The Kingfisher Seafood, Pasta & Steakhouse is a casual Old World Mediterranean décor waterfront restaurant located center-island in beautiful Shelter Cove Harbour. 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.

First time to Hilton Head and to Pelicans Point. Will NOT eat here again. The service was terrible and not at all professional. The food is not worth going back for. Don't waste your time and money.

I am so Sorry you had a unfavorable experience. Did our manager stop by your table? Supposed too. Did you use our new waiter call buttons on the tables to page your Server? I really can't address anything on your review because there are no specifics. What food, what service issues. Usually when there is an issue the post includes... More

We had a fabulous meal tonight with extraordinary service. Our lovely server , Andrea, was very sweet & attentive. We felt very good about our experience especially since we have been to 3 very high end places since we got here and were disappointed with the service at all of them.

A bit of a surprise to find the Kingfisher restaurant on Hilton Head Island under a new name (as of March 2015). However, the food and prices are very good; and the service provided by Gaew was EXCELLENT. We arrived in time for Happy Hour and enjoyed the peel and eat shrimp (12 for $5) with good prices on the... More

Band was great and the food was ok,needed seasoning. Portions were small for the price and side salads were extra. Not worth the price

We offer 15 entrees for $15 or less for the budget minded. Steaks and fresh seafood have a higher cost where prices range between $18 and $26. We buy quality meats, not the cheap stuff that we know some restaurants buy. Some entrees do include a salad such as pasta dishes and Early Birds. Our main entrees come with 2... More

My family and I ate here a few weeks ago and had the best experience. The food was awesome and our server was the best! Our servers name was Anthony. He was a very personable young man. You can't beat the location either, right on the water! we will definitely be coming back when we are in hilton head again.

My boyfriend and I took a vacation to Hilton Head Island this past April and decided to dine at Pelican's Point, being that it was close by. We saw the reviews and were sceptical but the night couldn't have been better. The food was great. I had the pecan encrusted salmon which our waitor (Anthony) recommended. My boyfriend had the...

I've been on Hilton Head for almost a year now but hesitated trying Kingfisher because of the poor reviews. I was given a gift certificate to Pelican's Point however, and tried to give it a chance. The restaurant was mostly empty despite it being dinner time and the dark blue paint job made it look like a really depressing cave.... More

I reached out to this person and asked more questions. No response. We attempted to pull up the record for this evening. We looked for redemptions of gift certificates. We could not find a receipt that matched the description of this posting. The patrons who have seen our remodel love it. Looks rich and warm with the blues and stained... More

Now known as Pelicans Point, this was our first time back in years. Stopped going because the place had lost its charm. The good- great views and pleasant live acoustic music. Cheap wine. The bad- food was unremarkable, not bad mind you, just not anything special. Wine was low level "grocery store" type selections. The bumbling- our young server (... More

I am so sorry you experienced a bumbling Server. He feels really bad about having a cork screw that did not have a knife integrated to remove the cover. The wine this guest purchased is not available in grocery stores and is only available at prestigious restaurants. It is a quality wine. However we do carry wine selections which are... More

While on vacation at Hilton Head Island, my wife, older daughter and I dropped in for an early dinner. We were unaware of the name change to Pelican Point, but that didn't deter us.
