My dining experience at Red Fish was very pleasant... This particular night there were a few large parties so the level of noise was probably louder than one would expect but tolerable. My server was very knowledgeable of the menu and wine selections... The best part of my meal was the shrimp spring rolls. I could have had those all... More

Booked a late dinner and had no problem being seated. They have an extensive wine selection and anyone can make a easy choice. Wine was very good and seafood delicious but my wife had chicken and was a little dry. The atmosphere was serene and pleasant. A fantastic place for family, couples or for business. Outdoor seating is available.

My wife and I hadn't been to Red Fish in over 20 years. We returned last night and it was much larger than we remembered and equally as good. Servers make the experience, and Michael was outstanding. He took time to chat without making us feel he had other tables to attend to. The Barrel Fish he recommended was incredible... More

First of all we like the Bluffton location a little more. Ambiance and decor. This is a great seafood Restaurant. Try whatever the catch of the day is. Always good. You can't get a bad meal here.

Our dinner at Red Fish was outstanding and very fresh. The seared Scottish Salmon was by far our favourite, however the seared scallops receive an honourable mention. The only disappointment was the lack of freshly shucked oysters which would have made a great starter. The wine list was good, albeit a little pricey. Ambiance is very nice, with live music... More

Lovely ambiance. Fabulous fresh-caught options prepared at fine dining levels found in any major metropolitan area. Wine offers vast. Service was outstanding. Special thanks to Michael Walker, our waiter, who made excellent recommendations on both the food and wine! Memorable evening.

Arrived in Hilton Head after spending a week in Charleston and being spoiled by some of the great restaurants up there. Red Fish could hold it's own with the best in Charleston. We were greeted cordially and seated promptly. Our server was a delight, courteous, helpful, and efficient. The wine selection is excellent. Our dinners were beautifully executed and delicious....

We just returned from vacation there and our dinner at Red Fish was our favorite of the week. A big variety of dishes with unique combinations such as lobster mac and cheese, and long wine list. The foie gras was delicious, you don't often find it especially on a seafood menu. The fish was prepared perfectly, the special salad was... More

Have you ever driven past a restaurant, but never stop and try it? We have lived on the island since 2010, and have driven past the Red Fish many times, it's real close to the Post Office. However, this past Saturday, we decided to check it out. We were very pleasantly surprised! As soon as you walked in, you are... More
