Our experience was overall very nice. It was a lovely evening and a beautiful sunset. We would go again and would recommend. Felt like it was a little overpriced but overall a very nice experience. I would recommend but would not say it was an exceptional experience.

The Old Fort Pub continues to provide an excellent dining experience! We were seated quickly at a great table with water view with an Open Table reservation. Our food (Shellfish Cakes & Seafood Bouillabaisse) was as good as we expected - service was perfect. Prices are on the high side for Hilton Head but you get a great dining experience and we will return next visit to the island!

We arrived early and ordered a cocktail at the bar and headed outside to the deck area
where we enjoyed a great view and quiet conversation.
At our appointed time we went inside and were seated at our chosen location.
The service was very professional and friendly. The meals we chose were perfectly prepared
and very creative.
This was our second "special" occasion visit to the Pub. As new permanent residents of the
area we have decided that future visits will not be just for special occasions.

One of Hilton Head's finest restaurant. Great service and a lot of interaction with the manager making conversation and checking to make sure everything was right. We had a wonderful view from a window table overlooking the inland part of the ocean. Our waitress was excellent and the food was outstanding. We go ever year we visit the Island.

Sorry to say that this was one of our worst dining experiences although it formerly was a favorite and we have gone there every year for quite a few. Tonight we were not seated where we request every year. While we recognize that requests cannot always be honored, it was fairly obvious obvious that our request was simply ignored. Management was rude in response as well as not wishing to address my question of why this reservation was not eligible for rewards. Could it be because they failed to check us in??My husband had to face into the setting sun which was not good for the eyes. Then an ice bucketfull of ice was overturned just behind me. Good thing it was water and not ted wine!Overall we were treated very poorly. No customer service! We had planned to go back next week because in the past we really enjoyed the restaurant. Now we are wondering if they deserve a second chance.

The Old Fort Pub salad was one of the best, simplest salads I have had in recent memory and the pecan pie was also just remarkable and not your typical gooey pecan pie. These two were standouts. My entre however, the stuffed flounder, was mediocre at best. The view is great and the service was good as well.

My wife and I have been to Old Fort Pub many times over the years on our annual visit to HHI. The view, building, and all of the staff are excellent. Relating to the food. First, the menu selection needs to changed. Seems to be the same selection year after year except for the special daily option. My wife had the flounder stuffed with crab. The fish was over cooked / dry and the crab meat was a very small amount and also dried out. Very small amount of sauce. I had the she crap soup which is always very good. I also had the She

I had salmon and my wife had the pork chop. Both were excellent. If you're getting a salad you can't go wrong with the Pub House salad. Excellent wine selection. Amazing view of Skull Creek especially for sunset.

Ate brunch outside on Sunday. Nice and quiet for friends conversation. Service was great as always. Wrought irons chairs outside need cushions to be comfortable. They are very hard and have an odd curve for a short person. Otherwise we had a good meal. Rain started back as we finished our food so lucky timing.

WE DECIDED TO RETURN TO OLD FORT PUB FOR A ROMANTIC ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION AND IT DIDN'T DISAPPOINT.
The ambience , menu, and service set it apart from many of the restaurants that have opened in Hilton over the past decade. It is not loud, crowded or look like every other chain offering on the island. The food was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. Our server, Laura, was charming , attentive and helpful. The grounds, outdoor dining area and scenic view throughout the dining area makes it the perfect place for a date or to celebrate a milestone. It is slightly off the beaten path, but the trip is certainly worth it. We enjoyed taking a self guided walking tour of the old civil war battlements after our meal and enjoying the sunset before heading home. A unique Hilton Head classic, you won't be disappointed.

It was a shame they ran out of two of the appetizers we wanted but other than that the main course were outstanding. Two of us had the lamb which were excellent prepared and the other person had seafood. We have come here on many occasions for their Sunday Brunch, but this time we came for dinner. It was a beautiful sunset which added to the delightful evening.

Used to be my favorite. But really, $9.00 cup of bisque, quiche was too dry and reheated, beet salad was warm with wilted lettuce. Never again. Too bad....

Too expensive for this quality food. Used to be gourmet dining, not this time. Really disappointing.

Not enough staff like many restaurants on Island now but should be well staffed at these prices.

I have been to Old Fort Pub often but surprised to find that my children hadn’t and they have lived in Bluffton for 18 years. So I let them take me for Mother’s Day! They love fine dining and good wine so will definitely return. The food was superb and the sunset stunning. We had a memorable evening. Thanks to all at the Pub.
