    We were staying at the resort and didn't feel like going far for dinner our first night. We had the fish special and also the "Land and Sea". Wow, what a great decision!! This was one of the best steaks I've ever had! Cooked perfect...and the flavor!!! We made that our dinner the last night too! And yes, it was just as good! And don't let me forget to mention the great staff! From the hostess to all of the servers, you will be treated like royalty! We will be going back without question :-)

    We recently visited HH Prime the other evening. We chose this place as we were staying at the Omni resort and did not want to venture off the property as we had just arrived to our destination. We were seated quickly and waited on immediately. Our waitress was super friendly and knowledgeable. The courses were perfectly timed for us, but I must admit that we had an early reservation so HH was not very busy at that time. The steak was to die for! It was cooked as desired and was so tender and flavorful. The accompaniment of Boursin mashed potatoes and asparagus were tasty as well. Would definitely dine here again when we return in theP future.

    This was my second visit in two years. Definitely not your typical hotel restaurant. In fact, this time I was staying at a different hotel and went to hhprime because of my previous great experience. Food, service and atmosphere are all terrific. My husband and I had a lovely romantic meal.

    From the reviews I was expecting an outstanding steakhouse experience, but this feel short. I had a very difficult time understand our waitress throughout the evening which ended very awkwardly when she delievered our check before asking if we watned dessert. Another server came over to run the CC when we informed her that we wanted to see the dessert menu, the rest of the evening our waitiress did not come back over. The first dish we ordered at 730pm was the sweet potatoe raviloi, we were informed that they just ran out... Who runs out of a dish at 730pm on a Saturday at a half full resturant? The rest of the food was eh, calamari was very greasy, crapcake bland, salmon with skin with the hilight being the filet which was good.

    My wife and I ate one night while staying in Hilton Head. Both ordered the same meal but got two totally different quality steaks. Wife's was excellent. Mine was thinner, tough and had a lot of inedible trim. Could not ask for better service, but meal was a disappointment.

    We chose this place for our 39th wedding anniversary, it was not the special occasion we had hoped for. I had requested a window seat, the staff were originally going to place us at an awful table near the door. They did however offer us a complementary drink when I refused whilst they prepared another table. The menu was basic and not as we had previously seen on line. This was " casual dining" people wandered through the restaurant in beach clothes and the tables lacked cloths. The staff were excellent although our waitress misinterpreted our request to have a starter as a main course, ( we did not correct her). They also provided us with free dessert with happy anniversary written on the plate, a nice touch. The food however was awful

    Took my boyfriend for his birthday based on positive online reviews for HH Prime. We were not disappointed! Steak was the best I've had in a long time, and the sea food was all fresh and perfectly cooked. Our waitress was friendly and helpful, and they even comped my bf's dessert (instead of bringing out a stock birthday dessert). Can't wait to go back!

    If you're looking for a Ruth Chris or other higher end steak house, this isn't the place in my opinion. 3 of 4 of us ordered Filet Mignon and when we got the plate, everything looked good, but the steaks were overcooked and very dry. I ordered medium rare and it was also dry. Great place for kids, and very elegant decor.

    We enjoyed our dinner. The setting looking out toward the ocean was very pleasant. The chef was very accommodating and tried to please us. We had a delicious salad which was very fresh and food was well cooked. Some of the food such as grits with the shrimp were too spicy for me but the dish was good overall. The mussels with bowtie marinara was also too spicy even though we asked for it to be mild.

    Head great steak and crab cakes. Family friendly, but for what is supposed to be a limitless more upscale environment... Was a little too casual. I know HHI has a casual dress code but barely covered swimsuits and folks wearing things that look like they just came from the gym? They should still require people to dress nice casual as it spoiled the environment. Frankly I was a bit worried, but the food was ver good. Service was on the slow side and for the prices the service should match the food... Seemed woefully understaffed.

    We have eaten here twice, once on each yearly vacation. We seem to remember the food being fantastic last year, and though it was great again, it was a small notch down. Still very good - but not amazing like the first time. Hubby had the filet and I had the vegetarian pasta. The Cesar salad was very good.

    The food is excellent and the service is very good. I do not enjoy having diner with another couple, where people noisy people enter and exit the dining room from outside, beer in hand, and voices disturbing. This is not a place for a romantic or intimate dinner. You can not even enjoy a quiet conversation among friends. MANY other restaurants on H.H.I. that are comparable or better.

I enjoyed greatly the Strawberry Balsamic Glazed Gouper, creamy red beet and feta cous cous, stewed strawberries and beets with wilted spinach. A great meal and a great place. We'll be back again.

Our waiter,Sean, was wonderful and our meals --I had shrimp and my husband a crabcake --were outstanding. Don't be put off by the fact it is in the Omni Hotel--this restaurant is terrific--some of the best food I've had in the 25 years I've been coming to HHI!

    I was pleasantly surprised by the food at HhPrime. When we first arrived in the restaurant, I was disappointed that it wasn't fancier. For the price, I was shocked that so many families had children in the restaurant, especially at 9 p.m. So this restaurant is certainly not good for a romantic meal. The menu selection also struck me as limited. But once our friendly waiter brought our meal, my attitude changed. The wine was excellent and everything we ate was spectacular. Here is what we learned the next night: the bar across the hall, XO, can serve the same delicious HhPrime menu (minus the children sitting nearby!). Problem solved!
