I guess I expected a little better food since it was rather pricey. I had a salad that was honestly on the same level as a chain restaurant. I will say the service as top notch and of course, the view is beautiful. Maybe we will try again when in the area, but I would look to see if the... More

This is a must stop when in Hilton Head. Six of us had drinks outside and watched the sunset. Entertaining music and nice bartender. Got a little buggy so ate inside. Food was good (We all had seafood) and service was fine. A little pricey. Interior nothing fancy.

We love this gem in Harbortown. A great spot to bike to for lunch or dinner and drinks. Always a live musician around, great food at a decent price. We stop here every visit to HHI.

We went with my brother and his wife on their recommendation. They had a "great dinner" in the past few weeks there. Another couple went with us as well. Staff seemed rushed, person who served our food had bad attitude, food just was not good.

Disappointing food, no flavor. Slow service. Not thoughtful staff. Have a side deck where a musician plays, but try to get a table! Only nice thing was the sunset overlooking the water on the back deck. And you need to pay $6 to get into Sea Pines community...not worth it.

Nothing special. The meatballs were tasteless as was the pizza. Missed the boat on the crust. The crab cakes were nothing to write home about. The best part of the meal was the Fried Oysters and Fried Calamari appetizers

What a nice surprise to find a nice restaurant with gluten-free bread so a sandwich could be a sandwich! Sadly no dedicated fryer for GF fries. We were there for lunch. Three of us had an inside table (it was blasted hot outside) next to the windows for a lovely view. Our waitress was friendly, funny, efficient, and also gluten-free!... More

High prices for not so great food and drinks-pick another place this on is over-priced and the wait-staff is slow
