Our first visit to The British Open Pub. Great casual atmosphere for the vacationers looking for comfortable dining experience. Gotta try the Scottish Eggs and Baked Brie appetizers. I had the Pecan encrusted Cod. Lobster Pot Pie.......scrumptious . Huge staff was so friendly. We really enjoyed Rebecca, our waitress. Highly recommend this Restaurant.

Nice family/golf atmosphere. The drink specials are amazing. Speaking of amazing ... The fish and chips are some of the best you'll have state side .... And then some. Do yourself a favor ... If you have a casual lunch or dinner head to the British open.

just average-house salad and hamburger. The Reuben appetizers was okay. But one meal- the royal Berkdale's steak and Mushroom pie was outstanding. It came in a crock that they pour over the rectangular pie crust at your seat- wonderful. The smell was awesome. It was a hearty beef stew, really tasted great, matched with a Guinness, really good. I wanted... More

Came here on our first night. Not very impressed. You would have thought by the look on the outside that inside would be nice. Looks a little dated and needs some improving. Service is slack and food was blah and bland. I don't think anyone in our group was wowed. There are a lot of places on Hilton Head doing... More

I apologize if you didn't feel welcome. As one of the partners, I was working that night and standing behind the bar facing the front door. I was on my way to greet you, however one of the servers busing a table was closer. Our kitchen does close at ten pm. Even though the restaurant was empty that doesn't mean... More

We are regulars here and love their Fish n Chips, Shrimp N Chips, Seafood Platter, pot pies, burgers and beer selections. Their bread pudding is just okay.

The food and service was average. There was not anything special to warrant a return family visit. We liked watching the soccer/football game. When I asked everyone their vote, average was the selection.
