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!

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

Nice pleasant restaurant .....we sat inside near the front door... but their is an outside deck with bar areas and lots of seating for a future consideration.

Service was good ...better than most ...

Food was very good.... We ordered She Crab soup (one of the best I've tasted on HH), Broiled seafood collection, and Lobster Pasta dish. All very good. You don't mind paying a little bit more when the food is this good.

I have already recommended this to someone I played golf with the next day .

We will add this to our list of HH favorites and go earlier when we can see the water.

Sorry but the food was horrid. Our fish and vegetables were so over cooked that they were inedible. The restaurant had been recommended but I don’t know why. We were so terribly disappointed and then had to pay a ridiculous amount for the bad food.

Poseidon is one of our favorites in Hilton Head with the outdoor seating and a varied menu. I enjoy the Perloo and order it often. My wife and one of our friends ordered seafood and both said their meals were very good. Our fourth ordered a steak and was less than enthusiastic. Our server was extremely busy as he was covering a large area of tables so his presence was hit and miss.

Went on a Saturday night and sat outside. Very noisy next to the outside bar. Waitress was very attentive. My wife and I found the food to be average. I had the mixed grill and she had the stuffed shrimp. Appetizers we had were the tomato pie which was probably the best thing we had. The hush puppies were fried very hard and bland.

We enjoyed our dinner here. The shrimp and grits was very tasty! The Eye of the Tiger drink was really good. The prices are a little higher than should be for the casual atmosphere, but we had a nice meal here.

Both of us ordered a special, Demi Glacé Steak, one well done, the other medium rare. Both were so tough we had trouble cutting and chewing it. I do not believe it was steak, I think it was a cheap chuck roast. The rolls, mashed potatoes, and vegetables were good. I told our server when she asked how the dinner was that I would never order it again because it was like shoe leather. She offered to get us something else, we declined the offer. A man came by later, I believe a supervisor, I told him the same as I told the server. He offered to get us something else and free dessert and said he would not be charging us for our dinners. We each had dessert, caramel cheesecake and chocolate mousse cake, both very good. We were disappointed because we had been there in April and had enjoyed our meals.

View was overstated and underdelivered. We made reservations a week ahead and requested best view and wound up on patio next to a road overlooking a marshy area. Otherwise was typical touristy place. Not up to usual SERG expectations.

This is my second visit to this restaurant. It continues to be a great place at a fair vale to enjoy seafood and and a great ambiance fro entertaining. Will definitely be a place aI eat and share with others each time I visit the Island.

I ordered a dinner with filet medallions that arrived covered in a glaze with wine as an ingredient. This was not specified on the menu. I am highly allergic to wine and anything cooked with wine or cooking sherry. I had to send back to have replaced. I was asked if I could "eat around" the meat and was left with the meat and glaze on my plate. So, I just did. The replacements came after I had finished most of my sides and had zero flavor and did not resemble a filet cut of meat. I had a filet at another restaurant in this same restaurant group during my trip that was outstanding as well as a seafood meal in same group that was outstanding as well. Very loud atmosphere, though lively and understandably celebrations going on. Have visited HHI for 2 decades but will not revisit this restaurant.

Disappointing experience at this restaurant. Their raw oyster selection was way too sparse with only southeastern and gulf coast oysters and way overpriced blue points. None from Canada nor Pacific west coast. They had no fresh "catch of the day" either. Our server was good. The broiled seafood dish I ordered was tasty but overpriced. There are too many good restaurants in Hilton Head to bother with one.

Normally we love Poseidon, but both my husband and I were very disappointed this time. His Perloo was just shrimp and rice with no sauce. My scallops plate looked very plain and disappointing; the scallops were good, but the sweet potato and vegetables were not as good as usual. With what we paid and our prior experience here (3rd visit in 5 weeks) we expected better.
