Wonderful selection of wines by the glass. The service from the waitress felt rushed and lacked compassion. The hostess and others were more welcoming. The food was delicious and has a nice presentation. Overall, we would go back again.

Server was not up to their usual standards. Stood behind the bar talking with other employees, playing on phone or otherwise avoiding serving the customers. Very disappointing experience.

Maitre de, a young woman, was indifferent to the point of surliness. We were seated at a table located exactly at a kitchen exit - complained and were reseated in a spot so poorly lit that we were obliged to read the menu using iphone light apps. Our waitress, Nicole, performed adequately. Unhapilly, the dishes were just mediocrities - and greatly overpriced.

The Red Fish is a great restaurant with a very nice ambiance. The early dining option is an incredible value. We had their steaks and the tilapia option. The steaks were good, but not the most flavourful I've ever had. The fish was very good. At an earlier visit I had the salmon which was very good.

Tuesday nights at Red Fish is a great deal. Lavon Stevens is on the piano which makes any night great. Plus they offer 50% off bottles of wine along with their excellent menu. Check it out before the summer crowds come back!

We enjoyed the early bird special! What a treat. Great options and some excellent add ones for a few dollars more. The salad was substantial and fresh! In my mind, ties for best shrimp and grits with one other island restaurant. The cilantro dip with bread was a treat. And while I dipped my spoon into our shared bread pudding, I could tell it was beyond delicious. Another plus: an excellent wine choice was part of this early bird option. Our server was helpful and the receptionist was warm and welcoming when we arrived and gracious and grateful when we left. Definitely a star among the island’s restaurants!!

The food as always, was delicious, and delivered HOT!

The hostess must not use the expression”you guys”, when seating guests.

Our waitress was very efficient and friendly without outwardly appearing rushed and borderline machine-like, an experience we had elsewhere earlier in the week.

We will be back next week.

As usual, the food was delicious. We started with the crab dip and it didn’t disappoint! My husband had the scallops and they were cooked perfectly. My dinner choice was the shrimp and grits. So many shrimp, my husband had to finish them for me. We were too full to eat dessert, but we know their desserts are delicious; so we took home a slice of carrot cake for the next night. The cake is a hit, especially if you microwave for 20 seconds. Yum. Our only disappointment was in the service. We had to ask for our bread and the waitress rarely stopped by to check on us. My husband wanted to order a glass of wine and he told her; she left to never come back, so no wine! We’ve eaten here for years and brought friends, this was our first experience with a bad waitress. The food though, was exceptional!

In the past we had always dined at the Red Fish in Bluffton. The Hilton Head restaurant was not as good as the Bluffton which is now closed. I had the tomato bisque and the Scottish Salmon. Both were okay but nothing special to travel from Bluffton to Hilton Head. The other 3 in our group had a similar recommendation.

We were seated at a wonderful table in the corner of the bar area surrounded by wine bottles . Three of us had the early bird and one had a meal from the regular menu. Food was very delicious but could have been warmer especially the potatoes. We come here every year from upstate ny and love it. Thank you for your kindness and your excellent service

This restaurant was very busy with groups the night we had reservations and it was fairly noisey. However, the wait staff was very diligent even though the service was a little slow due to the large number of groups The fish entrees were exceptional while the steak was not wonderful. Desserts were lovely. Will visit again.

Food was mediocre at best. First the food came out cold, then burnt. I was offered a replacement by the staff but at that point my companion was halfway through her meal, so I declined. With so many dining options on the Island, I would not go back.

The Red Fish is always great. Consistently great food and service. They know exactly how to pace the delivery of your next course. Casual dining at its finest as well as an extensive wine offering. A must for all visitors to Hilton Head. Our waitress Fran was FRANTASTIC!! She got everything right, and we weren’t easy! Jeff does a great job managing this restaurant. We love the Red Fish.

Red Fish has been on our rotation for several years. It has slipped lately. Granted 2/14 is a buy night to visit any restaurant, but we hurried to arrive on time for our 7:30 reservation. Our table wasn't ready and there were three groups ahead of us (I presume all had reservations as well) waiting for tables to open so they could be seated. Once seated, near where servers called out to the kitchen that they had an order coming in, nothing about the food or services was remarkable. It was a disappointing evening. Red Fish will certainly not be a special occasion restaurant again. There are too many other good ones in the area.

I’m sure this was done due to the large crowd expected tonight - the Cesar Salad had a nice flavor but the lettuce was not cold & crisp - Suspect the lettuce had been tossed earlier and left out.

Scallops & Sea Bass were awesome.
