We felt very rushed, they called and offered us an earlier time slot, we were seated in the bar area although the restaurant seemed very slow. We have enjoyed the restaurant in the past but this was not a good experience.

After having a late lunch we were not overly hungry. My wife had the beet salad and chicken and waffles from the small plates section of the menu. I had the she crab soup and filet sliders. The food was very good and service was just as good. We've been coming to Hilton head for 15 years and never been to wise guys. This will definitely be on our list of restaurants to revisit.

I don’t know if I’d go back. Had to send my food back, due to something found in it and they brought me back the same 2 out of 3 items and my steak was dry.

We had a great Valentine's Day dinner at Wise Guys. I had a very tasty salmon dish with farro. The two meshed together nicely. My husband had the Grouper which he enjoyed. To cap off the dinner, we had the chocolate fondue. This dessert is excellent with the pot of melted chocolate, strawberries, bananas, pound cake, and churros to dip into it. Can't pass up this delicacy!

It was Valentines Day for us. From the entrance the staff was friendly and inviting. Chris was our waiter and was very knowledgeable of the menu. For our first time there everyone made sure we were comfortable with the menu and atmosphere. I think it was either the front of the house manager or the kitchen manager that came to check on us. The food was delicious. The ambiance was inviting, and I thought the food was priced as expected. I gave the waiter and staff special directions for the occasion and everyone happily obliged. They made sure our night was memorable.

My order of rare ahi tuna was over cooked. It was readily taken back I thought to prepare another one properly.
The resulting dish came back even more cooked than it was the first time. It looked like they just cooked it some more which makes no sense.
I’ve been there many times when they did a better job. I chalk it up to they’re being very busy the day before Valentines Day.
