Nothing out of the ordinary, food was ok, expensive. A portion of Mussels was disappointing, they were tiny in large shells, bearing in mind we were on the coast, the fish options should be their best dishes.

I liked it so much I came back three nights in a row. Great menus which change seasonally, personable servers (I just ate at the bar), good food and good cocktails. What's not to like? It is convenient--right in the middle of the market between Kiawah and Seabrook and is a great option if you don't want to eat at... More

My wife and I dined here at Hege's on the island. The place was packed but our waiter Scott made us feel like we were his only customers. His service was excellent. We had the prix fixe which was a great deal at $40. The soups were generous and delicious and the swordfish was perfect. Dessert was amazining as well.... More

Went for breakfast on their first Friday open for the season, and it was terrific. Service was a bit slow to start, but the meal was worth the wait. Eggs to perfection; potatoes were crispy, and OJ was fresh squeezed. Going back again for breakfast on morning of departure.

I enjoyed the rich, flavorful She Crab Soup, asparagus, spinach, lobster tail, and a rich chocolate dessert which I was too full to finish! My husband enjoyed the lamb and key lime pie. We both thought the shrimp ravioli in lobster bisque was delicious and a pleasant surprise.

I love the caesar salad at Hege's and everything else was delicious too. The lobster dinner is so generous, with a tail, three shrimp, lots of beurre blanc sauce over a plate full of mashed potatoes. My Slavic husband was impressed with their winter special of stuffed cabbage. Others at the table had the calves liver and the Asian tenderloin... More

We always enjoy a visit to Heges. Consistently good food and great service. Waitstaff are very knowledgeable on the menu and extensive wine list. Food compares to the best French restaurants, atmosphere is smart casual "Island style". Highly recommend for a special evening out.

The rudest treatment I have received in 10 years of freelance travel writing. Pulled up for Sunday Brunch on a gorgeous day. Asked for an outside table. TJ went into a 5 minute rant about how there was no outside seating because they only had 2 servers for a nearly empty restaurant. I explained that I was writing a piece... More

The difficulty with reviewing this or any of the island restaurants is they are being held to a high level as downtown Charleston has some of the best food in the country. If you keep that in mind you will enjoy this place and it is one of the best on Seabrook/Kiawah for sure. Heges is good and the wait... More

This place is great, I had the filet and the molten cake for dessert. The waiters Scott and Nick are the best! Will definitely return!
