A perfect place to watch the sunset while enjoying excellent food. The service and ambiance are top rate at this Hilton Head restaurant. We visited the island for two weeks and this was our favorite restaurant. We all loved our dinners, She Crab soup, salads, chicken, and bouillabaisse were all amazing. Lovely all around.

This is fine dining at its best on Hilton Head. White tablecloths, professional wait staff, extensive wine list and great menu selections. The she crab soup was a fantastic start. Scottish salmon and seafood cakes were perfectly prepared. Add the view on the marsh at sunset and its a must while at HH

The wife and I went for Sunday brunch. The food and service were outstanding but the clientele was a bit too senior. Frankly, I'm glad we didn't have the kids with us. By no means is this a pub as the name would imply.

What can I say that hasn't been said. Just a spectacular experience any time we've visited. Have done lunch, happy hour and dinner and never been the least bit disappointed. Spectacular food and service, and the views ain't too shabby either. Just go and soak it in.

The Old Fort Pub is all about the view and the setting. Get here for sunset, and reserve a table next to the window. It's truly lovely. Service is excellent, and waiter was attentive to gluten free needs, although they don't have a separate gluten free menu. Food is good, not fabulous, but fine and served in an attractive manner.

Don’t let the name fool you, Old Fort Pub is not just any run of the mill “pub”. While vacationing in Hilton Head last weekend with good friends, the concierge at the Marriott's Grande Ocean recommended dinner here at sunset. We were all delighted, and honestly could not have been more pleased with our dining experience. The food was fresh,... More

When the weather cooperates, The Old Fort Pub is a serene place for an evening cocktail watching the setting sun. Sunsets can be spectacular on the right night. Needless to say our visit was on a cold rainy Wednesday. The staff didn't have much to look forward to but that didn't affect their spirits. The service was impeccable as always.... More

We had heard that the Old Fort Pub was the place on Hilton Head Island to go for sea food. We arrived as the last glows of sunset faded from Skull Creek and the view from the large windows overlooking the creek grew dark. Jim our waiter was extremely friendly and introduced us to the menu.
