We enjoyed Easter dinner here. The steaks were delicious along with the French onion soup. My son said this was the best steak he had on the island so far. The service was also very good. Will return.

Started out a little rough when it took a bit for a server to greet us, but she made up for the initial disappointment with her outstanding service throughout our dinner. We will return and enjoyed the experience and atmosphere 100%. Highly recommend trying it out.

Fantastic experience! By far, the best on the island during our trip. Great service, great food, great value!! We decided to try a number of small plates and are so glad we did. They were all delicious!! The chicken & waffles, short rib stuffed mushrooms, lamb meatballs, shrimp & lobster wontons, French onion soup and dessert!! Our waitress was fantastic and she made great recommendations on everything we asked about - will definitely be back!!

Each year we come to Hilton Head and eat in a new restaurant. This by far was the best food we have had! So yummy! We left a little too full but we had to try so many things! Did not disappoint- we will definitely be going back again!

This was SUCH a nice treat. The early dinner is the way to go if you are on a budget like us. Truly one of the best meals I've had in years. (I had the filet with crab cake.) The ambience was great too.

We had an amazing experience at WiseGuys for the first time! All the staff were friendly and accommodating to our daughters (aged 7 and 9). The food was fantastic and they even treated us for our anniversary! If you’re in Hilton Head Island, I definitely recommend!

We dine often at Wise Guys & have always been pleased with the service & food. However, the service was terrible this time. We arrived first & was greeted by our waitress. She brought our drinks. I told her our bill would be separate from the other couple joining us. They arrived shortly thereafter. She didn't come back to get their drink orders so my friend went inside to ask for our waitress. Awhile later she returned. While taking our dinner order my friend also said two separate checks. The food was fine. The bill was incorrect......she was very polite & said she would correct it. Came back....still not right. Third time....still incorrect. We paid & left. Her attitude and appearance were fine but the service/bill was lacking for sure.

Thank you for making our evening special.

We loved our experience at WiseGuys! We picked out a bunch of small plates and let our server pace them out as she thought fit. The prosciutto and fig pizzetta was probably my favorite, so flavorful! Our server helped us choose a fun bottle of wine as well. I wish I had our receipt to shout her out! I can’t remember her name! Also we could hear the table next to us being snotty, but she handled it like a champ. Anyway, we live in Savannah but we’d definitely visit again to try the steaks next time!

We have enjoyed dinner at Wise Guys many times, not this time. This weekend we were celebrating in a different way, It was a celebration for my sister in law's upcoming wedding. Our server was quite snappy and rushed our entire visit. She seemed to be irritated because I asked if it was possible to choose from an "early bird" entrée (even if it cost more) simply because the portion size was smaller. She just flat out said, No. we were a little taken back by her tone. We asked for more time to review the menu and she was adamant to take our order. She even made a rude comment to me about being upset about ordering and i decided to order nothing at all. She was a killjoy. The rest of the dinner party contemplated whether or not e should just leave but it was already after 9:00 so they ordered sides and appetizers. She was not pleasant with us the rest of the evening. However, there was a young man that may have noticed something was wrong because he checked on us regularly. I wouldn't say that we would never come back because it is one of our favorite restaurants in Hilton Head. It just might not be our first choice anymore.

This was one of my favorite dining experiences in recent memory on HHI.

Josh our waiter was superb. Knowledgeable, attentive and very personable.

I had the special menu ribeye, aged 48 days with a coffee rub and a side of lobster tail, my wife had the Short ribs.

All I can say is WOW!!! Ribeye was incredibly tender, flavorful and considering it was a ribeye, pretty lean.

My wife said the short ribs were the best she ever had and that’s saying allot as we have lived in NYC, San Diego and San Francisco to name a few, so we are NO strangers to GREAT food.

I will be back for a second dose to see if this place is consistent. But on Saturday night March 20th 2021, this place was the “Bomb”!
