Great food! Great service!
The scallops were amazing and our waitress was awesome. A definite repeat!
Wonderful atmosphere and delicious food. Shane was a fantastic and attentive server!
Great experience sitting outside on a beautiful night. Right by the Harbour town lighthouse which is a neat area. The only negative is paying nine dollars just to get into Sea Pines.
Been going there for over 20 years. Always a special treat.
Outstanding experience at CQs again. We are never disappointed. Great food, drinks and service. Looking forward to our next trip to HHI and CQs.
Food was very good, although portions are quite small. Drinks are not their forte. Service is strong.
Great food..we had 3 different entrées and each was excellent, beautifully presented, hot, not lukewarm.. Nice Wine selection . Waitress and other staff very attentive to our needs.
Excellent food, service and wine!!! I do not remember our servers name but he was working the tables in the bar area. His suggestion for wine was on point!!
Another great night at your restaurant
We’ve been here many times for special occasions while in Hilton Head and they never disappoint.
So my friend is right. This is the best restaurant in Hilton Head. If you want a quiet dinner this is it. Limited menu so you are not overwhelmed with choices. Started by sharing the fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese. My wife had the salmon, I had the seafood pasta. Split the key lime pie for dessert.
Wonderful service. Beautifully restored building.
This is where you go for the one splurge dinner on your vacation.
Our meal at CQ on Sat. eve was nice. There wasn't anything specific wrong. We enjoyed it but it wasn't stellar like our 2 previous experiences there (which were in summer of 2020) This experience was pleasant but not the same. I remember there were tablecloths on the outside table last year. The tiki torches were lit then to keep the bugs down. Both those things were missing this year. The food was very tasty - but little touches like the 3 flavors of butter were missing. I know the pandemic has changed everything in service industry. Our waitress was lovely and didn't seem to be spread too thin which was wonderful. I wish she had a nametag on so that I could have thanked her by name. I do recommend CQ, but hope that they work to bring back the level of quality that we enjoyed in 2020.
Absolutely terrific sat outside by request was lovely setting under oak trees . Service was prompt and friendly . Angelo our service was a pro made great suggestions, was spot on on both dins the short ribs he said would bet best and was right on Qi they do a nice wine pour also we been going to C Q on va k since 1979 glad it still one of the best on HHI Complement to the chef , and wait staff thank you. C ya next year
Food was delicious. Special butternut squash soup was excellent as was short ribs.
Have been visiting CQs off and on for many years
Keeps getting better. Clam chowder was best we've ever had. Pork chops really perfect
Love the food here and we have never been disappointed . Food is outstanding. We dined outside but would have appreciated the waiter wearing a face mask.
Excellent food and service!
Food was delicious and generous portions. Waitstaff very friendly and attentive. Low country vibe and charming inside. Highly recommend!
First time visit to HHI and this restaurant did not disappoint. The service was top notch, food was amazing and the ambiance was perfect! 10/10!
We were disappointed. CQ’s was one of our favorite restaurants on HHI. My seafood pasta dish left much to be desired. There was hardly any lobster, the sauce was watery and the pasta mushy/overcooked. My husband’s strip steak was very good but the potatoes were cold. The waiter brought the dish back to the kitchen and it was returned with a lot of gravy all over the food. When I booked the reservation on Open Table, I noted that it was for an anniversary celebration. CQ’s did not acknowledge it even though we ordered dessert. Very disappointing. Certainly not worth the $300 including tip.
So deliciously delicious- gorgeous night to sit outside! Food wonderful great service- loved our special date at CQ’s!!!
Excellent meal. Well prepared. Shane was an excellent waiter, knowledgeable, witty. Overall a very good experience. As all resort areas food is expensive.
Food and service was very good. However, after spending well over $100 for dinner, I was required to go to my vehicle 10 minutes away to retrieve a $9.00 parking pass so they could credit me on the dinner tab. Sad that a customer can’t be trusted. Left an otherwise bad taste in my mouth.
How the staff dealt with us was amazing!! Crazy 60 year old women acting like kids is hard! So much fun. Thank you!!
Shane was an excellent server. Being close to the kitchen door increased traffic flow but the atmosphere made up for it. Food was outstanding and never disappoints.
Have been here many times before and always have enjoyed our experience. This the was the best. Server was excellent, the menu choices was varied and well prepared. Evening was a success.
We haven’t been to CQ’s for a number of years…but we were so glad to be back! Our dinner was excellent and the service was perfect! Be sure to try the lobster & shrimp
Pasta dish…yum! We will be back!
This restaurant with a very interesting history, was very disappointing. The servers ( I know they are hard to get) seemed polite but unsure of themselves. There was a "overseer" type gentleman following the hostess and servers continuously without lifting a finger to help. Creepy.
We paid a hefty sum for some of the worst crab cakes I have ever had. 90% filler with the consistency of mashed potatoes.
My advice, if in Sea Pines stick with Sea Pines Resort properties.
Great service, great food, great atmosphere, great time
Anniversary dinner but come a few times a year .One of our favorites. Always all good.
Beautiful outdoor seating, excellent food
Amazing food, excellent service, gorgeous setting. Bartender John great asset to the restaurant
Lovely evening - a friend recommended and did not disappoint. I cannot wait to return. On vacation I’m used to slower service but the food came out so fast and perfectly. I’d say that was shocking… but only because I’m used to slower services coming from NY!
Food was fantastic and great service. A must for any Hilton Head visit.
Once again we had an excellent experience at CQ. The wait staff was very friendly, efficient and professional. The food was excellent as well. They even served the cobbler very hot as requested by us which doesn't often happen. Very satifying experience and we'll definitely be back.
Pork chop and strip steak were very tough. The Cesar salad was soggy. Shane made me take my ESA tiny Yorkie out of the restaurant. No other restaurant on HHI had any issue with her. She remains in her carrier and makes zero noise!
Food and service were excellent. Our party of six had a great time.
Certainly worth going too; food, staff, ambiance great a bit pricey but is HH so what can you expect.
What a great dinning experience. Ava was our server and she did a fabulous job.
