When we arrived and saw May River Grill crowded in this small town, we were optimistic in view of the other reviews. It was no letdown. The menu was outstanding, supplemented by specials to include two fish dishes, two meats, a seafood pasta and at least two appetizers. I am sure they had dessert surprises, but we said uncle after...

We live in areas with great restaurants. Palm Beach, the Florida Keys and Highlands, NC and we just had dinner at the May River Grill in Bluffton, SC. It was not only good but crazy good and our waiter Dave was great. Do yourself a favor and go.

If I had not read about this place I would never had stopped. From the outside it looks just like any old diner in small town. What pleasant surprise. The service was very good and fast. We ordered the home made meat loaf with vegetables and sweet potatoes. Before our entree arrived we were served hot biscuits with a sweet... More

The chef/owner has Midwestern roots so you can expect some excellent Michigan/Wisconsin fish dishes. Very casual, very inexpensive and very good. Always packed with locals. Excellent wine list which probably surpirses many.

Had Ribeye steak special along with two others in our party. Women had Scallops and Weiner snitzel. Food was fantastic. Everyone raved about the food. Service was outstanding and the wine list is exceptional. Would return here again. It is not cheap but it is worth the money

First let me say that I like to dine at restaurants that the locals frequent as well as the tourist. This restaurant was recommended by the concierge where we were staying. It was also recommended by several local individuals as well who live around Bluffton. Dress: Casual We did not have reservations but walked in around 7pm on a Monday... More

MRG is one of our favorite low country restaurants with great menu and special selections. The fried green tomatoe salad is exceptional. Good wine selection and service is always first rate.

Th food and service here are very good. I especially like the wiener schnitzel and the fish special. My only problem is the tables are close together and when crowded the noise level is very high. You almost feel you have to shout to your dinner companions to follow a conversation.

Across from the Golf Pro Shop you'll find the May River Grill, adjacent to the turn on the golf course, overlooking the fabulously maintained fairways and scenic views. The assortment of salads and sandwiches gave everyone a choice. Service is good, price is fair and portions are generous. The sweet potato fries were the crispest, best I've ever ever had,... More
