We had a small group of 8 and were pleasantly surprised they now took reservations. We have been there before and our wait was long then. While we got seated right away, it still took close to 45 minutes to get 6 of the 8 meals. The other two meals arrived within 10 additional minutes and 1 of those was... More

This was our fourth visit within a couple of years while on vacation. Each previous visit we had really enjoyed the food and the serve was good. This visit we invited friends and family to go with us. We were seated in a booth not far from the restrooms. My husband said the men's room smelled terrible like it had... More

Lots of good food, no corking fees (bring your own beer or wine), great server!! Went to Roastfish late on Saturday night with a group of six women enjoying a girl's weekend. I have enjoyed this restaurant many times with my family. This was the first time it was not crowded, and it actually was almost empty. Not sure why,... More

Without a doubt the most disappointing meal we had during our week on Hilton Head Island. Although there were a number of empty tables we had to wait to be seated as there seemed to be insufficient staff. Once seated our drink order was taken but our server said she would have to wait for a large group (11) to... More

Roastfish & cornbread was referred by a friend who ate there earlier this summer. It is set back off the road and is surrounded by beautiful Oak Trees. The staff was very friendly and the food was delicious. It is a Bring Your Own Bottle Restaurant and there are two places in the shopping center off of Matthews and 278,... More

Little hard to find but when you pull up into the parking lot it makes you feel like you are in the south and the inside is just the same. The service wasn't the best but the good was awesome. Had everything from Alligator to fish. Highly recommend the Alligator appetizer.

Everyone there was extremely friendly and made the experience a great one. There was a bit of a wait to receive our food but we felt it was definitely worth it. Byob was a nice addition to the meal as well.

We specifically located this restaurant due to good reviews/comments and the menu seems to have some healthy choices too. But we were quite disappointed by the experience. We came here on a Tuesday when it was not very busy. We didn't have any reservation and there were seats available when we got there. We ordered appetizers and dishes at around... More

This was the second time I have visited this restaurant, the first time over a year ago on a girls weekend away. The food was excellent both times but the only difference was they no longer have a liquor license so you need to BYOB. The food is absolutely delicious and the sweet potato cornbread purely decadent. There is not... More
