Great food. Highly recommend early dining specials-5:15-5:45. Complimentary drink, including wine/ soup or salad, entree. Super prices.

We really enjoyed our appetizers ans salads. The seared foils gras was WONDERFUL, but the bread was far too thickly cut--like Texas Toast! Thin toast points would have been far more appropriate for such delicious delicate flavors!.

The sea bass entree was delicious but the soy glazed udon was very salty. The barramundi needed more seasoning and/or a sauce--a disappointing choice.

That said, the service was terrific and we very much enjoyed being there, even if we stick to the appetizers and salads next time.

The thanksgiving 4 course meal was out of this world great! Probably the best meal we have had at Red Fish and that is saying a lot as we have dined there many times. The selections offered were perfect...the crab cakes were the best we've ever eaten and the prime rib was perfectly cooked, juicy, tender and succulent! The apple crisp dessert was simply sinful! Great job as always and so nice to have such a wonderful meal on Thanksgiving evening!

We were at Red Fish for Thanksgiving dinner. It was excellent. There was so much food we took home half and had it for dinner the next night. I had the salmon, it was perfect. The pecan pie was really good, couldn’t figure out how it could be so good without being overly sweet like most pecan pies. Decided I never have to cook Thanksgiving dinner again!

Had Thanksgiving dinner. Four courses with choices. Appetizer mushroom puff pastry excellent. Oysters boring. Second course salad good, crab corn soup excellent. Main course turkey and fixings were dry and boring. Desert very good. Our waitress Nicole was awesome. All in all an average experience. Sorry

Red Fish has always been my favorite vacation restaurant, usually going 2-4 times during a 2-week vacation a few times each year. I had a horrible experience recently. First, the wait staff and kitchen noise is LOUD when I have an early reservation and few diners are present. There are very FEW veggie options. The prices are high. I ordered fried oysters (two appetizers) for my entree and requested they be lightly battered and fried; they arrived very greasy with NO oyster taste. The accompanying slay was a waste. The carrot cake (which I look forward to for months!) was quite small (a few bites). The service is good. I will NEVER return again; an expensive meal that I should have sent back. Shame on you Red Fish. A major disappointment.

Took visiting friends to Redfish for lunch. We were so happy to have made that our destination. We sat in a corner of the wine "cellar" that was just perfect. Our server, Jennifer, was professional and very attentive considering she was also mixing drinks. She was quite delightful and added to our overall great experience. Portions were perfect and every meal was delicious--Caesar Salad with Chicken, Cubano Sandwich, and the Seafood Roll. Looking forward to our return.

 (Chicago)·Dined on November 12, 2017

We are visiting Hilton Head Island and were looking for a nice seafood restaurant for a birthday dinner. We were not disappointed. Excellent wine list, but one thing that was disappointing to this non wine-drinker was lack of a cocktail list. The waitress replied they have a fully stocked bar, but when asked if they had coconut rum, she hesitated and wasn't sure. This diner prefers a craft cocktail list to stir the imagination a bit, rather than come up with something ordinary on my own.
Two of us had salads, which were large in portion. I had the goat cheese salad, which came with roasted beets, candied pecans and a citrus vinaigrette. Excellent. My husband had the wedge. For entree's both my husband and I had the chilean sea bass, with a soy glaze and wasabi cream sauce on top. Excellent fish. however, the udon noodles which the fish sat on top of, were not hot enough and cooled rapidly from the first bite for both of us, even though we were warned that the plates were hot. One of our companions had the shrimp and grits, while the other had the special- a wreck fish. All were pleased with our choices. We visited the Red Fish on Hilton Head, but there is a second location near Bluffton.
Would highly recommend this spot.

Despite the restaurant being almost totally empty, we were seated all next to each other. No privacy. Food was very good but portions were small for the price charged. 4 scallops w/ lobster Mac & cheese was $39.

We planned on eating here on the first night of our vacation to celebrate our recent wedding. They have an outstanding wine selection and allow you to buy a bottle in the retail area and then drink it at dinner with an up charge. There were great options for both of us- carnivore and vegetarian. Service was great and our server very knowledgeable. We plan on making this an annual tradition.

We were a party of 8 for the early evening menu on a Saturday. The staff was most accommodating and pleasant. Service was prompt and correct in my judgement. This was only my second visit to Red Fish, but each visit satisfied my expectations and I would certainly recommend Red Fish Hilton Head to my friends.

My husband & I enjoy Red Gish Grille when we come to Hilton Head. This time the steak my husband ordered was not up to par. It came in two pieces and was just not the same as on previous visits.
We mentioned it to our server and she called the manager over. He was apologetic And insisted on removing it from our bill.
The service and ambiance are always wonderful and we will come back hoping this was a one time problem.
