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.

You can have either tapas or entrees at this renovated and wonderful eatery. Especially good was the prime rib entree and the filet mignon sliders. Their horseradish sauce is delicious with both.

We love Wise Guys and regularly dine there. This is the 1st time in over 20 visits where I had an entrée not up to the high quality we expect. It was the "Chicken Saltimbocca". Would always prefer boneless breast, but could not locate the prosciutto and/or provolone cheese stuffing.

My wife had the always great filet and onion soup and the Stuffed Mushrooms were excellent. Won't order this entrée but Wise Guys is still excellent and we will continue to be regulars...

We tried the early diner option and really enjoyed it - We sat in the booths in the bar area and enjoyed the bustle of the crowd without it being too noisy.The smaller portions enabled us to add and enjoy appetizers and dessert without feeling overstuffed! The food was delicious- the shrimp especially had a great flavor both fried and grilled. It must have truly been local shrimp as advertised! Our server Michael was attentive without being overbearing and was supported by others who kept the dishes cleared and the water glasses filled. Best dining experience in quite awhile!

My waiter did not ask how I wanted my filet mignon sliders cooked. They were rare and I could not eat them. My house salad was largely fricassee not other lettuces. I was so disappointed because our bill was over $100. Won’t be going there again!

The food and service were great. Originally went in for the early-bird special and changed my mind and choose a ribeye instead.

We were seated promptly when we arrived by very friendly greeters. The food and beverage menus were more than adequate with a trend toward beef but other great dishes available. The service was attentive without being intrusive. We enjoyed our experience and left feeling everyone there did too.

Our server was fantastic - knowledgeable, engaging, sensitive to the needs of his customers. Great wine suggestions. The tuna entree was out of this world. Congrats to the chef. Small plates were actually pretty big plates, tasty, but way too, and I mean too, salty - I almost thought two line chefs salted the same plate.

Was a bit disappointed with our night at WiseGuys. Had made reservation for seating in the main dining room, instead we were seated in the area near the bar. It was noisy. I was under the impression that it was supposed to be a swanky, fine dining restaurant. I was surprised to see people in grungy t-shirts, sweatpants and baseball caps. Our dinner was fine, steaks done as ordered. It was my husband’s birthday, and they brought some kind of chocolate cake lump with a Happy Birthday message written on the plate. While this was nice of them, it was just plopped down in front of him. We were never given an option to order different desserts or coffees. Our server disappeared and returned with our check. It felt like we were being rushed because it was busy. It was not our idea of a fine dining experience.

Excellent service, food and atmosphere, it was my 13th wedding anniversary with my lovely bride and it was a great experience, we felt very welcome and well taken care of. We decided on the Porterhouse steak for two and the steak was cooked perfectly. Everything was delicious and they provided a complimentary dessert of chocolate torte which was excellent.. great experience all around, we will definitely be back!!

Guess our expectations from reading reviews were misplaced. Small plates s are really just appetizers, thought would be more along the lines of Tapas. Entries very expensive for what they were. Braised short ribs dry, mushroom risotto was really mushy. However scallops were cooked to perfection! Shrimp and Calamari appetizer was delicious as well as duck egg rolls! Octopus small plate combination of olives and chickpeas green as not a favorite at all.
Maybe we ordered wrong.

This was our second visit since the reopening. Much improved meals & service. Food was spectacular. We had charcuterie small plate, pizzetta, octopus, petite filet, & a wise guys salad. Everything was terrific and the charcuterie plate & octopus were particularly outstanding.

We agreed, things are back to normal.

You don't expect a home cooked dinner in a restaurant on a holiday. Our dinner far exceeded our expectations. Additionally, the service was prompt but did not feel rushed.

I have eaten here numerous times in the past and everything was outstanding!

However, they really blew it, with their Thanksgiving Meal. Food was lukewarm, portions were very small, and everything was overall uninspiring. Desert was terrible, and I think I got sick on the Lobster Bisque. It’s the only item my dining companions didn’t have that I had.

I will never ever return for a specialty meal.

But that aside, this is a dynamite restaurant on BBC a day to day basis.

Service was the biggest complaint. Hostess said table was ready but then she sat and talked to other hostesses to figure out what to do.

Waiter was not prompt. Asked for butter for bread and never arrived. Went to manager to get it. Water was only refilled once.

Cost seemed high for dinners

First time going to this restaurant. We were lucky to get a spot in the lounge on a busy evening before a holiday. We enjoyed the ambiance and the buzz from the bar. We were still able to have a conversation and overall liked the energy.

The food was very good and cocktails hit the mark. Our server was wonderful and checked on us multiple times. We will definitely be back!
