We were staying at the INN AT PALMETTO BLUFF and ventured out for lunch one day. We'd read the reviews here. At first we were taken aback by the outside look of the restaurant. It's in a strip mall. But we were so glad we didn't judge a book by its cover for the meal was one of the best... More

I am so glad I found this place! Was traveling to Bluffton for work a few months back and randomly came across this spot - the owner is fantastic and actually serves you herself! She has great wine knowledge and knows how to put together an impeccable menu as well! Went back my second visit and she remembered what I... More

R&D has a fun selection of wines on tap. You can purchase a prepaid debit card and walk around and try different wines. It is a great way to try wines you might not know about prior to purchasing. I did not eat while I was in there. However, I did eat their food at a catered function. The food... More

What's the point of going out for wine with friends if I have to get my own wine? Why not just hang out at someone's house and save money? I just don't get the concept.

We first visited R & D in June when we were house hunting in the area. Since we returned and have relocated here, we've made it a point to keep R & D on our go to places. Others have explained the concept and it is so much fun to try wines you might not be able to afford by... More

First the food. The crostinis are excellent. The eggplant parm is as good as I have ever had. The flatbreads were just ok. Second the wine. There are machines and you choose a small or large quantity of different wines. It's fun - although much of the wine is ordinary. Third the staff. Friendly and prompt. But the off putting... More

My daughter, her fiancé, and future mother-in-law, stopped here while touring area venues in search of the perfect wedding location. We were delightfully surprised at what we found in this hidden jewel of a wine shop, tasting center, and creative small plates lunch menu! Definitely on the listed of places to revisit on my next trip to Hilton Head.
