The servers just did not care that we were there and needed to be waited on, won't go back here. We walked in and got seated and others came in after us, we waited on before we were even asked if we wanted water , so we left..

We are big fans of low country seafood. This is a great place to find it on the menu. The low country boil had local shrimp and fresh corn. The oysters are clusters and are a challenge to open but were great.

Located in Old Town Bluffton along the May River, this is the place to go for your shrimp and crab meat and several options for fresh fish. Where else can you get local shrimp that just came off the shrimp boats? $15/lb for extra large, but you will have to shell and clean them. I was advised this morning that... More

An outdoor low country boil at the beach was exquisite. Pulled pork, sausage and shrimp plus a mustard sauce and great service made for a great party. Held the gathering at the pavilion at Tower Beach in Sea Pines Plantation. Tina and her crew were very efficient and the meal was superb. Will definitely use this service again.

If you want that old time feeling of oyster bars by the dock - go stop in here. A super menu served with everything fresh and perfectly cooked. Get sloppy, lick your finger and smack your teeth. A great meal with friends and family.

Here is a classic example of "You get what you pay for". I stood in line at Krogers sea food department and read all the tags from China with red die added. Why would you do that when you can get fresh local caught sea food right here in Bluffton and support your local community. We are there at least... More

Went over to the Bluffton Oyster Company first to get our raw shrimp for dinner, then stopped here for brunch. Brian made us feel right at home and made us awesome Bloody Marys. We ordered oysters on the half shell, fried oysters, She Crab soup and the gumbo. All were superb. Fantastic morning spent with great food and good people.... More

We enjoyed the seafood menu and the waiters were helpful and gracious. I had the steamers (not used to garlic added) since I'm from RI the land of the pisser clams! Overall good food though.
