At first we expected this to be something different based on the name, but we were pleasantly surprised. The decor is elegant and contemporary, which is more of what we were looking for in Hilton Head. Our meal was excellent!! We had the ribeye that was cooked and seasoned perfectly. Harold recommended an excellent wine pairing with the steak, and... More

They do a lot of things right here. Danny was our server, a real pro. Very good chow, everything we had was very nice... but the steaks are the thing to get. My NY Strip was perfectly cooked and excellent. Nice wine program, proper stemware.

We had the rib eye and a seafood combo, started with a white flatbread pizza with shrimp all of which we enjoyed very much. The steak was perfectly cooked as ordered and the seafood was just right. Food was a little salty so say 'no salt' if you don't go for that and add your own at the table -... More

We were pleased to be seated here without reservations on a Saturday night. The atmosphere is nice, and the service was wonderful. They have many varieties of small plated meals. I would recommend the fresh capellini and veggie pasta. It was very tasty. The others in my party ordered steaks and said they were full of flavor and very tender.

We based our dinner choice tonight on trip advisor and it was one of the big surprises of this late summer vacation. Raven, our very enthusiastic and attentive server kept the evening lively as my family tried seven or eight different dishes and every single one delivered. Standout dishes included an amazing take on shrimp and grits, lobster dumplings that... More
