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

Dined here for dinner on a Saturday evening Apparently Saturday is a "get settled in" day in Hilton Head so a reservation was not necessary. Beautiful setting on the water, indoor or outdoor seating available. Live piano music was a nice touch. I inquired about the salmon. I will only order salmon if it is wild caught as the flavor...

I had a lamb chop special and my husband had the Steak Frites. I was so in love with the red wine reduction sauce on my lamb I wanted to lick the plate! My husbands Rib eye was enourmous and served as leftovers for lunch for both of us the next day. They even tollerated our fairly well behaved 3... More

We sat outside looking at the water and boats while we sipped on Rose wine and thoroughly enjoyed the escargot, coquille, brie, and cake for dessert. It was leisurely and relaxing; we ordered one thing at a time and then decided what we wanted next. Janelle was the perfect server - she appeared at the appropriate times to refill our... More
