a lack of attention to detail( checking on filling beverages and clearing plates, etc.). But this by no means will prevent us from returning. The portions and the quality were a good fit for the pricing as well. Thank you, Nectar for making our anniversary a scrumptious one to remember.

We were seated near the kitchen where someone was periodically raising their voice to someone else. There were many available tables and we had a reservation...

The food was good but not memorable and portions were overgenerous.

First trip to Nectar. Very enjoyable evening. Busy night, but Charlie the bartender was very attentive and informative. Enjoyed our two salads with the fresh local ingredients, especially the blue cheese.

Good food, many options for different people. Unfortunately the waiter seemed to have a bad day; he declined to offer any recommendations and only have one or two word answers to questions. When we received our food he had forgotten several sides and forgot to submit our appetizers which then became a second course.

EXCELLENT food and service! It was our final meal on HH and to best honest, I hadn't had a great cocktail yet. I opted for the blood orange margarita and it was fantastic. Our kids even said it was the best meal we had on vacation. Don't sleep on Nectar.
