I have been going to Claude & Uli's for over 10 years . They have moved during that time and I have acquired a wife with her own tastes so what has that meant. It has meant that we agreed that our meal yesterday was superb. Yes, they have raised their prices. I do not know how they had kept... More

I'm a finicky eater and really don't care for French food anywhere. So even though my family lives on Hilton Head, I had never been here before Thanksgiving day. However, they were offering traditional Thanksgiving fare, so my family and I went for dinner. It was great! Nicely decorated, cozy without feeling cramped. Amanda, our waitress, was very nice and...

Our great experience began when we called to check about gluten-free options, and were transferred to Claude himself. He assured usbthat he could prepare most anything gluten- free, and has a non-stick pan that will allow him to do so. Three of us ordered from the early bird menu and one from the early bird menu, two of whom are... More

You may have forgotten how people cooked in the old days. That is the way food is prepared here. I enjoyed the food, but my body had not experienced this type of cooking for many years, and it was a surprise to my taste buds. Melted butter was used in my seafood dish. It was delicious, but my system wasn't... More

Each and every time we have dined at Claude and Uli's restaurant the food has been superb! We have had both lunch and dinners. My luncheon club chose this restaurant for our monthly luncheons in the past.. As a couple, we look forward to a hearty Thanksgiving meal there as well.

Having spent time in Paris, I can honestly say that this lovely French bistro was marvelous. The steak and frites perfect bistro food. My ratatouille crepes fabulous. Our charming and knowledgeable server, Amanda, took excellent care of us. Claude & Uli's is just over the bridge as you exit Hilton Head Island on the right hand side. I can promise... More

Consistently one of the best restaurants in the Bluffton-Hilton Head area. Let's start with the menu. Very fresh ingredients, classic preparation, outstanding execution. One of our pet peeves is going to a restaurant and receiving a entree tepid in temperature. At Claude and Uli's they consistently get it RIGHT. Hot foods hot and cold foods cold, 100% of the time....

We had a very relaxed and enjoyable evening at Claude and Uli's on Tuesday. We decided to go with a seafood selection, although the Octoberfest menu appealed to my German Austrian taste buds. We started with the she crab soup which was wonderful. The grouper and mahi special were just great and done to perfection. Claude is an expert at... More
