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.

It was our 48th Anniversary, as soon as we were seated our waiter come to the table with two glasses of champagne in the house, introduced himself and asked us about our Anniversary, our wedding and how long we’ve been married.

We've eaten at top end places all over. We got the porterhouse for two. Absolutely no flavor. Apparently grilled with no seasoning. We paid $160 for a steak that was less tasteful than outback.

Will not be back...

The free valet parking was very valuable as my companion was using a walker. The service staff is excellent and very attentive. Nice wine list. Food was very good. We had a booth in a corner and it was a bit noisey but, tolerable.

As usual, the evening was excellent. The only disappointment was a limited wine choice due to a weekend run on the choices. If we go again on Tuesday or Wednesday we will call ahead for choices or bring our own. We may inquire whether our choices can be pre-paid and kept on hand for us. But-no complaints!

The sole meunière was outstanding as was the service. The Bluffton Room is welcome alternative to the casual dining ubiquitous in Bluffton. The dishes are thoughtful, well-prepared, and served with courtesy and expertise. We will certainly return.

The service was great, and the caesar salad made at the table was excellent. However, the remainder of the meal, was good, not great, and way overpriced. Would not dine here again. Many other options just as good for less $.

The steak was dry and under-seasoned and the chicken was not seasoned at all. While the scallops were tasty with the purée, they were also not seasoned. I can make better food at home and I’m not a professional chef. If I’m paying $50 for a steak it should be better than home cooking. The service was very good and everyone was super nice, but overall I can not recommend this establishment.

We went out for our anniversary and hadn't been to the Bluffton Room in a long time. We were very please with the entire experience. The menu offerings were quite varied, providing many options. The food was delicious and the service was great. We were lucky to eat in a corner of the room as I imagine it might have been a bit noisy had we been seated in the center of the dining room.

all in all I would give Bluffton Room high marks!

Had eaten here before and loved it - this time - attentive service was lacking by main server, food was not prepared correctly and lacked flavor and our main server actually explained our steaks had been sliced in half from a whole piece when we questioned the varying look of our 4 individual ribeyes. Made us feel we were not getting quality food and certainly not for the price. Very disappointing!
