Steakhouse
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.

    My wife and I had probably the best meal we have ever had on Hilton Head Island in the past 8 years we have been coming here. I got the 14oz Delmonico Ribeye and my wife got the filet. Both amazing. Desert was a very tasty piece of NY Style Cheesecake. Service was pretty good. Would definitely come back again!

    It always is one of our favorite places to dine on Hilton Head. It has an amazing menu, where everyone had difficulty deciding which item to get. All choices were delicious with the need to return another night and try something else. Service was great with wonderful choices of cocktails as well. Only wish we could eat more to sample their deserts.

    We had a a delicious dinner. However server was missing in action quite a bit. I wanted an after dinner drink but since she was nowhere to be found I went to the bar and got it myself. I get it the understaff situation but still it was noticeable. My dinner companion even said at one point it’s a good thing we weren’t starving because it took long to order and for food to come out.

    The food was outstanding, as usual. The service was slower than what we have experienced here in the past. We waited 15 minutes on drinks from the bar to arrive. We tried to catch our server whenever we saw her. Aside from the slow service, was a wonderful dinner.

    It took us 25 minutes to get a glass of water & get waited and on; terrible start. We each ordered a cup of lobster bisque & only 1 cup arrived. After being there for over an hour, our entrees arrived. The steak, ordered medium rare, arrived medium well. No one came to ask how it was or bring even a steak knife. I had to go inside again to get attention. They fixed it, we left, won’t ever ho back!

    We were there for anniversary dinner. The cheapest item on desert menu was on the house with a nice congrats card where we were seated. The ambiance was sophisticated but the front hall had strong food smell, luckily we were at back. Our waitress Chase did everything to make sure we had a good experience. Only thing she could not change was the very disappointing taste of the most expensive entree, rack of lamb. This was not lamb as it stunk and had so much fat (halfway thru bone) more like a sheep. 2 bites from two bones and couldn’t eat the rest. Do not spend $52 on this meal there are other choices half the price that taste much better. Clearly not a specialty with Mediterranean standards. I did not want the item to be taken off bill but made aware of my displeasure. There was no discount or no one coming to apologize for the experience. It was 1/3rd of our bill for a party of 3 with bubbly and wine glasses (our 5 yr old probably consuming $15 at most). The whole meal for $172 with tax was simply not worth it. I tipped cash pleased with service. Do recommend the restaurant but not the lamb. Steak carpaccio and braised salmon were very tasty.

    Everything was fine, however since it was raining we wanted to eat inside. It was very, very cold inside so he had to move to an outside table. It was much better there as the plastic sheltered us from the rain. I wish they would make it a little warmer inside.

    Food and service was excellent. There were issues as they wanted to seat us next to the restrooms at the smallest table even though there were plenty of tables available. The manager took over and was very accommodating. Otherwise excellent dining experience.

    Sat outside, was very comfortable with the fans blowing. Sarah was an excellent waitress. WG salad is delicious enough for 2 people to split. My special, pasta with shrimp, was bland. My friends short rib was excellent.

    The restaurant atmosphere was very good and mostly quiet, which was good. The food was good for the three of four persons. However, our waiter was essentially inattentive and never checked to see how our dinners had come out which was unfortunate since the steak that one of our diners ordered medium was actually entirely too rare for her to eat. No one ever asked about it. When the bill came and we called it to the waiter's attention, he said "you are right, that's pretty rare" and then left. Never asked if she wanted to have it cooked appropriately or take it home. She finally did get someone's attention to put it in a to go box but it was too late.

    The level of service at Wise Guys has declined substantially. There were groups of employees just standing around chatting instead of taking care of their customers. Entrees came out well before salads were finished, so we had to push the salad plates out of the way. The salad plates sat on the table throughout the meal. Water glasses were not refilled.
