Stopped at this market, like we do every time we visit. The best fresh shrimp with beautiful views of the May River. The staff is always helpful, nice and insightful on local tourism, fishing and suggestions. Please make it a point to stop here!

We went specifically for fried seafood and there were so many options for getting what we had gone to get. The food was prepared after we ordered and was served hot and was excellent. The options included fried, blackened, and broiled. September will start oyster season locally according to the waitress and then oysters on the half-shell will be offered.... More

Food was not very good. Did not get the food we were ask for. Call and checked on the food - what we requested they did not have after telling us over the phone there would be no problem.

Go early - this place gets packed by 6:30-7 on most nights. it's easy to see why because the seafood is very very good and reasonable. Shrimp, Oysters, Fish, you name it. Good choices on the menu. Service is so-so so be patient.

After taking a "detour" to the Wharf Street address, which is the fish market for the Bluffton Oyster Co., we drove back into downtown for lunch. We hadn't been here in a couple of years, so we thought we would give it "a go" one more time. The restaurant is sparingly decorated in a nautical theme but does have a... More

Stopped by after trip to Bluffton Farmers Market. Food was good prices were great. Try the crab claw appetizer (if available.) Go early as this is a small place and waits get very long.

I was planning on a really good, fresh seafood meal, but was much surprised! The fish that I ordered was definitely NOT fresh--think frozen. The salad was small in portion size, and the lettuce wilted. The waiters were slow, and not attentive. The atmosphere was noisy and unpleasant. There are a number of good seafood restaurants in this area. This... More

Great food. The menu is not extensive but the food is really good. They do offer carryout and have a kids menu.

Thank Tom F
