Well, for a quick lunch, it was a real one....the table was so dirty, maybe we went too late, so when we asked to clean it, well, she brought some paper and feel free to do it yourself. Then, the food.....really just ok. We should try again, so many nice reviews, but probably earlier.

I hate to let this secret out! When visiting Beaufort or Hilton Head, head over to Cahills market and chicken kitchen for breakfast. Now if you are looking for Chain restaurant fair well.... go on past because you won't find it here. here you will find the best chicken and waffles in the SE especially if you get those served...

The best home cooked food away from home.... maybe even better! We've been here a few times and try to make it a "must" when we have visitors.

If you want good, substantial country cooking, this is the place to go in Bluffton. Their menu is extensive, and their are some selections that hint at North of the Mason Dixon Line. But if you like rice and chicken, grits, beans with a little fatback in them, this is your place.

Cahill's is a great place that cooks with a lot of the veggies they grow themselves. Hard to get more farm to table than that. Menu always has a good variety of meals to sandwiches and always great specials for what's fresh at the time. Staff is always great. After your meal you can shop the market and bring some... More

We ate there twice while visiting Bluffton, both times for breakfast, and both times we were blown away. It's a very country Homestyle casual dining great place to eat. Inside you think you're back in the 1950s lots of kitschy articles hanging on the walls. Old fashioned Coke machine, and a wood-burning stove which was a nice touch on a... More

At this point, we have eaten at Cahill's several times. We've had breakfast lunch as well as dinner there. Atmosphere is laid back, a jeans or shorts kind of place. No need for dressing up here. The food is hard to beat. From farm to table. I'm not particularly a fried chicken lover, but my husband claims it's the best... More

Great fried chicken. Black bean avocado salad is the best side dish along with Mac and cheese. They handled our group of 18 with ease.

This is a great local restaurant with limited hours. Make sure you check before you drive out there.
