Very hard to find and when you did you couldn't tell if it was open or not. Bad strip mall location with a convoluted way of getting to it. I'm sure location did it in as these folks are mainstays of the Thursday Bluffton Farmer's Market. They told me a month ago they were looking for a new location but... More

My husband, son and I went to the Kinfolk Gullah Grub Restaurant for a late lunch/early dinner - the food was good and even my son (who can be picky) enjoyed it. I ordered the Low Country Boil and there was so much of it, I had to take it home. They brought a tasty sample of the shrimp and... More

We wanted to try some local food and this place was quite hard to find - it is set back in a strip mall behind another strip mall. We were the only people in the restaurant at 6:30 pm which was a little concerning for me (where was everyone) but we decided to brave it. Good choice. The 2 waitresses... More

We read the reviews and decided to give it a try. Arrived a little after 11am on Saturday (opened at 10). No other patrons on arrival. Should have been the red flag. The server was half asleep (said she was up all night, did not know she had to work). Ok, so we ordered the Gullah Platter as it had... More

This restaurant was definitely worth the drive off the beaten travel path of I-95. Why fight overcrowded chain restaurants when you can take a drive to a hidden strip mall location to food that rivals Mama's? Delicious homemade meatloaf with tasty gravy, I wanted to lick the plate. My husband had blackened tilapia with red rice and greens. Low country... More

Excellent Lowcountry cooking! The owner took very good care of us and let us sample dishes before ordering. Shrimp & grits like nobody else makes. Grits were fried, not sloppy. Cornbread comes in its own miniature iron frying pan, saturated with butter. Greens were great, not bitter. Off the beaten path in Bluffton, but well worth finding. Lots of choices... More

We always like to try local foods when we travel so we ask local people for suggestions. This is a terrific place for Gullah food! When we walked in the door, we were met with a friendly smile and a big hello. I am only sorry we did not ask her name. She explained the foods to us and even... More

My family and I continue to patronize this restaurant because when we walk in the door, we feel like family (and that means an awful lot)! There are other places that we don't use anymore because the wait staff/employees are surly or mean, but that is just not the case here! The love between the members of this family is... More
