I was looking for an authentic Caribbean restaurant and I discovered this gem. I went with my family. We were greeted with warmness and kindness. The COVID precautions were in effect. We really appreciated that. Especially since I was with my 84 year old mother....I ordered the Caribbean fried chicken rice and peas and Caribbean coleslaw. My beverage of choice was the Jamaican fruit punch. It reminded me of being in Negril eating on the beach. I honestly could have easily eaten the sauce they used for the Caribbean chicken without the chicken. Okay let’s not forget the plantains and the Coco bread! Scrumptious! This is going to be my new go to place when I am craving Caribbean food!More

We found this wonderful place looking for some good food in Bluffton SC! We saw the menu online. We arrived and wow the place has a very positive vibe. You can tell a place has great food by the amount of customers picking up orders....We met Kesha and asked some questions about the menu. Kesha is awesome with great customer service! We got a chance to say hello to the chef too. We ordered 2 different tofu dishes and some sides! This place has something on the menu for everyone! We got home and wow the portions are large! The food was very flavorful and filling. We can’t wait to come checkout the outdoor seating areas after all the restaurants fully open. We will definitely be back to pick up some more delicious authentic Caribbean food from Red Stripes again soon! Excellent place with great menus! Great place for anyone looking for some healthy home cooked deliciousness! Thank you to Kesha & Chef for making our day a great one!More

The closet Jamaican food I’ve tasted since my trip to Jamaica in March 2020!!! I enjoyed the service and the chef was very comical and knowledgeable of the types of seasonings that made my taste buds go hmm.....

At the last minute our venue cancelled on us. We had booked for 30 people to celebrate my parents 25th anniversary. Sadly to say they doubled booked the venue. My husband called around other places frantic to find a spot. To our delights Kesha and...Chef Ezron were able to work with us to pull it off. They catered the food to our delight. Not so spicy, but all well flavored . I would suggest them for any occasion, small intimate or large. They were very accommodating.More

We went with friends who have been here a few times. They warned us that everything is made to order and to be patient. An hour before our entrees. Our friends swore by the fried chicken which we all ordered. Just be me as I...found the chicken dry, the green beans cool in a bowl of water and the plantains in short supply. One friend got the last side of Mac and cheese, 8pm. It must be me, but I won't be back.More

The only thing missing was the sand and ocean right next to this gem of a restaurant.

If you are looking for a Caribbean Experience in the area, Red Stripes is worth dining at. This was my first time in the area so I wasn't for sure where to go. I love Caribbean food and found them on the internet and decided...to give it a shot. The atmosphere had a cool vibe, the food was delicious, the service was fast and every staff person that I talked to was kind and hospitable. Also the portions were a nice size. I had enough food for two people. I would recommend anyone to check it out for the experience.More
