The people Red attracted, they were the inspiration. The patrons of a wine boutique turned out to be people who were open to the finer experiences.

What a pleasure to fulfill their interests in fine food, good company and quality service. In rising to those requirements we found Red had become a restaurant, unique in its focus on the pleasure of an evening.

Wine was the starting point. Beyond the snobbery that once surrounded wine in America, Red let’s you explore, enjoy and fulfill your interest, your own way, using a serving instrument that’s unique to our region.

Please consider this your own invitation to join us for an evening soon.

My Wife and I enjoyed the place. My first time; her first time since the remodel and (I believe) new ownership from a year ago. Good atmosphere. Pleasant decor. Regular musicians every Thu, Fri, & Sat, but they play quietly enough everyone can still enjoy their conversations. Sharp staff; two individuals recognized my Wife and I from serving us at other locations in the past.

The onion soup tasted like beef gravy, inedible. Mussels, some good, some bad. None of the employees who came to our table asked how food was. And everything was slow in coming.

The white wine I purchased with wine card was not chilled. My dinner of Chicken Kiev was room temperature in many spots. Not hot or even warm. The chicken was tough. The appetizer of baked Brie was very good.

Best ever to sit, sampling wines at fair prices, saying to yourself, “I always wanted to try that obe and oh, this one too!” Great chef from New Zealand continues to experiment with meshing West Coast cuisine with South Carolina favorites.

This our second time visiting the restaurant. We find the food creative and fresh. We enjoy trying the wines from the wine taste machines. The Chef’s choice bruschetta which had fresh vegetables, olives and balsamic glaze was our favorite part of the meal. We choose to try the starters and the salads as they are small portions which we like.

How does this restaurant get such high reviews? When we walked into Red we were very impressed, the decor and ambiance looked like it would be a fun evening. And I must say the food when we got it was very good. But the poor service (it took 2 1/2 hours to actually complete our dinner. It is a small restaurant so I have no idea why our dishes took so long. And most of them were cold?? I don't think I'll return here for awhile, maybe they need to straighten things out. With so many worthy restaurants in Blufton and HH island, I can be picky

What a great place! The wine is served 3 ways: you can grab a bottle off the wall (7 minutes and your white is chilled), you can purchase by the glass or you can load a wine card with $. The card allows you to use the wine dispensers where you can choose a tasting amount, a small glass or large. They also have a charturie board appetizer where you can choose different cheese options. Loved the extra level of interest their model adds to a typical dinner date. Service is outstanding!

This is a wine boutique that has several wines on tap for do-it-yourself tasting in 2,4, or 6 oz pours. You can also shop their extensive inventory of bottles and purchase bottles or glasses of these. The food options are somewhat limited, but this is not necessarily a bad thing. What they do offer is well-prepared and presented. That said, the focus here seems to be on wine.

We had a fabulous evening with a great wine selection, incredible food and the acoustic guitar music was super, not too loud that you could not have a conversation but also you could enjoy every 70's song!
We will make this a regular stop!

Just dropped in for some wine and cheese with friends. Bought a wine card and used it to taste various wines from their wine dispensers. This is a great concept for tasting a lot of wines you wouldn't normally get to taste. Ordered some cheese plates and their baked brie to go with the wine. Had previously eaten full meals here from their dinner menu and it was great.

Overall excellent! Special feature is the nitrogen powered collection of about 30 wines set up for sipping or drinking using an in house charge card! The chef visits each table weather for lunch or dinner to check on the meals. A giant bowl of mussels for $14 is outstanding!

The wine selection is great. Service is friendly. You can buy a card and taste a number of wines from their dispensers. Also, lots of wine by the bottle displayed on the wall. The special of the night was paella and it was outstanding. Will be back soon.

Very nice restaurant in the Dollar Tree strip mall. Quite small. Limited but very good menu. Chef came out and asked how everything was. Cool concept of wine tasting, though I just went with a glass instead of the $20 card where you can taste various wines! Loved the singer/guitarist. Not too loud. Played soft rock.

This was a 1st time dining at The Red + had a great dinner.
There was a large selection of wine by the glass but we chose a bottle displayed on the racks on wall around the dining area. Most wines were unpriced but eventually was told the cost.
I had the seared shrimp + crab served in an avocado which was delicious.
My main course was the Scottish salmon over mushrooms + a grilled artichoke which was cooked perfectly.
Dessert was a bourbon pecan pie that was very large but great.
Didn’t realize it was for two but I’ll enjoy it for a few nights.
The chef, Heath Prosser spoke to us for awhile + was interesting to talk with.
The waitress were knowledgeable + friendly.
