The location of the place is great and surrounding views were great, but we couldn't see anything from our table. The waiter was wonderful and very attentive. The food, however, just wasn't anything special. I had a shrimp pasta in a cream sauce and it didn't have much flavor. The shrimp tasted boiled and thrown in at the end. I... More

Came here on a recommendation from our cab driver. Very busy bar/restaurant situated on the edge of the water so stunning views. Food was average and probably a little overpriced for what was standard pub food. Worth a visit for the sunset

The food and atmosphere are both impressive. Hunter was our waitress and was very good. The portions are very big, we ordered the Almond crusted Mahi and expected a 6-8 oz, portion, turns out we got two pieces that size. Good value for the money.

We were in Hilton Head for a quick Spring Break and made it to the the Old Oyster Factory. just in time for an amazing sunset! All of the staff, from the hostesses, our server Gemma, and even the young man who brought the food to our table, were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Needless to say, our corvina and swordfish... More

Went with our family here during spring break and were so glad that we did. We were seated by a window overlooking the water just in time for sunset. Such beautiful scenery. The menu is geared towards seafood, but there is something for all tastes. Our table ordered salmon (very good), oysters (excellent), and a pasta dish with scallops and... More

Will be returning often, perfect from the start which included Happy Hour at the bar and then on to a beautiful evening with dinner on the outside deck. The staff from the minute we walked in the door were more attentive than most, bartender made sure we were familiar with the happy hour menu and asked again if we had... More

We had a Friday reservation and were seated on time with a smile. The view is always calming and peaceful and the main reason to go. The food is average and a little pricy. For me it's about nostalgia going here from my college days in the 80's.
