We visited as a last minute decision without reservations and get seated within 20 minutes, Service was good with very good waiter. We ordered and were served promptly, however the overall feeling is slight chaos in the room as all were working at a fast pace and while it all stayed together, the feeling that it could all come apart...

Warm southern hospitality and very good food. Our server Nancy was personable and professional. We had a fried seafood sampler with scallops, shrimp and red snapper. Pretty tasty and not heavy. Kids had chicken fingers and sides of the beans and sweet potato cornbread. They were very happy. We were comped an extra side of fries and a mini Key... More

While visiting here, I ran into this restaurant by mistake. The food was absolutely amazing and my waiter was very kind. However, as I was leaving the manager was making small talk and asked where I was from. After telling him, he stated "I don't like people from that state." Needless to say, I will never be going back because... More

The restaurant is located away from the main road and worth the trip. We arrived early for our reservation, but were taken immediately to our table. Our waitress brought us menus and a wine cooler for a bottle of wine that we brought with us. (No corking fee) After giving us a few minutes to look over the menu, she... More

Last year while at Hilton Head, we were told by locals to go to this place for traditional Gullah Food. Boy were they right! Great food, interesting atmosphere etc....This year we went, and while the food was as good as we remember, the service was terrible. We waited nearly 40 minutes or in wine hours....1 bottle for our meal. Oddly... More

Forget the low country boil and run to make your reservation at Chef David's (BYOB, too). We discovered this restaurant about 5 years ago and can't miss it when we go to the Island. The fish is all fresh. My favorite is the roast fish or the oysters; both perfectly seasoned and moist. The sides are equally flavorful. The collard... More

This is our 3rd year visiting Roastfish & Cornbread and it was great! Fresh, unique and you can taste the cooking passion Chef David possesses in his food. You can get a reasonable meal or spend a higher amount if you wish but there is something for everyone here. Very kid friendly. The decor is very interesting and unique. I... More

Our family of 5 visited here for the first time. My son said his po boy alligator meal rocked! My other son enjoyed his double serving of corn dog with fries and mac & cheese. I thought the seafood trio was great with small blackened oysters, crab cake and shrimp. You can choose other items to make up the trio... More
