Our guests had some food allergies and every question they asked the server had to keep going back to get the answer. I have been many to the restaurant many times and this time it did not meet expectations.
This was our first time to visit the Old Fort Pub. It was a great experience! Our server was outstanding. He gave us all the time we wanted to order, eat and enjoy ourselves. We had a great view of Skull Creek as did everyone seated in the restaurant. The food was very good. It is a quiet atmosphere and a place you need to try!
We love a great cocktail in a beautiful atmosphere before dinner. This is the spot. Food is always great, service outstanding and a place to enjoy with someone special.
We had not gone out to eat since mid-March and we wanted to celebrate our 46th anniversary dining out. What better place than a AAA 4 Diamond restaurant. We requested a window to look over the inter coastal waterway at sunset. What a wonderful view. All precautions were taken for the customers. Social distancing, single use menus, and no single utensils, only wrapped complete sets of silverware when needed.
Dinner was spectacular, the best filet I have tasted on Hilton Head Island where we live. My wife had a wonderful gnocchi vegetarian dinner and we topped it off with their famous Pecan Pie Ala mode.
A must try if you are looking for an elegant dinner and wonderful views.
OK, it's dining during Covid. Outside seating was distanced properly, but seemed actually more crowded than previous occassions on deck. Seated promptly, but given notice as special birthday occassion reservation,, a more intimate table should have been offered. Next to in/out steps didn't make it. 2nd night server had minimal knowledge of offerings from menu that was obviously limited from once again, previous occassions. Pre entree pastries and ending chocolate commentaries are nice touch, but again, given reservation notice of birthday celebration would have thought a small acknowledgement was expected. OLD FORT is still favorite on island, but this experience was far below typical previous occassions. Of 1 - 10 rating would be less than 5.
The view across the water at sunset was incredible. Dinner was fantastic - chipotle shrimp and pork chop were delicious. The service was wonderful - Shane was attentive, informative and friendly. We'll definitely return for another round of drinks and dining.
Setting, ambiance, service and scallops appetizer were excellent. The salmon was ordered medium-rare and came well done, The size was miniscule and was supposed to be in a citrus glaze but instead was served in a bowl of citrus soup. It was served with a mountain of lukewarm orzo and plain vegetables. Very disappointing. The manager did apologize, indicated that it is hard to cook salmon (?) and did take half the cost of the salmon off the bill. The stuffed flounder was also miniscule with unidentifiable stuffing and served with a mountain of couscous with the same plain vegetables. Again, very disappointing. This restaurant came with a 5 star recommendation. Perhaps they have changed chefs? or maybe they need to. Maybe we just ordered the wrong thing or came on the wrong night, but for the expense it was not worth it.
We did not feel welcome, NONE of the staff was friendly, limited menu and way overpriced. There are so many friendlier places on HHI who deserve our business. We will never return here.
I have been before and never disappointed. This time food and service sub par.
Beautiful views of the sunset over the water. Wonderful food. Highly recommend.
We sat outside on the Porch for bruch. Lovely view, servers wore masks and food was delicious. We and our guests throughly enjoyed our meal and felt very safe. So grateful to have this wonderful restaurant so close to home!
Excellent. Ambience was awesome and food Excellent.
If you're ever in Hilton Head, this is a place you must visit at least once!
AWESOME views before the sun is gone and very scenic outdoors and indoors too anytime! AMAZING courteous personable and respectable staff! Delicious food! 3 of us had the Prime Filet Mignon and I had the Stuffed Flounder. All perfectly cooked and delicious! Crab soup is PERFECT! The Harvest salad as well! And the Pecan Pie and Cheesecake were so delicious. My husband is a cheesecake lover and he actually said that he thinks that's THE best cheesecake he's ever had. Pecan Pie is up there too! Only regret is that I wish it wouldn't have been a cloudy day (it was actually storming) and that we could've made a reservation for sunset. I swear that it has to be a magical spot for it!
I wish I could remember our server's name. We sat outside and he was phenomenal! Wonderful visit by the Chef and his "on the house" dessert to celebrate a birthday. The food was superb, ambiance spectacular, and would go back again and again when visiting HHI.
Great anniversary dinner.
Exceptional service and delicious food.
My husband and I were celebrating our 50th anniversary and we decided to have Sunday brunch at Old Fort Pub. So glad we chose this restaurant for it was elegant, classy, and had a romantic view. The food was delicious and our service was great. Impressive and attention to detail!
Always a pleasure. This time we took advantage of the delightful outdoor patio with a lovely view on a wonderful summer night. We love this backyard gem!
Anniversary dinner....probably our 25th. visit. Always wonderful!
We’ve vacationed as a family in Hilton Head for the past 32 years. We typically have our last dinner at Old Fort Pub and it caps a beautiful trip. Food, ambience and setting are the best on the Island. Thanks to the wonderful staff that marked our dinner there so special.
We sat outside for sunset it was beautiful lighting! Our waitress was great! Perfect timing on drink and dinner orders. The swordfish was perfectly done, moist and delicious. The Grouper was delicious as well and super fresh! The key lime pie with raspberry sorbet was so refreshing and even with appetizers it was all well portioned so you weren’t so stuffed afterward. Loved the ambiance and history of the place, but the staff including the chef made it that much more special.
Six of us dined on the patio. Cocktails were delicious although the red wine drinkers in the group were not pleased with their wines - felt the bottles had been open too long. All entrees were well executed and delicious.
Our server was excellent. Ambiance the best
Tonight we were looking for a new place to dine in Hilton Head. A quick text to a few friends who visit the island often both, quickly suggested Old Fort Pub. We then quickly scanned the online reviews which were balanced and yet favorable.
So it wasn’t a big decision to try the Pub. My wife had a salad and the special Sea Bass and I enjoyed the Caesar and then the Shrimp with grits. Simply awesome.
A great view, prompt service and a wonderful meal. A perfect night and we will be back.
Thanks Chef Michael for swinging by to check in on us.
What a great time and beautiful spot to see the sunset. The food was exactly what we remembered. Outstanding crab appetizer, and excellent lobster pasta. The food will not disappoint.
Food was overpriced. The service was excellent but my Paella tasted like it was sitting in chicken broth. No saffron flavor and small portion.
Service was simply great. Halibut was pretty good and the view is amazing.
Very great view of the harbor and go for the sunsets. Food was ok ..they have a new executive chef who came to our table at least twice - he’s going to be changing up the menu so will go back next time in HHI
Whenever we go to HH, we make a reservation at the Old Fort Pub. We have never been disappointed, in fact, always delighted.
Excellent food! Always a delightful dining experience.
Our server was great and so was the food. Great ambiance and it's an excellent place to watch the sunset on the water! If there are no window table tables available ask if there are any upstairs. We ended up sitting upstairs next to tge window with more of a birds eye view. We had the place to ourselves too!
It was our 49th Anniversary and the perfect place for a really delicious and romantic dinner. We saw the sun set and it was so special!
Excellent dining experience all around
Always amazing! Love it! ........................
Amazing experience from sitting down till the bill. The staff was so good along with the food. Great first night to a long weekend!
The service was great and the meal excellent - as always.
Looking forward to our next opportunity to dine at Old Fort Pub.
I have enjoyed OFP since 1983, still the best fine dining on HHI. The view is breathtaking and the quality of food and service outstanding. Unique setting, quaint facility and romantic views. The only other restaurant on HHI of comparable quality and atmosphere is ELA'S...on the Water.
Went on a weeknight with friends.....everything was outstanding except that the restaurant was too warm for our comfort! But the food was the best I’ve ever had on Hilton Head! We all ordered something different and everyone cleaned their plates! Dessert was also excellent!
Beautiful view and exceptional service
