Village Venues Community Dining for Every Taste

Canteen

The Canteen is the perfect spot in Moreland Village to pick up a cup of coffee or breakfast sandwich in the morning and a homemade panini, a wrap, a salad or snacks in the afternoon. Take it to go or enjoy an afternoon on the Canteen’s open-air porch with a glass of wine or a beer from a local brewery.

RT's Market

Named for the merchant Richard Thornton Wilson Sr., the father of the early 20th-century owner of Palmetto Bluff, RT’s Market is your neighborhood general store, and so much more. Here, you can pick up your morning newspaper and coffee, top off your gas tank and buy milk and bread for the next day’s breakfast or the ingredients for preparing a gourmet meal for a house full of guests. RT’s offers a creative selection of high-quality and unique products — an extensive wine selection, gourmet items, seafood and meats, and gifts — in an atmosphere of warmth and welcome. RT’s Market is open daily.

Buffalo's

The gathering place for all — and a community favorite — here at Palmetto Bluff. The corner café sitting across from our chapel in Wilson Village, Buffalo’s offers its patrons picturesque views of the May River as they enjoy a menu featuring everything from market-fresh salads, Italian sandwiches and pastas, pastries and handmade local gelato to wines by the glass or bottle and a variety of signature cocktails and local craft beers.

Enjoy ‘river to table’ dining at the Canoe Club with panoramic views of the May River on one side and the Palmetto Bluff inland waterway on the other. Our “coastal kitchen” menu celebrates local seafood, drawing ingredients and inspiration from the May River with staples including local shrimp, oysters and seafood prepared in a variety of ways.
