The menu is creative & the food was delicious. Our server was knowledgeable & helpful but unobtrusive. I would describe the atmosphere as understated elegance,yet comfortable & romantic. The winter vegetable prima vera was served in a rich red sauce. the roasted pork was perfectly seared & the swordfish was the best I've ever eaten. The Barley Pumpkin Risotto appetizer... More

Read Allen Kellers review. He nailed it. Been stopping by for over 10 years Awesome setting and unforgetable sunsets (you and your friends will use your pictures as screen savers). The sea island bouillabaisse is quite possibly the best seafood dish on the island and maybe my favorite EVER. Special place for special times

We have been going to Old Fort Pub for as long as we've visited Hilton Head -- 15+ years -- but had not been there in about five years. Things change so much in resort areas and we were hoping to find it to be as good as ever, and we were not disappointed. We reserved a table and were... More

Never had a bad meal here. Magnificent views, perfect service and really great food. Not cheap but I think the best (or close to) on the Island. Try the fish or steak.

Christmas Eve dinner was wonderful. Returned after 5 years to see how the old Fort stacked up against newer restaurants and was pleasantly surprised. Everything was perfect from the minute we were seated. The sea island bouillabaisse and prime pork loin was cooked to perfection. I'm a wine snob and thoroughly enjoyed the Paul Hobb Cabernet. Do yourself a favor... More
