If you're looking for great ambience this isn't it :). It seemed to fit the name well; a family place deep rooted in the area. We had shrimp and crab cakes. Both were good and more substantial than we'd had at another SC restaurant earlier in the week. The service was excellent. We would go again if in the area.

My wife and I found this gem in Bluffton, SC just outside of Hilton Head. Very nice courteous staff. It's a family run restaurant and the portions are quite large. My wife had the fried flounder and I had a two item combo platter (scallops and cod). They were simply marvelous. We hadn't had much of a lunch as we... More

We stopped for lunch after touring some new homes in the area. The service was very prompt. They had the normal lowcountry variety of seafood. What I enjoyed was that you could pick the size of your meal (one, two, or three kinds of shellfish or fish) and exactly how you wanted each prepared (steamed, broiled, fried, etc.) I have... More

We dined here on our Hilton Head vacation and not only was the food fabulous, our server, Ryan, was fantastic. She was great with our children and very accommodating to those in our party with special dietary considerations. The peel and eat shrimp was fantastic!!! Worth the visit!!!

The family (four adults, two small children) went to dinner at this restaurant. It is a great place for families, very casual, nice menu, quite reasonable. We had read a previous review about a waitress who was more interested in combing her hair than waiting on table. Bad luck, she was our waitress! She took our orders, wrote them down... More

Let's be sure that we are NOT talking about a seafood market at 63 Wharf Street that is ranked #9. There is no restaurant at that location! Bluffton Oyster Co. has a restaurant at 27 Dr. Mellinchamp Drive. That's where we ate. We walked in for a late lunch and were greeted by Parris, who entertained us while he served... More

What a great, local place. Excellent seafood in a cheap and cheerful restaurant--I called it a seafood diner! We celebrated my dad's birthday, got a ton of different food (including clams, hush puppies, fried and broiled seafood, and she-crab soup). Everything was EXCELLENT. Excellent service and a family-friendly atmosphere. We just loved it. Can't wait to go back!

The food was slow coming but good once it made it. Server was more concerned about flipping her hair and standing around talking to the other servers. I am not sure if I will return and I live here. Just not a destination I'd come back to.

If you like a local seafood place, this is one not to be missed. They have the best hush puppies and fried shrimp EVER!
