3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014 NEW

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

There are so many new restaurants in our area, we forget about this one. But a return trip puts it back on our radar. It is the only place I know of to get Walleye, which is prepared Parmesan crusted, topped with a caper sauce. Next time I think I will ask for no sauce, or sauce on the side,... More

We have eaten here several times and most of the dishes are excellent. We had a bad experience with stone crab claws and the seafood curry. However the flounder and steak were excellent. We had one dinner where the person bussing tables kept trying to remove dishes before we were done. Once and we could have passed over this. However... More

The staff and owner are terrific. Great place for the foodies, great place for an enlightened conversation with friends. Our favorite Bluffton/Hilton Head restaurant.

May River Grill was highly recommended by a local gentleman we encountered in historic downtown Bluffton. The restaurant is in a small strip shopping center, with a down home yet upscale feel inside. The menu is somewhat varied, and the wine list is interesting. We arrived fairly early and were promptly seated before the restaurant filled. We ordered our appetizer... More

Not only was the service fantastic but so was our meals. Three of us each had different entrees and each of us had a great meal. Portions are generous and the presentation wonderful. I had the halibut and would be hard pressed not to have again upon our return. Large menus with equally large number of specials.
