CQ's Ratings and Reviews
Excellent meal tonight at CQs. Food was superb, the best meal in many restaurant nights. Debbie was extremely competent, met our needs without being intrusive but friendly as well. She recognized us from previous service at a companion restaurant years ago. We’ve seen CQs before on many trips to Hilton Head but always felt the menu was too traditional for our tastes. Not so. Had amazing spicy sautéed calamari followed by a delicious autumn salad, which they split for us in the kitchen. Lobster risotto was yummy, as were the scallops special. I️ have a feeling this will become a must dine restaurant when we return for our annual Hilton Head trip.
I was very impressed with how accommodating the staff was as I slowly increased our party from 4 to 6 to 8 throughout the day of our reservation... They couldn’t have been more gracious and put us at a table with a server that was terrific. All of us were very impressed and will definitely return...
We are local residents and decided to try CQ's for my wifes 68th birthday. when i made the reservation i mentioned it was her birthday and you would think they would do something. well no, in fact we got a terrible table downstairs, another couple complained about theirs and were moved up. we did not say a word. the food was average, the drinks were well poured, the service was mediocre and the bill was expensive.
CQ’s is in Harbor Town in Sea Pines. It’s the only restaurant that we visited in three days that’s not owned by the Sea Pines Resort. It’s also the best! The style is definitely not beachy…a few rooms and lots of dark wood and tasteful clutter. The dinner menu is full of mostly cost-effective temptations. The wine list is definitely cheaper than in any Sea Pines owned establishment. KJ Chardonnay, a widely available wine was 30% cheaper than almost next-door. It’s also the only restaurant that served an amuse bouche. As we had a big lunch we ordered courses that were small or planned to take some home. My pan seared duck breast was delicious and I didn’t make it to the confit leg! It was accompanied by brussels sprouts “petals”.. deliciously tasteful, unlike the bitter taste you get with the normal little cabbage style. We also had quail with butternut puree and braised pork belly with soy glaze and apple slaw. Friends has a large grilled rack of lamb and cavatelli with lobster in a cream sauce. For dessert we sampled crème brulee and a pecan tarte. And a special birthday taste. Definitely, a must try if you’re within ten miles.
Have gone here every year and everything has been excellent. Last evening I had the black grouper which was supposed to be served with risotto. It was served with some sort of porridge. I had the waitress remove it from the plate. My husbands pork chop was very good
The cuisine was excellent. They have a lovely menu that varies seasonally. The wait staff is attentive and efficient. The ambience of this facility teeters between quaint and musty and neglected. Parking is a challenge. Walking on the uneven, poorly lit surfaces around the restaurant after dark is another challenge.
We were celebrating a co workers birthday while on a business trip. The food was outstanding and the service exceptional. The palette cleanser served at the very start of the meal was a perfectly delectable garlic artichoke mousse. I would go back for that alone
