WiseGuys Steak & Lounge
Awesome food & serviceWhat a GREAT place! Food was outstanding. Wine list excellent. Our waiter Sam was pleasant and helpful. Our table of 5 had three different steaks and all were very good. I would highly recommend - great decor, great menu, great service. What more to ask for? Try the French onion soup.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service!First of all, reservations were very easy to make and we were actually seated before our scheduled time- on a Saturday night! Our waiter (Robert) was very attentive, but not in our faces- we had everything we needed and he was on top of everything, but we didn't feel pressured or hurried at all. I had the petite filet mignon which was possibly the best steak I've ever had- it practically melted in my mouth. It was cooked to perfection (medium) and the Bernaise butter was delicious as well. My husband had one of the pizzas (with basil) and it was also delicious. Best meal of our whole vacation and we ate at some fantastic places!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Steak & Serviceour filet was so tender you could slice it with the fork - it was great! the service and atmosphere was also good. Very nice local place to eat - it was very very busy, but we were able to make reservations the night before with no problem for a table for two. Drinks were very reasonably priced. Huge wine selection.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMconsistantly great!Wise Guys has consistant fabulous food, knowledgeable, professional and friendly wait staff. Who could ask for more?5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Anniversary Celebration!I dined at Wise Guys on Thursday night with friends - the Beet Salad, Shrimp and Grits, and fried bread pudding were all wonderful. My friends raved about the short ribs. The food and fun were so good that, on the way out, I made a reservation for Saturday night to treat my husband for our 24th wedding anniversary. Megan Witte was our server for Saturday night and was a great help. She helped us choose the wine to pair with our heavenly Rack of Lamb and Filet Mignon. The evening was topped off with the bananas foster with chocolate hazelnut-filled crepes! Already looking for another reason to return to try some of the small plates.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dining ExperienceWe were staying at the Disney Vacation Club resort, and they recommended several restaurants with Wise Guys one of them. The restaurant impresses as soon as you walk in. Nice ambiance. Waiter was young, but he did well. The wine list is extensive. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly, and was melt in the mouth tender. The petite "Not so traditional Caesar salad" was a perfect starter. To end the meal we shared the Creme Brulet flight. Five small servings of different flavor Brulets. Oh My!! A flavor treat to share with a glass of good Port wine. Truly a memorable dining experience! We will be back.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe will go again!Just visiting HHI. Wonderful find. Good wine list, selection of food. Great Food, Service, & Wine. Selections and quality make us want to go again when we are only here for a week.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the first time atThis was the first time at Wise Guys. It was wonderful! Great food, service was outstanding. I would reccomend this restaurant.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good option on the islandGroup of five of us really enjoyed this restaurant and the Main St. shopping area. I was the only one who had been there before. We ate outside on a beautiful night. Service was just okay this night, although the last time I was there in March it was just great.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMA must do restaurant!Great varity on the menu with several unique offerings in the small plate category ! Very nice wine list both by the bottle and glass. I had the very affordable flat iron steak which was very good. We are part time residents and make Wise Guys one of our must do stops.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a "foody" experienceDined with some friends who frequent the island but had not been to Wise Guys. We were seated promptly and although we had a new waiter, he was quite efficient and knowledgeable even though he told us this was his second day.
All of us enjoyed the wine flights and shared the tapas plates. The Calamari and Shrimp was excellent. The Fried Chicken and Waffles seemed a bit sloppy and less attractive than in the past - primarily due to the flat and soft looking waffles. Short ribs as sliders and main plate were excellent - soft and tangy.
Is one of our island favorites.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been there twice nowWe have been there twice now and have really enjoyed it. Food and service were excellent.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst visit, will return.A typical mens lounge atmosphere with reds, blacks, mirrors, soft lighting and energy. Waiter was excellent. After a change in order by wife after I ordered one of her favorite by the glass wines, he delivered her first order. Subsequently he acknowledged his mistake and offered a second full glass of the correct order on his tab. Honesty pays. Steaks were perfection and salads as well. Dessert devine. Well done. After many years coming to HHI, this forst visit to Wiseguys will not be our last.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went with small plates/tapasWe went with small plates/tapas and were very impressed with our first experience with a Serg restaurant...we'll definitely try others.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed the experienceWe enjoyed the experience together with a group of twelve friends and

Nice atmosphere, comfortable. Great night.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a notable experience.It was a notable experience. The service was outstanding. Our waitress knew the menu thoroughly and any questions we asked her about any of the dishes, she offered a detailed answer.
The calamari appetizer was out of this world and my husband ordered the salmon as his entree and I must say its one of the best I've had. My steak (Bistro sirloin) left a lot to be desired, unfortunately. Nevertheless the staff was very accommodating and kind.
Over all is a great experience. Lots of good wine and good food.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMNot your "local yocal" touristNot your "local yocal" tourist spot....

Recommend..chicken and waffles, shrimp and lobster wonton and WG salad .3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe visited Wiseguys whileWe visited Wiseguys while Honeymooning in Hilton Head. Everything about it was just perfect. We will definitely be back and will most certainly recommend it to our friends as well.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a good time.The simple facts:
1. Waiter - Excellent, Sam was one of the best we have ever had.
2. Drinks - Had a Bloody Mary that I have never seen! Came with a shrimp and was magnificent! Could have been a meal in itself!
2. Food - Must order the small plates (shrimp and calamari was the best!)
3. Desert - Lava Cake was great!
Overall one of the best places I have been in the Hilton Head area to date and the price was right for the quantity and quality of the food!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food...roasted beetGreat food...roasted beet salad and shrimp and calamari were great3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall it was good experienceOverall it was good experience we had the lamb chops and the NY strip. Lamb chops were exceptional the steak did not have the rich dry aged beef flavor I was expecting. The vegetables were properly prepared Creamy Yukon potato, Crisp sauteed baby green beans, wilted baby spinach. We would definitely go back and taste some of there other offerings
A quick comment on steak if they want to be a notable steak house they need to step up their game. I have experienced some notable steak house and i would travel to dine at Ditka's, Weber grill or NY to Peter Luger's3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dinners at Wise GuysThis is one of our favorite restaurants on the Island. The interior is sophisticated but comfortable and tables are nicely spaced. Service is superb and food is excellent. On our first visit we sat outside and the four of us ordered a variety of sliders and pizzettas, all of which were great. On our next two visits, we sat in the beautiful dining room in the back and ordered steaks and a few of their signature dishes and everyone was pleased with their selections, especially the braised boneless beef spare ribs. A word of caution to those making their reservations online -- the restaurant is always full. One night we arrived 20 minutes late and the hostess had just cancelled our reservation (but graciously seated us anyway.)3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were so impressed withWe were so impressed with our meal last night that we came back for our last night in Hilton Head.

This was our second visit, our first being last New Year's Eve. We enjoyed it so much we decided it was worth trying out again to see if it really was a good restaurant or whether we had had too much to drink.
We ordered six small plates for four people and enjoyed the variety of taste sensations, wonderful presentation and innovative cooking. The desert menu was also worthwhile and the prices not too bad. Definitely moved up into my top three restaurants on the Island and we will be back.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMVery enjoyable!The four of us had a very nice evening. Three of us had the flank steak and the other had the fish and chips - very good! Nice beer and wine list although I thought the wine prices were a little high. Very enjoyable.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM25th anniversaryJennifer was our server and we found her to be helpful, knowledgable and professional without being pretentious. We loved the shrimp and calamari appetizer, it was absolutely delicious as well as the bottle of Pinot Noir we ordered. We found the young woman in the red dress walking around the restaurant jotting down notes of some sort to be a bit intrusive and misplaced in a very cool environment which changed the entire vibe. Overall, a very good experience.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMProve itTake a Monday night off season in March on Hilton Head Island and ask a restaurant to prove to you it is all it is advertised to be. Well we asked WiseGuys to do just that. You know what, They did it with flying colors.
I love small plates. It is a great way to try an number of dishes and the four of us must have tried at least 10. All were excellent. They meal was paced just fine for conversation, while the restaurant was more then 50% full.3/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
