This is our favorite restaurant on Hilton Head. We went twice in a week and our meals were superb. The salmon is consistently excellent. My husband had the barramundi that also was very good. The wait staff are great and the atmosphere delightful and relaxing.

Excellent specials the night we were there. Crab cake was just okay- not enough lump or jumbo lump meat.

Waitress was very friendly. Key lime pie was delicious.

Red Fish is a must when we are in Hilton Head. The food is always delicious with appealing presentation,
a very good wine selection, and knowledgable staff.

Trying a new place for us in HHI. The service and ambiance was good but the food was substandard. My wife is on a Keto diet and order a bunless burger. The meat tasted foul and was inedible. I ordered the pork steak which was so tough and full of fat it also was inedible. The waitress was apologetic and removed the entrees from our bill which was much appreciated. Needless to say we won’t have a repeat visit to Redfin and will go back to our favorites on our annual trip to HHI.

The food was good, that would be the only reason I return. The servers were pretentious and not tolerable of the fact that we had children with us. The specific server for our table did her job, and that’s it. There was nothing extra and an overall lack of friendliness from the entire restaurant team. The other service team members were annoyed with us for bringing children into the restaurant. Everyone else dining in the restaurant was over the age of 65 at the time that we dined, so I assume that is the clientele they desire to have in their establishment.

The wine selection was very nice. We really liked the 1000 bottles to pick from if needed but the selection on the menu was fine. My shrimp and scallops pasta dish was dry. When I received more sauce the meal was cold. My wife had finished her meal before I was served again. No concessions on the bill until I complained. Not a good experience overall.

Varied menu, huge, excellent wine list, large, excellent cocktails. Cuban black bean soup was outstanding. Spring rolls, caesar salads, brick chicken, latin ribs, sea bass and shrimp fettuccine primavera were all well prepared and delicious. Waiter was attentive without being overbearing. Group ate early (6:00pm) and restaurant was quiet. A really wonderful dinner in a nice setting.

Red Fish is one of the finest restaurants in Hilton Head, especially its early bird, which includes a complimentary glass of wine and a nice variety of salads and entrees. We've been here before, and we can easily look forward to the next time.

Because I was very pleased with the food I really can't complain about much. But the service was weak. Our waitress only came around minimally. We were never asked if we wanted a second drink and our water glasses were not refilled once. It was a very nice restaurant. The ambiance was great. I really enjoyed my meal. I got the Red Fish Scallops. It came with this shrimp and lobster mac and cheese that had crunchy prosciutto topping. Was so good! And the Asian Lettuce Wrap appetizer was amazing too. My friend got the Cajun Shrimp & Lobster burger and he wasn't crazy about it. But everyone else loved their meals.

My husband and I have eaten at Red Fish, every time we visit HHI. The wine selection is amazing and so is the service. My favorite meal has always been the sea bass with wasabi drizzle on top of udon noodles. It never disappoints!!

The meals are outstanding and always prepared exceptionally. Ordered the crab cakes and the shrimp and scallop primavera ... both very good. Server suggested a great choice for a chardonnay. Experience is always good.

An excellent experience
The sea bass was fantastic,
And the shrimp & grits and lobster max & cheese were also very good
The restaurant was not crowded at all — easy to get reservation and noise level was perfect

We thought that the dining was great our server was amazing not only did she give us excellent attention she was able to gather other information and places for us to go to for the rest of our stay. She was thoughtful and kind. Sorry, I don’t remember her name. Will definitely recommend to others that come to Hilton Head to eat at Red Fish. 😎

The food here is always very good, and the ambiance is nice, too. The service was weak. Our waitress was going through the motions very mechanically and was not at all engaged in making us feel welcome and valued. The couple we met there called the restaurant to notify them (and us) that they were running a little late, and asked that we be advised of their delay. The message was not relayed.

Fran was Frantastic. Loved picking our own wine from vast selection with low corkage fee. Small order entry error more than very properly covered off on by management and waitress. Definitely will be back.

Our waitress was fantastic! The owner even stopped at our table to say hello and ask how everything was. The only thing that I would have to say negative is that my Lobster mac n cheese app (that was my main course) came out cold, when reheated:( it tasted good but I almost broke a tooth on the lobster shells. I never complain but it wasn’t just one piece of shell it was in every other bite to the Lou t that I didn’t eat my meal. It was removed off the bill because it was cold. I told the nice waitress so others wouldn’t continue eating it with that many lobster shells in it. Other than that the goat cheese salad was great, our sons spaghetti came out warm and not too hot which was great, most of the time the kids meal takes forever to cool down. We will try again as mostly everything was good.

We went for the early bird and it was excellent! Two of us had the Barramundi (sea bass), my wife the vegetarian platter and the other had Latin ribs. All was very good. Soup was seafood -)
