Fabulous dinner celebrating my wife’s birthday. We were treated like royalty and had the best steak (Porterhouse) with baked oysters, Caesar, mushrooms, and asparagus with big wine selections

Absolutely delicious! I literally have not one bad thing to say about The Bluffton Room. Appetizer, salad, main course and desert were all amazing. The staff were all friendly and made us feel welcome. Our waitress was so sweet and made a killer side table salad. Can’t wait to try the Bananas Foster. This was much more than a meal it literally was an experience and my husband and I will most definitely be back. Highly recommend!

Our dinner was excellent. Filet and salmon. The table side Ceasar salad was just OK. We have had much better at a less expensive restaurant.

Everything about our experience at the Bluffton Room was outstanding. The she-crab soup was incredibly flavorful, the porterhouse for 2 was cooked perfectly, and the service we received from the staff was impeccable. Tonja's attentiveness and professional demeanor really made our evening that much more enjoyable. If you are visiting Bluffton, The Bluffton Room is a must !!!

Excellent food and service in an upscale way. Due to layout, intimate quiet and private dining is not possible though it is still very pleasurable. Be sure to have a reservation as it is popular and seating is limited.

First off.. They are one of the few places in Old Town Bluffton that offers FREE valet parking, which is huge if you older and don't want to walk 3-4 blocks.
The food was prepared exactly as we asked. Presentation was perfect.
Our server and all the wait staff were very friendly and gracious..

We arrived for a very special 32nd anniversary dinner, we quickly seated and presented with glasses of Prosecco on the house. Tonja, our wonderful server, guided us through a fantastic dining experience. This is our new, special restaurant.

One of our Bluffton favorites. Always good food. Always good service. Always noisy. Always expensive, but half the price is always a good bottle of wine. We went a little later this time (7:30). There was actually one empty small table, and we saw some turnover at the popular bar seating. Staff were very friendly. We like the valet parking in Old Town Bluffton. We normally can find our car right outside the door.

Everything was outstanding, ambiance was fabulous, noise level was perfect even with it being small with bar. Service was great- greeted me and wife by our name, at the end of dinner asked if they could get our car. All wished us a happy anniversary. They did the little things that made evening perfect. Definitely will be back and is now one of our go to spots

The food, service and ambiance are all exceptional. On a Saturday night the noise level was a bit high but it did not detract from the experience. Prices trend higher than other local restaurants but I cannot complain about the quality.

She Crab Soup was terrific as was the Carpaccio (thicker than usual, but my wife likes it that way. 5 of us found our entrees (Steaks for 2, Salmon, Hali it and Chicken) to be okay. Salmon was judged a little dry, Halibut was somewhat tasteless and dry, chicken was overwhelmed by accompaniments.

This is by far one of our Top 5 restaurants in the Lowcountry. It feels like a big city restaurant from the food and ambiance perspective. Chef Jeff Congdon is incredibly talented and creative. I love that he keeps some of the standards on the menu year-round while changing up the seasonal items on a regular basis.

The Friday New Orleans lunch is a fantastic way to kick off your weekend. But be sure to make a reservation as it is a very popular weekly event.

The whole staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Be sure to treat yourself to a tableside Caesar salad or Bananas Foster. Both entertaining and delicious! Old school for sure! You will leave with a smile on your face and look forward to when you can do it all over again!

Went for our anniversary celebration. They gave each of us a small glass of Prosecco for an anniversary toast. Nice touch. We shared the Dover Sole which was very good but a little too salty. The sides, spinach and horseradish mashed potatoes were very good also. The dessert, warm brownie with ice cream was excellent. Restaurant was crowded and everyone seemed to be having a good time. Perfect place for a special night out or if you sit at the bar, any night. Open Fridays for lunch.

Our server, Tonja, was excellent. An asset to the establishment.

We enjoyed a very nice evening; however, because we
chose The Bluffton Room to celebrate a birthday, it
surprised us that the restaurant did nothing in the way of a small dessert for our guest. The server kindly acknowledged our guest’s birthday, but that was it.
As the cost for dinner is relatively high, a small
dessert doesn’t seem too much to expect. It would
have ended our evening much nicer. As it was, just to have been presented with our bill, left us with a less than celebratory sense of our dining experience.

This was our third visit to this restaurant. Made reservations 4 weeks ago. Was seated close to the front door and next to a large table of approx 14 people. Almost every customer who walked by our table bumped into my chair. The noise level from the next table made it impossible to carry a conversation. Service between courses was extremely slow. Took 2 1/2 hours to dine. The server forgot our only side. The value was lacking considering the cost and slow service. Will probably not bring out of town guests to this restaurant again.

I have to say for a Wednesday night they were fairly busy. Usually is a good sign !
We both ordered filet, mine was slightly burned on one side, my friend’s was perfect med rare ! Trimming portions could be a little more which consists one mushroom, 2 asparagus and 2 spoons full mash potatoes.
I highly recommend local restaurants install a water filter for their drinking water and iced teas.
My waitress was happy, friendly, attentive with great similes 👍

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and experience at the Bluffton Room. We started out our meal with bread service and the lemon bread by a local baker was phenomenal. We all ordered the Caesar salad and would highly recommend for the freshness and flavor of the dressing. All of our entrees were high quality and delicious. The service was friendly and efficient. It’s so nice to have this restaurant nearby in Bluffton.

Great food and great service. This was our 5th time dining at this restaurant when visiting from out of town and it has never disappointed - dinner or lunch. Great wine list. This is definitely one of my favorite places.
