    It was amazing. Linda caters to all dietary needs. Ben was kind and professional. The food was better than what we had in Germany. If you want Black Forest cake order ahead. The Apple strudel was perfection with layers of beautiful crust. Everything was hot and served beautifully. Can’t wait to go again. A hidden gem!!

    The food and service was excellent but the noise level was deafening. It actually caused our ears to hurt and one member of our party to get a headache. The size of the restaurant lends itself to a louder ambiance but there was a party of 4 that was next to us that was extremely loud with booming voices and loud laughter. They were totally unabashed by the looks of other diners and the host did nothing to try to quiet them. We should have left when it became obvious that these diners intended to spend the entire evening there but we had already ordered our food and had started eating our appetizers. They actually ruined our $300+ dinner that we had looked forward to. If I had it to do over again I would have left mid meal and taken my food with me. The inconvenience would have been better than the aggravation this experience caused.

    If you are on Hilton Head Island and looking for German food, this is the place! We hadn't been here in some time but had heard there was a change in ownership not too long ago, so we wanted to try it again. We were not disappointed in any way. The German food was excellent and authentic (and we lived in Germany for a few years, so we know). The only non-German dish we ordered was the rack of lamb which was generous in size and cooked perfectly. The service was attentive, but not overbearing. We are definitely adding Alfred's to our "go-to" list. Thanks for a lovely evening.

    Alfred's is our absolute favorite restaurant on Hilton Head Island. We visit the island every June and always look forward to dining at Alfred's. The food and staff are amazing, and it's so great to see so many familiar faces year after year. We were extremely sadden to learn of the recent passing of Guillermo - he's been a colorful icon Alfred's for as long as we can remember, and he will be greatly missed.

    Our first time dining at Alfred’s was overall a great experience. Scallops appetizer was really good-cooked perfectly with a light cream sauce. Nice fresh salads and my veal chop was outstanding! As was their German Chocolate Cake. Will definitely keep this little gem on the top of our list of places to revisit and recommend.

    We absolutely loved Alfred’s!! Everything from staff to the fabulous food. We had a great time. We have only one negative. The front door opening and shutting was so loud. It was very distracting. It just needs a pad or a slow close hinge to alleviate noise. We will be returning soon.

    First, let me say that the wait staff was very nice and I felt bad for them. They were hustling and the potential for a great night was there. In fact, we went there because we had heard so many good comments. BUT…eating dinner was not relaxing. The small room was overly crowded with tables, people and waitstaff maneuvering around it all. Kitchen crew seemed amused by this which I thought was unkind. There needed to be background music. Food was just okay. I had tomatoes and burrata. Wasn’t sure about the freshness of the burrata and during peak tomato season, mine came from a hot house and were tasteless. My husband got the sampler platter and house salad and said it was all good. I doubt he would have known the difference after his two drinks, which were incredibly strong. My sea trout was salty but the sauce it came with was delicious. And, lastly, the thing that put it over the edge for me were the big, fat flies that were everywhere. Everywhere! They were gross and my husband killed 8 at our table just so we could try to eat. . It’s understandable that they were coming in considering the door to the place was opened 1,000 times by customers and wait staff during the hour we were there. This place needs tweaking, updating and professional outside management to make it successful. It’s too bad. Like I said, the employees were very nice.

    Alfred's RestaurantResponded 6 days ago

    I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your time at Alfred's. Please rest assured that all of the food is fresh and the tomatoes from a local supplier are usually delicious - not sure what happened there but I will follow up. The flies are something that we have addressed with our pest control services. They have provided us with a solution which should help alleviate that issue - even after the rain. We hope you will give us another try and that you will have a better experience.

    They actually called and complained about a $20 dollar tip??? Party of 4 and 1 toddler. Yes I understand our bill was $189? We were there 1.5hr???? I am a single mother of two children and that type of bill is a lot for myself!!! I am a RN of 24 years and have busted my tail the past couple of years working! Food was great but I HAVE NEVER HAD A RESTAURANTS MANAGER CALL AND COMPLAIN ABOUT A TIP! Sure ruins the experience. We were all so happy about the restaurant and the phone call ruined it. I don’t know who actually owns this restaurant but this is not professional at all. We are all doing the best we can right now. This was Hilton Head SC.

    Excellent a true chef and great menu choices. German food is hard to find and we alway order the sauerbraten to judge. The chef uses braised short rib meat so it’s tender and not too vinagery. The other meals coming out all looked great. Choice pork chop cut like a steak. Bone in veal. Potato encrusted fish. Awesome food the service was friendly and would always check on us. It’s a small place so make a reservation. But the size I think helps them to manage the quality. Dessert was excellent too but we had it to go.

    What a great hidden gem. We’ve been coming to HHI for years and had not heard of Alfred’s. We had the pork chop and halibut. Both were among the best we’ve ever had. Extensive wine list, service outstanding, terrific harmony of German and French cuisines. Not to be missed.

    Food was just as good as everyone has said. Reasonable priced wine and attention to detail start to finish. The noise level was a problem for the 4 of us. Next time we might eat outside and take a chance on the weather.

    Alfred's RestaurantResponded on June 13, 2022

    Thank you for the feedback Frank - it can be quite loud depending on the particular patrons in on any given night. Outside is much quieter and as you may have noticed fully covered, heated and with ceiling fans so quite comfortable regardless of the weather. So happy that you enjoyed the food, wine and service and we look forward to welcoming you back for an outside reservation!
