Great place all way around. I'd your in Hilton Head it is a must place to go
Visiting Hilton Head for the first time, traveling with my 80 yr old mom. I google everything now and not sure how we lived without it. Made quick reservations online through my phone. Arrived a little late but seated promptly. The low boil was not on the dinner menu but I asked about it since I read about it for this joint. The waitress said oh we can do that for you! Excited, we happily accepted . I cook mine at home spicier and I know if I had requested spicy they would have done it. The views of the water are calming. Eat, drink and enjoy!
Seafood was fresh and very good; excellent service. Enjoyed the experience. I will be back.
I always love the ambience but the food is never great. I go there for the view.
Wonderful food, wonderful service and wonderful views!!!!
Very nice meal. Everything up to and including the sun set was wonderful.
Great seafood never disappointed wonderful fresh and plenty of it you will never go hungry
Oyster Factory is one of the most popular restaurants on Hilton Head Island. If you can get a seat near the windows on the right side of the restaurant you get a terrific view of the sunset. This is a casual place, not fine dining. Service is always excellent and efficient.
The food was so amazing and fresh. We sat on the deck overlooking the water at sunset, and the view was just beautiful. The savannah oysters are a must try!!!
My husband and I had dinner here during our recent week in Hilton Head. We were looking for a quiet place where we could talk and were recommended an outside table, where we had a beautiful view of the sunset over the marsh. The waitress was outstandingly attentive and sweet, and it was a really cozy, quiet spot. We took advantage of the 75c oysters and shrimp during happy hour. The shrimp were great; the oysters not the best ever eaten, but good for the price. I had a crab cake dinner which was OK, not the greatest. The experience overall, however, was outstanding. I would definitely go there again.
Lovely dining and exceptional seafood!
The Caesar salad and crab cakes were delicious as well as memorable.
The old oyster factory has been and still is for over 30 years my favorite restaurant on Hilton Head island
This restaurant was crowded but not over crowded and the service was horrible. It was a Thursday night and not in season. The food was less than acceptable. Also, they need to either get a better air conditioning system and or get some shades to keep the afternoon sun from shining in. we will never go back. This restaurant is very over rated!!!
Our favorite dining spot on the island
Good food,good wine, good service, good views are a “given”
Wonderful waitress , fast efficient and a delight
Fantastic oysters scallops shrimp and crab. The rice was so good it could have been a meal by itself. Hushpuppies wow!
Fine food, fine location in HHI and fine service....strongly recommend.
Great atmosphere along the water. Nice location for the sunset. We ate dinner in the dining room but this is a great place to visit the bar and have drinks and appetizers as well. Our server was good and the portions were generous as well.
Great food and great views... a must!
Excellent food -- as always! Great location. Service was excellent.
Nice happy hour menu. If you like oysters come during happy hour. Service staff friendly and attentive. View fantastic. Came for sunset dining menu. Gumbo first course then Shrimp and grits. Great meal.
This was our first visit to Old Oyster Factory. It was my birthday and I chose the restaurant after hearing good things about it. I had a cosmopolitan at the bar and it was one of the best I've had. I ordered the tuna nachos because it sounded creative and they were excellent. I also had the Australian Sea Bass and loved it. My husband shared the nachos with me and had a seafood combo which he liked but not enough to order it again. Since it was my birthday the waiter brought a yummy dessert which the two of us could not finish. It was very sweet and a great complement to my cappuccino. The restaurant has a nice casual atmosphere to it. We'll be going back.
Second year to visit. Wonderful view of Broad Creek and surrounding marshes. Food is good, but the view is the big seller for us.
The ambiance was nice with a lot of wood beams and high ceilings, multiple levels for dining with a more secluded section where we were seated. Staff was very attentive and engaging. Outside dining looks to be even better when the weather permits.
Great atmosphere, food, and service. Will definitely come back again and again.
Food was delicious, service was excellent!! Will definitely recommend to friends and family vacationing on HHI!!
Was a little disappointed as Hilton Head has so many Excellent restaurants
At first, we got seated near the bar which was super noisy and crowded to the point where we knew we wouldn’t be able to enjoy our dinner. We had made reservations for our anniversary dinner, so this particular seating situation was really unwelcome and disappointing. The staff worked really hard to move things around so we could sit somewhere else and we were able to have the most perfect dinner! Food was absolutely delicious and the view was phenomenal! Can’t wait to come back!
As usual, we enjoyed a great meal, excellent service, amazing dessert and an incredible sunset view. We will be back!
Very clean facility and the service was awesome! Food was so-so. Whipped potatoes looked old & tasted as if they came from a box not like “real”potatoes. Crab cakes were good, but crab meat was mainly claw meat not white, lump crab meat. Soup tasted “fishy” as if the seafood in it was old. Atmosphere was nice & view was peaceful. I would go back for drinks & view, but would go elsewhere to dine.
This was my second visit to the Old Oyster Factory Restaurant and I was just as impressed as the first time. Their menu is varied and all the food is fresh and delicious. They have great wine selections, too. Also, it has a fantastic view!
We are from out of state and ate twice here. The first time we were a party of six and the food, service, and food was so great we decided to return the next week and again everything was perfect. We highly recommend going here.
View was terrific. Just in time for beautiful low country sunset. Service good. Food just alright.
Great place for dinner. Food and service was outstanding.
We like going to this restaurant whenever we visit HHI. We had a good waiter and wonderful view of the water. We love the baked oyster sampler-we get it each time we visit. Enjoyed and recommend the seared scallops dinner and the seafood sampler dinner. My husband does not like mahi mahi and the chef substituted salmon-husband was appreciative. Hush puppies are tasty!
Our evening at Old Oyster Factory was spent at a small table for 2 in a corner by the window where we could watch the sun go down over the marsh. It was beautiful. Since I suffer a shellfish allergy, I chose 3 fish dishes and our waiter helped me choose a grouper dish that was perfect for me. There are many choices of meals, a full bar, great desserts, and excellent service. You can go there on a date or a family get-together. It is very adaptable. We always go there the last night of our vacations at Hilton Head.
We ate at 5:30. We had the Sunset Menu.
Shrimp w. Penne - so so.
Surf and Turf - Filet Mignon - tender. But Three shrimp??
Are you kidding?
Menu - not so great. Ate here last year and from regular menu. My mistake this year.
Took advantage of a BOGO deal and enjoyed a fine meal with great service. Love this location as well.
Our waiter, Cooper was amazing.
This is a "Must-Go" restaurant for me and my husband every time we visit Hilton Head Island. We save it for the last evening of our trip to celebrate a good vacation. We have never had a bad meal there, the service is excellent and they have unique cocktails and daily specials. This is a great Seafood and Steak house and the location is very neat because it sits looking over the marshes and has views of the other side of the island.
