My friends and I filled 3 tables in a private room recently. Our terrific server Arielle, wrote separate checks for us, never complained, served us all in a timely fashion and the food was wonderful. Such accommodating service from the wait staff.

Put simply, they didn't meet expectations given their high ratings. I called ahead of time to inquire about the wait. Being told there was no wait, I did not ask for a reservation. After arriving, initial impressions were less than favorable. We were asked if we had a reservation, which we did not, after which were seated in what appeared... More

Many restaurants hide their Early dining menu and the waiters treat you with disdain. Not at Red Fish. The quality of the food is superb and the service excellent. The salmon was done perfectly and tasted great - perhaps the best we have ever eaten. Don't miss it!

My wife and I dined here during a Spring vacation. We reserved through Open Table and were seated as soon as we showed up. I cannot remember our server's name, but he was great. He was very knowledgeable and attentive without being hovering. My wife had her usual Filet because she does not eat seafood. It was very good. I... More

We had dinner at this restaurant twice during our visit to Hilton Head. Our first visit was with friends who highly recommended the place and they were right. The early bird menu (available from 5pm to 5:45pm) is perfect. With a salad, glass of house wine and about 6-8 entrees to choose from I enjoyed shrimp and grits, my husband... More

When one enters this restaurant, it feels like being in a romantic European eatery, especially if you wisely book the "wine" room, where diners are surrounded by award-winning vintages. They boast an extensive wine list that has won Wine Spectator's "Best of Award of Excellence." After meals, diners may also browse the on-site retail wine shop, which boasts more than... More
