I had been to this restaurant several times and it just keeps getting worse. I will not come back. The food was terrible and what made it worse was the price you were charged for such terrible food. Even the salad was disgusting...

We recently dined at the Old Fort Pub. This elegant restaurant accommodated our party of 10 in a beautiful quiet section of the dining room. Our waiter, Jim, was most knowledgeable, attentive and helpful. The food was excellent and the pace of the meal outstanding. Our party loved the menu offerings especially the She Crab soup and local fish offerings.... More

A "must-do" on your visit to Hilton Head. Try to get reservations before sunset as it is amazing! Excellent service, very good menu, and great atmosphere. We had a party of 8 and each person had a great meal.Among recommended items, She Crab soup, roasted calamari, Asparagus, Lump Crab salad, Carolina Trout, New Zealand lamb, Filet Mignon, and Pork Loin....

We had dined here several years ago while visiting Hilton Head & enjoyed this restaurant, so while vacationing in HH last month, we decided to return. What a sad experience! We did have a good time sitting at the bar while we were waiting for our table. The bartender was great.........very friendly. He definitely made our wait a pleasant one.... More

Looking for a restaurant with everything done right? Then OFP is the place to come to. Each year when we visit HHI, a stop at OFP is necessary. To make it amazingly special, ask for a seating at sunset and if Mother Nature cooperates, you are in for something very special. Why do we like OFP? You know the food... More
