Our fried shrimp and oysters were excellent. Although it is not on the water, it has a nice laid back atmosphere, and the waitress was efficient and friendly. If you're looking for fresh seafood, definitely go here.

My wife and I were RVing in the area and stopped by to pick up some fresh seafood for Dinner. They have the biggest Mussels we have ever purchased. I can only fit three in my hand and I have big hands, size 15 ring size. The owner-family greet you with open arms, kind of like your part of the family. You want the good stuff? - This is the place to go.

You have to visit! A trip to South Carolina must include a stop at the Bluffton Oyster Co. on the May River. Watching the women shuck oysters by hand - seeing the oyster pickers come in with their catch - talking with the locals who have been there for generations - this is a must go to destination! This is the old South Carolina - a family business and a profession that has been engaged in by the same families for decades. Stop in to chat! A very interesting and friendly place and Bluffton is beautiful too!

Had a fabulous time! Our map quest took us first to their fishing dock but we had a wonderful visit with the owner as well as better directions. This is a wonderful local family seafood restaurant and we had a great time with our steamed oysters and all. So tasty and different from what we're used to, with a fun, puzzle like activity to find and enjoy all those oysters in the clumping way they grow.

Great service with friendly folks, good and plenty of food. Yes, i suppose it is a bit quiet if you're looking for a wild and crazy place, but we can't wait to come back!
