Small intimate restaurant with comfortable seating. The wine and beer selection was very good and reasonably priced. The beet salad was excellent though it only had 4 pieces of beets(2 beets cut into halves). We ordered the 6oz filet and the pork chop. Both were cooked to perfection. The disappointment of the night was the table side bananas foster. The bananas were not cooked. They should have had a nice sweet glaze on them. Instead they looked like bananas sliced in half, served over vanilla ice cream and then covered in a sweet ( not carmally) sauce.

Our server was very attentive and all of the staff was very friendly. it was a ve try nice dining experience but that dessert needs to be skipped. We should have ordered the brownie with vanilla ice cream. Next time…

Tatiana the best ! I had the fried chicken sandwich for the 2nd time, very crispy, no hot sauce for me. Suggest since a little dry as I did with leftover next day, little bit of mayo mixed with honey mustard. Fries delicious too ! Burgers always great too ! Love dinner there too.

We had the most enjoyable time at The Bluffton Room. Our server, Tanya, was the most delightful person! She was knowledgeable of everything. The food was incredible. The four of us all ordered different items and everything came out timely and delicious.

We come to Hilton Head every year for our family vacation. Our anniversary is while we go on vacation. My husband and I get to go out to celebrate and we decided to drive to The Bluffton Room to celebrate this year. We loved it! Cory, our server was fantastic! The food was very good! Highly recommend and we will for sure return!

I order the veal bolognese. I was very watery, not thick and creamy as a bolgonese sauce should be. I don’t think there was any tomato in it. There was very little veal. I had a beet salad and it only had one small beet cut into fourths. The bread was good. There was butter with paprika in it which was not impressive. As expensive and reputable as this place is, it was a disappointment. I was hungry at that point. I ate 1/2 the bolgonese and then drove to McDonald’s for a quarter pounder.

Friday lunch at Bluffton Room is great! Same overall great experience as dinner time but with a New Orleans flair to the menu. Tatiana was a great server and made my Birthday Lunch special! Make a reservation in advance as they are still keeping tables spaced out which limits their capacity.

Amazing! As usual!!! What sets this apart from other high end steak houses is the small town ambiance. I’ve been there probably less than 10 times but the staff knows my name and what I drink. Lovely lovely people and yummy food!!!!

I booked weeks in advance for a booth to enable my husband to be able to hear but they wouldn’t accommodate. A booth sat vacant the entire time we were there. It was raining, Saturday night, and they gave the valet the night off - we were wet, entrees were inedible although appetizer and dessert were good. Website is out of date and wine and entrees we wanted were unavailable.

Thank you for your comments, I want to say that all feedback helps us identify opportunities and helps us get better - but sometimes the accounting of the details is not accurate. For example, we would never guarantee a booth seating- however we note the request. Also,I can assure you,no booths were empty on a Saturday evening. If I recall correctly, your husband enjoyed his halibut, and we happily replaced your duck for another selection? We would love to have you back, pls call me directly.

We sat at the bar….great people watching. Corey was outstanding….asking and remembering our names. We had oysters and the octopus appetizers. Both delicious. Then the Feta dip…also very tasty. Then split the beef sliders. Perfect amount of food paired with good cocktails and a generous pour of wine. We will make this a regular stop when dining out.
