A restaurant we always enjoy with fresh, nicely herbed and spiced dishes. Very fun array of dishes. The tuna tartare never fails to please. The waitstaff was a little harried on this visit, but they are usually very attentive.

Great food. WONDERFUL server. Unfortunately it was cold and rainy, so every time the door opened, we got a blast of frigid air. And we were very early - we should have been given a more “protected” table.

I had their prime rib special, as did one of our friends, and it was meh. The scallop appetizer was excellent, as was the beef burgundy, Brussels sprouts, and loaded baked potato, and the blueberry lemonade cocktail. The meatloaf taste was good, although it was more of a hash - bad texture. I wish they would have informed us of that prior to ordering.

A new favorite! This is one of those places that locals tend to not want to tell tourists about because it's too good to share-- however it's also too good to NOT share. A cozy atmosphere and well thought out menu. Will definitely be coming back as much as we can!

The food was fantastic - prime rib, chicken & waffles and best of all peach cobbler with homemade ice cream. It was a little strange to have fall decorations up on New Year's Eve. That took away from the ambiance.

We had a great dinner and service. My salmon special was delicious and my date’s prime rib was as tender and thick as a filet. Need to try this restaurant!!!

Stop for an excellent dinner at Hogshead before crossing the bridge into Hilton Head. So good that we stopped for dinner a week later on our way out. Truffled Honey Salmon just the best, Mushroom pasta, meatloaf, ribs all excellent, Warm Brie & Pear Jezebel and Ahi Tuna Steak Tartare apps were great too!

If your staying on the island, this restaurant is further out. The majority of the food we sampled was really good. Two people ordered 'well done' burgers and they came out medium. Fried green tomatoes were incredible. I would eat here again but only if I'm driving past it. HHI has so many incredible restaurants closer to our resort.

lovely setting and atmosphere - like a local pub with great food... obviously a trained chief ( I am assuming!) who is putting a lot of thoughts into every detail of the food preparation including the plate presentation. I loved everything I had starting with the well-balanced cocktail!

A wonderful local restaurant. Great vibe and friendly, hardworking owners. Food is always top-notch. Terrific oyster small plate. Great burger with onion strings. My favorite scallop entree with corn risotto. Tucked away in Moss Creek Village, it is worth the trip.

The hush puppies had a very good review so we ordered them I thought they were ok tasting and they were very dry. We had BBQ and Salmon both dishes were good but not outstanding. Would not go there again would try someplace else.

Ordered salmon on a Caesar salad. Salmon cooked perfect! Chicken cacciatore was said to be delicious as well. Service excellent and we like that they have daily specials as well as small plates and larger entrees. You will not go wrong dining at Hogshead!
They also have outdoor covered dining. A bit humid for us but social distanced tables and a good number supporting privately owned local restaurant.
