The Bluffton Room is by far our favorite restaurant! The food is always spectacular and the service impeccable. We make it an evening out once a month.

Had lunch and dinner on our most recent visit to Bluffton and both meals were excellent. The staff is equally as wonderful!
Jesse and Cory were so welcoming... made us feel like we had been going there for years.

The whole experience at this restaurant was amazing! From the valet parking, to the friendly and attentive service (thanks, Corey!), to the generous portions of amazing chef creations, it's probably the best evening dining experience we've had in the low country. We will be back, and often!

We have wanted to try The Bluffton Room since it was recommended to us as a great experience when we arrived in Bluffton SC, but it was always booked. I had to book 30 days in advance to finally get a reservation. My reservations about the experience started with a phone call that was about timing. Our table was booked for 6PM and the caller made sure I understood the the table had been rebooked for 7:30. It was a cold and rainy night and when we arrived we were led to a table that was blasted by cold air when some one entered. We were also blasted by sound from the bar which as part of The Bluffton Room. Our waitress Tanya was great, very helpful explaining the menu. Our food was good, but not up to the standards of a great dining experience. My filet was medium rare instead of cool rare. My wife's duck was thickly sliced with a layer of fat that had to be cut away to eat the meat. There are other places to go in and around Bluffton.

Our server, Cory, was 110% amazing!! When we go back, we will be asking to sit in his table area.
The food was very, very good! 3 of us had the filet mignon & my boyfriend had the octopus. We only ran into one problem with my steak - I asked for medium & it came out rare. Cory immediately saw it & sent it back to the kitchen but when it came out the second time, the middle was still too raw. Cory insisted that he take it back for a third time but I didn’t want to cause a stir so I just ate around it. Cory then treated us to a special desert and apologized profusely for the inconvenience. Regardless of the steak, we will definitely be going back!!!
10/10 recommend for a wonderful date night!

We loved our night at The Bluffton Room! My boyfriend and I spend a lot of time in Hilton Head and are marking this down as one of our favorite finds. Solid wine list and wonderful staff. We had the Dover Sole with the horseradish whipped potatoes and we loved every bite. It’s nice to find a go-to for fresh healthy (not counting the Brownie w Carmel Ice Cream dessert we had ...yum) options. Thanks for a wonderful night!

Just the best food, prepared perfectly and presented by a team that is both professional and friendly. Foie Gras starter followed by Dover Sole Meuniere accompanied by a 1er Cru Chablis and finished by a brownie in its own cast iron skillet topped with vanilla ice cream. Definitely five stars..

Delicious dinner - steak was "to die for". The Bananas Foster although good was mostly ice cream and barely a banana in sight. However, did not ruin the experience. Nice ambience and good service.

We went for a early New Year’s Eve dinner. We were seated promptly at a booth in the bar area. Had the special 42oz porterhouse for 2 which was great. Our waitress Toyna was terrific and we all had a great time. We have dined here several times and they never disappoint. We will be back.

The Good - food and service are always outstanding here. Best in Bluffton and probably best when comparing to HHI and Savannah.
The Bad - In October, I made my reservations for New Year’s Eve. It was changed 4 times in the 48 hours prior to our first bite.
The Ugly - nothing ugly about The Bluffton Room.

Great dinner - always order the Dover Sole and French Fries (although this time the fries weren’t as good as the last time). Celebrating Christmas, we dined with another couple who were there for the first time. From soup thru dessert, excellent. Cory’s service was outstanding. Highly recommended.

The Bluffton Room has been consistently a high quality dining experience since the first day it opened it's doors. Where else can you find Dover Sole on a menu anywhere? Those who love steak rave about it. The ambience is as good as it gets. When the weather is nice and the bar window is open whether you are inside or outside it's a very unique positive.
