We had an excellent meal at what felt like a "Local's place" - great staff, live music (Tim Malchak) and food that reminds me of some of our hide-outs in New England. We started off with a half-bucket of steamed oysters - a first for my boys. They were incredibly fresh (the oysters, not the kids) and a fun experience... More

My fiancée and I always like to eat seafood at a local place when on vacation and this was somewhat out of the way for Hilton Head. So this gave us an opportunity to give it a try. I ordered a dozen Steamed Oysters and since Hushpuppies didn't come with the Low Country Boil, ordered these as an appetizer. The... More

Grilled shrimp & gumbo were good. Place is casual, not fancy & seemed full of locals. Employees were super kind but service is slow.

My husband and I felt like seafood so this is close and we had been before. In the past when we ate here we felt the food just ok and were not impressed with the oysters at all and being supposed to be "oyster people" we thought they would be really good. Last night when we went we both ordered... More

The only true local seafood place in Bluffton. Most of the seafood comes right out of the local waters. It's nothing too fancy, and it doesn't need to be. My regular favorites are steamed or fried shrimp, gumbo or an oyster poboy. Basic bar with mainly domestic beers and grocery store-type wines...and that's just as it should be. If you're... More
