Awesome Night with Friends!

Some of the girls and I went to WiseGuys for the excellent happy hour special! It was great! We had a lovely server named Nancy. She was fast and friendly. She was knowledgable of the menu. We can't wait to go again!

We dined for the first time at WiseGuys last night. Loved the atmosphere - chic and sleek. The restaurant seems to be a favorite spot for locals, as well as out-of-towners. The interesting menu offers something for everyone, from small plates to steak and seafood entrees. We were impressed with the fact that with a steak, a sauce and two... More

I wish we discovered this place first on HH. We ate there our last night and I would go back often. SO delicious. 1. The server, Raven, was fantastic. So personable and loves her job and restaurants. Wise Guys is so lucky to have such a knowledgable and attentive staff member. 2. Food- the choices were numerous. The menu takes... More

Advertised as a tapas restaurant, but the menu was much more in favor of steaks and seafood entrees. We did try one tapas that's worthy of mention: fried chicken and waffles. Who would have thought? It was very good. For mains it was seafood; grouper and shrimp. Both with Gouda grits and spinach , mushrooms. Both good. Nice bread pudding... More

We found this restaurant through Yelp and Trip Advisor. (How did we manage before the Internet?!) This restaurant has a good bar, a good wine selection and lots of interesting small plates. Although we came in expecting to order wine, we went instead with the Lemon drop martini special which was excellent. The food overall was very good. We especially... More

we really thought Wise Guys was terrific. Very diverse menu, especially small plates. We opted for the NY strip steak which was absolutely perfect. Done to perfection, tender and that real grilled flavor. Wait staff were very helpful and recommended a great wine that was an excellent value. We plan on going back again before we leave Hilton Head.

Great food/drinks, great atmosphere, great service. Seven of us girls went to celebrate a bachelorette party with dinner. Everyone enjoyed their delicious food and fun drinks. Our server was fantastic and she gave us a delicious complimentary dessert to celebrate. I definitely recommend this place.

When you go ask to be served by Chris or Sam. They do a great job serving and helping you select the right wine and food. The food is consistently very good. If you can eat early you will get a 25 % discount, but you must be seated early.
