We visit the island twice a year and always dine at Wise Guys at least once each visit. The food, ambience, and sevice are always great--so great that reservations are almost a necessity year round. We had both seafood and beef last night and our server, Danny, was terrific. Wise guys has a unique Early Dining offer of 25% off... More

Go early. Make reservations. No reservations on a weekend - tough but they can accommodate if you go really early. I went for the surf and turf special of the day. Love the shrimp, the turf was so tender and delicious, I'm salivating just thinking about it. My wife was all surf with the Flash Fried Shrimp and Calamari with... More

I'm writing this review as I'm sitting in the restaurant. We arrived for our reservation at 7 pm. It is 8:20 now and we are still waiting for our meal. We were waited on right away, drinks were served on time and were good. Bread came right away--then a ridiculously long wait and we were final served a salad. Since... More

Just happened on WiseGuys and what a wonderful find. Huge menu offering just about anything you could want in any price range. The atmosphere was romantic and although I probably would not take small children, there were several families there and all was well. It's an establishment that seems to do a good business, but they allow you to take... More

The reviews are spot on. The food did not not disappoint! Our server Cecila was excellent. We had the lightly fried shrimp and calamari. It was so tender and delicate. Also had chips and blue cheese dip and Prime Rib. YUM

Well, had dinner once again at WiseGuys in Hilton Head and it's a can't miss location on the island. A little pricey, but well worth it and a great meal. They offer fish, steaks, appetizers, salads and a HUGE wine selection. Additionally, they offer a 25% off, between 5PM and 5:45PM off your entire meal including liquor and it's a... More

It's a "happening" place. Crowded & noisy. Very good variety of menu selections. Nice wine list. Good service. Everyone in our party was satisfied with their meals, which we felt were good but not wow.

Great service and good food. A little pricey for what was served to you. We did order tapas, but the tapa was almost $10 for 2 bites!

I had forgotten what a fun place this is! Sat in the bar at a high top with my wife and shared a couple of small plates. Great selection of small plates and full entrees. Our server was Inga and she was prompt and friendly. We will be back soon!
