Had some business to do in Bluffton and it was Valentine's Day. Knowing we wouldn't get home at a decent time looked on TripAdvisor for a good place for dinner. Emailed via TripAdvisor to check on the possibilities of a reservation on short notice and Sue got back to me in minutes. We both had the prime rib special. It... More

The food was very good as was the service and prices were reasonable. The Caesar salad was freshly made and it was probably the best we've had. We would go back again.

There were seven members of my family who dined at this lovely little restaurant. The Owners Chuck and Sue do a great job. Chuck is the chef in the kitchen and Sue is the server. With such a small staff, Sue was somewhat surprised to see our party of seven enter the restaurant without a reservation for dinner. But she... More

We wanted to try something local on our trip over to Ohio, and once again TA came through. Attached to a Victorian style home, the facility is charming, clean and well maintained. The decor vintage, with a great tin ceiling. Our server was friendly and attentive. The chicken salad was tasty and the beef /mushroom soup exceptional. The Reuben was... More

The chef know how to fix delicious food, a great variety and all at reasonable prices. The blackened blue-cheese burger plate with french onion soup is excellent. Sandwich and soup lunch is outstanding but only need to do a half of sandwich, huge! The pies or sweets are also pretty special especially in a small community with several bakery places.... More

We've been to Sassafras several times and always go away satisfied. The staff is very friendly and make you feel like you're welcome. There's usually a lunch special and we've never been disappointed (we're usually in Bluffton during the day so I can't speak to the dinner menu). They have good coffee and you can get wine, too. Just about... More

I have eaten prime rib at many establishments across the country. This was the best prime rib I have ever eaten. Hand cut by the chef/owner. Simply fantastic. Drive here. Get one yourself. It is that good!!
