As usual, the food and service were excellent. The wine list is not over the top, but you can always find an appropriate selection whatever your price range. One recommendation—the huge serrated steak knife is over, overkill for the filet. Half the weight and a smooth blade will do it.
We love this restaurant. Always rake a both. Our server was wonderful, smart and did an awesome presentation of our bananas Foster. We did not give 5 stars on the food only because the portion size on all our fish entrees were very small. The sides were generous but the shared sole and our friends’ salmon Was a bit skimpy. Great taste and flavors but wanted more. The beet salad a little small as well. We will be back because service and quality is excellent.
Friday girls birthday lunch. Great food and exceptional service for six. I called the restaurant half hour before arriving and requested that two champagne bottles be on ice and at the ready upon arrival. They were there as requested! The manager also met most of our party with umbrellas in a torrential down pour while they were exiting their car. A very fun afternoon was spent in an excellent and accommodating restaurant.
The Bluffton Room is absolutely incredible! I’m from NY where i have the best restaurants and I’m a total foodie so it’s kind of hard to blow me away. It began with them having my favorite and rare wine on the menu. Then the chatuccerie board was amazing and such interesting combos. I had the little neck, shrimp and house chorizo in buccatini pasta for my entree and it was fabulous. The bananas foster made tableside for dessert was fantastic. My mom loved her steak too! Corey our waiter was amazing!! I will totally be back every visit!
Our dinner was fabulous, service great, and food outstanding.....love this restaurant!!!
So GOOD! Been planning to try The Bluffton Room for over a year. Went looking for a quiet yet not stuffy evening with exceptional food - and we found it. Had the petite filet with Blue Cheese and Shitake mushrooms. Husband had the Dover Sole for two, excellently prepared with white wine, lemon and butter. We made our own Surf and Turf and added the white asparagus. Just the right amount of food as the Dover Sole is a very mild light fish. Oh, and adding a bottle of wine just made it all more enjoyable!
Not for those on a budget but a wonderful place. Great staff and even better food. Tried the elk and it was terrific. And a beautiful setting.
Food was good, waitress was nice, noise was as intolerable
Outstanding service by our waiter Corey
The food was outstanding but the service was not....waiter seemed overwhelmed and neglected us at times to pay attention to a rather rowdy business group right next to us.
Great food and poor service are not a good combination in my book.
awesome food, great service. We go for the Friday only New Orleans style lunch. They have 25 cent martinis to pair with their amazing burgers, salads and seafood.
Amazing dinner. Great food and service. Had an out of town guest who said it was one of his best meals ever.
This was a nice dinner but there wasn’t enough value for the dollar for me. In my opinion a $50 steak should come with potatoes.
I was told the Bluffton Room only opens on Friday afternoons for lunch only besides their standard dinner times. They pay homage to New Orleans by featuring a cajun menu and playing New Orleans type music. My wife and I made a reservation and say outside which was perfect. They also feature 25 cent martinis. Our service by Tonja was fantastic and the food was outstanding. Our new Friday lunch place.
The food has been good both times I have been to TBR not remarkable but good however the venue and service have been outstanding. Whether at an outside table or in an interior booth it was wonderful.
The Bluffton Room is one of those places that is pricey but good value. Exceptional cooking and breadth of menu. Who else does tableside service, like Caesar salad and flambee dessert? Excellent staff and a reasonably priced wine list. THE special occasion place in the Bluffton/HHI area.
Food was exceptional. By far, the most delicious steak I ever had. Service left a lot to be desired. They want to be an exclusive/upscale steakhouse based on their prices, but I've had better service at chain restaurants. I had to flag down random servers for drink refills. Our server never asked if we wanted another cocktail when our glasses were empty. We waited on our food for a long time, but we never got an update on when our entrees were coming out. We again waited forever for finished plates to be picked up. Be warned: there aren't a lot of good tables in this small place. If you can't get a booth, you will very likely be up against bar noise and heavy foot traffic. The whole experience lacked class, except for the high prices of course. Even as a local, I most likely won't return, but I will be dreaming about that steak for weeks to come.
Service and food was great. It was for my birthday and they made it special.
Tonja was wonderful as always. The foie gras was to die for. Can’t wait to return.
Excellent meal, great wine and the best service we’ve experienced. Table side Caesar-who does that anymore?! Definitely will return.
Excellent food and service. Server Rosina was outstanding.
Experience for an anniversary dinner with our family! Bluffton Room went above and beyond for us we had a great experience!
Service and ambiance was incredible! Our table wasn’t ready so we sat at the bar, and was greeted by a hilarious bartender. Drinks were top notch and he transferred them to our table. The Duck was the best duck I had ever had! However I am sad to say I was diaaapointed in the bone in ribeye. I ordered medium rare, and it was close to medium well, and very tough. Not what I expected for a 50 dollar piece of meat. I will return, but not for awhile, and I certainly won’t be getting the ribeye.
Nestled in Old Town Bluffton, this is possibly the best restaurant in Beaufort County. Menu is creative and beautifully prepared. We had Dover sole and the Filet mignon special. The equal of many Manhattan restaurants. Service was pleasant, responsive and attentive. An experience well worth the visit
There were 4 of us for dinner and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals as well as the very friendly and knowledgeable server. Parking can be challenging in this area of town, but The Bluffton Room has valet parking to solve that problem. It was our 45th anniversary which made this first visit very special. We can’t wait to go back.
Have been to every steak house in Hilton Head and Bluffton area at one time or another and this is the best. Filet so juicy and flavorful. My wife says their May River Manhattan is the best she has ever had. The raw oysters were phenomenal. Everything about the place if first class.
We have eaten here several times now. We live in Beaufort, after living in Charleston almost all my life. It is well worth the drive from Beaufort. By far the best service we have had in ANY local restaurant outside of Charleston. This will be a permanent fixture on our "go to" list. We still frequently go to Charleston in order to get both excellent food and service ~ here, we get both!
As always great lunch spot to bring clients or business associates! Or the random Friday-off lunch! Great service, drinks, food and most importantly ambiance!
Very slow service
Fantastic restaurant. We were staying at the Montage and decided to leave property as there are few options at Palmetto Bluff. We were overly impressed with the food....by far some of the best steaks we've ever had.
I usually get the Dover Sole, but instead got the ribeye. Now I know that the Dover Sole can’t be beat. A great dining experience as always.
Ken was outstanding. As always, a 10+ experience for not only Bluffton, but for Bluffton/Hilton Head...
Exceptional, as always!
We celebrated our 40th Anniversary here. The service, food, and wine selections were all exquisite. We had Bananas Foster for dessert, just as we did 40 years ago during our honeymoon in Savannah.
I highly recommend The Bluffton Room and an to eat there again.
Artistic and creative menu. Service impeccable. Accommodating staff. Caesar salad made tableside was beyond excellent! All seafood and vegetables fresh and tasty. Highly recommend for a special occasion, a little pricey. Impressive wine list and reasonably priced.
Good: ambiance, espresso machine, bread/butter, wine
Bad: bad oyster and awkwardly unapologetic about it
Second time we visited the restaurant in 5 days. Once again the food and service was fantastic. Trevor is very accommodating and really does a great job managing everything.
Amazing food and service! The table was perfect, a cozy booth.
We enjoyed an excellent dinner and had great service as well. The scallops appetizer was one of the best scallops I have ever had. We will definitely be back the next time we are in the area.
