Went, again, after a delightful visit, last year. Staff was out with the flu, but we were greeted by a friendly partner, who worked us through Chef David being the only one there. Our most friendly and capable waitress arrived and we were kept happy with the special corn bread -- you'll either love it or not -- I did.... More

We returned to Chef David's this week so our friends could experience the great food. Little did we know what a treat we were going to have with Patty as our server. We were given tales of Hilton Head long past, with such passion and delight. We laughed and sat dumbstruck with some of her stories. We met Chef David... More

You are not going to stumble on this place by accident. A friend who has spent most winters in Hilton Head for the last nine years just discovered it – and what a find. The Chef David of the restaurant’s name is Chef David Vincent Young. Chef David was at Sea Shack until 2008 and opened RoastFish and Cornbread in... More

Entree was very good, loved the wall murals and restaurant ambiance. Wait for food was extremely long and many menu items not available. Though desserts were advertised as home made the key lime pie was terrible. Waitress said the owner/chef was having personal problems and that he hadn't been able to make the desserts. The restaurant does not have a... More

No white tablecloths nor chain restaurant fripperies, but real honest fresh food served in a happy environment. Popcorn shrimps and half blackened scallops to start- both delicious, followed by fresh fish of the day Cod and Red snapper, both tasted so fresh and excellent. Do not miss! Bring your own wine, no corkage.

Roastfish and Cornbread is among the best restaurants on Hilton Head Island. It is not a "white tablecloth" restaurant, but rather a super casual, funky place owned and run by a chef who truly cares about the Gullah heritage he represents. Chef David's food is OUTSTANDING, as he makes everything himself, using the freshest (organic when available) ingredients and local... More

We stopped at Roastfish & Cornbread after a 3 hr. dolphin boat excusion. We ate light the Fish sandwich was great, but Lima beans were outstanding. Bring your own beer! We tried this place on the recommendation of Captain Kathy from Island Explorer and were not disappointed.

This restaurant was recommended to us on our last trip to Hilton Head and we are really glad we went. It is a bit off the main road but easy to find. The atmosphere and decor is a modern twist low country and not like your cookie-cutter chains. We had the seafood gumbo which was on the hot side and... More

What can I say? Every thing we ordered was wonderful. The whole flounder was incredible. The savory chutney was great. The greens were great. The fried seafood platter was great. The sweet potato cornbread was extremely good. AND Amazon Local has a coupon for it! Don't expect to be seated and fed quickly, but that's life in Hilton Head. And... More
