This was our third visit and it was as delightful as our previous dinners. Old Fort Pub has great ambiance, consistently wonderful food and very professional service. It is becoming one of our favorite restaurants in Hilton Head.

This was our third visit since the first of the year to Old Fort Pub. It has become our favorite restaurant in the area. The sunset views, service, and food has always been terrific. I have written about those in other reviews. All that makes this experience all the more disappointing. We returned this week as we had a coupon for a special, $33 for a starter, entree, and dessert. On the coupon it states it is not good on Valentine's Day. We were there on the 15th, but when we presented the coupon we were told it was not being accepted on the 15th, 16th, and 17th as well. We showed the actual ad to the server - she said she would get the manager. Someone returned - not the manager - and stated they were not honoring the ad, but did admit the coupon only stated the 14th being excluded. "It is somewhat misleading, I admit". Only after a long discussion were we given a small discount on the meal. The manager never appeared. As I stated above, the food and service otherwise was great, but the experience still left a bad taste.

Great restaurant to spend a special occasion. My husband and I celebrated Valentines Day here. Be sure and ask for a window table. One of our favorites on Hilton Head.

I had always heard good reviews of Old Fort Pub, and our visit was prompted by a coupon special. The ambiance is very cozy. Unfortunately, this time of year the sun sets too early to enjoy the view. The menu contains a nice variety of appetizers, salads and entrees -- something for everyone's taste. The entrees are pricey, however, and none of us felt they were exceptional. I don't believe we'll be going back unless we can take advantage of a special.

I love Old Fort Pub. This was the first time I was disappointed in anything I ordered. I tried the Southern Oyster Rockefeller. It was so saturated with pimento cheese and collards I could not taste oyster at all. The sauce on my Mahi Mahi was outstanding, but the Mahi had a fishy taste. Perhaps a bad night as it was restaurant week and very busy? Phenomenal service and my husband's food was delicious.

This elegant restaurant with a beautiful sunset view over Skull Creek never disappoints. Excellent food choices, nice service and varied wine/cocktail menu. Our table all had the winter locals special- 3 courses for $33. Can't beat that excellent deal. Beet salad, Caesar, lamb chops, and squash soup for starters. Dinners- salmon, grouper, and steaks served with risotto, potatoes, mixed vegetables and delicious sauces beautifully presented. Dessert- their famous pecan pie, now a tart, but still very good. We will continue to support this local gem!

Wonderful overall. The "lollipop lamb chops" were outstanding, along with the
entire meal (grouper).

Old Fort Pub has everything going for it -- great views and great food. It's a bit pricey, but they offer coupons off-season that make it a good value.

We dined here our first evening of our vacation at Hilton Head Island. The restaurant had gotten 4 diamonds in our AAA TourBook. We both enjoyed she crab soup with extra sherry, although there were no chunks of crab. Still, it was very tasty. My husband ordered another appetizer, the skillet "roasted" calamari, which he said was more like a stew than roasted and the calamari rings were small. I ordered the scottish salmon medium rare, and it came out medium and a little dry. Our wine selections were good. Service was slow for a Sunday night, and we were not sure if the kitchen was slow or our server had too many tables.

We visit the Old Fort Pub every visit to HH. We stay in Sea Pines so it is a drive for us, but well worth it. We had short ribs this last visit. They were awesome! Great wine selection too.
