I can’t say enough great things about this restaurant. It is our favorite place to go in Hilton Head. Everything is superb. Highly recommend!

Good food and service! The room is very large with high ceilings so was chilly the night we were there. We walked from our condo which was really nice- a break from Hilton Head traffic

We have always had a good meal at Fraser's Tavern, the drinks are a good price but I would like to see Riesling wine by the glass, right now you only sell it by the bottle. I also like the smoked tomato used in your Bloody Mary, unique idea. We are never nervous to bring guests to your restaurant unlike The Beach Club, which is not consistent and not a good value.

Once of the best dinners we had in Sea Pines. We had a table outside which made for a terrific setting. Enjoyed dinner and meals were delicious. Daughters had the pulled pork sliders and burger which they loved. Staff was very professional and friendly. Unfortunately, they ran out of the ribs but hope to have next time.

Such a beautiful setting but we were disappointed overall. The food would have been good but the steaks were over cooked and the service was slow. The manager did discount our bill and was very apologetic so that made up for the issues. I would go back and give it another try.

This restaurant was the worst of the four “sea pines” restaurants we went to.
The table they took us to was a mess and had to be cleaned as we were standing next to it. The brisket pizza was awful. The pizza only had about 8, dime size brisket pieces on it. I was expecting a better serving of meat on the pizza. Our server was nice, but he was hardly around. We spoke to another family who comes to sea pines about 3 times a year, and they said they have tried Frazer’s 3 times and have been underwhelmed every time.

The food was not bad but the service was absolutely TERRIBLE and the place wasn’t even busy. The appetizers we ordered never showed up and there was never an explanation or an apology issued. After we placed our order, our waitress was literally at our table for less than 5 seconds the remainder of dinner. She checked in as we were taking our second to last bite of our food to see how things were going but never broke stride. Never brought 2 items we originally asked for on the side, never had our water refilled, never asked if we wanted another drink and then then allowed us to sit with our empty plates in front of us for 20 mins. Finally, we had to flag down another server to ask our waitress for our check because she was ghost. With so many other restaurants on the island, don’t waste your time.

This is my favorite restaurant at Sea Pines! It is casual. The service is outstanding. The chef takes special care on each meal he sends out. I particularly love the salmon and risotto dish. My boys love the fish and chips and Caesar salad. Be sure to make a reservation. Sometimes it can be quiet and sometimes packed. Be sure to have a mule! I like the Moscow. Save time for a quick dart game and enjoy dining while enjoying the beautiful golf course views! Also, for a little history lesson about the Fraser family who started Sea Pines, take a casual walk around to read the stories under the black and white photos.

Family get together and vacation. The country club is pretty and enticing. The bar looked like a fun atmosphere to have cocktails. The people (both employees and guests) were all very courteous and friendly. The dining service was good. Not spectacular. The food was mediocre at best. I would recommend it but wouldn’t set high expectations.

Ate at Fraser’s on Thursday night. They lost our reservation. After finally being seated we waited 10 minutes before they took our drink order. Floor was covered in debris from previous seating. Again waited a long time before they took dinner order. The guys ordered smoked ribs and brisket- their specialty. Waiter was no where to be found to get the check. Later that night both men were sick with gastrointestinal problems from dinner. Called the restaurant to notify them the next day. Very disappointing!!
We won’t be going back anytime soon!

Honestly, we were underwhelmed. We started with an appetizer of cheese fries which had very little cheese or bacon. It was really just a large order of fries with a few crumbs of bacon and a few shreds of cheese. The ranch dressing tasted odd. It was sweet so my daughter didn’t enjoy her entree salad. The garlic mashed potatoes were sour so not great. The sauces for the pork weren’t great either so we ate the pork dry. It was a disappointing dining experience for us. We sat outside so it was very beautiful with comfortable seating - the only plus to our evening. We chose not to get desserts since the meals were so disappointing.

The location and staff at Fraser’s Tavern are outstanding. This was our third visit and clearly the restaurant is struggling to reach its stride. The issue is the kitchen which easily gets behind. Ninety minutes for a burger is a bit much. Despite the delay, the staff was more than accommodating and responsive. Will give them another shot in the fall.

We were meeting a friend at this spot within Sea Pines Resort. It was a lovely place and we were looking forward to a nice relaxing dinner. Our server pleasantly greeted us and said he’d be back. It took a very long time to even see a menu. The time between arriving, getting a menu and then having our order taken was quite long. Our food finally arrived and it was mediocre at best. I had the vegetable pasta supposedly in a white wine sauce. The pasta can out swimming in a soupy white broth. The dish had absolutely NO taste and even after several attempts with the salt shaker I had no luck getting it to have any flavor. The amount of vegetables was so low but the mushrooms I asked to be left out were still there. My husband’s brisket was not very good either but the pulled pork had a good taste. Then after waiting so long, we felt we were being rushed out, never being asked if we’d like coffee or dessert. A very disappointing night at an otherwise very nice resort.

When server reviewed specials he did not mention items on the printed menu not available. My wife ordered meatloaf and was told they ran out the night before and had none! Then I ordered the pork chop and was told it’s no longer being offered! Then why is it on the menu??? Instead I ordered the ribeye special, which was cooked to the proper tempers, but it was NOT a tender cut of steak. Very tough for a ribeye. Then I asked for steak sauce and was told they only had catsup and BBQ sauce......no prepared sauces and not even items such as A-1 or Heinz 57! What a joke. The server and food runner made it sound like the chef was in charge instead of a front of house manager that cared about what the customer wants.

They need to work out the kinks. So much was forgotten. And overlooked - didn’t put checker in quesadillas, didn’t put lemon sauce on avocado sandwich - served it dry and told us they were all out. Food took a really long time and our server seemed to disappear for long stretches. Beautiful building but I would not go back or recommend it.
