Old Oyster Factory
Beautiful views and sunsets from every table overlooking Broad Creek.
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.
Went on a heavy rain night...
Got great service...beautiful view I even in the storm,great service,clean...busy but got drinks fast and food was so so nice...what a pleasure,will go again when I am in the ara
Very friendly service by all staff. Food and atmosphere were wonderful. Came during vacation, had a great experience and would definitely go back.
Made reservations online and were sat immediately when arriving. We were waited on promptly by Chandler and he gave outstanding service. Our food arrived quickly and was DELICIOUS! I had the crab cake meal and my husband had the seafood medley. Definitely recommend eating here!
Fun night. Like going there. Our table was ready in 10+ minutes for our reservation. Good waiter. Portions were just right with some leftover.
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.
Food was very good. Service not the best... had to ask for everything... drink refills, hush puppies,condiments.
Food was great. I was disappointed with our seats. I made reservations a week in advance & ended up in the lioft with no window view. Overall service was good.
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.
The food was tasteless and everyone in our party agreed. The atmosphere was cool and made it worth it though!
Great service and great food!! Highly recommended
Overall great experience. Service was great. Food arrived quickly and tasted amazing. Reservation is necessary as restaurant was extremely busy.
Great views, good service and food.
Great service - well run from the parking to dining. We took our 4 kids and had a great experience.
Went twice this trip great service ..love calamari and oysters for apps both times. James and Petie took care of us!
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.
Great atmosphere and food! Fabulous service. Thanks!
Our server was outstanding but the food was just meh. Setting is incredible and we were there on a Thursday night and able to watch fireworks from our table.
The restaurant is great, Open Table not so much.
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!
Great find on Hilton Head Island. Very enjoyable!!
Table was ready when promised and they provided a window seat. Great Place to view sunsets over Broad River.
Ask for Isabel. The best server in the whole damn place. Food was fantastic
Food is fresh, tasty and well presented. It is a bit pricey, though.
This restaurant is always a pleasure. We enjoy it every time we go. It is right on the water and a beautiful location.
Great view and vibe in the restaurant. The old fashion was perfectly made and appetizers were all good. I had the ginger mahi and my wife had the surf and turf. We both that the meal was good however not amazing. In short we enjoyed our dinner and will be back.
Happy Hour is great! We had the early bird dining & it was delicious! The Old Oyster Factory has great food & spirits, superb service and family atmosphere! An outstanding restaurant! Highly recommended!
My daughters birthday- although they have a gluten free menu it is limited with no ability to adjust- however a very nice place to dine
Good food, not a long wait
Had a reservation yet still had to wait to be seated. Server took ten minutes to greet us, food was cold.
Vacation dinner, with family. Food was great, views from the table were great. Only negative was the volume of the other patrons packed into a very popular restaurant. Hush puppies are amazing!
Food was great and the service too! It was packed on Father's Day so we would expect the noise level to be high. It was a great experience!
Very good! Did get a little warm in the restaurant. Service and food was excellent.
We always look forward to our visit to OOF. The food has always been excellent, and the hush puppies are amazing!
