Wise Guys has always been one of our favorite restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed the Thanksgiving menu, especially the options aside from turkey. Ashleigh was very attentive and we really enjoyed the great weather that allowed us to dine on the enclosed patio. See you again soon!

Thanksgiving was super delicious!! The shrimp cocktail and shrimp/calamari appetizer were so yummy! Loved the beet salad! Our plates were heaping with goodies for the main entree and our server was so kind and wrapped up all the leftovers with extra gravy. Look forward to going back!

Great restaurant with two different atmospheres between a bustling bar area with high tops and romantic small tables snd a larger back room, open and quieter. Best chef on the Island with Chef Chaun. Great menu, diverse with small plates, seasonal specials, fresh seafood, prime aged beef. Great wine listings, awesome bourbon whiskey inventory and hand crafted drinks. Outdoor eating too! Come here. You will enjoy!

We have eaten at WiseGuys many times over the years but this time was off the charts bad. The seating was very uncomfortable, especially the bench seating. We had to ask for a chair so my husband did not have to sit on the bench which was hurting his back. We saw many other partrons on benches squirming around. My pizzetta was dry and tasteless and my husband said the shrimp in his shrimp and grits were the hardest shrimp he has ever tasted. It is too bad because prior experiences were good. Maybe it was just an off night but we are hard pressed to return any time soon.

This was our first visit to Wise Guys after living nearby for 18 years. My wife and I both enjoyed our meal, rack of lamb for me and a seafood medley for her. Josh was a very good server. They were busy Saturday night but everything worked out very well. We will be going back soon.

We just love WiseGuys and it is our go to restaurant when we come to Hilton Head. Sandy always warmly greets us and makes us feel welcome. It is so nice to dine at a restaurant with consistently good food and service. Morgan waited on us this time and she was great. We can’t wait to go back.

Thank you! Sue & Larry Kehoe

We had reservations and was promptly escorted to table. Immediately served iced water with menus. Minutes later our drinks order was taken, beer was ice cold, alcohol free cocktail crisp and refreshing. Absolutely recommend the "porterhouse for 2", 32 oz of perfectly cooked, espresso rubbed, medium rare steak heaven with melting truffle butter on top. It came with 2 sides each, ours was baked potato, creamed spinach, a super creamy mac n cheese and the best asparagus ever. We had enough left for another meal. Closed with flourless chocolate torte alongside chocolate ice cream on bed of fudge ganache with generous sprinkling of toasted hazelnut halves. Their coffee was freshly ground and the perfect ending beverage. We look forward to traveling back and repeat the same meal!

Nice atmosphere however my steak was not cooked probably and had to be sent back. Also “lava” cake dessert was cold. And I have a shellfish allergy and there must have been some cross contamination in the kitchen because I had trouble breathing after the dinner

This has the ambiance of a classic steak house but missing some architectural features like more visible wood. One could say that having an early bird menu sends a mixed message—is this a steak house or a geezer stop in the low country? Drop the early menu, maybe by including more small plate options.
Our service was superb. My wine choice was unavailable and this was mildly irritating but acceptable alternatives were available—the downside here is the need for alternatives.
The food was excellent and we would go there again.

Stopped in for dinner tonight. Wonderful place. Lots of stuff on the menu and we decided to start with the beef carpaccio which was good. My wife liked her filet sliders and I liked my short rib sliders. Rachel, our server was excellent. Friendly, efficient, checked back and didn't auction off the food. Prices were not bad and like I said, this was the best overall meal of our trip. Well worth stopping by.

We had reservations for our 25th anniversary. We wanted something really special. Wiseguys provided a very memorable evening for us. The steak was outstanding, one of the best I have had. The sommelier selected a wonderful wine for us, based on our tastes. He was very knowledgeable and provided an added amenity to our visit.
In short, it was fun, it was wonderful food and wine. Highly recommend

We always experience excellent service and food at Wiseguys. Entrees are creatively prepared and, well, tasty! Excellent beverage and wine selections, pairing recommendations, etc. Attention to detail and unhurried service make Wiseguys one of our very favorites! Reservations are essential! This is not an intimate environment, generally speaking. For us, it is where friends gather to enjoy one another along with great food, service and ambiance!
