Delicious food and great view!!! We enjoyed their sunset menu. Great service. Have celiac and can’t have gluten and they were very accommodating! Fish was excellent! I am very picky with eating fish out and I enjoyed my dinner. No complaints! Nice relaxing dinner with a great view!!

Old Oyster Factory easily accommodated our group of 6 couples. Serving sizes were ample and the food was good. Our server was exceptional; pleasant, timely, and met our needs.

Beautiful view overlooking cranes and a gorgeous sunset reflecting of the marsh. The floor to ceiling windows and open concept gave us a great vibe. Fresh ingredients, fish and good selection of drinks. Good upbeat atmosphere, family friendly, but noise level was fine with plenty of space between tables.

Good service. Loved the Hilton Head ice cream for desert!

Great view but the food is average at best. This restaurant is called the “oyster factory “ but the oysters we ordered were the worst we’ve had on the island.

Very disappointing for the price. We ordered their specials for the night. The scallops at $29 included 4 breaded breaded and fired scallops, a small scoop of rice and a few pieces of carrot and green beans arranged on a plate. The two crab cakes at $26 were soft and mushy without much flavor. We are happy to pay these prices for well prepared food, but this was quite bland. We had much better crabs cakes and local food at a small restaurant just down the road.

MahiMahi is a thick fish, mine was about. Quarter inch , 2 very small pieces & all the rest veggies.
For buy one get one the price was rediculous.
The shrimp was undercooked & made a person in our party sick.

Waiter not trained enough in dealing with a costumer who’s food is over seasoned with too much salt! 2 people ( out of a party of 8)at our table had same dish “Pork Chops” that was overly Salted! We were there 2 weeks before & did not have this problem! Only one of the 2 diners was given a discount!!! Everything else was fine!

We've been to this restaurant 3 times in the last 2 months. The thing that first occurred to me this last time is that the wait staff has been outstanding each time. We were a party of 5 the first time and parties of 8 the last two visits and the service was efficient, and very pleasant and professional. Prices for some menu items are a little on the high side but not outrageous. They run a BOGO (buy-one/get-one) promotions regularly (at least off season, not sure about in-season) which is outstanding. This last visit I had the Low-Country Boil which I enjoyed very much and was plenty of food, including generous portions of scrimp and kielbasa.

Fish was dry...we had sea bass not even sure it was that kind of fish because of dryness you couldn’t taste, asparagus was undercooked and chewy
Disappointing meal, three of us had and agreed.
Perhaps because we had bogo attention wasn’t applied as much as a full paying company.

I will offer credit for the restaurant permitting an exchange for risotto.

Old Oyster Factory was recommended by friends but we were truly disappointed.

Had reservations for 7 which worked out fine but downhill from there.The food was about on par with Captain D's! At least you know what to expect there. The service was of "closing time" quality. And getting into the restaurant was a real chore for my wife who had is recovering from a knee replacement.

Will not go back there!!

This restaurant which overlooks Broad Creek in Hilton Head, SC has a wonderful view where you can watch the wildlife and the sunset. The food is okay, but the real reason a first time visitor to Hilton Head has to go there is that is a place that has been there since before the tourists arrived. The hush puppies are wonderful too as is the gluten free flourless lava cake.
