Dining with friends, we did not find this a great meal and a bit expensive for such ordinary food and expensive wine

Brunch was delightful. Our first time and we will be back. The pear, watercress salad was perfect and the seafood cake delicious and just the right proportions. The seafood bisque and omelet we good, but not extraordinary. We watched a bald eagle soar and 5-6 dolphins in a feeding frenzy. Be sure to come when light and take the short... More

We have been visiting Hilton Head for more than 25 years and Old Fort Pub has been a regular stop for our group (my wife and I along with friends). Unfortunately, our most recent visit has clouded our view of this well-established restaurant. I made reservations on Open Table and got a confirmation call from the restaurant the afternoon of...

Food was outstanding and the setting at sunset was to die for. Service was good and friendly. A sweet tidbit at end of meat was not expected and seemed special. We will go back again during day so we can enjoy the setting longer.

We're so happy that you had an enjoyable evening with us! We hope that you will join us, perhaps for happy hour, on the deck where you can enjoy the sunset in it's entirety. Thank you for choosing Old Fort Pub for your special occasion! More

The salad, main course ( duck) and the dessert were all amazing. I was so full but I ate every last bite of all 3 courses. Server, Michelle was wonderful and because they were running a special, 3 courses for $33. We were able to experience a lot for a reasonable price!

Took an out of towner for dinner. The water views are amazing and never disappoint. They offered a 3 course meal for $30 per person and it was an outstanding value. Great service and fresh seafood daily. Menu is expansive with many creative dishes. Great special occasion restaurant and fabulous brunch on Sundays.

Old Fort Pub, located inside Hilton Head Plantation, has fine food plus wonderful sunset views. The menu has ample choices. Our waiter was quite helpful without too much chatter. Inquire at the two entrance gates for specific directions or use your GPS. Drive carefully at night.

Had dinner last nite with two other couples from our neighborhood. Took advantage of their Jan/Feb special which is an entree and two other choices from appetizers, salads or desserts for $33. Great food, atmosphere and service! If you want a special dinner and the best water views of the island you need to go to Old Fort Pub!

Now in my top 3 favorites on the island. The staff was incredible, the view is one of the best on the island, especially during sunsets, and you can often see dolphins playing in the waterway. Food is high end and delicious and during non-peak times, they have a 3 for $33 special which is such a great deal. Call... More
