We have beautiful water views where dolphins and pelicans frequent. Large hand-painted murals of Mediterranean scenes adorn the walls. The spacious rooms have large dark-stained wood beams and Tuscan patterned carpet. We have all-you-can-eat pasta specials for under $10 for the hardy appetite (choice of 3 pastas and 6 sauces). We also have nightly selections for fresh seafood often including Grouper, Sea Bass, Mahi-Mahi, Salmon, Covina, Cobia plus more. These are prepared differently based on what you like. For the meat lovers we have Prime Rib, Steaks, and BBQ Ribs. Happy Hour in our lounge is the happiest on the Island with $2.50 Kingfisher drafts, $3 wine and $4 well drinks -- from 5-8 daily. Plus we have the best raw oysters and peel-&-eat shrimp at terrific prices. (See menu button above) Cap-off the evening with Las Vegas quality Comedy in the upstairs showroom. Free and convenient close private parking lot. Serving dinner from 5pm to 9pm. GPS? Enter 18 Harbourside Ln,HH, SC.

Stopped in tonight for happy hour drinks and appetizers. Both were excellent and the bartender/ waitress Tina was helpful and friendly. Provided excellent advice on the appetizers and outstanding service. Atmosphere was relaxing and other patrons enjoyable , would definitely return.

The staff seemed to be all new, asked to speak with the manager and he agreed he was having a problem with the kitchen, bar and wait staff. Will try again when Tina is back in the bar.

I reached out to this individual to learn more. October 18 was the date at the Kingfisher. We did have an employee issue that night and we did rectify it soon after. This incident was isolated to this person and Server section in the lounge. This person came back to the Kingfisher again and had a wonderful experience. Hasn't posted... More

We went to Kingfisher on our last night in Hilton Head. I guess there is a reason why after visiting Hilton Head 8 times we had not heard of it before. They have a early bird and happy hour specials. I think the only way for them to get customers. We had the Boom Boom Shrimp, not close at all... More

I was called by our manager on this one. We tried to work with them to determine what would address their complaints. We gave concessions, but they wanted more consessions for food items which were fine. Then they through-out Trip Advisor and stated they were going to post. It is sad when restaurants are blackmailed. We don't capulate when this... More

Three of us enjoyed delicious seafood on a busy Friday night. We had a table overlooking the waterway. Attractive surroundings, busy bar area/happy hour menu for those who wanted a more casual dinner.

We have always enjoyed The Kingfisher on our anual trip to Hilton Head. Food is fresh and delicious and Happy Hour is an excellent value. The oysters and crab legs were superb as always. Last night we arrived to find the room completely full with a group event. Willyshia, our server, cleared a table quickly and assured us that she... More

Really, I'd give this a 2 1/2 stars if I was allowed.... We went on a low season, low day-of-week night, the five of us. Locals, but first time there. First impression: dated, early 1980's kind of feel. Carpet a bit worn, the décor not current but not old kitchy cool either. We asked for a water view. Honestly, I've... More

While the carpets are clean, they are showing some wear. This January the restaurant gets a facelift. The Ceasar dressing is home made. Has the hint of anchovies like it should. Not the store-bought stuff. Kids sometimes don't like the hint of anchovies. Thanks for the kind words about your server. Todd -Owner More

I have visited Kingfisher Restaurant on numerous occasions during visits to Hilton Head. It was my favorite "go to" place for Happy Hour drinks and appetizers, especially their fresh shrimp. On my most recent visit to the lounge I had a terrible experience with the lack of service. For approximately 10 minutes no one offered to serve me despite plenty... More
