WiseGuys features several small plates including pizzettas, sliders, nightly specialty items, not to mention our steaks! Highlights of the menu include local seafood creations and hand selected premium steaks from sterling silver. Our steaks are aged a minimum of 28 days for maximum flavor and tenderness in every bite. An aged steak is not just an aged steak at wiseguys; it is a wiseguys prepared steak, and is truly the best on hilton head. In fact, WiseGuys has such a strong menu and following that we were voted "Best Martini Bar," "Best Steak," and "Best Tapas" in recent years. Unique to the island for its contemporary and sophisticated feel, WiseGuys has quickly become Hilton Head Island's see-and-be-seen dining hot spot. Our luxurious dining room, accompanied by a modern bar and lounge, will transport you away from the island and into an urban restaurant atmosphere. The amazing ambiance is second-to-none on Hilton Head. WiseGuys features an expansive bar, a cosmopolitan lounge, a semi-private dining room with an award-winning wine list of over 200 bottles. We also have a Wine Keeper system, which ensures every glass of wine is as good as the first. You are invited through the stainless-steel doors into our plush and friendly environment where you can savor our steaks, sample the wines, and share our passion.

    Wise Guys must be under new management - the service is not as expected from this very fine resturant. Reservations were difficult when they moved away from Open Table, I understand the difficulties in making such a change but staff seemed out of touch with the process.

    Average food quality at higher prices in an atmosphere more like an assisted living dining room. Sorry, but that’s our opinion and nothing against the elderly. We’ll all be there one day, but the ambience was not good to us as annual HHI vacationers looking for something “different”.

    My wife and I went there for my birthday celebration and the meals were pretty good. She had the house salad, and the tenderloin sliders, which is on the appetizer menu, and she thoroughly enjoyed both. I on the other hand has a wedge, lettuce, salad, and prime rib. The wedge salad was very good and I enjoyed it. The prime rib I had I ordered medium rare, and it was raw, barely warm. I could not finish the piece of meat. They adjusted my bill by taking off a few dollars on my prime rib, but hardly worth the effort. I know that this restaurant has a good reputation and I will probably go back to try something else, but this was certainly a disappointing meal. If I had my choice, I would probably to Frankie bones which I know is also another SERG restaurant, but it is very consistent and I have never had a bad meal there. It’s not that difficult to make sure that a piece of prime rib is cooked medium, rare, and not raw.

    Looking for a good steak and found it at Wise guys. Daughter had the filet and husband had the NY strip. Both said it was excellent. I had the salmon with rice. Salmon was done perfectly. Rice mixture was very good, just a bit salty for my taste. Excellent service from Michael our waiter. Will definitely be back soon

    Our food was not up to the usual excellent. The duck was fatty and stringy, and the small plates were not up to par.. used to love the duck egg rolls, but not hot and bland. Our server,m Codera, was excellent! Fun, perfect timing and great service!

    My husband and I wanted to go somewhere nice to celebrate a birthday. Wise Guys was recommended by friends and I can see why. My husband and I both had the French onion soup which was terrific. It had a wonderful rich broth and believe it may have had a bit of a kick - loved it. I had beef short ribs which were cooked to perfection. My husband had the scallops and mushroom risotto which he throughly enjoyed. Had bread pudding and chocolate torte (birthday treat) for dessert. Both were really good. Wait staff were all excellent - very attentive, polite and efficient. That combined with great food and ambience will definitely have us coming back.

    The fried fish on the early menu was cod. It had the consistency of cotton. The fried shrimp were greasy. Both shrimp and fish were over seasoned as well as the sauces served with them. I have had much better food here. Not sure what went wrong.

    Emma, the waitress was pleasant, knowledgeable and attentive. Husband ordered the Caesar salad with extra anchovies, but not as good as Michael Anthony’s. His entree of salmon he liked, and it was a choice “lighter” choice…which is what he was looking for. I had the greens salad, as I wanted something not calorie heavy in that area of my meal. I wanted to instead focus on the smaller cut of prime rib. It was good…added the verts as a side…but someone is a bit heavy handed with the salt in the meat’s rub crust. Perhaps back off a bit on the salt as the Au jus is salty enough. The wine selections we made(with Emma’s help for the husband’s choice) were good and worked. The bread pudding portion was a good choice to share. Lounge area(which is the original lounge side before remodel) is good in that it’s off the traffic path but visible of all activity. Works well for couples/small groups. Thanks for the work!
