Truffles Hilton Head

Reacently I dined at Truffles in Sea Pines at Hilton Head after many years of enjoying this restaurant. I now beleive this restaurantt has been reducedd to just another chain restaurant.
I had the ham and brie sandwich which was terrable. The Croissant appeared to be a frozen varity. The ham could have come from the deli at the loccal Food Lion, and the brie consiste of two small slices. All of theis was served cold. The so called french fries were a frozen potato product with a coating to make them seem crisp even after an hour on the plate.
Since they associate with Ruby Tuesday they seem to have reduced their food to the chain level. Yuck!

  1. Funny, I was there last Monday. I had the French Onion soup, and the cajun chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries.The soup was really good, it looked to be made with chicken broth. The croutons still crispy in parts (something I like) and the cheese was in just the right quantity. Aside from tasting on the salty side, the sandwich was delicious. The fries were most likely previously frozen, and that was a disappointment. My mother has eaten there a few times, and she had commented on the overuse of salt with the grilled shrimp skewers, but that her sides had been very good. This time, she had the mango chicken sandwich and loved it. Interesting to know that they are associated with Ruby Tuesdays. Overall, I thought they did a decent job both with food and service, but I'll avoid in the future b/c I don't enjoy salt like I have in years past.
