In compliance with Governor Henry McMaster’s executive order requiring restaurants across the state discontinue on-site dining to slow the spread of the coronavirus, The Sea Pines Resort has temporarily closed the dining rooms at all of our restaurants and made several changes to our food and beverage service.

Starting at 11am Friday, March 20, we will offer a special to-go “Best of Sea Pines” menu, featuring favorite dishes from all of our restaurants, with FREE delivery within Sea Pines or curbside pickup at the Harbour Town Clubhouse. Gratuity is not included but greatly appreciated. No discounts apply.

The Sea Pines Resort remains open and is committed to doing all it can to provide exemplary food service without compromising the health and safety of our guests. As soon as the temporary ban is lifted, we will resume our regular restaurant operations.

Although they accepted reservations and I requested a table outside, those tables are not included in the reservation system. We had to settle for a table inside. I had timed our dinner to see the sunset but we were seated back from the windows and couldn't even see out to enjoy the view. The food was fine but nothing to write home about. It was served by a man wearing his mask below his nose. Plus there was a crowd at check in. Not a great place to stay safe from COVID. I would not return to this restaurant.

The best dining experience we had all week during our vacation on the island. We had an amazing view as we dined inside of the harbor and Calibogue Sound. Our waiter Lenert was very attentive and wonderful. We had lobster tails and coconut shrimp which were very good. The restaurant surprised us with a complimentary happy anniversary dessert of key lime pie! I added on open table that we were celebrating our 10 yr anniversary and they took notice!! Fabulous!

The view was nice and our server was nice. But this is a major tourist trap. The only thing that was good was the corn fritters. The wine was decent but they ruined it by serving it in cheap, scratched, plastic wine shaped cups. It was ridiculous. The blackened chicken alfredo was a 1 out of a 10. Bland and the chicken was dry. My husbands fish was overcooked. Everything was extremely overpriced for the quality or lack thereof. Do not waste your money.

We’ve been coming to Hilton Head for the past seven years and I’ve always wanted to eat at Quarterdeck but could never get in. This year I used the Open Table app and made a reservation six weeks in advance so that we could celebrate an Eighteenth birthday for someone in our party. It was a wonderful experience all the way around! They did a fabulous job welcoming us, seating us, serving us, and celebrating our special guest! Great job to all!

Food was pretty good. We had the fried calamari which was fried well and came with a good peach pepper sauce. The spinach salad and wedge salads were also good. The tuna poke was in a sauce that was too thick, but a good portion. Our waiter was wearing his mask incorrectly- under his nose. This made me uncomfortable. Otherwise he was just ok.

The only thing that I can say that was good about the experience was the service. Our waiter was extremely nice, attentive, and pleasant. I had the margarita which was mediocre. The fish special was overcooked and not very flavorful. The kids meals were a little more than warm when they came out and the food was otherwise underwhelming. I would definitely look for somewhere else before going here.

We were visiting the island on vacation. The food was nothing to rave about. The view of the water and the harbor was very nice. After trying various locations on the island I would recommend other places well before this one. After trying Quarterdeck it is not a place we will return to on our next trip.

Went here for the view...which was good, though not breathtaking. However, the food was tastier than expected (though 1 plate, lobster mac with pork was both a bit oily and the pork was mostly fat).

We chose the Quarterdeck for our last meal of our week in Hilton Head. Made early dinner reservations. Our party of 6 was led upstairs to a big round table, socially distant from other patrons. Our server followed all health protocols. Drinks were expensive but good, especially the Bloody Marys consumed by several in our party. We can also recommend the Gouda dip with bacon as an appetizer. Our entrees were all tasty. We did not have dessert. All in all we were very pleased. Dinner at the Quarterdeck was a great way to end our vacation.

Our server was very attentive, which we appreciated. Corn fritters appetizer was delicious. Our main course menu items reminded us of banquet type food- definitely not special. Views were beautiful overlooking the harbor. My pet peeve is when different staff bring out the food and don’t know who ordered what. That happened here and we had to shift around our plates to get it right. Because of the location, I’m sure they get lots of patrons. Would welcome an updated menu or top notch chef to really bring this restaurant to a new level. Doubt we will return as there are better options on the island.
