Great “go to” restaurant. Sorry it’s not open for lunch. the Red Fish wine tastings and dinners are always on HHI. Like the Easter Brunch and sitting in the bar area. Plus it’s gluten free!!!

Have dined at Red Fish Bluffton many times, have had most dishes on menu and have never been disappointed. Food and service excellent. One of our favorite spots and nearby Historic old Bluffton.

One of favorite spots. Enjoy the Bluffton location better then HHI. Grate atmosphere. Had a young new waitress- needless to say everything went wrong but I will say when I Spoke to Robin the manager, she made it right. She assigned us a new server and Comp the entire meal. That’s the way to do it . Will definitely come back - thanks in part to Robin. Thanks Robin

The food was very bland and disappointing. I got the sea bass and it was okay but not worth the price and my husband got the create a plate of the fish and it was also not good. The best part of the meal was my 6 year old daughters French fries on her child’s plate. Service was great and our waitress was really friendly!

Late seating. New waitress (forgivable), food took a VERY long time, but was very good once it arrived. A bit overpriced for the overall experience. Loud hip hop music playing seemed out of place,

Impossibly loud - but then it was a Sunday night and not many places are open then so it was super crowded. Conversation for us was impossible due to the noise from other tables. Food is just okay - Smart styling of the venue is its best attribute. Wish the rest of it was better. We will try again of course (been there may times)

The service was prompt but not particularly friendly. I made a casual joke to the server and I got a blank response. The food (I had scallops) was ok but not great. The price was high so I expected more from the food. I also bumped into another patron at the restaurant who thought that his beef was over done. The setting was very nice. It is a bit remote from the local traffic which is nice.

Red Fish is one of our favorite restaurants. Six of us went for Mother’s Day, one of the busiest days for restaurants. Despite the restaurant being full, the food and service were excellent. We have never been disappointed here.

We were there for Mother’s Day dinner at 5:15. The ladies at the hostess table did not greet us. We were taken to a table in the bar area that was squeezed up against the wine bottles. The waiter took our drink orders and brought them. He then took our dinner orders and that was the last we heard from him. He suddenly became the bar tender and was happily talking to his bar patrons. He never once asked us how our food was. He did not offer us more wine or other alcohol. He did not offer us dessert. He walked by a few times and didn’t even look our way. We finally had to stop him and ask for our checks after we waited and waited for at least an offer of the dessert menu.
He brought our checks immediately. Obviously he wanted us gone so he could turn our table. We are extremely good tippers and always tip more than 20 percent. He could have been well compensated if he had at least checked back with us once. We are never going back to Red Fish.

We’ve dined at Red Fish frequently and never experienced what occurred last night.We had a 7:15 reservation for eight people. Arrived and checked in and asked if we could have a drink in the bar prior to being seated. No problem so we did so. That went fine. We sat down ar our table at 7:30. A drink order was slow in coming, but by 7:45 we had a drink and ordered appetizers/salads as well as our food order. Appetizer arrived at approximately 8:00. We had to ask for bread twice. At 8:30 I got up and asked what was happening on our food order. Reply was it’s coming. At 8:45, 75 minutes after we were seated still no food and the group had run out of patience and were going to leave. I approached the lady who said she was the Manager and informed her we could not continue to wait. She said it was soon to be served and I said we were leaving as it had taken way too long. She proceeded to lecture me on the timelines they follow for order prep and serving. Indicated it was 15 minutes from order to serve. I asked then why had ours taken 45 minutes to an hour. She said it hadn’t but obviously eight people said it had. She then said we had to pay the bill to which I said given the level of service that wasn’t right. She then said I’ll call the police if you don’t. We then left and the three other gentleman left some money on the table as I had paid the 100.00 bar bill. Fifteen minutes later my phone rings and it is a policeman saying if I didn’t pay (165.00) then he’d have to file a police report. I paid the money. Their decision was expensive for them as none of us will ever return and our bills are usually $100.00+ per couple per visit.
