this is one of the best restaurants in hilton head. the menu is largely Italian but done in a way that it doesn't seem Italian...sort of with a continental flair. the restaurant itself is upscale but not intimidating. (I wore jeans and no one cared.) the wait staff was A1. our waitress did a great wine pairing for my meal.

We visited this restaurant during their 15 year anniversary with their favorite menu choices over the last 15 years that were priced at $15. They didn't skimp on portion size and the food was delicious as always. This is my all time favorite restaurant on Hilton Head and trust me, there are many wonderful choices. I went back the next...

Obviously the food is what most of us are looking to be outstanding and this restaurant will not let you down. In addition to a wonderful selection of fresh cuisine the atmosphere and service make it "top notch". I dare say you won't find a better combination of everything completed to perfection than here.

We started with the calamari sauteed with white wine which was a pleasant surprise. Our server Elijah Walters took his time to explain the wine selection and made a very good recommendation. This was our first time and will not be the last. Keep up the good work.

After coming to Hilton Head for many years we finally decided to try Michael Anthony's during their 15 year anniversary celebration. The menu was full of their 15 favourites over the years and it was hard to choose. I ended up with the duck which was amazing. I hope the chef considers putting it back on the regular menu. The...

Last week the restaurant was celebrating their 15th anniversary and offered 15 of their most requested entrees on sale so we thought this a great time to try this popular place. We were not disappointed. The food is excellent as well as the service. We will return.

Me and my husband went there for our valentines dinner and I must say it was great. It was beautiful atmosphere with great Italian food. Our server Lucy was unbelievable. She described the dishes like a host of the food network and she didn't disappoint. Her suggestions were top notch and her service was fast and friendly. Would definitely recommend... More

Michael Anthony is celebrating a very special anniversary this week so we were lucky enough to have choices of all of their favorites for $15 per entree. This is our second visit to this restaurant and both visits were exceptional. We were a party of six and sat upstairs in a beautiful semi-private area. Each couple shared an appetizer, which...

This Saturday we visited Michael Anthony's. They were celebrating their 15 year Anniversary. We arrived at 8:30 and the restaurant was packed. We were immediately escorted to our usual table and as soon as we sat down the Manager was over with our complementary glass of Champagne. All the entrees were $15 in honor of their Anniversary and the portions... More
