Not the best night for the sunset, it was rainy. But the view would be awesome on a clear night. Our server was very informative and helpful. The early bird special was so yummy!

The Old Oyster Factory is very convenient to our resort, Marriott's Surf Watch, and we enjoyed a great meal there. Service was prompt, friendly, & consistent. My wife is now "gluten-free," and the staff and menu were helpful in her ordering. I had seafood gumbo and boiled shrimp. The shrimp were perfect, large, firm, & cooked just right. The view... More

Excellent food and service. We had a table right by the window overlooking the creek and the marsh. The shrimp were fresh and sweet.

We were visiting with family with our 8 month old grandson and his mom, and this restaurant far exceeded our expectations. Our server (Petey) was so acomodating and the food was outstanding. A family of fish lovers we cannot say enough about the qualtiy of food. The atmosphere was upscale for a family place but comfortable enough to have our... More

We enjoyed a birthday dinner during their sunset dining. There were 4 of us and we all enjoyed the experience. The beef and shrimp kabob was excellent as was the mahi mahi. Our server James was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. Received a glass of wine, choice of soup or salad and entrée for $17. Excellent value, great view and delicious... More

This is a great place for you guessed it, Oysters. Located on the water. Has a perfect view for sunsets. Also has a lively atmosphere.

A really nice seafood restaurant with great views of the water. We come back as often as we come to visit Hilton Head.

The building is really neat with lots of wood and great big windows, which provide a great view of the marsh and water. Unfortunately, the food and service has gone downhill! The hush puppies use to be served hot and were wonderful, but tonight they were cold and not so good. The rib-eye steak was served on top a potato/broccolini... More

Our daughter always gives us a gift certificate for the Old Oyster Factory before we leave the cold weather in Western NY to make our annual trip to HHI. We always look forward to our visit and meal
