Great experience with a fantastic meal. The menu is 10 items to much in my opinion. And the lighting in the back room was to bright. That covers my complaints. That’s it. The rest was amazing. Great food all around bed Beef Carpaccio I have ever had. Amazing steak cooked perfectly. The shrimp and grits for my dining partners was outstanding. Creamy and salty without being over salted. The most outstanding item for our dinner was the perfectly cooked calamari. An Asian flair with the fun presentation falling out of a “rice to go box”. Reminded me of bang bang shrimp with much more flavor and crunch. Great meal for sure and will be back

I had mentioned that my fiancé and I were dining as it was our anniversary/“quarantine birthday dinner”. It was such a wonderful surprise as they had gone out of their way to give us a complimentary dessert, and everyone who touched the table, including the hostess, wished us a happy anniversary and birthday. With everything going on, it was such a nice touch and we did not leave a drop of the warm chocolate brownie sundae! The food presentation was phenomenal, and the porterhouse for two was cooked to perfection! We did not receive our soup and salad which wasn’t recognized until after the service; however, the manager was kind enough to take care of our appetizer for the inconvenience. With that set aside, overall, we enjoyed another unforgettable experience, and this is why we will continue to dine at Wise Guys!

We enjoyed celebrating my birthday at Wise Guys. Our waiter, Jack was outstanding. We loved the atmosphere & ambience. The venison special was outstanding. The filets with Oscar Sauce were excellent as well. Bananas Foster was exceptional along with the birthday treat of warm brownie with ice cream! We enjoyed some interesting signature cocktails, as well. Definitely would recommend Wise Guys and hope to return if we visit Hilton Head Island again.

My wife’s ribeye was tough. The shrimp cocktail was not very good either. My scallops were very good and our service was excellent. It seems to me that Wise Guys has slipped a bit from our past experiences there.

You did not honor my table request, despite confirming it with me a few hours before... Front desk is unorganized and makes a terrible first impression... I have been a long time dinner and the first impression by your front desk, keeps going down hill...

The food was great, service great, and the noise was at a level that you could actually carry on a conversation with your spouse. The thing that really shocked me was that we were told we had to move along that this table was reserved for a couple in 30 minutes. We had just completed eating our entree and had some wine in our bottle to finish before ordering a dessert and coffee. After hearing this we decided to finish our wine and skip dessert and coffee. This really shocked me and was the very first time that we ever ran into something like this. So after 1 hour and 15 minutes later, we were out the door. We generally spend 2-3 hours on dinner evening at our table and have all 3 courses with wine and sometimes an after dinner drink. Sorry, not this time. Sad ending to what started a great evening. Shame on you!

Disappointed in overall experience. One of our party was not served their meal until the rest of us were finished with our meal. We were still charged complete price for that last entree that five people watched our sixth member eat. We were basically ignored by our servers after this happened when a little concern and courtesy could have gone a long way. Unacceptable. We will not be back despite the fact that this has been on our standing rotation for years.

During our annual 2-month visit from the Northeast (Rhode Island) Wise Guys has always been, and will continue to be, one of our top go-to spots in Hiltn Head. I would definitely say use Open Table for your reservation because big crowds are regularly part of the Wise Guys scene. Excellent food, good service, strong wine list all make for a great evening. I even have a specific table number we like in my personal Open Table Wise Guys file.

Premium prices but average quality. Snapper special was not fresh but $ 29. Onion soup excellent. Waiter guy was new and slow. He needed help. We were 2 people. Place was packed. Third time here. I will pay higher prices but Wiseguys need to be better.

It might have been this time, but the services was VERY slow, compared to other times. They were cleaning the tables by us and others, and using a bleach solution that was making everyone's eyes water and people were coughing. Very Very bad. I did bring it to the managers attention.

Wise Guys, please don't go down hill. You have been great in the past.

The waitress was excellent for covering too many tables in different areas of the restaurant. She tried her best.
The French. Onion soup was very good.
The Margherita flatbread came out totally burnt with very meager toppings singed and melted off the sides. The crepes foster contained two small soggy tubes filled with Nutella and helped by the scoop of vanilla ice cream our waitress used to save the dinner and dish.
