Not at all what I expected with Pub in it's name. However, it turned out to be a very nice dining experience.

The competition for culinary excellence is intense on Hilton Head Island. The Old Fort Pub still ranks at the top. It has been many years since we went to this restaurant but we will return soon. Everyone is so welcoming as soon as you arrive. Matching your napkin color if you have black pants is unique (no white lint). Our... More

Old Fort Pub is one of the best all-round restaurants on Hilton Head Island. The food, service, ambience, and LOCATION are all excellent and they are offering a winter special called 3 for $33--any entree plus 2 other courses on the entire menu any time of the night. Also have a good Early Dining menu but the 3 for $33... More

Probably my twentieth visit to this fine restaurant.... once a year for twenty years. (I live in Pennsylvania!). The food is always supurb! The service exemplary! I had the tuna and it was prepared just the way I like it.... rare! I think the Ole Fort Pub is one of the top two or three restaurants on the island. Y'all... More

Visiting Hilton Head for a week & treated ourselves to a fantastic dinner at The Old Fort Pub. Our waitress, Jennifer, did a great job advising about the various menu items. Our entrees ranged from shrimp to pork chops to trout. All were delicious. A must visit, but be sure to make reservations.

We've lived in the area for 3 years and waited for a special occasion to come eat here.We were disappointed in our meal and our service. The view is quite great though. We chose to eat in the bar area. The bartender had to service the seats at the bar, 5 tables in the bar area and make all the... More

We were early and lucky enough to get a window seat and that guaranteed us one of the nicer sunsets on the island. We took advantage of the "Sunset Dining Menu" (in other restaurants called early bird). Two of us had the medallion of Beef Tenderloin, small but perfect. The grilled salmon and the shellfish cake were also outstanding. The... More

We went to the Old Fort Pub after receiving a most excellent recommendation from a friend of mine. Although we live in Savannah, GA, at 55 miles out and over an hour we though tit a worthwhile trip. I made a reservation by calling and telling the hostess it was my mother-in-laws 84th Birthday. As such, requested window seating and... More

We went to the Old Fort Pub to celebrate my wife's birthday. We had not dined there for about 7 years and it was as delightful as we remembered. My wife, who is a sommelier of salmon, if there is such a role, said her dinner was the best ever. I had a fantastic dish made from local shrimp. Our... More
