We stopped in at the Old Oyster Factory yesterday afternoon for appetizers and a cold beverage. Unfortunately, our friends remembered that they opened at 4:15 when, in actuality it is 4:45. We sat out on their deck enjoying the beautiful breeze and the company of some other "early birds". Promptly at 4:45 the doors opened and the cherry staff welcomed... More

5 of us had dinner inside at the Old Oyster Factory. Without reservations were were seated immediately at a table next to the window overlooking Broad Creek. (The parking lot and restaurant seemed full.) The food and service was excellent.

For our final dinner in Hilton Head, we chose The Old Oyster Factory. We made Open Table reservations but had a 20 minute wait. We were then seated at a nice table by a window with a great water view, but our table was within inches of several large groups of noisy kids and adults. The menu was what you'd... More

Arrived around 6pm on Sunday. It was busy, but not packed. The place is huge! We decided to sit outside on the deck as the weather was perfect. We had the Seafood Medley and the Fried Seafood Entrees. Both were very good. Then ended with a Creme Brûlée which was excellent. The service was just ok.

We went for dinner Easter night -while it was busy we were able to make a reservation on open table, were seated immediately and had a beautiful water view. Food was very good with lots of seafood options - my husband(not a fish eater) had steak and it was delicious. Kid menu worked for our picky eaters. Overall nice atmosphere... More

Beautiful restaurant and views but food was disappointing. Husband had the early bird pork chop and I tried the Trigger fish after an appetizer of a dozen of Savannah Oysters. Food was Ok! Service from Petey was less than attentive.

We went just after 5pm on a Wednesday evening and the place was close to empty. It was the week after the Heritage golf tourney so that's probably why. We were able to eat outside and the view is great but the only negative was that the sun was directly on us (and essentially in my eyes) so it got... More

Excellent place to eat. The service was great on top of every need. Two outside patios and a large indoor area over looking bay. Food was excellent.
