We have eaten here twice. Once a late lunch and once with another couple for dinner. I thought there would be a varied selection of entrees on a dinner menu; but found that was not the case. The menu is limited in my opinion which made it difficult to order something other than the crab cake I had at my... More

May River Grill in Bluffton SC is one of my favorite dining establishments in the area. Our party of 8 was easily handled by Meagan who kept our drink glasses full and the food plates coming even though the restaurant was full and quite busy. The food selections are varied and the popular items at our table were the Parmesan... More

My wife and I visited the May River Grill last week after spending some time at the Bluffton Farm Market. We did not have a reservation, but were seated promptly and were welcomed warmly by Adam, who was terrific server throughout the course of a wonderful meal. My wife had the whitefish which was cooked to perfection. I opted for... More

My husband and I moved to Bluffton about a year ago and for fun we choose a new restaurant for our date nights. We read some reviews about May River Grill and decided to try it out for ourselves. The food wasn't too bad. Although for my husband and I it was over $120 and that's with only a glass... More

I will never write a negative reviews because I believe there is good in every place I visit so I will highlight the things I liked about this recommended restaurant. First, our taxi driver said the walleye is the best entree and that is what I ordered. Although, visiting from Atlanta and expecting local seafood, I am not sure why... More

Being a healthy eater, ie., fish, chicken, veggies, fruit, no dairy, no fast food, no processed foods, healthy fats only, etc., MRG is a nightmare for me. As the pictures show, everything is smothered in sauces, oils, breading, whatever. They do have a good wine selection though. Also very small and noisy. Tables so close the servers bump into your...

We make sure we eat here at least once every year when we are in the area. This place is not about the view, but the excellent food and service. Worth the price!!!!

We love their seafood dishes, especially their walleye pike. This is a great place for dinner or lunch, though lunch is a better bargain.

The food is good, the atmosphere is bad and the prices are way too expensive for a restaurant in a small strip shopping center!

We enjoyed the whole evening at this restaurant. We sat at the bar and watched the activity in the kitchen. Our waitress was very personable and gave good insight to the menu items. Visited with a local couple who also were seated at the bar which is always cool when in a new locale. The fried green tomato salad was... More
