Worth the Wait

We have talked about eating at Redfish for several years and the year we made it! It was worth it. I had Cobia special and my wife had Mahi Mahi. We were both very pleased with our choices. Calamari appetizer was also excellent. We brought our own wine ($20 corkage fee), but they seemed to have a... read more

Great place with very good service. Slightly pricy. Best lobster mac & cheese I've ever had! We would go back!

I travel coast to coast throughout the year. Redfish was one of the best experiences to date. Betsy was my server and she was hands down the most personable server I have ever had. She helped me pair wines with my meal. The food was beyond delicious. I will most definitely return in the future!

Came here last year and loved it. Was our favorite night out. This year was the second visit and will be back here next year. Check for jazz nights. If you want music reserve for the room where the group plays. You can hear them from the other section but this area is more intimate and only a few table,... More

If you live in Hilton Head or are traveling through it, don't miss a stop at Redfish. The food, atmosphere, and service from knowledgeable Betsy is just great. Visited with friends and we all got different items, Shrimp & Grits, Crab Cakes, Sea Bass & Ribs. All really good and prepared well, some creative nuances, but not over the top.... More

Loved everything! Beautiful decor, extensive wine selection, lovely place. Four of us had Chilean Sea Bass, Scallops, Kansas city strip and a Hawaiin big eye tuna. Each of us were very happy. Service from Arielle was phenomenal!

We travel from Colorado every year to Hikton Head, we stop at Red Fish every time. You must try the Chilean Sea Bass with wasabi. The mixture of flavor is the absolute best!

The new location is busy but the food is not-as good as the south of the island location. Seems they have their act a bit together but I prefer the other location.food is a bit pricey and no happy hour specials at the bar.

We were in Hilton Head for vacation last week and had another excellent dinner at Redfish. This is probably our 4th or 5th time eating at this restaurant and it has never let us down. I would have given Redfish 5 starts, but the service was off this time. Our appetizers arrived and we had yet to receive our drinks... More
