Mother's Day dinner - success!

This was our first time at Wiseguys and it didn't disappoint. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly - he even offered to show our two young boys the kitchen. We walked back with him and saw it (from the outside), which was neat. The food was great, in particular the steak and mixed... read more

First dinner out in Hilton Head last night, and WOW! We chose WiseGuys based on their great reviews on here, and I'm happy to say that tripadvisor didn't let us down. Unique atmosphere, attentive, friendly service from Sam, and free dessert because we were celebrating a birthday! The food was also delicious. My filet was so tender and the seasonal... More

After being told there was a ridiculous minimum 2.5 hour wait at another restaurant, we called a few others to be met with a similar answer. This place however gave us a 1/2 hour window and made us a reservation which gave us plenty of time to get there from down the road. We walked in to a friendly greeting... More

Our server, Julian was extremely well trained and attentive. We started with Martinis along with 2 small plates. We completely enjoyed the balanced taste of the calamari and shrimp dish as well as the tuna tartare in lettuce cups topped with crispy wontons. My filet was perfectly cooked along with Yukon mashed potatoes and fresh spinach. My husbands snapper was... More

We chose Wise Guys to celebrate my wife's birthday because of its extensive menu with small plate and gluten free options. Start to finish the restaurant exceeded our expectations with excellent, friendly service, wonderfully prepared food, a fun and playful ambience and a generosity of spirit in presentation, quality and quantity of the meal. The manager comped us desert because... More

Delicious food, the WG salad was exquisite, the beets salad was amazing, the scallops dish was good, vermicelli pasta with shrimp was super good, finally the banana foster crepes with vanilla ice cream was out of this world. Very courteous server:Brandon, excellent job!

We stopped by WiseGuys because we found out they had a bottle of the 20 year old Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon that we had been looking for. What we found (in additional to this rare whiskey) was one of the best bars we have ever visited. When we arrived at WiseGuys, we were not hungry, so we settled in at... More

My pilot boyfriend and I love to fly to new places to enjoy life and while on a recent (late April) trip to Hilton Head Island found WiseGuys. The food was excellent! The atmosphere classy yet casual and the service was spot-on! Our waiter Dirk was extremely friendly, helpful and his recommendations were perfect. Thank you for a great experience... More

Hilton Head is where tourists eat.... so we had generally low expectations for food options. Wiseguys really was a terrific surprise. Menu was very creative and service was fresh and the food well prepared. We were a large party (9) with diverse food tastes (from the very simple to extreme foodie) and everyone seemed to find something to suit their... More

I stopped by to grab some food to go. Julian the bartender was terrific. I asked if I could change up the toppings on one of the flatbreads and it was no problem. The Shrimp & Calamari was amazing but the Fig & Prosciutto flatbread was out of this world!!!
