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.

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.

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!

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
