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 food and service was excellent. I dropped a start because they charge you to use a credit card. I have to agree with another reviewer that said at the prices they charge they can afford to eat the CC charge. I ate at another one of their restaurants and was also charged a surcharge to use a CC. I won't be returning to their restaurants until this policy changes.

    First time there and we really enjoyed the place. Stake, loaded jacket potato and roasted vegetables were excellent. Service was good and the dinning atmosphere was very pleasant. We will definitely go back the next time we are in Hilton Head. We highly recommend this place!

    The lobster bisque was way too thick and had no lobster. The prime ribs was large enough and well seasoned but impossible to cut and half fat. The Turkey was breast only and industrial uniformly sliced.

    Had Thanksgiving dinner and the food was great, the service was awesome, and the ambiance was…well, prominent. My only complaint is that the music was too loud and probably needed to be tuned to a channel that wasn’t so energetic. Oh, and don’t get the coffee — it was nasty. The prime rib was perfectly cooked, the mashed potatoes were scrumptious, and the WG Salad was unexpectedly delightful. I finished with a piece of pumpkin pie that I swear my mother made. So, if you don’t mind a place that’s a little loud and the music is pumping, you won’t be disappointed.

    Today was the second Thanksgiving dinner I have eaten at WG. May I just say...very sad. The turkey seemed like sliced deli turkey, the potatoes and stuffing were in tiny scoop portions (like 2" in diameter) and the squash/carrot tiny squares weren't cooked beyond crunchy. Last year was not like this or I would not have returned.

    Our server, Abby, was excellent. The food was good. However, the Serg Group decided to charge more for using a credit card and gift card (we purchased a $100 gift card and was charged a surcharge for using it). We understand that inflation has had an impact on us all, but Wise Guys charges enough to absorb some of the extra costs.

    Went with friends for Thanksgiving dinner. The seating was more comfortable and well spaced compared to our last visit several years ago. The holiday menu was great. However, the serving portions for the traditional turkey meal were unusually small. The prime rib entry was very generous, but the temperature was way more rare than what was ordered.

    Enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner with friends. Dining room was comfortable. Service was as expected for a busy holiday meal. We were 3 couples and there was a mixup with our receipts. We just decided to go with the slight errors in the charges even after the waitress corrections. It was a well prepared and delicious meal. Would recommend and return to WiseGuys.

    I was a little disappointed with food selection. We went on Thanksgiving and could only order off of a prix fixe menu. I called the day before and asked if we would be able to order off of the regular menu and I was told yes. Unfortunately that was not the case. My entree wasn’t hot and the salmon was dry.

    This was our first time dining at Wise Guys. We had our Thanksgiving dinner there and it was really bad. Lobster Bisque had a very bad spoiled fish odor and tasted awful. It was Luke warm and 1 small spoonful tasted terrible. Salad orders were incorrect. Main course of Turkey was pretty sad. Turkey looked and tasted like overcooked dry deli Turkey. Side dishes of stuffing and mashed potatoes were very small, about the size of a small melon ball. Very disappointing. Worst Thanksgiving meal in all my 76years. Today was also my birthday, November 24th.

    The service was excellent for our Thanksgiving lunch. We always enjoy the ambiance of Wise Guys. However, the serving size was small for the salmon, turkey and sides. The turkey tasted pressed, not roasted. The apple dessert was cold and should have been heated or served at least at room temperature.

    Wise Guys' ambience is sorely lacking. It is old and dim; the bar area looks especially ragged, and everyone has to go through it to the dining room. It's just not a pleasant place. Given the shortage of workers, I won't be harsh, but the service was slow. We waited for our bread and first course especially long. The oysters were supposed to be hot and weren't. My prime rib was only ok, the others' beef orders were fine. The ribs were not especially tasty. The vegetables for the table were unappealing to look at.
