Seafood paradise

Week the oysters were as advertised plentiful and awesome. We had a great lunch and a nice setting to boot. There were six of us so we all had something different and everything was good. Happy atmosphere and good food. what more could you want.

We have dined at the Oyster House for several years. The food is varied and can accomodate all tastes. The setting is one of the best on the Island and the sunsets are wonderful.

We made reservations on OpenTable for 6:15. We walked in at that time and our table was ready so we were taken directly to our table. Out of all the reservations I've made, I believe that's a 1st but from what I understand they handle all their reservations like that. Our server (Petey) greeted just as quickly and for the... More

A bit pricy but so worth it service and food were great. Great view of the waterway that came back by the restraunt. Didn't see any Dolphins this time though

The tuna nachos were incredible! My favorite item by far and I would come back just for them! Beautiful presentation and the taste was just even better than I could imagine (think tuna, ginger, wasabi, spicy sauce, with the crunch of a nacho). Wow, so good! Everything we had here was great though. We ended up here thanks to our... More

I wish I remembered the name of our waitress because she was the saving grace of the evening - she was lovely and attentive. Whomever has given this restaurant more than an average review must, in my opinion, be from so far in the interior that this is the only seafood restaurant they've ever visited. There was nothing bad about... More

The food and service was excellent and the environment /view rounded out the experience to make it a wonderful dinner. It was our wedding anniversary and we wanted to choose a restuarant that we thought would be special. We were not disappointed. Our server Isabel was very very nice and her service was great. My wife had the lobster special... More

Had a ladies luncheon here and I was extremely disappointed. It was fixed meal so the choices were limited. Chicken, Mahi Mahi or shrimp. Now I know that Mahi is not native to SC but to serve the same square anyone can buy in their local grocers freezer section is a sin for a restaurant. Adding bread crumbs and almond... More

Classic southern seafood restaurant located bayside on HHI. Dined outside and the view and overall atmosphere were awesome. As were the hush puppies! All items ordered were superb-from seafood platters to chicken. Very attentive and polite wait staff. Pricing commensurate with quality of food. Would definitely recommend and visit again when on the island.

We always visit the Old Oyster Factory on every trip to Hilton Head. This time was no exception as we had four fine dinners there. This restaurant has wonderful waterfront views and it is comfortable for a nice enjoyable meal. Although usually quite busy it is not noisy. In my opinion the meals are a step up from the usual...
