We went to WiseGuys to celebrate our Anniversary and had the best experience ever. The food was great and the service exceptional. We had the Braised Boneless Beef Short Rib. It was to die for. Would highly recommend.

As usual this was one of our go too places! Friendly staff and lots to choose from. From small plates, with the shrimp and calamari being wonderful, to the early dinner for $18.00 with loads of choices. Highly recommend

The amazing ambience is second-to-none on Hilton Head Island. WiseGuys features an expansive bar, a cosmopolitan lounge, a semi-private dining room with an award-winning wine list of over 200 bottles. We also have a Wine Keeper system, which ensures every glass is as good as the first.
