Nectar Farm Kitchen expanding to Bluffton

The SERG Restaurant Group has its sights set on Old Town Bluffton, with a new Nectar Farm Kitchen location opening where the previous Fat Patties once resided at 207 Bluffton Road. Nectar Bluffton started renovations at the site in July and hopes to open in early September. Like its island counterpart, Nectar Farm Kitchen Bluffton will serve breakfast, lunch and supper and will continue to source a majority of its meats and produce from 28 local farms, which come together to create what Nectar calls a “twist on traditional Southern cuisine.”
