Busy summer evening but went to bar and great service! Seated in reasonable time and waiter very accommodating. Food awesome! Blackened shrimp recommended and did not disappoint! Fresh and cooked to perfection. Best place in Bluffton!

Mava provided the absolute best service possible! My 3 sisters came into town and we all had crab legs on our mind. The service was excellent as were the crab legs. We will return and hope Mava will be our waitress.
