While it is in a strip mall, but the seafood is excellent and the wait staff is very good. The interior is very nice and feels like a seafood house.

Our family stopped in for lunch at Bluffton Family Seafood. It did not disappoint. We started off with an appetizer of Shrimp and Crab Dip that was Excellent. I had the Shrimp Pasta which was Fantastic. It was one of the best Alfredo type pasta's I've had. My wife got the grilled shrimp basket, which I tried a sample, and... More

The restaurant is unpretenious and simple. Much of the seafood and veggies are local and the seafood comes from a sister seafood market nearby on the May river. The Cobia was good, the fried shrimp were large,a nice portion and lightly breaded. The shrimp and grits was light on the shrimp [7] and heavy on the grits and gravy. The... More

This place is down home cookin. Everything is just like grandma would have cooked it. Seafood was wonderful and way more than I could eat. Parrish our waiter kept us smiling and informed throughout dinner. They also had a singer there and he was very good. This is not your place if you are looking for red carpet and stylish... More

Don't miss a visit to Hilton Head without heading toward scenic and quaint Bluffton for one of the best seafood meals around, at great prices. The seafood here is very fresh and the quality is outstanding. The menu, while very basic, covers all the necessary seafood bases. My husband loved the bisque and his bucket of steamed clams. I had... More

The restaurant has a 1/2 or a whole bucket of steamed local oysters.. The 1/2 bucket is $10, the whole bucket is $20. They give you SO many oysters for your money and they are the cleanest oysters I've ever had. Cooked perfectly. We come here just for the oysters every year! The cheese grits, fried shrimp, and stewed tomatoes... More

Best seafood meal ever. Fried shrimp was very lightly breaded and fried to perfection. Cheese grits were smooth and creamy. Best grits I've ever eaten. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. If you're looking for a white tablecloth experience, you'll have to keep looking. If you are looking for fresh seafood offered with excellent side dishes at reasonable prices, you need... More

This was the day we chose to visit Bluffton during our stay in HHI. Thursday is Farmers' Market Day and I looked forward to walking the streets to see the shops, stalls at the market, and some of the historic sights. Unfortunately, the rain slowed us down a bit but we did experience the flavour of the town. It was... More

We went to this restaurant years ago and were not very impressed however we have gone here recently and it is 100% better, service is good, and the shrimp & grits were some of the best!! Local fresh fish, good hush puppies and great music on the weekends with Tim Malchak!.

This place has some great seafood, my favorite being their low country boil. It is one of the best I have had. It is casual and very friendly, and they have always been ready to serve in a very friendly and fun way.
