WiseGuys Steak & Lounge
Their reviews were good, so we saved this for our last night of our stay in Hilton Head. We had exceptional meals at all other places during our visit, we expected no less at Wise Guys. I had been savouring a steak meal after a week of fish and Italian food. Bulletin to Wise Guys: if I If you are a steak house, you really need to make sure that the steak meets expectations. Unfortunately, they failed in this critical regard. It was sold as a special cut, only served a few times a year, but it it arrived cold, and tough. Flavour was off (I eat a lot of steaks). Vegetables were not good. Disappointing. The decor is old and tired, they badly need a renovation. Overpriced for the experience. It takes a lot for me to write a bad review, but this place needs a redo, and an upgrade to the kitchen staff. We will not go back.
Excellent food, service and a great dining experience. Will definitely be back!
Rachel, our server was great. However the kitchen was not. Waited very long for first course of three and then bam everything came out at once. Soup, salad and over done steaks. We are very forgiving patrons but when we need to rearrange the table so we can finish the first course while our second and third course chill our patience ran thin.
We love wise guys ambience is great and food fantastic it's always a treat going there.
Wise Guys is one of our favorites at Hilton Head Is. I had the WG Salad and Delmonico Ribeye. The steak was great and our server (Rachel) was very attentive.
I just LOVE wise guys! The food is amazing and the service is absolutely the best. Cecelia was our server, and she made great recommendations and could answer all of our questions regarding allergies and menu options in general.
We celebrated my sister’s birthday, and they treated her wonderfully.
We come back to WiseGuys every time we come to Hilton Head.
Wise Guys is two great restaurants to us. One is a small plates and tapas style “can’t make up my mind” restaurant while the other is a great Steak snd Seafood restaurant. You can’t go wrong either way! Best bar in town, best bartenders, shout out to Ron and Chris, who can make anything y’all throw at them. The go to? Defauskie Grouper but my favorite is the short rib sliders. You got to try them!
It was very good. Seating was not comfortable. Needs refurbishment. Food and service were better than very good - they were outstanding.
We've only been there once but will definitely go again. We dined outside and it was beautiful. The food is excellent as is the service.
The food is only outdone by the staff. Our group had an array of steaks and seafood dishes and there was not a single disappointed diner. Our waiter, Harold, and the rest of the staff were all a delight to work with.
We've dined at Wise Guys a few times over the past couple of years when we come to Hilton Head. We have good meals at reasonable prices for the quality. I particularly like their filets. They are very tender and flavorful. Better than some higher priced restaurants. Service has been decent. Sitting in the front room can be a bit noisy and we have never been seated in the back, so I can't comment on it. I would recommend it, but be sure to have reservations as it is a busy place. We will come back next time we come to Hilton Head.
We had wonderful service from everyone, but especially from Nancy. The food was super and I had the pleasure of enjoying the evening with my daughter and granddaughter who both enjoyed their food very much. Great experience.
I had the filet 6oz portion along with asparagus and loaded skillet potatoes. My husband ordered chicken parmesan. Both meals were excellent. We would go back again next trip to Hilton Head Island.
One of the best meals we have had in a long time
We sat at the bar. Ashley, the bartender did an excellent job looking after us. The food and Ashley made this a terrific experience!
The small plates were ample and delicious. Great balance of flavors and textures. Wine was fabulous!
Seated right on time. Very good service. A good selection on the menu, nice list of wines by the glass.
I would say the food took a bit longer than expected, but came out for all five of us at once. Kind of remarkable considering the different foods we ordered.
All in all a good choice on Hilton Head Island.
Really good. All 3 of us had different dishes from salads to entrees and all were terrific. Wine list is different from most places so you can get something you haven’t tried. And our server Nancy was awesome - she made a couple of key recommendations. A fun night.
We always enjoy it at Wise Guys, love their small plates and attention to gluten free. Great place
Everything was great as usual. Only problem, mix up in getting wrong wine. Fixed at once.
We had a very enjoyable time. Our server, Chris, was extremely knowledgeable about all of the meals.
His service was impeccable. It was obvious, that only the best was expected of the staff. The beet salad was very good. The she crab soup was quite intense in flavor. The rack of lamb was enjoyed, as well as the
prosciutto and fig pizzetta. We were greeted by an envelope placed on our table. It was a special anniversary wish that provided a wonderful surprise brownie sundae.
As usual, food at WiseGuys is outstanding! You know it's good when everyone finishes their meal. Love this place!
The service was slow but our waiter was very nice. We like Wiseguys and took advantage of the early bird specials. Sadly, our food was very salty. We mentioned this to the waiter and he offered us something else. We thanked him but decided to eat our meal. I don’t know if we will be back.
Food NOT Hot AGAIN!!! Blonde Lady (Manager) Made Us Feel RUSHED!!
There Are PLENTY Of OTHER Restaurants On The Island To Try!! Since This Was Our 2nd Experience With Food NOT Being Hot, I Doubt If We Return!!
Food was terrific, service very good considering restaurant was abuzz! Leisurely dinner, both of us enjoyed the Filets cooked to spec, my wife also loved the stuffed baked potato and I enjoyed the Yukon mashed and the side of Cab-Demi glaze! Overall great dinner!
Excellent location, friendly atmosphere, great food. TOO MUCH NOISE!
Our first time here and we will certainly go back.
We both ordered the swordfish special, but they’d unfortunately sold out of it (at 6:45pm). We were offered Mahi mahi with the same preparation, which we agreed to. We’re glad we did: it was very tender and absolutely delicious, prepared with a crabmeat topping, asparagus and a bearnaise sauce.
The service was good, despite being short one server.
Nancy was wonderful and the food was delicious, as always!
I booked a reservation same day for that evening and they were able to accommodate last minute changes. Food was amazing. Will def return
Great service. Excellent food. Awesome wines. What more can you ask for? We had the tuna tar tare lettuce wraps and short rib sliders along with a mushroom risotto small plate. My wife especially enjoyed one of the wine flights. We will definitely visit again when we return to Hilton Head.
Excellent as always!! Cody our waiter was great as usual.
Excellent waitstaff very good food and super early dining menu
One of the best steaks I have ever had. We will definitely be back. First rate.
Fantastic food and great service as always!!!!!
Didn't like the music playing in the background. jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj
My meal was NOT hot when it arrived....Barely warm!
Great early bird dinner, cocktails made per request, wonderful helpful attentive server, Danny. Looking forward to a return visit.
Fantastic dinner as usual. A must for people looking for exceptional food and service.
My companion and I both had the salmon. It was prepared to perfection! However, the accompanying green beans were not cooked to perfection. They were somewhere between raw and very briefly steamed. Tried to return my meal but the server was nowhere to be found. once she showed up she OK, but not attentive.
The manager on duty never checked our table...unlike the procedure at other SERG restaurants.
We were on vacation.
