RECENTLY DINED AT THE OLD OYSTER FACTORY ON OUR LAST NIGHT IN HILTON HEAD.
THE VIEW WAS EXCELLENT, THE SERVICE ATTENTIVE AND THE FOOD VERY GOOD.
PORTION SIZES WERE GENEROUS.
WHEN WE FIRST ARRIVED WE REALIZED WE WERE OVER A COOLING VENT, WE ASKED OUR SERVER FOR HELP AND SHE QUICKLY FOUND A VENT COVER AND PLACED IT OVER THE VENT SO WE COULD STAY AT OUR TABLE , WHICH HAD A PANORAMIC VIEW OF THE CREEK, BAY AND MARSHLAND.
THE RESTAURANT SITS OUT INTO THE MARSHLAND AND HAS SCENIC VIEWS IN EVERY DIRECTION.
LOTS OF GROUPS OF VARYING TYPES; FAMILY, LADIES GOLFING GROUP, COUPLES, AND FRIENDS. ALL SEEMED TO BE HAVING A GREAT TIME.
AMPLE PARKING AND ALSO EASY TO REACH VIA UBER OR LYFT.

Atmosphere outside was disappointing due to construction work going on down at a lower level. Scallops were ok.....just ok...but at 29.99 an entrée is a little steep.....In my opinion....one of the only resteraunt's on the island that offer a scallop entre...load it up and mark it low....you'll have a massive croud looking for them!

We visit the Old Oyster Factory at least once each time we come to Hilton Head, and this is the first time I have been disappointed. We were seated in the bar area and it was very noisy. I ordered seafood pasta and asked that it not be blackened, but it arrived blackened. The waitress did say she would return it and "fix it" but it had been a pretty long wait so I said it was OK. The desert was also disappointing this time (marscapone); came out with shell broken and again waitress said there were others in the back and she could go get another, but wondered why she didn't do this to begin with. Also mistake with the check (in our favor) that seemed to take a very long time to get corrected.

Great restaurant with a great view. Both of our meals were wonderful. I had the spinach salad to start and the low country boil which had fantastic shrimp. My husband had the special - tilapia topped with shrimp and scallops. He loved the hush puppies also.

Lucky to have a window seat and could watch the activity on the water. Wasn't expecting complimentary 'hush puppies' to start, and then every meal also came with soup or salad. Great service, good food.

The summer season is approaching as the placed was crowded. Yet the service was quick, the meals were sent out hot and prepared to order. The sun was setting to make for a wonderful evening dinning experience at our favorite location.

Terribly disappointing!
I’m just speechless! Started out with promise but crashed and burned when the entrees arrived. Decent bottle of wine, excellent oysters Rockefeller but then the poorest excuse for Sea Bass was delivered to the table. I think of Sea Bass as a thick buttery fish but the fish look more like Lake Bass or river trout. Said nothing.... no point. Really awful!! The entire entree was dreadful. Never again!! Worst meal my husband and I have had in many a day!!

Three couples went there for Mother’s Day. Noise was extremely loud. Service was good. Low country boil was good except for the heavy seasoning which made it a little to spicy. Cod was ordered by two people and very bland. Steak and chop and fries were excellent.

I had the Broiled Seafood Platter and was excellant, and my wife had the crab cakes and raved about them. The scallops and shrimp were VERY good, fresh catch was OK, veggies were under cooked and were more raw than cooked for my liking. We had Tiffany for a server and her personality made our dinning more pleasureable and a good job.

Thanks

The Old Oyster Factory is a wonderful "fish house" on Hilton Head Island. My swordfish was 100% perfect! Once a decade do I say this: By perfect, I mean that they had to buy (or catch) a perfect swordfish, blacken spice it perfectly, cook it rare, serve it immediately, with drawn butter. That is not easy to get right; and they did it perfectly!! Thank you sow much. I will be back.
