    A wonderful ambience - we both had one of the seafood specials on the menu which were both excellent- service was prompt and the ambience was really great. We enjoyed live music : piano player: and a breeze coming in from the open door. The black bean soup appetizer was one of the best we’ve had!

    We come to Hilton Head several times a year and this is always one of our favorite spots. We never miss an opportunity to have an excellent meal with good wine and professional service at redfish. One of the extra perks is the lovely outside seating area. It is perfect for any time of year with shade in the summer and portable heaters available in the winter months. This is probably one of the best restaurants on the island.

    Started with the calamari. Very large portion and very tasty. The wedge salad was good. Sea bass was tasty. Ended with the carrot cake thinking that I would not be able to eat it all but it was so good I could not stop. Service was very good. Nice selection of wine. I particularly enjoyed the live music. Cranford Hollow made the evening perfect- love his music.

    Filet steaks did not appear to be filets. They were grainy and fibrous. They were not cooked to requested temp. Both were overdone - one order was for Medium and was well-done. The second order was for medium-rare and was medium to well-done. The side of broccoli was seasoned well and best part of the meal. The potatoes were room temperature and dry. We have been going to Red Fish for 20 years and have always enjoyed the evenings. The service was very good. We have recommended Red Fish to friends visiting Hilton Head. This has changed this recommendation.

    Great dinner at Red Fish. We are from the Restaurant Week menu and I actually diverted from my usual sea bass. I had the salmon and my partner had the flounder. Both were excellent. The crab and corn chowder was amazing. The piano music was a fabulous addition and the service provided by Lacey was great (but it always is!).

    Experience in a Saturday night: good food and service but the sound level was too high to enjoy the meal. Don’t need to add music, although the entertainer was fine. But live music just made everyone shout to the point we couldn’t ever hear the person across the table. Will only come during the week when it’s not so crowded and noisy.

    Sea Bass very good but the accompanying udon noodles were extremely salty and inedible. Others had scallops and flounder that were good but they said nothing special. Very noisy atmosphere and difficult to hear conversion at our table unless we shouted at one another. Good overall but not our choice for a quiet, relaxing dinner.

    Staff was very attentive and ambience was nice except paper covering the linen tablecloths was a distraction and needed crayons. Food was surprisingly disappointing with lovely piece of salmon spoiled by very salty glaze which permeated each bite. The 16 ounce rib eye was also a disappointment, looking more like a strip steak. It was cooked to perfection but the steak knife was no match for its toughness.

    Another great meal! This was our second visit to Red Fish, and was truly delightful. It was my first time eating grits, and the cheesy grits with shrimp and kale were amazing! The shrimp was prepared to perfection. The bread and salad were great also! For dessert we split a key lime pie slice, and it did not dissapoint! We enjoyed the jazz and blues music from a nearby room - a great night!

    The Restaurant Week menu was varied with interesting choices. The server was flexible on the dessert as I'm gluten-free and dairy-free. It was loud, voices seemed to carry from other tables and the live music only made it more difficult to hear.
