We are going to be in Savannah Thanksgiving week and I want to take a day trip to get some of the May River oysters.

Any recent reviews or other suggestions?

    We went over there for lunch today and the raw oysters and oyster po boy were both very good. Not really worth the two hour round trip from Savannah, unless you just want to go for a drive.

      Thanks kengk, wekick, 9lives and mikeh - as we'll be in Hilton Head, it doesn't look like Bluffton is too far away. We are so looking forward to some good oysters!

      I haven't tried the restaurant but have bought oysters and other seafood from Bluffton Oyster Co. and have always been very happy.

      I don't know if it's shrimp season but their shrimp are also very good.

      If you go to the restaurant you should check out the Calhoun St area and the market. There are some nice galleries and shops and the market is in a beautiful spot on the May River.

        We loved the town.

        We made a trip in that direction and I thought they were the best oysters we had on the trip. They are seasonal so had been frozen but should be in season then I think.

          Did you happen to try the other seafood offerings on the restaurant menu? I'll be passing by that general area tomorrow...
