Dinner at Redfish

Very good food and service. Big portions. Always a bit hit with our family. The seafood burger is fantastic but very large so worth sharing or just skipping the bun. The deserts are always amazing.

Unassuming from its location, hidden and looking like an upscale strip mall. Don't be fooled. Interior is beautiful. The wine bar is great in rich colors and setting. The restaurant continues with a warm feel. The menu is complete with full range of appetizers and seafood entrees. Always pay attention to the specials. The full bar compliments the meals. The...

This place was the best dinner we had on the island! We all tried their specials, and didn't leave anything behind. Their salads and entrees were awesome, and we would definitely go back. A little expensive, but worth it.

We have been remiss in visiting this restaurant but will make it a 'must do' when on the island. Betsy was our waitress and she was very helpful with suggestions; knowledgable about the menu and daily specials. We are not wine drinkers but there is a full bar so that's nice as well. Our party had one of the daily... More

Red Fish is one of my favorite restaurants on Hilton Head. Good music on Wednesday night, good food (if you overlook the over-peppered Caribbean rice which overpowered the delicate flavor of the snapper), but the worst was the family with a 2 year-old and a 5 year-old who should not have been there, and 2 teens who contributed to the...

In the last couple of years this has become our must-go-to restaurant. Besides it's cuisine, which is quite good and varied, and it's atmosphere which we like very much, is the wine situation. They have a "store" area in the entrance and you can peruse many wines and purchase one, take it into the restaurant, and pay a relatively modest... More

We visited this restaurant based on a recommendation. Food was good and there was a wide selection of seafood. That said, I wasn't sure if we were in a wine shop, a jewelry store or a restaurant. In addition to the restaurant, Redfish has a wine shop on one side of the dining room and a jewelry store on the... More

We dined here on Sunday evening. Service was good, the wine list is extensive and atmosphere is upscale. I had the crab cakes which were excellent and my husband had a fresh fish special. We also enjoyed a delicious appetizer of fried green tomatoes and mozzarella cheese drizzled with balsamic vinagarette.

We have been here a few times before but it's been a few years. I have always enjoyed it and made it a point to visit on our current vacation in hilton head and was not disappointed. Each member in our party of four had a different entree.. Shrimp and grits is always one of my favorite but my son... More

The salmon was excellent. We returned a second evening just to dine on the appetizer Avocado Bacon Toast. Great service. Lovely food and wine.
