This is just a fantastic restaurant. Their seafood is amazing. They have a lobster macaroni and cheese that is just delicious. We always have dessert when we go there because they have such a great selection of desserts, and they are all good. The service is excellent and they also have a fantastic selection of wine. Red Fish is one our favorite restaurants for seafood on the island.

The best meal I have had in a restaurant in a long time. Recommend the amazing Chilean Sea Bass and the shrimp egg rolls. The servers were attentive, charming, and helpful without being intrusive. A perfect evening.

I am a returning customer to your establishment and found the food and service to be more uneven this time. While some of the dishes were delicious, others were not that great. One member of our party ordered the lump crab cakes special and the crab cakes, while light, tasted like breading. The Great American Restaurant company in Northern Virginia makes an outstanding crab cake that is full of lump crab with very little breading, so much so that crab cakes are seldom ordered elsewhere. The coleslaw was so bland that any vinaigrette or spices on it were not discernible at all. However, the grouper entrees, black been soup, and the sirloin burger were quite good.

Service was good although the bread for the table arrived mere minutes before the entrees and when refilling a glass with water, some dark item fell out and into the guest’s glass. Having ordered a couple of bottles of wine and not finishing the second, we requested to take the bottle home. We were told we could and the server would return with a bag for it. When this did not happen after waiting a while, we left without it.

Everything was going good till a group of sixteen were seated next to our table. Our sever happened to be assigned to serve them and then we didn’t see her for the rest of the night .. we had to asked someone to get out bill for us. We we never offered another cocktail after our first order. Food was very good.

This was our second time dining at red fish Hilton head island. The food was consistently good. The service was sporadic. Had to ask for bread three times and waited for waitress over and over. Very understaffed and service ruined our meal.

My wife and I had an enjoyable meal at Red Fish. The atmosphere was great as was the food and service, both the waitress and the person bringing the food from the kitchen to the table. I had the oyster special as an appetizer which was great followed by the Chilean Sea Bass a specialty of Red Fish. My wife had Red Snapper the daily special. We had a great evening. Thank you, Red Fish we will be back, when we next visit HHI.

I sent back the vegetable strudel. It was full of too much Borson cheese and the Phyllo crust was not crispy. It was doused with the so-called “red pepper jam” that tasted like ketchup. The whole effect was unpleasant. The waitress cheerfully replaced it with the special - tilefish. Overcooked and overpowered by other ingredients. My husband had the blackened grouper, and it was rubbery. It is a beautiful restaurant, and the service was good. The high priced meals did meet expectations.

We so love going to Redfish on Wednesdays to eat great food and hear the John Brackett group. His music is so fun--we've been enjoying it for years. My crab cakes and sweet potato fries were very good. My husband was thrilled to see the rib eye back on the menu and really enjoyed it. We will go back in a couple of weeks.

We had the Asian lettuce wraps appetizer that was very small and overpriced. Entrees were very good. Service was a little slow, but very knowledgeable and polite—may be understaffed due to COVID.

Very noisy which impaired enjoyment of music. If people want to drink and guffaw at overloud comments at their table, they should NOT be placed in the wine cellar. It’s not only rude behavior to the musicians, but also a real violation of the diners who chose to come for dinner and music expectations.

We try to visit Red Fish whenever we travel to HHI and again this year we were not disappointed. Service was prompt & attentive throughout the meal on the outside deck. Everyother time here we enjoy eating surrounded by the great wines inside but the weather was perfect this evening for outside dining. We started with delicious cocktails and the delectable appetizer special of fried green tomatoes. My wife and I also stuck with the entree specials of lump crab cakes and snapper for the evening. Both were perfect. With dinner we had a bottle of very reasonably priced wine from the huge selection. Lastly we split the amazing key lime pie dessert. Red Fish is definitely on our list of restaurants to revisit next time in HHI.

I had the scallops plate with the lobster/cheese macaroni & asparagus. The sweetest scallops ever, The entire dish was so fresh. Just delicious!
My two guests both had the Scottish salmon and raved about it, delicious and filling.
And don't forget the warm bread...I couldn't get enough. Wait staff was terrific.
This place has been our favorite on HHI for many years and we have NEVER even had a mediocre meal. Don't miss going here.

The food was good. Wines on the menu are sub par, so it’s worth buying off the shelf and paying the corkage fee. Service was friendly but very hurried giving the impression they really were not interested.

Usually one if our favorites in the island. But wife's crab cakes were more filling than crab, and my grouper didn't have much visual appeal or taste. Crab dip and lobster Mac & cheese good as usual. Overall, disappointing for the price.
