I really can't say much more than this – the food and service was very good, prepared perfectly, great price-wise, and surprisingly quiet for such a small room. The Toomers are an institution in Bluffton, and they should be proud of this.

I had the fried oyster plate and my wife had the grilled shrimp and scallop plate. Both dinners were excellent with my oysters being the best I ever had. The oysters were tender, sweet, and lightly battered. If you like seafood, and oysters in particular, I highly recommend this place. The two kids who waited on us, Diana and Chelsea,... More

We have been here before and the food is excellent every time! Really good. Melt in your mouth good. The corvina, the oysters, the scallops, the fresh Shrimp! I just wish the service was as good. It's just not and it makes me sad because we love the food, even the hush puppies are fantastic but the service is not... More

I had oysters in many places including many well known restaurants in Paris where I live and in other capital cities in the world where I travel, but Bluffton Family Seafood house is the place where I had the best oysters ever, and I keep going back regularly there just for their oysters. They are just unbelievable.

I can't stand oysters. But my wife goes into euphoric trance after eating a few. By the time she ate her 1/2 bucket of those things, the smile on her face was frozen there for a long time!

My daughter found this place and wanted to try it while we were in town. It was a very casual atmosphere and the food was absolutely delicious! I wanted just a few steamed oysters and the waitress made that happen. They were delicious, steamed to perfection and fresh! We both ordered the seafood dinners with 3 choices and everything was...

We ate here with a fairly large group. At first I thought it wasn't going to be a good experience as the server didn't seem very friendly and it seemed like it was slow. There was something wrong with my wife's salad, to the point that she wouldn't eat it and sent it back. The staff discovered this as well... More

Quick service, price was not bad at all. I had the seafood salad poboy. Fries were weak point, hushpuppies were great. Place was pretty empty, but very clean.
