Hilton Head Crab Cakes

Nice atmosphere and this restaurant can accommodate large groups. Food is good but I would avoid the crab cakes unless you like bread filler and little crab. The crab cakes were disappointing for sure. Try something else.

As a professional chef and restauranteur, I could be rather snobbish at times because I am really sick and tired of going out to dinner and being disappointed and spending a lot of money. When you go out, sometimes you get good food, bad service, so-so atmosphere, etc. Here they have managed to execute all three components: atmosphere, food, and... More

We were celebrating our 45th anniversary. The service and the food were great. I had the super fresh swordfish special. I have food allergies and they were very accommodating about preparing my dinner just right. Our waitress congratulated us several times and gave us friendly, excellent service. The view was awesome. It was a wonderful place to celebrate our special... More

The staff and service were awesome! The food was incredible, loved the scallops! Atmosphere was beautiful - sat outside with a great view then took pictures on the back patio around sunset time. Turned out gorgeous! We will be going back again before our vacation is over!!

We called and got reservations and we asked to be seated upstairs in the same spot this time. They graciously accommodated us! 8 adults and 5 children. Our server was great!! Our food was... More

We had our best meal best view, and best time in Hilton head at the old oyster factory. A special thank you goes to our server Earl even though I kept calling him Roy! He really took care of us and made us feel that we were his own special table.

First and foremost eating here at the Old Oyster Factory was the pinnacle of restaurants while on vacation at Hilton Head, S.C. The service was outstanding and the staff was very professional. Our waiter was named Petey and what a great job he did in giving us out of towners a great experience while giving guidance for our taste. The... More
