A great meal

Great food and ambience. Loved the fact that you can choose a wine from the many many on offer. The local catch of the day was probably the best fish we have ever had. Bacon avocado toast as an appetizer was delicious. Staff friendly and very knowledgeable. Definitely recommended.

During a recent vacation with friends and family on Hilton Head Island, SC we visited Redfish and really enjoyed our meals. The Chilean Seabass was outstanding and they have a great wine selection. We left at closing and then realized my wife left her purse. We contacted management and the owner called stating they had it. The next day it... More

We've been vacationing in Hilton Head for the past 13 years and every single year we enjoy our last night dining at Red Fish. We have LOVED their menu and service over the years, but this year, something has changed. I ordered the scallops with lobster mac an cheese as I do every single year. In the past, there were...

There was nothing wrong with our meal at Redfish it was good, but not memorable. We had a reservation and got in and to our table with no issues. It is a pretty restaurant but it did have brown paper over the tablecloth. Not a big deal but just felt a little tacky for a more upscale restaurant. We ordered,... More

Redfish never disappoints. I have been at least half a dozen times and the food, wine selection and dessert are delicious. The waitress, Betsy, really knew her wine list and was very courteous as usual. We always request her section.

I always make a point of dining at Redfish when vacationing in Hilton Head. This experience did not disappoint. I had the sea bass, which was excellent, & my husband had the delicious lobster mac and cheese,. Our server, Betsy, helped us choose from the vast selection of wines. Looking forward to another visit next summer.

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
