We always try to buy our fresh seafood at Bluffton Oyster. Always friendly; always good selection; reasonably priced.

A must see for history buffs and seafood lovers. The Gullah women shuck by hand in the early morning.

I asked the concierge at the Westin for a casual seafood place where the locals eat. She recommended this place. A little hard to find. We put this restaurant in our smart phone locator and it sent us to a boat dock. Three guys fishing on the dock gave us better directions and said this place was a good choice.... More

Pan seared the scallops in butter and olive... More

Our first visit and we loved it. Seemed like a place the locals know and love. Food was awesome...atmosphere was ok and the live music was a bonus. Staff was very friendly and added to the experience. Short drive from outlets and worth it.

We haven't tried the restaraunt, but the market is a true must-see. Built on a mound of millions of oyster shells, the market easily has the best oysters and the freshest seafood in the Hilton Head area. MAKE THE TRIP and save easily half off the prices that you'll see on the Island. You want steamed- they'll do that. Cajun... More

If you are looking for fresh off the boat shrimp than this is the place for you! When blue crabs are in season they are always available live, boiled, or shelled. Their selection of locally caught fresh fish is second to none. They are a family run business that prides itself on taking care of its customers!

I love fresh seafood. What better place than from a seafood market. I went here and bought fresh oysters. The shrimp looked awesome too. I asked the girl at the counter on how to cook it to make it peel and eat and she offered to steam them for me. Made it easy for me. They were huge and amazing!!... More

Reviews mix the family's restaurant with the seafood market. These are two separate facilities with separate purposes. The market is a great place to get fresh seafood at 2/3 the price of Hilton Head markets-and several days fresher. Brought home (Atlanta) 4 lbs. of shrimp on Saturday and enjoyed them with friends on Sunday (with a few beers). A great... More
