We were at Links for Sunday Brunch. We just love the spot. My wife ordered French Toast and I ordered a Biscuit Sandwich and Smoothie. It took 30 minutes for the smoothie and 40 minutes for the food. This is the second time in consecutive visits that there seems to be an efficiency problem in the kitchen. Our food came out cold and our Server never checked in on us. The atmosphere is awesome and the food is very good. I hope that the efficiency problems get addressed. We will try one more time before we remove from our list.

Venue is lovely but overall experience so-so. Service was very slow. Did not see our waiter for long intervals. Short staffed maybe as this was a Sunday night. It was restaurant week so we ordered from the price fixed menu. Onion rings were very greasy. Salmon was good but there were a lot more potatoes on the plate than salmon. My friend ordered her steak rare and it was cooked medium. Extremely small portion. More like a snack. Hummingbird cake was very good and portion was nice but tasted more like banana bread with cream cheese frosting than the traditional cake as it had no pineapple in it. (I’m a southerner so I know about Hummingbird cake). I
had always heard good things about this restaurant so was excited to try it as I am a resident. Afraid I will not be beating a path back to their door anytime soon. Too many other options on the island.

While the food was good, we specifically asked for the salad to not be brought at the same time as the fried calamari so that we could share both -- both were brought at the same time. Also, we had told them we were sharing both these items and I would have thought the salad would have been 'split' for us.

We have been going to Links for over 3 years for weekend brunch. Today (2/9), we took out of town friends. Our server, Stephen, was very cordial and service was as expected. One person ordered the breakfast BLT. The toast was nearly burnt. Another person had the Links Breakfast. Their toast was burnt. Another had the Breakfast Biscuit. The biscuit was a hockey puck. No flakiness; it was stiff as a board, and even using butter and jelly did not help. I understand that the chef is “new” and the that other chef has gone to another Sea Pines Resort property. It is my hope that this changes - as burnt toast and a biscuit as hard as a hockey puck should ever be served. It was not overly crowded. We’ll be back and give it another try. We didn’t ask for other breads to replace these, and we could / should have. But we were on a time schedule and needed to leave the restaurant by a certain time.

The food at Brunch was good-the coffee was very good-and I am fussy about the coffee-a Starbucks snob. The view of the golf course was lovely . The service was a little slow to be honest so no 5 stars.

We visited Links while staying on Hilton Head Island at the recommendation of a friend. We were so pleased and will definitely plan to go back during our next stay. The dining room was bright and airy and well appointed with comfortable chairs. The entire staff was friendly, accommodating and professional. The menu was so full of so many good choices that we can’t wait to go back and try other items. My husband had the prime rib sandwich dip with a Caesar salad, both were fabulous. I chose the grilled peach salad with goat cheese, candied pecans and shaved country ham. It was magnificent! Our 4 year old grandson was with us and he had a lovely child’s chicken tenders (hand breaded, not frozen) and French fries. His meal included a beverage and homemade cookie, which made it an excellent value. All 3 of us polished off our entire meal. Links is one of the best restaurants we’ve ever visited! Can’t wait to return!

Links was functioning on all cylinders! I’ve always felt that Links had so much potential but consistently fell short. However, on NYE, everything was perfect — menu, food, servers, hosts, management. Don’t know why but I’m hoping this will be the new consistent for Links. I’m looking forward to returning more often!

We went for dinner on Christmas Day and it was obviously understaffed as everyone was tired and working slow. Food was pretty good but we waited forever for drinks and bread. Ha to ask for water refills multiple times but I understood the poorer service because it was Christmas. However, our desserts came without ice cream as every table around/before us had some. They waited until 5 minutes after our reservation time to seat us even though we were 15 minutes early. There were plenty of open tables and we could have sat and waited at our table and not outside of the restaurant.

We have eaten at Links several times in the past few months. This week we brought friends who are vegan and the wife has a life-threatening allergy to a specific food. Alex, the manager, could not have been more helpful in making it a great experience! He spoke personally to the chef ahead of time and checked in with us during dinner to make sure all was OK. He and the chef were prepared with a vegan meal and guaranteed no cross-contamination. The team's goal was to provide a pleasant experience for the four of us with no stress on us and they succeeded 100-fold. The personal attention we received was amazing and we commend Alex and his staff for a great experience!

The dining room view was wonderful - lovely & comfortable, service was excellent, menu choices were very good. We enjoyed everything that we ordered and appreciated how it was presented. We rated our meal a solid B+ as it would appeal to most diners, but we didn't find anything particularly spectacular or innovative. For these reasons, I would recommend Links particularly for groups as the menu and preparations would be a "safe bet" for a wide range of tastes.

It was just ok, not what I expected for a restaurant at a Golf Club that you pay $300+a round for golf. Don’t waste your money on the unlimited Bloody Mary, tasted like there was very little vodka in it.
