WiseGuys Steak & Lounge Ratings and Reviews
Our group of eight seniors was seated quickly and our server was extremely competent and attentive. The entrees were outstanding. My 6 oz filet was prepared perfectly and was so tender. My husband had the Delmonico which he really enjoyed. There were no complaints from anyone.
Food was very good but my pork chop was very fatty. The meat minus the fat was delicious. The chef made up for it, treating me to dessert, which my group enjoyed. It was enough for the four of us.
My husband and his friend had steaks. They were great. My friend had scallops. They were good but she only got 4. A little chincy I thought.
Wow Wise Guys, I hope this was just an off night for you and not the new norm. We were early enough to be offered the early dining menu and 2 in our party of 4 picked from that menu and 2 from the regular menu. I picked the filet and crab cake combo and my husband had the meat loaf. My first course was the wedge salad which came deconstructed... no big deal except for the bacon which obviously was the very crunchy bacon bits probably from a jar....ugh! My filet was extremely tiny but nicely cooked. The crab cake however was obviously prepared in advance and reheated - very mushy and not very tasty. My husband’s meatloaf was just ok and a very generous portion. Unfortunately it was burned along the edges. He did love his first course of the crab soup. Our dining partners who ordered from the regular menu did not have any better experience. She ordered the shrimp and grits which again were topped with those nasty bacon bits. She said the shrimp were good but the grits were tasteless. He had one of the specials that night - fettuccine Alfredo with blackened scallops. The scallops were delicious and perfectly cooked but the sauce on the pasta was so thick it looked like paste. He took it home and said that he had it for lunch the next day after thinning the sauce with cream and that it was good.
I do have to make note that our server (Cecillaj was adorable. She was super efficient and truly the highlight of our evening.
Wise Guys we’ll give you another try because we are locals and eat out often at all the SERG restaurants and will hope that this truly was just an off night.
Great tasting food, superb steaks, small plates tapas-like option, and a no-hustle splitting of large plates, makes this restaurant a calorie friendly establishment that should appeal to most diners. Can be noisy at peak times, so time your reservations accordingly.
Love your food! We were seated in the back dining room at our request. Your food is always enjoyed! The noise level in the dining room is not conducive to conversation. Bar area noise is always highly energetic, but we hoped the back dining room would be more comfortable.
We went to Wise Guys for their Early Bird menu , which had many options. I had the filet with crab cake. Crab cake was small, but filet was perfectly cooked. Our server, Ashley, was superb!
Restaurant was not crowded at the time we went, and I would recommend it.
We did the early fixed price meal. Service was excellent. Only a few folks in the restaurant since it was off season. Had the crab filet - filet was excellent and done as ordered. The crab cake was small and over cooked. My husband had the she crab soup that was the best ever. I had the WG salad and that was wonderful. Also had the best lemon drop martini...
This was a very good meal and nice price. Might be a little light for men, but perfect amount for me. Would recommend.
After receiving multiple recommendations, we decided to try WiseGuys. It was definitely an off night for the restaurant. The dining room was packed, the waitstaff over whelmed, and the kitchen was backed up. Our drinks took over 20 minutes to receive (bottle of wine) and food we’re mixed plates of cold and over cooked once we received our meals after a lengthy wait.
Not a stellar experience.
Thanksgiving Dinner was excellent, just the right amount of food. Very tender turkey whipped potatoes both sweet and white were creamy, sausage stuffing was yummy as was the green beans. Gravy was home made excellent. The crab cake appetizer and stuffed mushroom as well as the beef and vegetable soup, and Caesar salad were all done to perfection, we had to take home the apple pies, GREAT late night snack. Thanks WG for a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Was told a must go restaurant for a steak. Nice dining area. Filet mignon and braised short ribs Excellent. French onion soup cheese burned and tasted charred despite sending it back once. Mashed potatoes too soupy. Prefer thicker. I would recommend and I would go back.
As always, the wait service was very good. Our waitress was punctual, knowledgeable, and very friendly. We generally order a few different small plates and share. Our favorite continues to be the shrimp and calamari small plate.....outstanding. The special cocktails are also very good. My wife loves the pomegranate martini and I think the manhattans are exceptional.
Upscale but comfortable setting. Service excellent. Good wine list. She crab soup, steak excellent but roasted squash (seasonal vegetable) was undercooked and the scallops, while good, would have been tastier if they were pan seared. The pros definitely outweighed the cons. Highly recommend.
What a pleasant surprise! Handcrafted cocktail to start...Lemon Drop Martini was excellent. I had the small plate Chicken and waffles and my date had a soup and custom salad. Everything was presented well and the service was outstanding. The waiter could not have been more knowledgeable or professional. It was a fun, inexpensive, good food evening.
The bartender, & our server, Danny, were very professional and efficient. We really enjoyed the Mediterranean platter as well as our early dining dinners. You really get “the bang for your bucks”— all while enjoying a relaxing ambiance. We always dine here when we visit the island, and we are never disappointed.
This restaurant was phenomal, our server was amazing as well as the host team. Thank you so much for making troy’s early birthday a delight!! We will definitely be back and the sip moscato was fantastic with our entire meal. Bravo to the cooks and our server sssistant as well.
This was our first visit to Wise Guys. So many things on the menu we wanted to order. Our server, Melissa, was a great help. Our food was awesome. We love the ambiance of this restaurant . Can’t wait to go back and try other items. Great menu for a light bite or full meal. Highly recommend.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Our waiter, Sam, was especially attentive and knowledgable about the food and wine choices. I enjoyed the shrimp and calamari appetizer, along with the beet salad, and Grouper Daufuskie. Other members of our party enjoyed the catch of the day special! It was a memorable and fun evening and we are certainly coming back when we are in Hilton Head, again.
