This restaurant never disappoints. This time was even more special. We had several leftovers we asked to be packed up to enjoy at home. They weren’t immediately brought to our table, so unfortunately we left without them. When we got home we called the restaurant, they offered to drive them over to our house!! Now that’s what I call exceptional service!

Our neighbor recommended the Bluffton Room for our anniversary. It was outstanding, not only the food, ambiance, but also the wait staff! Our server, Chris was the epitome of kindness and knowledgeable with regard to the menu offerings. We had a wonderful time.

We celebrated my wife's birthday with friends. The booth requested was made available for us. Service was, as usual excellent . This is the only local place to get a Caesar salad made at the table. Their grilled artichokes and grilled octopus is outstanding and are not available anywhere else. Our only complaint was that the grouper special was underdone. Would we go back ...ABSOLUTELY!

Everything we want and expect from the Bluffton Room. Great food and service. Can’t say we are regulars, but we may start going more often. It is clear the regulars are acknowledged and appreciated. And I don’t mean that in a negative way. Classy place for a classy experience.

Over $30 for a breaded piece of grouper that was mediocre at best. Everything must be ordered al a carte. Not worth the money. So noisy we couldn't talk to each other and so crowded the waiters were constantly bumping into my husband's chair. We won't go back.

Everything was excellent from the drinks to the bananas foster. The bone-in filet and table side caesar salad were amazing. Will definitely be back the next time we are in town.

If the service was better it might justify the price , 104 dollars before the tip. Still water, Cesar salad for two, 6 oz fillet, pasta special and a shared desert.
Multiple wait staff throughout the course of the meal with inattentive service. I would not expect the need to ask for additions to the meal such as salt/pepper or more than a single small slice of bread.
Tableside preparation of Caesar was a nice touch although it was done without much flare. Should you need to ask for anchovy fillets to top it?
My pasta was good, bucatini with seared diver scallops and shrimp although the portion was small and I left the restaurant still a little hungry.
I will give it another try, perhaps the service was off that night but if I have a similar experience I won't return and would not recommend it to friends.

I want to give our waitress credit for being very accommodating with several requests. She was knowledgeable about the menu and enthusiastic about the food. It seems a bit pricey but that may
our fault. $260plus for three people seems high for Bluffton dining.

We went to the Bluffton Room last night to celebrate my wife’s birthday! Everything was perfect! I ordered the special petite fillet and my wife had the lamb. We both really enjoyed our meals. My wife stated that the lamb was the best she has ever had. Tatiana was our server and she was wonderful! Thank you for a wonderful evening!

Hands down the best restaurant I have ever been too, not just for food but the service as well. We always ask for Tonya when dining at the Bluffton Room, I have never had a waitress compare to her, ever! The employees truly care that you have a good experience. The manager is all over the restaurant doing what he needs to do to help his employees anyway possible.

Our dining experience at the Bluffton Room was nothing short of FANTASTIC. We had a most wonderful server, Tanya, who exemplifies professional in the food serving business. The Caesar salad prepared table side set the tone for what was to come. Our steak was prepared perfectly along with the sides served. We enjoyed each mouthful and oooohed and aaaahhed with each bite. Tanya insisted we try her favorite dessert, a chocolate brownie with salted caramel ice cream. Yes, it was worth the calories.

We are thrilled to find a local restaurant that understands a perfect cut of meat and provides a wonderful atmosphere. We will definitely return and ask for Tanya again. It was a perfect evening.

Our family enjoyed our dinner at The Bluffton Room. It was our first time visiting. The crafted cocktails were tasty, the food specials were creative, and the table side Caesar salad was artfully done. Our server was very attentive and engaged with our group. The signature entree meals are expensive (on the verge of overpriced) but there are salad and soup options at more affordable prices. I would recommend The Bluffton Room for special occasions because of its intimate atmosphere.

The Bluffton Room has always been one of our “go to” places for special occasions but we may have to remove it from our favorites list if things don’t improve. The real problem is the food while still good quality, the salt and seasoning content is off the charts! Our previous visit was the first time we noticed the saltier seasoning but this time, it was off the charts!! The worst offender was our filets which both were so salty we could hardly eat them. The previous visit, it was the Dover sole. One more time and we’re done.

We have loved the Bluffton Room in the past . We always love the Friday lunches. However, this time we were disappointed. While I loved my fish and my friend loved her artichoke appetizer, the chicken entrees were overcooked and dry. The caesar salad was also a disappointment. The Bluffton Room is an expensive place to eat, we expect more for our money.
