    Always a fabulous experience here! If you can get Tanya’s table, she’s the best server! Chef has a talent for combining disparate flavors that result in amazing outcomes. The only negative I can site would be that certain tables -particularly in the middle of the room - have a really high noise level so it makes for difficult conversations at times. If you can sit on the perimeter of the dining room away from the door, that’s your best bet

    We celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary. From the champagne when we sat down, to the raw and baked oysters as appetizers, the tidal fish special and NY strip steak, our evening was fantastic. Our server Tyanah, was extremely attentive from the beginning as we highlighted our anniversary as our occasion for the evening. We highly recommend the Bluffton Room, not only for special occasions, but for any night of the year. Thanks for such a great evening.

    We haven't been for a few years and it was a pleasure to be back. Certainly in our top 5 restaurants in Hilton Head/Bluffton. Very professional service, exceptional food and an attentive to details! Thank you Tatiana and a shout out to the great bartender with the Cooper martini. Anxious to be there when the roof top is open. We sat at a booth, but the bar is a great place with the same menu and some additional great items. See you soon.

    I made a reservation a month in advance and requested a booth. I then called 1 week prior to confirm the reservation and again asked specifically for a booth and was told that would not be a problem. When we arrived and we’re shown to our table I asked why we weren’t being seated at one of the 4 unoccupied booths only to be told that requests like that are not guaranteed. The hostess never provided a good explanation why we couldn’t have one of the unoccupied booths. We took our seats but we are very disappointed that our requests were not honored.

    From the starters, cape cod oysters, the seafood special grouper and filet mignon, this is th best restaurant in Beaufort county and the surrounding area. Our server, Tyanah, is the best. She made our guests feel really special from the beginning and and throughout the night. Thanks for a wonderful night.

    My wife and I enjoyed thoroughly enjoyed date night at the Bluffton Room. The food was flavorful and the dishes well thought out. The portions substantial without being too much food. I particularly enjoyed the caesar brulee and the standout dessert of table-side bananas foster. Our server (Tiyonah) was warm, attentive, and clear. She didn’t rush us and anticipated our needs in advance. We were seated in a spacious booth with a nice view out the window and smooth music to boot. We will definitely be returning!

    Request Dana as your server. She is a pro. We each had she crab soup and a mushroom soup. Both were delicious. We each had the filet mignon which were cooked perfectly and high quality cuts. Full of flavor. Nice Oregon Chardonnay. Great restaurant. Elegant decor. Even the music is great. We will be back often.
