Let me begin by saying that this used to be our favorite restaurant on the island. HOWEVER, it has slowly gone down hill over the past couple of years. We went last night and were seated at 7:45 pm and ordered immediately as well knew the menu well and already knew what we wanted. Our appetizers didn't make it on... More

I usually love this place. Bit of a letdown this time. I ordered 3 veggies (which are usually awesome). It took over 30 minutes, and when finally arrived, I was informed they were out of Collard greens, which are my favorite. Their veggies are usually so good, but was just not as good this time. I hope they will consider... More

Most expensive meal we had during our week here. We come during every visit, but agreed that we would cross it off our list for the future. Service and atmosphere are just what they used to be. We like the local feel of the place. Meals are big and I know organic ingredients and good fish cost more. Something is... More

We have a house in Sea Pines so we don't often ad-venture out of our usual haunts at our end of the island. (Eating in, overlooking the ocean, makes even leftovers tasty!) That being said, we headed over to Roastfish to give it a try. The atmosphere isn't great, kind of dingy & we sat at a table without overhead... More

After fixing this restaurant on Trip Advisor a few years back, it's been one we love going to every trip to Hilton Head. We feel in love with the sweet potato cornbread. Portion sizes are okay, enough to fill you up but not enough to take any left overs home with my hungry crew. Atmosphere is casual, NOTHING fancy and... More

We arrived about 5:30 a party of four and were seated right away. This place is kind of small and it did get crowded before we left. Basic hardwood table & chairs nothing fancy. Checked this place out because of several good reviews. Everybody in our party ordered something different and all meals were good. Did'nt care for the cornbread... More

We've been here many times and been very pleased. We are locals. They were out of a lot of things on menu including salad and ranch dressing as well as gumbo. Honestly the food wasn't nearly as good as in visits past. Should have been a clue when there was not a line as usual outside. There's a clear issue... More

Visited yesterday, the worst and very expensive food I ever had...the fish was old and smelling, the cabbage was soak in cheap oil and the cornbread was from another lifetime (no corn and too much sugar). Wait staff was unappreciative. She appeared to be on dope. Would not go back.

I would give this place zero stars if possible. First of all, the wait for a table was not long, but once seated, we waited over an hour for our food, which was brought out incorrectly. To our surprise, all those tables around us also had incorrect plates brought to them. They were out of the specials, as well as... More

We made reservations for a large party of 10 for 7p and when we arrived, I sensed there would be a problem since the hostess did not even make eye contact with us for several minutes. Finally I asked if she was the hostess and if our table was ready. She informed us that it would be a few minutes,... More
