Very good food and nice atmosphere. Nice bar I am sure we will be back once we move here. Appears to have nice outside when weather permits as well.

I guess the title of my review says it all. We live in Bluffton and are pretty good cooks ourselves. When we do go out to eat, Hogs Head is the place we choose. I've read the review below "Chef has meltdown" and can't believe things happened as described. The owner/chef John and his wife Alexis are great people and... More

When you walk up, you think this is an interesting place for a restaurant to be. My father knows the gentleman and his wife who own the place and after visiting one time, I was hooked. Their sticky ribs are to die for, their chicken and waffles are fantastic, and so is their beef tenderloin. I have yet to eat... More

I received my NY Strip Steak with a steak knife. The knife couldn't cut the steak. They brought me another knife. I was able to cut into it about 1/4 inch. I told the waiter that it was a tough steak and requested a new one. The Chef came out a few minutes later with the same steak and handed... More

Ate here 2 times during our stay in Bluffton. First time was an outstanding lunch of Goat cheese salad and a Hamburger. We loved it so much that we brought most of the family back here the following night. Everyone loved the meals. The portions were perfect and the food, especially my salmon, was awesome.

Loved Chris's knowledge of wines and eating dinner at the bar for "girls night out"! Upbeat diverse menu, great vibe and crowd. Good location right by HH bridge. Too cold to eat outside (terrace off to side) but bar was toasty and felt a little like home. Met some people next to us and they were regulars. I would go... More

This was our first trip to Hogs Head and to say the least, it was one of the best meals we've had in Bluffton in a very long time. We ordered the stuffed flounder and I must say it was out of this world. Perfectly cooked, served hot over a bed of rice. it was absolutely delicious. Portions was a... More

I stumbled upon Hogs Head while looking for a place for an early dinner close to my hotel. The restaurant was empty when I arrived (not surprising) and I sat at the bar. Within 10 min several others stared showing up. The service really was great. Attentive and friendly, but it just didn't match up with the food. The fish... More

Yes, our party was 19 people on a week night. The restaurant was ready for us! We sat outside on the patio. We did have to sit at a few separate tables, but it worked for our group. The bugs were biting, but hey it's South Carolina and that is expected. Any way let's get to the food! Absolutely delicious!... More
