The Bluffton Room
Please note that due to the size of our dining room and our tableside service, the restaurant is not suited to children under 13 years of age. Thank you for your understanding.
Love Friday lunches! 25 cent martinis!
Food was great service outstanding the only negative 22oz ribeye was not good
It was very good. Our service and food were amazing. We got there early last reservation available.
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.
Always a great experience. Was a little noisy as window was open and bar was crowded, but service and food was outstanding.
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.
The best dining experience in the low country day in day out, bar none!
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.
Friends in town. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the entire dining experience. Tanya was a pleasure to have as our server.
Wonderful service and delicious food! Love to eat here
Great food and venue
Great as usual.. people and the food are the reasons to go
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.
Everything was terrific! I requested a booth and the five of us were very happy to enjoy our own little spot of pleasure. Our waiter was wonderful - answered our questions, knew his menu, etc and treated us as we are accustomed. Could not have been better! Looks as though I have found a new "hot spot" for lunch on a Friday!
We enjoy the Bluffton Room as a reliable high-end restaurant with great dishes, seasonally adjusted, 3-4 times each year. On Tuesday's they have a great "Bar Only Burger Tuesday" which is just incredible. No reservations, first come, first serve for that event. You get a lot of attention here. They also have great valet parking as Bluffton Old Town can sometimes be a challenge finding a space near your destination. Unfortunately on this specific visit, the duck enter' was truly unacceptable. Cooked perfectly to medium rare, which it should be, the duck breast was way too chewy. We had them re-cook it to near medium which improved it but not to what we would call the Bluffton Room level of expectations. In our opinion is was just poorly sourced. On the positive side, our firsts, grilled octopus and the beet salad were awesome, nicely presented. I had the 8 ounce Filet Mignon, medium rare also it was absolutely mouth-watering incredible. Sorry no room for dessert! And a great wine list, priced fairly instead of the with the usual 2 1/2 time retail pricing. Awesome.
My friend and I enjoyed a long chatty dinner in one of the big booths at The Bluffton Room. The service was attentive and on point, and we shared the Dover sole with two side dishes. Simple, elegant and well prepared, and our bill (with shared dessert and a cocktail) was well within what felt reasonable for the evening. I'll definitely go again (and again).
Food was excellent. Artichoke app along w steak and sides were delicious.. table side Caesar salad was bland and way overrated by waitress. Skip it
Excellent experience all around.
Took friends for a first time lunch for them. They loved as we also. Friday New Orleans themed lunch is always outstanding.
Very popular for Friday lunch, so it was crowded and noisy. The Creole specialties are recommended, since we don’t normally have the opportunity. This has become a Bluffton tradition.
We got there as soon as the restaurant opened at 5PM and they seated us at a 2 top against the wall. Since reservations are highly recommended they would have known it was going to be a slow night, but we got one of the worst tables in the place. I ordered to seared Corvina, and my mom ordered the Lamb Chops. The Corvina was dry and overcooked and was rectangular in shape, like it was pre-packaged. It could have used a lemon-butter drizzle of some kind, but even still I was expecting something that looked like fish, not something the shape of a can of SPAM. The Lamb Chops were under-seasoned and undercooked, and although the outside of the chop was flavorful the inside had no taste; it didn't even taste like lamb, it just had no flavor at all.
With 1 appetizer and 1 salad, 2 entrees, 2 desserts and a bottle of sparkling water the bill came to about $162. Neither of us had any alcohol, so I can hardly imagine the bill with a cocktail each and a bottle of wine. By the time you tack on the customary 20% tip, the bill was about $200, or $100 a person.
There are a lot of places to spend $100 per person in the area and get what you pay for, and there are a lot of places less than $100 per person that are a much better value. If you have a lot of money that you don't know what to do with and want to appear trendy, this is the places for you. If not, the food is better and less expensive across the street.
Awesome staff! Super polite! Dreamy decor and terrific steakhouse!
Wonderful lunch with friends. Everything was delicious especially the grilled octopus
Excellent as always - just keeps getting better and better.
We have been coming to the Bluffton Room since it opened 5 years ago.
In fact we owned the condo, above the yoga studio so we watched it being built.
This week was their 5th anniversary and we were invited to come celebrate. The food and the experience is always unique and very special!!! We love the Ceasar salad prepared table side. Tonight we shared the bone in rib eye cooked to perfection. Our sides were the Brussel sprouts with bacon so delicious!!! We ended our mean with key lime pie... our favorite is bananas foster prepared table side but we were trying to be good.
When in Bluffton or Hilton Head... make your reservations for the Bluffton Room!!!
Went for Bluffton Room’s Anniversary week-promised lots of specials-used usual menu with less than a handful of specials-we tried one. Our very expensive steaks off the regular menu were all over cooked. Drinks were fine. Tasty ice cream over a dead brownie
Undoubtedly my favorite restaurant in the area.
We love nights out at The BLUFFTON Room. The food is always excellent and we love the ambiance. This venue is highly recommended!!!
Our anniversary dinner could not have been better. good friends, great service (thank you Tanya and Trevor) and wonderful food. A real memory of our 49th anniversary for sure!
Wonderful food and service. Ben was amazing and everything we ate was great! Drinks were also outstanding!
The food and service were amazing. Tanya was attentive and helpful. It was our anniversary and she brought us complimentary champagne which was so lovely. She made great suggestions and we had a fabulous time.
needs wall decorations to absorb noise level when the restaurant is full.
Incredible service and dinner! Table side salad and dessert prep was over the top. We will return.
Fabulous restaurant! Food was amazing....Tatiana, our server made our dining experience unforgettable! Put the Bluffton Room at the top of your list!!
Outstanding food and service. A bit noisy, but not enough to be of concern. Overall, an outstanding restaurant.
Tonja Hughes is one of the best servers ever! Personable and efficient.
