Like visiting an old friend.

We are often pulled away with all the new offerings in Bluffton so its nice when you take a break and revisit an old friend; one who is always there for you and is consistent in it offerings.

We met friends for dinner, who suggested this place. What a great choice! Wide selection of seafood, and all prepared very well. Nice wine list, and also by the glass. Our server was attentive but not intrusive. We were catching up, and our server understood and gave us plenty of time to order. We would definitely go back when we're... More

From the outside, you wouldn't expect what's on the inside! The food was excellent and our server, Melissa was knowledgable even though she has only been working there for a few weeks. Everyone o was with enjoyed their meals and appetizers! Can't wait to go back next time we're in hilton head/ bluffton.

It's not much to look at from the outside, just at the edge of Old Town. Inside, the dining room was pretty full on the week night we were here, with high top tables and regular height ones, plus a few chairs at the bar overlooking the open, busy kitchen, all decorations very simple and unremarkable. The menu had lots... More

We had lunch at MRG a few years ago and found it excellent. This time it was our first for dinner. We were greeted nicely by the hostess and taken to our table. A well trained and most pleasant waitress, Lindsey, took drink orders and later explained a long line of specials. She allowed considerable conversation and knew when to... More

I have the privilege of living on Hilton Head Island and have eating at MRG many times. I also have had the privilege of eating at some of the finest restaurants from coast to coast (many times), and MRG’s food quality, taste and variety will compete against any of the well-known and famous highbrow restaurants. There is always a good... More

One of our favorites. Prefer to sit a high top tables along the side. Staff always accommodating and menu consistently good.

From the time our party of four entered the door service was exceptional. I can say the same for the meal. The menu offers something for everyone. Looking forward to our next dinner here😊

Definitely in the top 3 when we want to go out for a special occasion. We are never disappointed. A diverse menu for whatever you might be craving, exceptional and friendly service and a lovely selection of wines.....though I often enjoy the perfect cocktail from the bar! The open kitchen allows you to be personal and one on one with... More

My wife took me here for my birthday last night. When we arrived they were setting up a table for 12 people and putting together several smaller tables. One of which was supposed to be ours. The Owner/Manager/Host was remarkably rude to both of us when we asked to be seated for our 7:45PM reservation...it was exactly 7:45. He told... More
