Everything we had was very good. From the grilled shrimp to the fresh oysters on the 1/2 shell. The place was very clean. Warm weather would be great to shuck steamed oysters on the tables with the hole in the middle, outside. The Broadcreek scenery at sunset is also something to see.

We're on our annual trip to HHI and we always have our arrival day dinner here - saves us from having to think about where to go after a long drive. They always have an excellent selection of draft beer and the bartender was friendly and attentive. It's restaurant week, so they offered only a 4-course, prix fixe menu. We... More

I took a group of business associates to this establishment for dinner. The location is nice with the view of the water, and the building itself is interesting; but the food is totally lacking. It's just uninspired and uninteresting. This is clearly a place that lives on the uninformed tourists. Too bad since we had just opposite experience while staying... More

We ate here last night on the first night of restaurant week. They had two menus. One for sunset dinner and one for later and sunset. We ordered off the sunset menu and glad we did. Lighter choices than the other choice but was fantastic plus we had one and a half dozen raw oysters which we really liked. The... More

The Old Oyster Factory is a wonderful experience and a highlight of our vacation - it's always busy, so be sure to make a reservation! We sat on the back deck while we waited for our table - there's an outdoor bar and live entertainment - not only live music (which was really good), but also a juggler who was... More

Arrived early in their dinner hours but had to wait. Did so at the bar & sampled the happy hour special of oysters on the half shell. Watched the sun set over the marsh. Was a mild night & number of patrons took advantage of buckets of steamed oysters on the deck. For dinner ordered the fried seafood dinner. Could... More

While on a business trip to Hilton Head, we ate at the Old Oyster Factory on Friday evening. The restaurant has a fantastic ambiance and really felt warm and inviting. Tables were nicely spaced. Our waiter, Roger, was very attentive and informative about both the food and the area. For me, it was the best of the seafood I had... More

This is such a pretty setting and so enjoyed the sunset. One of our favorite places to eat when we are in Hilton Head. My husband had the cheese grits and shrimp, and he said it was great. I had the almond crusted mahi-mahi with cheese grits instead of mashed potatoes. It was delicious.
