Dined upstairs. Have been coming to HH for over 30 years. Upstairs at QD has always been a favorite. Management changed. Menu changed. Very average or below average. No bread unless you order as an appetizer. Very disappointed in the go to favorite.

Food and overall experience was disappointing. OK for very casual eating out, rather than for a special occasion, in my view. Expensive for the quality of food and the service was slow, due, we were told, to staff shortages. Our waitress was friendly and helpful. The window tables have great views over the marina.

We've been here many times. We came down to Harbour Town to watch the sunset and then dinner. Service was attentive. We went with two fried seafood baskets (oysters and shrimp). While tasty, they were slightly overcooked. The substituted fried zucchini was excellent, however. This still remains one of our "go to" restaurants in the area.

We have eaten at Quarterdeck for several years now, typically going as our last meal of vacation. We love sitting outside with a view of the water, listening to the live music, and enjoying the last sunset of our trip.

Unfortunately this past visit we were sat on the back porch away from the music. The sunset view was fantastic but the deck flooring was uneven which made our table slanted and seating uncomfortable. The gnats were biting like crazy and we couldn't hear the music at all. The food was just ok, service was horribly slow. Also my margarita was warm-- warm glass, warm mixture, warm tequila over ice-- very disappointing!

We will most likely visit quarterdeck again (creatures of habit) but will be sure that we are sat on the deck with the music in hopes that the ambiance will make up for possible shortcomings elsewhere.

Nice restaurant with great sea food. We ate indoors by the window and had a fabulous view of the ocean. We had the Lobster pasta which was delicious. For dessert, we had key lime pie which was very good too. Staff was friendly and welcoming. Would go there again.

We had a party of ten -- reserved and requested outdoor seating -- once we got there they said "all reservations are upstairs and inside" -- ok fine. We went upstairs to a large room with many tables with a view open -- we were seated in corner with large window where the shade was drawn. We asked for the shade to be opened and were told it was broken. So we sat in the only table in the house without a view. Waitress was nice enough and tried but service was slow slow slow. When we gave her a few credit cards to split the bill -- it was VERY confusing for her which we found very odd. Food was ok at best -- people go there for the view. I will likely return as it's a convenient location for me but just don't dig it unless you are sitting outside by the live music and the view. We were not made felt welcome at all --

The food was wonderful but the service was less than acceptable. We spoke with a manager about our experience who did nothing to correct it. We visit Hilton Head twice a year, and there are many other great restaurants that provide excellent service. I would recommend spending your money at one of those.

While the view was amazing - the food was absolutely inedible. The salt content was so high in everything that we couldn't eat it - even the fresh steamed vegetables.

The service was ok - didn't really ask about our food and the total on the bill for 2 was ridiculous. There are many better restaurants in the area - we won't be back.

Very good meal (dinner). I was impressed with the service. The waiter was great, then the maitre d came and finally the chef. All checking to make sure our experience was fine.

We had a party of 10 including 4 young children. They were well taken care of with milk for them right away and their meals coming with the adults appetizers. Could not have asked for anything more. Not inexpensive but great food. Great views of the harbor and sound.

Onion rings were great. Steamed shrimp quite bland. Triple tail fish was excellent. Broiled sweet, and delicious. The filet was very good and prepared exactly as ordered. The rolls with honey butter are definitely worth paying for. The view is fantastic no matter where you are seated. Great atmosphere and food with reasonable prices.

The worst fried seafood basket! The oysters and fish were soggy! We made a reservation so they put us indoors upstairs. We wanted to go there to enjoy outdoor dining with live music. Indoors upstairs we heard no music just kids. We had a view of harbor but it was freezing. I left table to go outside as it was so cold. Our server was excellent.

The food here was very good. We had the chicken poboy and catch of the day sandwich with blackened flounder. Both were delicious. The menu could use a few more offerings. As for service, Jack 'from South Africa' was a very happy, friendly and professional server. Couldn't have asked flyer more there. There is pier construction going on, so eating outside is a bit noisy at this time. Overall a good experience.

Our server was wonderful! The food was okay but slightly overpriced for the taste. My biggest complaInt was with the hostess. She tried to seat us in a corner by all walls with plenty open tables with a water view. I asked several times if we could please have a table with a view, as it was my sister and her kids first time there. She told me over and over those tables were reserved for certain guests. Finally she went and asked someone and came back and said we could sit there they made arrangements. She made it seem like I was being a burden asking for a table when there were tons open. Out of the 7 open tables with the view, only 1 other table was sat the entire 2 hours were there! Either she was not honest or 6 people cancelled their reservations last minute. 🤔

Although we were seated right away, it took over 10 minutes for a server to appear. We had to ask another server to find our server. When she arrived at our table, she apologized saying that she hadn't seen us even though she had visited two tables directly across from us (in her direct line of sight) while we were waiting.

The wine list is very limited. We wanted a Riesling, but they didn't even have a Riesling on the wine list.

The food was extremely average. Crab cake BLT was more filling than crab. The peel and eat shrimp over seasoned with Old Bay Seasoning.

The best thing about this restaurant is the location. It is a great place to watch a sunset. However, it cannot complete with all the other wonderful restaurants on Hilton Head.
