I loved my waitress, She didn't tell us her name. The scenery was cool. Food was great. I didnt know they had shrimp!! And it was actually pretty great. This place needs more recognition. The only thing i didnt like is the staff's uniforms. So weird.

This is by far the best BBQ on the island. Great place we just happened upon but boy glad we did. The beef brisket is awesome.

Your visit to Jim & Nick's will start with their lovely hostess, Amy. After that a visit to their bar area for an adult beverage from Kait or Stephanie. Next find a table, and if you are lucky Renee will be your server. The food will be well prepared and in the southern tradition of great BBQ, be it pork,... More

Excellent pulled pork - and their cheese rolls are simply amazing (I couldn't eat just one!). If you're looking for some good Southern bbq, this is the place!!

I had assumed this restaurant was dog-friendly for the outside eating area. We stopped there after an afternoon at the beach with our well-behaved dogs and learned that we could not eat there with the dogs, even tho it was a lovely evening for eating outside. We did take-out instead, and were very disappointed. The cheese biscuits were rubbery, the... More

Just go. The sauce is just another reason. The catering is fantastic too. Slaw, hush puppies, Mac and cheese, and real pork, not all shredded. The habanero BBQ sauce is a bit warm but oh so good.

We'd just arrived in Bluffton, and were ready for some barbecue. We prefer more rundown barbecue joints. This one was quite snazzy. The barbecue was too tampered with for our tastes. It seemed to have pepper added versus mainly having the smokey flavor. The sauces and sides were good. We sat outside. The music was Motown and just right for... More

I went there with my daughter and her family this past Tuesday night because it was my daughters favorite restaurant when she use to live here. What a nightmare!!! We were seated in the bar area in a back booth with 3 small children. There were drunks at the bar right next to us hollering and being loud. We had... More

Although a crowd can form for lunch, we got there just before noon and the place is larger than it looks from outside. We had great service and great food. All the staff are so friendly. Service is quick, unusual for the area. They have the best onion rings and great southern sides. The fried cat fish is spectacular as... More

My husband and I ate here for the first time over the weekend. It was by far one of the best places we have been to in Bluffton. Everything from the food, to the service and atmosphere was top notch. This will definitely be a regular place for us now!
