Old Oyster Factory is our favorite restaurant on Hilton Head! We come at least once whenever we’re in town! The hush puppies & the chocolate mousse are to die for. Yum!!

Good. A little disorganized with table and reservation handling. Not great timing with kitchen food service. The timing between the hush puppies, salad, and then main course was long.

Our family is from the north and it may just be this was our first south seafood in ages but 1) waiter is to explain they use heavy heavy sea salt... ask to exclude this in your dish then the restaurant will be top notch. If a bucket platter is to be dumped into a dish it is waiter job to explain 2) we came for the oysters as the family knows their oysters and this was great having the sampler platter 3) ordered crab leg with meal and they were the skimpier than ever and the lobster claw too... this is an oyster place 4) shrimp was delicious

Food was great. Service was excellent. There's areas where there is really goo available views. The atmosphere kind of reminded me of being in a cafeteria because it was loud. But I enjoyed the food immensely was very good.

We enjoyed our return visit to the Old Oyster Factory on our anniversary weekend in Hilton Head. Normally we sit outside but could not due to weather on this visit but we did get to sit at the back of the main dining area overlooking the waterway. The food was good and we had a very attentive server.

Food was ok tasting. It was super noisy inside and tables are close together. Our waitress was good but I could have been better if she wouldnt have had so many other tables.

Great service and beautiful surroundings. Great parking situation as someone tells you where to park. Great overall experience, but food is just adequate. Not what I was envisioning as everything else was great. This was our “special night out” dinner and we picked it by the Open Table reviews. We were both disappointed. My husband had “special” mahi mahi and I had a nut crusted fish.

Seafood was not seared and appeared to be cooked all at once on the same plate in a steam convection oven like a cafeteria. Busboys were tossing and dropping plates and trays around without consideration.

Everyone there was very nice and we got in on time. The food was OK - everyone who ordered fish of some kind felt like it was dry and over cooked. Other dishes and appetizers were very good. Nice bar and nice place to see a sunset.

We come to the Old Oyster Factory on our annual vacation to Hilton Head. It met our expectations this year except in one area. The waitress was very pleasant, but not as attentive as we normally experience. Slow to bring us water refills, brought the incorrect wine, neglected to bring the complimentary hush puppies and forgot to bring extra salad dressing that I had requested. Overall our experience will bring us back again next year.

Water-front dining, both in the spacious air-conditioned dining rooms as well as on the shaded deck; delicious food from the varied and comprehensive menu, as well as delightful evening specials from the kitchen; attentive service -ask to be seated in Petey’s section- ; fireworks on Tuesday’s during summer months, best viewed from the scenic deck while enjoying live music and an adult beverage. Reservations recommended. DO NOT SKIP DESSERT AND COFFEE!
