    Service was fantastic, our server Christopher was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. I had the she crab soup for a starter which was delicious, my husband had the beef carpaccio which was good but over salted. I had the salmon for my entree which was flavorful and cooked and seasoned perfectly. My husband had the 8 oz. filet which he said was cooked perfectly and very tender but too aggressively salted. We both had potatoes as a side which were under seasoned. We shared the brownie skillet which was just amazing. Overall, a really good meal, made better due to our incredible server and would definitely go back.

    I have to admit this is our “go to” restaurant for fine dining as it is always excellent in every category. The new ownership has not changed that one bit, service, selection, quality everything is the same. We have eaten at fine restaurants worldwide and in major cites all over the US and I’ll put them up against any of them!

    The food, the staff, - cannot say enough about the Bluffton Room! From the kale salad to the special entree of Porgy to the surprise key lime pie to celebrate our birthdays, this place was perfect. Our server and helper knew exactly when to engage in conversation or ask if we needed anything. Our meals were described perfectly and who knew kale could taste so good??? We will be back!!

    We have happy memories from years past of the Bluffton Room. Unfortunately, our current experience could not have been more disappointing. Given the quality and poor serving size, the food is absurdly overpriced. The dining room noise effectively made conversation near impossible. Much of the dining space was closed, apparently due to a lack of help. All in all, it's too bad we can't go back a few years to enjoy what was one of our favorite restaurants.

    The Bluffton RoomResponded on September 6, 2022Dear Robert,- Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. Let me begin by saying that we are highly appreciative when a guest shares a negative experience with us- as it helps identify areas for us to improve on. That said, I am dismayed that your food experience was unimpressive and hope you will share some further detail with me at the restaurant. It is our genuine hope to have you return as a satisfied patron again and look forward to your communication. Best, Jeff

    This is easily the best dining experience in the local area. They have been consistently the best service, best food and dining ambience for the last 3 years. This is our go to restaurant for special occasions throughout the year and when friends come from out of town to visit. The Bluffton Room never disappoints.

    If I could have given The Bluffton Room more than 5 stars I would. We have eaten here before and they never fail to impress. It was our Anniversary and we were immediately greeted with Happy Anniversary. Our server Taina asked if she could treat us to a glass of bubbly. It was such a great start to our wonderful dinner. Taina asked if we wanted the fresh sourdough bread. It’s made fresh everyday and served with butter topped with a little salt and paprika. My husband ordered baked oysters which was one of the special appetizers. He really enjoyed them. I ordered the tomato salad which was lite and delicious. I had some trouble deciding what to eat for my entree since I knew everything was so well made. Both my husband and I had the Veal Bolognese. It was so good we could have licked our plates clean. The restaurant was full but quiet. I hope at some point they will reinstate making the Caesar Salad table side. It’s the best I’ve ever eaten. We will definitely continue to eat at The Bluffton Room again and again. Thank you for adding to our celebration.
