We ordered the special and they substituted Penne Pasta versus Angel hair without advising or providing another option.

My favorite lunch restaurant--dinner is great too. There are so many great things on the menu I always have a hard time making up my mind. The desserts are great too if you can make it that far.

My husband had shrimp and scallops while I had the flounder. They both were excellent. I believe the flounder was the best I have ever had prepared for me. The meal and our... More

with all the new spots in Bluffton, May River Grill continues to be relevant delivering great food, outstanding service and delicious wine. My favorites are crispy scored flounder and Petes crispy duck but there are many other greats on the menu. Off menu but always available is the best fried green tomato salad anywhere on the planet! Enjoy the food... More

Adam was our waiter and did a fantastic job guiding us through the evening's specials, and just like their regular menu,there was a nice variety... More

We had dinner here on a Tuesday night to try out the early bird specials, but ended up ordering the regular specials for the evening - the walleye and the snapper topped with fresh crab meat. Both excellent. Our waiter was Adam who has been here a number of years - excellent and a thorough knowledge of the menu and... More
