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.

Vacation dining - my husband had the grouper stuffed with crab and I ordered the scallops - his was way better - yum!
Except for the three “fragrant” golfers sitting near us (not your fault), it was a nice final meal topping off another great week in Hilton Head.

From time entree is ordered & delivered to the table is way too long on a slow night.
Liquor & wine prices are very high compared to many restaurants outside of Sea Pines. Paying $13.50 for a glass of white wine is high when you can buy a bottle at the super market for $7.50.
FOOD IS GOOD.

the restaurant is very nice with large windows and lots of outdoor, elevated porch sitting, but it's a golf club restaurant and not fine dining. Food was average, maybe not good. staff was very helpful and attentive. It's ok for lunch, but not a designation dinner.

Yes, but I would not recommend the smoked dishes - ambiance is great. Food wasn't hot and my dish (smoked brisket) was barely edible. We will go back to the simple bar food on our next visit. Locale is beautiful but pricey menu should have a "better taste."

Fraser's Tavern is not your ordinary Country Club dining experience. Cuisine is excellent and ambiance is more like an upscale steakhouse than a pub. Lamb chops were the best I have had in a very long time.

We ordered 2 appetizers, the chicken wings were the best we had ever had! The entree’s we all ordered were delicious as well. I’d highly recommend Fraser’s for a causal night out!

It seems that Sea Pines Group has not yet figured out how to serve decent food. We've tried the former Live Oak, Fraser's, Coast, and Links. None are places we would recommend to anyone or return to if the quality of food, freshness, and presentation don't greatly improve. You can get a decent burger, but certainly nothing to satisfy discriminating palates.
