Palmetto Bluff Guide - Food & Wine

If food is the spice of life, then the cuisine of South Carolina is sure to keep things entertaining! There is a reason an entire food ethnicity is deemed “southern comfort.” The flavors of the south are meant to tantalize, inspire and make every meal feel like a little slice of home. This is why there is a wide selection of dining experiences available to the residents of Palmetto Bluff. To encompass the classic tastes of the south, several epicurean inspirations had to be provided.

Whether it’s meat and potatoes or vegan and gluten-free, there are surprising and mouth-watering options on every artfully designed menu! If you rise with the sun and crave a southern favorite, head over to Buffalo’s and get your buttermilk biscuits smothered in old-fashioned sausage, cream gravy. Or start the day with a kick, and launch your taste-buds into overdrive with their corned-beef hash. Buffalo’s may not be the largest menu in the area, but they cultivated their dishes with a keen sense of flavor and their location makes it a community favorite. Right across from the quaint chapel of Wilson Village, Buffalo’s sits facing the scenic May River. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, guests enjoy flavor and a view.

New Yorkers may have coined the term “brunch,” but the south made it legendary. Brunch was created for warm, languid afternoons where people can sit with a cup of iced-tea or chilled sangria and nibble delights while gossiping and talking about the weather. This is why Fore & Aft chose a location along the edge of the lagoon by the Inn pool which overlooks the avian sanctuary. What better way to enjoy a light snack with a friend than to chat while watching egrets and herons sway through the sky?

For the true gastronomic connoisseur, Palmetto Bluff offers you an intimate dance with southern flavors at Jessamine, named after South Carolina’s state flower. Here is a dining experience that strives to intertwine the bold spice profile of the south with inventive flair. Open all day, any meal can be a delight! Breakfast takes a southern spin on grits and adds in the local flavors of gulf shrimp and andouille sausage cream. These are not your momma’s grits! If dinner is the plan, then eat light during the day because you’ll want every mouthful. Jessamine is known for having the finest steaks around. Vegetarians don’t need to worry either when a Roasted Beet Salad is available! Dig into the crisp bite of arugula mixed with sweet and savory and topped with a lemon vinaigrette.

To keep life interesting, head over to RT’s Market where you can find all the ingredients for your perfect meal to be prepared in the confines of your kitchen. What better way to entertain guests or show your family you care, than to prepare them a meal thoughtfully crafted by you! RT’s has everything from local produce to gourmet products sourced from around the world. It may be the local general store, but they aim to please in product and service.

When thinking of food and the south, one can’t help but imagine dinettes set on stretching green lawns, seats around crackling fire-pits and wicker furniture on wrap around porches. River House Lounge aims to please as it resonates southern charm and delivers with rare liquors, craft beers and designer wines. Pair a top-shelf cocktail with oysters on the half shell, and your evening becomes divine.
