Just the best food, prepared perfectly and presented by a team that is both professional and friendly. Foie Gras starter followed by Dover Sole Meuniere accompanied by a 1er Cru Chablis and finished by a brownie in its own cast iron skillet topped with vanilla ice cream. Definitely five stars..

Delicious dinner - steak was "to die for". The Bananas Foster although good was mostly ice cream and barely a banana in sight. However, did not ruin the experience. Nice ambience and good service.

We went for a early New Year’s Eve dinner. We were seated promptly at a booth in the bar area. Had the special 42oz porterhouse for 2 which was great. Our waitress Toyna was terrific and we all had a great time. We have dined here several times and they never disappoint. We will be back.

The Good - food and service are always outstanding here. Best in Bluffton and probably best when comparing to HHI and Savannah.
The Bad - In October, I made my reservations for New Year’s Eve. It was changed 4 times in the 48 hours prior to our first bite.
The Ugly - nothing ugly about The Bluffton Room.

Great dinner - always order the Dover Sole and French Fries (although this time the fries weren’t as good as the last time). Celebrating Christmas, we dined with another couple who were there for the first time. From soup thru dessert, excellent. Cory’s service was outstanding. Highly recommended.

The Bluffton Room has been consistently a high quality dining experience since the first day it opened it's doors. Where else can you find Dover Sole on a menu anywhere? Those who love steak rave about it. The ambience is as good as it gets. When the weather is nice and the bar window is open whether you are inside or outside it's a very unique positive.

Best restaurant in the Bluffton/HHI area. Excellent food from a creative chef, the best service at every level (by far), fun cocktails, and a modern space. Bonus is they take covid seriously. Go!!

We hadn’t eaten at The Bluffton Room since this COVID-19 terribleness! We came and thoroughly enjoyed our experience!
Between the service, the food and our wonderful waitress (Tatiana), we had a perfect “date” night! Thank you Bluffton Room! And keep up the good work at the front door! Scanned for temperature and hand sanitizer on the tables! We will definitely be back soon!🌻

The food, service wonderful.
The prices were high. A$40 bottle of champagne cost $140. That’s quite a markup.
Our bill was close to $400.

Definitely a dining experience for special occasions. Delicious entrees and decadent desserts. Waitstaff is professional and personable - available when needed but not hovering. A must order - French fries. Sounds mundane but they are THE BEST ever. They offer table dining as well as 4 or 5 booths. You also can sit at the bar - in warmer weather a wall of windows can be opened and seating is offered along the backside of the bar. There are a few tables for outdoor dining too. The Bluffton Room is highly recommended.

This was our second time dining out on the patio. We appreciated the safety precautions in place and the warm cozy atmosphere (fluffy red blankets were offered to us). The menu is creative and offers a variety of delicious options. We appreciated seeing local beverages offered as well. Service is attentive without being overbearing. We would not hesitate to return.

We had dinner for our anniversary on a busy Friday. They were waiting for us, had our table ready and were seated promptly. While our waitress, Tatianna, was serving a table out side, Cory, our favorite waiter/bartender, greeted us and brought water, The rest of the dinner went as smoothly. Our steaks were perfectly done, the wine perfect, and the service outstanding.

The Bluffton Room has done a wonderful job protecting customers from Covid-19. Tables are well separated, they check temps of everyone entering, and the staff is meticulous in wearing their masks.

This was not an inexpensive experience, but well worth the visit. We plan to return!

My date and I were looking for a nice dinner out in a safe environment inside, as the weather was chilly and blustery. We ate at the bar at the Bluffton Room which has a great street view for people watching. The bartenders and wait staff could not have been nicer or more pleasant to chat with. Their signature Manhattan cocktail was smoky and delicious. Beef carpaccio appetizer, perfectly-prepared salmon, and house-made key lime pie made for a perfect splurge meal out. We will be back!
