Been here once before just the husband and I one night which was very busy so decided to sit at the bar; it took a long time for service then received cold food. We loved the She crab soup and wanted to try it again figuring it was just a busy night. Came back with the family. Had the she... More

Small family owned seafood restaurant serving lunch and dinner. Service is usually prompt, atmosphere very casual, no outdoor seating available.

Same owners as the Bluffton Oyster market on Wharf Street. Great, crisp salad. Fried shrimp were just as wonderful, but the oysters, while very fresh, were not crisp. Friendly staff.

Lunch with Oysters on the half shell, steamed oysters and a mixed seafood fried appetizer. All good, very fresh and tasty. Only disappointment was inattentive service

Food and service were ok. Nothing special. Shrimp were small and over cooked. Red skin potatoes were instant which I had never heard of. Overall I was unimpressed.

visited three years in a row. This time more patrons, more wait staff and slower service. Fried sampler same good batter but salty. Gumbo soup needed reheat.

Seafood is excellent but small portions. Side dishes are average at best. Dinners are a bit pricey. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Few minor changes and they have one of the best restaurants around :)

I've been to Bluffton Family Seafood House twice now. It's not the fanciest place and maybe isn't the most stylish inside. BUT, the food and service are solid. Super fresh shrimp and oysters (in season of course) and the sides are to die for. The cheese grits and hush puppies are so good. We've enjoyed the samplings from the Oyster... More

The family that runs this restaurant also runs the last Oyster House in the Carolinas. The seafood is ultra-fresh and tastes better than any other place around. We shared a shrimp basket and an oyster basket; we were both stuffed and very satisfied. If you are looking for a fancy restaurant with beautiful views and white table cloths, drive by... More

Like most places around old town Bluffton, it can be hard to find a parking spot for the Bluffton Family Seafood House. I hope that you do because once you're there you're in for a treat! I got the fried shrimp PO' boy and my fiancé had a combo. The po' boy was great, stuffed and on a delicious bun... More
