Harold was the most phenomenal server. He anticipated our needs and offered exceptional recommendations. He was there when needed but was not overbearing. The food was excellent as always. Excellent martinis. I had the twin filet with crab cakes and it blew my last experience with the ribeye out of the water!

Food was great and the service was awesome. We made a reservation while in Spring Break with the kids and had a nice time at Wiseguys. My 15 year old son even asked our waiter to tell the chef that his filet was delicious.

We came to Wise Guys for the final evening of our stay on Hilton Head. We couldn't have been more pleased. We are all vegetarians and the food options were fabulous! We had Wild Mushroom Risotto and the Fresh Capellini and Vegetable Pasta. Both were equally delicious. The house marinated artichokes were incredible! The wine list is extensive and they have interesting cocktails. Try the early dining menu. We finished up the meal with the Creme Brulee Flight. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We enjoyed a great Easter dinner with family and two children. The food was very good, served in a relaxed schedule, and the kid's (9 and 11) loved their food. Nancy was our server and she was patient with the kids and informative for the adults. Everything was very well done.

We were there for my daughter‘s birthday. We had brought a special bottle of wine for the occasion. While we were waiting for our table, the hostess suddenly said to me, “you know we have a corkage fee, don’t you?” I answered, pleasantly, “since most restaurants do, I had assumed there would be a corkage fee”. Pause. She then suddenly said, “they don’t like it if you bring wine that they carry here at the restaurant.” I was a little taken aback. I responded that it wouldn’t matter because I knew they did not carry this particular wine. It was a strange way to begin our experience.

The food was excellent. We had a great waiter, but he was overcommitted, and we had a hard time getting his attention when we needed something.

This was our first visit to Wise Guys and it exceeded our expectations. There were so many options on the Early Dining Menu and our selections were delicious with generous portions at a very reasonable price. We were so excited about bringing three other couples with us to dine here next month only to discover you were already booked. The service was outstanding also. I think it's worth special mention that every single staff member we encountered in the restaurant was extremely friendly and helpful--not just the ones waiting on our table. We will definitely return.

We had a reservation for 4 and were seated right away. Calamari & Shrimp appetizer was tasty. Delmonico Ribeye Steak was well seasoned with good flavor and fresh veggies cooked just right. Other choices by rest of table were equally good. Waiter staff was friendly but they were busy and seemed like they may have been a little shorthanded that night. However service was fine. We would probably go back on our next visit to Hilton Head.

My husband and I visited for our 4 year wedding anniversary, which we had noted on the reservation. When we were seated there was a Happy Anniversary card on the table with a note that we would receive a free dessert. My husband had the sirloin and I had the Filet Mignon. They were the best steaks we have ever had! The dessert was a chocolate brownie with ice cream which was also delicious! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Hilton Head that would like a great steak!

Celebrating my birthday couldn’t have gone better! The food and drinks were outstanding — the porterhouse was well worth the cost. The birthday dessert was a lovely treat and the service by Sam was fantastic.

Sam was the best waiter ever. Great food. We did not try the small plates, but they looked very good. For a couple you would order at least two small plates to make it enough. Around us we saw the pizza come out it is very long and thin and looked delicious. Sam talked us in to a new fish that we had never had before and it was awesome.

While the meal was very good, I was disappointed in the service and that even though I stated in my on-line reservation that it was my wife's birthday, no acknowledgement was made to her. I checked with them before we left and they confirmed that it had been noted in their records and that usually a card is left at the table. In addition, we ordered a very expensive bottle of Caymus wine and except for the initial pour, our waiter did not offer to pour a glass of wine, something fine dining restaurants usually do. I know it was a busy night, but it isn't a fast food restaurant!

This was our second time at Wiseguys and a huge drop off from our first experience. The porterhouse for two while cooked properly was full of fat and gristle and half of it was not edible and could not be successfully navigated with sharp steak knives. Also had sickness the following morning which the likely suspect was something in the Caesar salad. Very disappointing as we had a great experience here the first time. Service was good, but the meal was not.
