Beautiful restaurant and views but food was disappointing. Husband had the early bird pork chop and I tried the Trigger fish after an appetizer of a dozen of Savannah Oysters. Food was Ok! Service from Petey was less than attentive.

We went just after 5pm on a Wednesday evening and the place was close to empty. It was the week after the Heritage golf tourney so that's probably why. We were able to eat outside and the view is great but the only negative was that the sun was directly on us (and essentially in my eyes) so it got... More

Excellent place to eat. The service was great on top of every need. Two outside patios and a large indoor area over looking bay. Food was excellent.

Luckily we went early enough; it was very crowded by the time we left. All three diners raved about their food. Portion size was perfect. One guest was very allergic to milk products; the server was helpful in making sure her meal catered to her needs. The view from out table was enjoyable.

While we were dining out on the deck we could see dolphins swimming We had a great waitress and took her suggestions on what to get. We all had something different and everything was great

What an amazing job the staff did on a very busy Easter Sunday. Staff extremely courteous and food was outstanding. We enjoyed their seafood bisque as an appy, roasted leg of lamb followed by cheesecake for dessert. Quality of food was excellent and presentation superb.

I met family members here and we had a great time. The food was above average. I had pasta/shrimp Alfredo. Our server was outstanding. It seats a great number of people, but you won't notice as there is plenty of room to move around. The server overheard me say I had never tried raw oysters before and brought me a... More

Went because we could get reservations and wanted to eat outside. The view, the service and the food was great. The restaurant was starting to fill up when we left at 5:45. Eating early if you can is a must in Hilton Head unless you want to wait.

I would like to join the others complimenting this long established gorgeous waterview restaurant, but I can't, due to the poor quality of our meal. Salad was delivered without dressing, and when dressing did arrive was a balsamic of Kraft origin tasting not far off from Subway offering; mussels were dried out, with 4 unopened in a small serving to...
