    It was thanksgiving and some of items were not available. No oysters. Appetizers were cold crab cake and mushroom pastry. Dessert the pies were slightly frozen. Great coffee, bottle of wine delightful. Our server Peteie was attentive and well versed about menu, beers etc.

    Have always enjoyed Red Fish and have been going there for Thanksgiving for many years but this year was not quite as good. Service was a low start, then speeded up and before we could finish one course the other one showed up. The food was good but not quite as good in past, soup was cool, entre was also on the cool side. Will have to rethink going back next year

    We went to Redfish for Thanksgiving dinner. We were pleased with the menu selections, and the food was very good. The restaurant was packed so service was a little spotty but I really they did a wonderful job in managing such a large crowd. A good time was had by all!

    We enjoyed the Thanksgiving Day menu... a delicious four course meal for $60 each. Every course was fantastic and I loved the pecan tart. The service was top notch on an especially busy evening. It was such a lovely surprise to have this great option on HHI and not worry about cooking and cleaning.

    We were staying at a resort on the island for Thanksgiving. I had researched restaurants serving Thanksgiving dinner and made a reservation. We arrived a bit early and they seated us promptly. The service was amazing and the amount of food was so generous. On top of that, everything was prepared to delicious perfection. Those of us who wanted a traditional turkey dinner were able to have that l, but there were options of prime rib and salmon as well. There were 3 in our party and we each ordered something different so we tried all 3 and all were excellent! Service was friendly and top notch. Our four courses were spaced perfectly to give us a relaxing and enjoyable dinner! We highly recommend Red Fish to anyone visiting HHI

    We were visiting Hilton Head and decided to have an early dinner at Red Fish on their deck (we don't eat inside at restaurants - we're cautious with what with flu and covid so prevalent everywhere). We were so very impressed with the restaurant; The tables outside had warm heaters, they had white table cloths, and the tables were spaced well apart - which made us feel safe and comfortable. The food was fabulous, we were well taken care of in every way. We would absolutely go back. It's really lovely to be able to eat outside comfortably in the winter and feel like it's an elegant and special meal. Restaurants that offer outside dining and do it well, like Red Fish are real treasures.

    Our table was terrible. We were between a wall of wine and a wall and it felt very claustrophobic! Our waitress came by mumble something and disappeared. We sat there for twenty minutes before she came back and said oh ya you have the bad table. She barely checked on us after we got our food. Didn’t ask if we wanted anything else just dropped the bill off. She then disappeared again! It was another 17 minutes til she came back again. The food was good. I have been here several times and this was not the experience I have had in the past.

    Service was great. Attentive, great personality, explained things in detail. The owner even came by and talked to us for a few minutes. Very nice guy. Salad was very fresh, tasty. Meals cooked properly. Burger was ridiculous in a good way. Key lime pie and carrot cake were on point! Over all it was the best meal we had in HHI.

    We took two other couples with us on our first time to Red Fish. We actually thought we had made reservations at another restaurant with a similar name. It turned out to be a great mistake. We liked the atmosphere somewhat rustic with open rooms and plenty of space between tables, each meal was terrific, wonderful pianist, and very good and personable wait staff. We were lucky enough to also hear a bit of the owner’s talent on the piano also, beautiful. I think this is our new favorite restaurant on the island.

    Our first trip back to Red Fish since isolation of COVID. Our adult Grandaughter visiting us. We had to request to be reseated as they placed us behind the stand of wine bottles. Only one other table there and no vision of others. Wait staff very accommodating. Food very good but actual selection seemed narrow. We have loved RF and will try again
