We stopped here for lunch, on a recommendation from a friend while we were attending a farmer's market nearby. I had the best (and different than the usual) chicken pot pie. The place was charming, the three of us each had something different and all loved what we had. They have a bakery on the premises with wonderful looking breads.... More

While the food here was great, the restaurant was very crowded. We enjoyed their fish tacos and fried green tomatoes, and their desserts looked amazing although we did not indulge. When we received our bill, we were a bit surprised at how high it was. We had ordered the specials that were offered that day without knowing the price, and... More

Outstanding setting in old town Bluffton. Food is outstanding. When weather is pleasant sitting on the front porch is great.

This is a must-do when in the area as the food and service are amazing! This is an old historic home that was converted to a restaurant and the charm is quintessential old town Bluffton. I have had the pleasure of eating here several times and I have never had a bad experience. We had the corned beef hash and... More

Stopped here on our way over to Daufuskie prior to using the Mayweather Ferry Service which is at the dock at the bottom of this street. Very convenient. Bought some cookies to take along ,and they were delicious. Liked it so much, stopped on our way back. Just as good the second time. Loved the crab salad!

Nice small sized quaint popular restaurant. ,, Make reservations for after 6pm eating. We ended up eating on the porch which was a nice change to the noise coming from the inside restaurateurs as it is small inside. Started with a pitcher of White Sangria which was a wonderful compliment to the entire meal. The food is amazing here! Almond... More

Fantastic breakfast in Bluffton. Great crabmeat, artichoke, brie omelette. Best corn beef hash ever. Everything hot and fresh. Service a little confused; wasn't sure how to handle "side order" of the hash. Finally brought a cup filled with hash, topped with poached egg. Then brought a second one to make up for delay.

I read lots of reviews regarding The Cottage, some great, some not so good, but I still had high expectations, Its in a very pretty location and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. It is a house that has been converted into a restaurant, bursting with tables and chairs inside and out, l guess very quaint. I ordered the... More

We live in Bluffton but had never been to the cottage for dinner. We had a coupon so went there last Friday. Excellent Shrimp Etouffe (me) and Pistachio encrusted red snapper (wife). The waitress sold us on the honey-hive appetizer which was okay but we could have and should have skipped it, it was way too much food in total.... More
