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!

Service was poor. The food was served ice cold. We asked for grits to be replaced and they were cold too.
The fish was very poor quality.

The service was great! The salmon was very good. The fried seafood dinner was mediocre. Nice selection of craft beer.

Nice restaurant. Packed on a Friday evening. Good food. Salmon was delicious. Mussels entre as an appetizer is the way to go. Endless rolls. Great atmosphere.

Mani wither undercooked or not a good piece of fish since we sent it back and couldn’t eat the second one.

Bread arrived at end of meal.

Disjointed. We were kind of in the way I think.

My wife and I have been there many times since they opened this time We went for Thanksgiving evening dinner not very crowded certainly somewhat understaffed service was just okay kitchen seemed slow however all the food was very good but there was a very limited holiday menu and it was $38 per person which seemed a bit pricey .....all in all okay

We enjoyed the Thanksgiving pre-fix menu and came back on Friday for seafood. Everyone enjoyed the meal. My son and his wife especially enjoyed the crispy sushi and were surprised by the size of the meal.

We had a lovely dinner at Poseidon this trip -- it's one of our go-tos every time we come to Hilton Head. We chose to sit outside, due to the busy evening (and not booking far enough ahead of our visit). The food as always was delicious, although the sides for the Grouper dish were a little salty, but the fish itself was tasty. The Shrimp and Grits were divine, as were the Fried Green Tomatoes and Calamari. PJ did a fabulous job taking care of us. We'll be back in the summer!

Very mediocre meal. Appetizers were good however the main courses were not something to rave about. Large amount of rice on the plate with little vegetables. Shrimps were not well cleaned and salad was wilted. Disappointed.

We went in a group of 6. Service from our waitress was excellent! I wish I could recall her name because she was so attentive and pleasant. The foos was very good everyone in our group was happy with their meal. I would go back again. The cost for 6 was under $250 with some people having a drink which I feel was a good price.

We were looking forward to the dinner since it was for a bachelorette party, but we were ultimately disappointed.

Highlights: the waitress and manager were really great, blue crab dip, and calamari were good as well as the drinks.

Needs improvements: the duration it took to get food out was way too long. Our reservation was at 7:30 and we didn’t finish until 9:30, with our entrees being delivered around 9:10ish. The entrees were adequate, nothing to “die for” but apps and drinks were great. It took around 30-45 minutes to get our drinks and apps as well.

Ultimately, the manager and waitress were really kind and understanding and worked with us to end the night on a high note. Seems like it was just an “off night”.

Would recommend if the wait wasn’t super long to get food and drinks.

We went here in order to take advantage of happy hour specials and to hear the Thursday night dueling pianos after dinner.
Disappointed that we were sitting in the wrong area for happy hr. And a private pArty on the rooftop meant no dueling pianos. Disappointed.
My scallops were good- not the best I’ve eaten. My husband loved his shrimp and grits (and it was a huge portion). Green tomato caprese appetizer was also excellent.

I was last at Poseidon for my sons 16th when they first opened. The food was unremarkable and nothing to write home about. Disappointed!

This restaurant has an extensive menu of seafood. The food is fairly good, and the value is best when you dine between 4pm and 5:30 pm.

We enjoy the casual outdoor atmosphere ... a place where the entire family can dine together even with little ones. Had brunch on Sunday to celebrate Mom's 94th birthday. A good time was had by all. When not with family members we enjoy a casual lunch or brunch for two at the Nauti Bar where Brock, Scott, Blair, Trevor, and Super Mario take very good care of us and the other regulars. Cheers!

After years of satisfaction, my 25 dollar entre was a big pile of fries with a few scallops and a few oysters (tiny). Very poor value. Too many place on the island where the portion would have been appropriate for much less. Will not rush back

Our server Barb was great!! We loved her personality and she was very attentive. Unfortunately, the food was just ok and totally not worth the high prices. My $31 fish entree was plated like I was at a diner.
