Terrific birthday dinner -- beef fillet for me, delicious salad, very good bread. Everyone in our group loved their meals. The piano & clarinet duo are wonderful.

The first day we walked in Shelter Cove Marina, we remarked at the wonderful luncheon menu at Bistro 17. Then promptly forgot it. While perusing one of the restaurant brochures, the 15% off food from 5 to 6 30 interested us. When we arrived we were surprised to see it was the 1st restaurant that interested us. What a fabulous... More

We visit each year and this remains one of our best choices ever. Everyone is incredibly nice and the service very good. The food is just delicious and well worth the price. We will return.

My husband and I were looking for a restaurant in Shelter Cove to try. We like the area with the different shops and marina and knew there was a host of restaurants there. Looking at reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to go to Bistro 17. Could not have made a better choice. We had a reservation but it wasn't... More

We love coming to this place when we visit Hilton Head. It's not casual, but not upscale either--it's just right for a romantic dinner after a long day at the beach. The view is excellent along the harbor. The food/wine menu is large enough to suit plenty of tastes. The service is always friendly and prompt. And the best part... More

We had a nice lunch here overlooking the marina so pretty! Had a salad with a crabcake , and my friend had the mixed salad plate. Both were very good, and will be coming back to try dinner.

Charming French bistro atmosphere, lovely outdoor dining area should you so choose -- we ate inside near the bar. They do have a piano and entertainment some nights. Service a bit dicey but they try. We loved our gal! A limited French bistro menu that does manage to offer something for everyone. Had a serene and tasty experience -- ordered... More

The food was mediocre and nothing special. We ate there for lunch and all 4 of us had something different. The service was just ok, the waitress was somewhat unattentive. The view is really nice with the marina in the background.

We sat inside as it was such a warm evening, and enjoyed the piano music. My husband and I each had a salad and shared the rib eye. Best steak I've ever had! We're from cincinnati, which boasts many fine steak houses, but none compare to the rib eye Bistro 17 serves. This was our first time here, and we... More
