Red has a limited menu, but we have never been disappointed. Large selections of wines served by the taste, or by the glass.

Enjoyed a gorgeous rack of lamb dinner last night. My "date" ordered the short ribs which were also fabulous. The presentation was wonderfully tempting and the veggies were treated as stars as well as the meats. Doesn't get much better than this. OH, the wines...More

Mixed review: A couple of years ago, this place was novel (had the wine bottle tap machine so you could try a wide variety of wines by the glass.) Had cheese/meat boards and simple evening meals. Nice place to be casual and cosmopolitan in Bluffton....More

The concept of wine drinking is unique at this place;a $20 card to the wine fountain and you fill your glass 1, 3 or 6 oz with your own selection; wine by glass or wine by bottle that you pick up from the wall. The...More

The people Red attracted, they were the inspiration. The patrons of a wine boutique turned out to be people who were open to the finer experiences. What a pleasure to fulfill their interests in fine food, good company and quality service. In rising to those requirements we found Red had become a restaurant, unique in its focus on the pleasure of an evening. Wine was the starting point. Beyond the snobbery that once surrounded wine in America, Red let’s you explore, enjoy and fulfill your interest, your own way, using a serving instrument that’s unique to our region. Please consider this your own invitation to join us for an evening soon.
