We reserve up to 75% of our restaurant for walk in guests in an effort to maintain reasonable wait times. Table availability for groups of 7 or more varies daily, please call for reservations for groups of 7 or more. With a reservation at Poseidon you may have to wait up to 15 minutes for your table to be ready. You do however completely avoid the wait list for walk in parties, which can be substantial.

From our outside NautiBar, the inside “The World is Your Oyster” Bar, covered patio dining on our Front Porch, the Rooftop Bar with live entertainment, Coastal Provisions retail, and the adjacent waterfront Town Park, there is so much to see, you will want to come back again and again. Poseidon brings together a true, unique, Coastal Hospitality® and dining experience that we hope will create wonderful memories that will last a lifetime and be remembered for generations to come. Enjoy!

Was disappointed. Took New residents of HiltonHead. Food was average. The service , even being a busy Saturday evening, was very good. To expensive for what you got. To many better restaurants to choose from. They do gave a great location. Had been going for years and now, not high on my list of recommendations

We read the reviews and took the opportunity to visit tonight. Our waitress was phenomenal allowing us a slow pace dinner and to order as we were wanted. The oysters and broiled seafood platter more than delivered. We will likely return before the week is out as we so enjoyed our experience!

The service could have been much better. We didn’t feel like we were welcome and the hostess upstairs acted like we were inconveniencing her. The table was very cramped and they kept bringing more plates without taking away the plates that we had stacked to the side. The food was kind of just basic seafood but it was good.

Location on the outside is perfect, service was very good. Food is just average, it's O.K but we wouldn't call it outstanding. My wife had the perloo and I had the cod. Vegetables needed a little more cooking and we thought the overall presentation could have been better.

We were a party of 8 and had a terrific time at Poseidon. My husband and I shared the ‘Coast to Cost combo’ and it was amazing...a meal to remember for sure! The others had various menu items including flounder, grilled seafood mix and steak and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Would definitely recommend Poseidon if you’re a seafood lover!

Had the grouper and it was good but the sides were warm at best. We were compensated for the problem but still I would rather have it done right. This is the second time I have eaten there and both times there were problems. I won't be back.

As regular patrons, I usually love this place. However, the flavor of She Crab soup, was not as good as usual and was just warm not hot.
My husband’s pasta serving was very large, it was tasty but had only a minimal amount of chicken and vegetables. He will not order this again. It needed a better balance of pasta to vegetables and chicken.
My salmon was good, lots of vegetables that were very tasty however there was a very scarce amount of lemon butter on the salmon. The waiter did not return to ask if we wanted anything else after our plates were delivered by a different server. My husband was not offered cheese or pepper for his pasta.
The restaurant was not busy so I expected service could easily have been better.

Dinner was fine, but nothing to really recommend it. Had been told the crab cakes were good, but they were not great (Redfish and Santa Fe much better). My husband said his soup was so spicy that he should not have eaten it. Asked for butter on the side for my sweet potato, but it came buttered. Worst problem was that it was truly about 4 min. from the time we ordered until when our dinners came. My husband had just gotten his soup. The waiter and manager came over almost immediately to apologize (without us summoning them), but it felt like a fast food rather than a nice dining experience. For $26. for each of our entrees, it should have been better.

Decent food, not spectacular, but the interior is all hard surfaces. The atmosphere is so loud, we could not carry on a conversation. There was music playing, but it too was barely discernible . The waiter was very helpful, the menu is varied, and the beer and wine list is good. Easy parking.

We had the dynamic duo of Emma and Gabrielle for servers who made the night amazing! Had separate checks for 4 families, they sat our kids next to us at their own table and went with a party of 18-everything was perfect! Not easy to do but they pulled it off! Great food and the best service. If you are a family looking for the best experience this is your place!!!!

Nice lunch for two. The fish was fresh and very flavorful. We especially enjoyed the fried clam strips although the portion size was somewhat small. The current SERG group book is a nice value good through the end of February.
