Old Oyster Factory
Beautiful view and great serviceDefinitely a real find. Great food, service and view! Will come back again.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food with a beautiful view!My Mom and I had dinner at the Old Oyster Factory on June 7, 2013 and were able to sit out on the deck overlooking the beautiful marsh at sunset. The view was amazing and our meal could not have been better! Our fabulous waitress, Jen K, recommended everything we ordered - the Hot Oysters appetizer, a delicious bottle of Gerard Bertrand Chardonnay, a perfectly prepared trio of shrimp, scallops and lobster tail entree, and finally the decadent chocolate mousse in a graham shell with fresh berries that was the perfect ending to a very enjoyable meal. We will definitely go again and take others with us next time.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experience every timeGreat table, great food, great view!

The food is always good and the location is great! I love looking out over the water while enjoying a good meal!5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently GreatThis was one of several visits that we have made to Old Oyster Factory while in the Hilton Head area. Our server, Ferenc, was the same server that we had last August. He reminds me of a server in a five-star restaurant, as he takes your order without writing anything down, and gets every last detail correct. He is also consistently replacing your beverage glass the moment you pick it up to take the last sip.
As always, the food is consistently great. Our party of 6 ordered very different meals, and everyone was more than satisfied. This place is a must visit anytime you are in the Hilton Head area.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AM5/22/13As always, the food was great. We started with the crab and artichoke dip...outstanding...best we have had on the island. My wife had the day boat scallops and I had the crab cakes. Both delicious! Michael was our server and did a great job!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved this restaurant!! WeLoved this restaurant!! We dined here twice during our stay in hilton head!!

Great table in the window at sunset, amazing hushpuppies brought to the table, friendly server, delicious food (I got filet mignon and my husband got scallops/crab cakes and calimari)...overall fabulous! Don't visit Hilton Head without stopping at this local favorite! Call ahead for reservations if you can. There's often a long wait! Popular place!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOrder early..Great experience. Only complaint by 7:40 (2) of the nightly specials were gone.

First off--THE VIEW! It was absolutely breathe-taking during the sunset!! ((Beware: use protection, or the bugs will eat you alive--locals you know what I mean!!)) Once the sunset we traded our table for one inside which was not a problem at all. The happy hour here is honestly to die for! The oyster and peel-&-eat shrimp were amazing and fresh!! The ambience was great and our server was attentive. After splurging on the cold apps we decided to split the glazed salmon with olive tapenade on top OMG--soooo good! SO.DARN.GOOD! Overall, one could come to the Old Oyster Factory for a casual dinner or a very special evening.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food but a little loudWe went on Mother's Day later in the evening to avoid the kids hours. Ironically, the table next to us that hade 6 older adults were extremely loud. The view is great if you get seated at the windows that line the whole building or eat outside. The oysters were big and delicious. Service was great, too.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMIsland GemFabulous restaurant! The view at sunset is spectacular.

It was overcast and we didn't see a nice sunset, but still worth the trip.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasion treat!We love the Oyster Factory--the views are incredible and the food is always well prepared and beautifully presented. The servers are knowledgeable, helpful and attentive without doting and the restaurant atmosphere-surrounded by river a march views-is simply divine. For special occasions with special guests, this place is always a hit.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper PlaceWe have gone to the Oyster Factory for many years and have always enjoyed ourselves. This year we brought friends with us and they were very happy with everything including the waiter who was great. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMNot as good as it once was!,Food not as good. Just not the same. Changed hands? Very different.

The food is excellent. The wait staff very friendly and accomodating. The view is spectacular.

It was well worth it! We each got the trio which included lobster tail, shrimp, and scallops. I forgo the scallops for more shrimp. The meal also came with vegetables and baked potato. It was really good. We also tried their gulf oysters because we had never had any before. They were also good. We also enjoyed the view even though it was pouring! Thanks for a great dinner. The service by the way, also fabulous!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHilton Head visitWe always love the Old Oyster Factory especially now that we can do an Open Table reservation. The management is always accommodating to every need. We made an observation about how my steak was done and the manager gave it to me for 50% off.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOld ReliableInclude the Old Oyster House on your restaurant list. The Oysters Rockefeller and the Low Country Gumbo are excellent. Entree portions are generous, seafood fresh. Always a good bet.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat seafood and view.

Tables at the windows have a great view of the water. Menu is varied and has something for everyone, with of course the seafood as the specialty. We had great service and each entree was highly rated, also had steamed and raw oysters as appetizers which were excellent. Moderate pricing for excellent food, will make the Old Oyster Factory a regular stop on any future Hilton Head visit.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, in every way the food,Great, in every way the food, service and view!

One medium well steak was almost raw and had to be sent back. Waitress was very good. Had to wait too long for drink order and goup of children were running and making noise all over the place. Have been there before and it is usually quite nice. So I don't know what happened!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat tourist restaurantVery good food for a tourist restaurant. Great view and very nice tourist decor. Highly recommend for anyone visiting Hilton Head or anyone who wants to take guests there.

Would strongly recommend!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Seafood Rest. for a GroupWe had a table for 11 (7 adults & 4 teenagers including one vegetarian) at 6:30 on a Friday night. The service was wonderful. We were seated quickly and our orders were taken promptly. The food was fresh, flavorful, and healthy tasting.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMView is spectacular! WhileView is spectacular! While we were there at a window table, three skulling teams put their 8 crew boats in the water; two rented boats docked; kayak group landed and birds flew all around. Our server was professional and the food was good - I had a naked fish - grouper with olive oil and lemon which was perfect. My only problem was how quick the service was. We were still enjoying our salad when our entrees were delivered. When you are enjoying a nice meal, it is better to have it spaced out well. It is a big restaurant and I am sure the sunsets are spectacular. It was chilly out so the outside area wasn't being used, but in the summer, that would be the place to be.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time to HHI -- Old OysterFirst time to HHI -- Old Oyster Factory our favoritedinner of the trip! Too cold to sit outside -- but still had great views from indoors. Food was awesome -gumbo and scallops my favorite! Love that it wasnot surrounded by touristy area.

Beautiful water views, excellent food and friendly servers. The seafood trio (lobster, shrimp & scallops)was excellent. Cooked perfectly. The beef filet and shrimp skewers were outstanding. Very tender beef and great shrimp. The baked potato was one of the best we have ever tasted. Apparently, it is crazy busy in season but we had no problem getting a same day reservation on a Saturday in March.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
